Kelsey + Ryan had a beautiful late summer West Kelowna Wedding on the banks of the Okanagan Lake! They both got ready in the beautiful suites at The Cove Lakeside Resort. The Cove is great for bright, spacious rooms with outstanding views. The girls prepped themselves with much laughter and even some happy tears while the boys enjoyed a bit of the Bluejays game and much laughter themselves.
The ceremony was held on the sandy beach of the Okanagan. The weather that day was looking pretty ominous in the morning, but as we neared the time of the ceremony the rain had stopped and the sun was peaking through the clouds. It was pretty perfect. As a super extra cute touch, the videographer outfitted the family dog with a GoPro video camera! Go to the bottom of our post to find a link to the Wedding Video. Great work by the Videography Team! The entire ceremony was beautiful with much happiness and tears from our couple and guests alike.
After family photos we took the bridal party next door to the Gellatly Nut Farm. It’s a great spot for leafy green Kelowna wedding photos! We led Kelsey + Ryan throughout the farm enjoying rows upon rows of lush arching trees and leaves. On our way back back we stopped at the water’s edge for a few moody shots under the greying sky. But despite the dramatic appearance in the air, K+ R were full of laughter and joy!
The Reception dinner was protected from a few light sprinkles under a beautiful tent complete with generous drapery and romantic chandeliers. The decor was bright and beautiful with rustic and elegant touches of bare wood and white candles, gorgeous flowers, and white linens. After a delicious buffet by The Cove, we snuck out for a few more portraits right at sunset.
After speeches we all moved into The Cove’s Grand Reserve Room for the cake cutting and a brilliant first dance by Kelsey + Ryan. They worked hard preparing for this sweet first dance and it showed. Good moves guys! DJ BMack kept the party going with his impeccable ability to read a crowd and deliver just the right tunes… while singing along to every song, of course!
We had such a fantastic time with these guys and we wish them all the best!
