Being a wedding photographer in Kelowna means mostly shooting in sunshine and warm weather. But, sometimes these Okanagan clouds have a different idea. Check out this beautiful, rainy day wedding at 50th Parallel Estate Winery!
The day began at Predator Ridge Resort where Michelle + Jordan were getting ready with their closest friends and family. Michelle and the girls enjoyed plenty of laughs and smiles while makeup and hair were done to perfection. Jordan and his guys ironed out the perfectly crafted bowties (made by Michelle) and enjoyed a toast together before heading to the Ceremony.
Shawna of White Orchid Weddings did a marvelous job of coordinating the days events! She kept everything going perfectly even with challenging weather. The ceremony took place on the crush pad of 50th Parallel Estate Winery while overlooking the beautiful and foggy Okanagan Lake. Michelle + Jordan accepted the rain as part of the day and stood confidently in the gentle showers while exchanging vows, rings, and sealing it with a kiss!
The Winery is absolutely beautiful and there’s no need to go anywhere else for photos. We and the bridal party tromped around among the vines making good use of some cute and clear umbrellas. We’ve never been so wet during a shoot! But we know rain can be beautiful and we were well prepared with water-proofed cameras in hand.
The reception styled by Vintage Origami Weddings was breathtaking. From the sweetheart chair at the head table, to the giant LOVE marquee sign, everything was picture perfect for this Kelowna wedding. After dinner, we braved the rain once more to grab a few more portraits just outside of the beautiful and modern architecture of 50th Parallel Estate Winery.
Soon it was time for speeches, followed by dancing. Next up was the garter and bouquet toss! After that, Alberta based wedding band duo Mahoney kept the floor moving as the guests danced into the night!
Thanks Michelle + Jordan for having us be your wedding photographer!
