Guys! It’s been a while but I’m back!
I’m going to share one of my favourite weddings of the season! It’s one of my favourite for many reasons including… Danielle and Dave = Awesome. They’re just the most easy-going down-to-Earth people and their wedding party… absolutely hilarious! There were a lot of laughs, spilled champagne and incredible dance moves all day!
September weddings in the Okanagan are insanely beautiful. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again… September light is the best. The best.
Danielle and Dave started their day getting ready with their friends in separate cabins at Ponderosa Point Resort in Kaleden. Ponderosa Point is a small little cottage resort on Skaha Lake. All of the cottages are privately owned and the resort has that carefree feeling that reminds me of my childhood vacations. Danielle & Dave are from the area, but with friends and family in mind, turned their local wedding into an Okanagan Destination Wedding. The sun was shining and the wind was blowing. Really blowing. Dorothy in Kansas style wind here.
The ceremony took place overlooking the lake and the wind did not relent. Wind or no wind, the ceremony was beautiful. Dave shed a tear or ten while Danielle walked towards him.
After the ceremony and a few celebratory beverages, we headed to The Old Kaleden Hotel for some wedding party portraits. During this portrait session, I let the groomsmen pick their own pose and let’s just say… they chose an interesting pose! I’m thinking about hiring them as my creative directors at weddings from now on! (That’s a joke!)
The real party started the moment the reception began. Dinner was made by Flambé Catering and it was so delicious! Grandma provided the pies for desert alongside donuts and s’mores! Following dinner, a wild dance party ensued until late in the night!
Enjoy the happiness and hilarity captured in these images!!!
