One of the best things about being a Kelowna wedding photographer is that I get to go to wineries. Lots of wineries. Lots of wine. Even better is that I get to go to amazing wineries like 50th Parallel Estate Winery, nearly every weekend (jealous?). The view is incredible! Just incredible!
Alannah and her ladies prepared themselves for the wedding by drinking champagne and juice with fresh berries at Sparkling Hill. No big deal. The guys got ready in a villa at Predator Ridge. No big deal.
The two met at 50th Parallel Estate Winery for their first look with their wedding party peeking from above on the stomp pad. The ceremony took place overlooking the Okanagan Lake and the rain in the distance. After the ceremony, they were driven away in a 1960’s white Cadillac.
My absolute favourite part of the day was Adam & Alannah’s first dance. If you know me, you know I am a big softie and a family gal. The two danced to a recorded version of a song, sung by Alannah’s late grandfather. There weren’t many dry eyes, including my own!
The truth is, there are so many amazing details about this wedding, that you’ll just have to go ahead and take a peek at this blog post. Make yourself a tea, coffee, or grab a glass of wine and enjoy!
