Oh, these two. They are a strong reminder as to why I chose to pursue a career in the wedding industry. To be apart of such a special day (an understatement) that celebrates the love between two unique individuals, I mean there is a reason why I always cry, guys! Kristina and Thomas were the very first couple to book for the 2016 wedding season. Fortunately, we were able to meet for coffee and get to know one another - this doesn't always happen as many of our couples don't live in the Okanagan. From the first moment you could sense how genuine they were and how important this day was to them. It wasn't just about getting dressed up an dancing the night away, it was about telling their story. So many pieces of the wedding were handmade by them, including: the chalkboard sign, the arbour and centrepieces. A beautiful private property in Naramata provided the most stunning backdrop to showcase the place they call home, and the reception was a beautiful combination of rustic and elegance. Not only that, it was the perfect space to host their 200 guests and celebrate the beginning of their marriage. Also, the homemade jam was incredibly delicious, just saying.
