LAUREL PACKINGHOUSE WEDDING | KELOWNA, BC

Samantha and Jared are the modern day version of Barbie and Ken. They met in Biology class and have never stopped pushing each other to chase their dreams – even if they’re on opposite sides of the world.

They chose to have a NYE celebration with their closest family and friends because they knew there was no better date to throw a party, and it was the only time that fit into Samantha’s hectic medical school schedule. Their focus was on guest experience, but also ensuring that the wedding felt like it was truly reflective of them. To achieve this, we included anemones and ranunculus, which are Samantha’s favorite flowers. We also named the table numbers after Big White ski runs, and utilized a pair of vintage skis as their guestbook, as they spend much of their winter on the hill. However, it wouldn’t be a NYE wedding without a bit of flare, such as champagne escort cards and confetti on the tables.

Top it off with an amazing meal from Details Catering and a DJ that keeps the dance floor going all night long, then you have a wedding day that is pretty hard to beat.
