I met Eric + Brianna at Starbucks 10-ish months before their wedding day. Brianna had just come off a night shift in Vernon and her and Eric drove down to Kelowna just to have a coffee and chat with me. I knew instantly we would get along great! They both have such tender hearts and a light hearted spirit to them. These qualities were even more evident on their wedding day! August 12th, 2017 rolled around and these two tied the knot at the stunning Lake Okanagan Resort on a day where the sun was hidden by smoke from BC wildfires that filled the valley.
We started the day off getting ready in the suites they have on site. Everyone was laughing and getting excited for the day ahead!
Staff from Lake Okanagan picked us up and we headed down to the beach for the ceremony. It was the perfect setting with the lake behind them on the warm summers day. Marjolein Lloyd did an amazing job as their wedding officiant! And before we knew it it was time to kiss the bride!
After the documents were sealed with a kiss we mingled, took family photos and basked in the day.
To start Eric + Brianna’s bridals we took the dock. The smoke created such a unique atmosphere and mood for their photos! I was getting pretty excited. To finish the bridals off we went to the golf course area of the resort and found shade under the poplar trees. When the sun started to peek out from behind the weeping branches I got even more excited!
Once those were completed we started to head inside to the reception hall where breakfast for dinner was waiting for us. (Not before stopping to practice their first dance!)
Appies were served, speeches were started and laughs were abundant!
We finished the day off with some sunset photos down by the lake.
Check out their day and leave them some love below!
