Okanagan Villa Estate Winery Wedding | Kelowna Wedding Photographer
Conor & Cherie’s Okanagan Villa Estate Winery wedding was epic to say the least. We drove up to Kelowna the day before their wedding to scope things out, and meet up with the couple, who we hadn’t met in person before. We kicked off the wedding events by documenting their rehearsal dinner for them. Since so many of their guests were coming in from out of town Cherie’s parents hosted a big pool party and it was just a great way to get to know everyone who was attending!
The next morning we were up early and headed to the Laurel Packing House to set up the photobooth before the wedding began so we didn’t have to worry about it later! Then Brad headed to Hotel El Dorado, while I photographed the girls getting ready before we met up for the first look on the roof top of the El Dorado Hotel. It was a whopping 43 degrees outside on the day of their wedding, so it was almost impossible for the couple to stay outside in the heat for portraits – we actually ended up having to cut them short which was pretty stressful, but we made up for it at sunset, by sneaking off to Knox Mountain for a few more once the temperatures dropped! Their dinner reception was at the Laurel Packing House in Kelowna, which was elegantly decorated with extra long tables and fabulous floral garlands, chandeliers and local black cherry jam as favors. We just adored every little detail!
Cherie & Conor had an absolutely stunning wedding and we couldn’t have been happier than to have been a part of it.
