Chantell & James’ Wedding at Hatley Castle & Bear Mountain in Victoria BC
Wow did I ever enjoy this wedding. After flying in the day before, I got to spend a solid day with the wedding party and close family of Danielle and Matt, getting acquainted and just having a good time. Big kid Dunakaroos, rap battles, candy raids, thigh deodorant, sunshine, tears, mini golf and tons of laugher are a few of the words that come to mind for this wonderful celebration at The Harvest Golf Club in Kelowna. A big shout out to the vendors who helped make this possible: Venue: The Harvest Golf Club Flowers: Jennifer Simpatico Hair/Makeup: Jenna Jones & Team Cake: Cakery Arts DJ: DJ Krucial K - Kalani was so helpful to me at the reception, highly recommended!
Here are a few favourites from the day
Sometimes you meet people and you just instantly get each other, you share a sense of humour, a way of looking at the world, maybe a few common interests. That's what it was like when I first "met" Kaylyn and Aaron over Skype, they were taking a lunch break from skiing and were skyping me from their phone in their car. These two are wonderful, authentic, intentional people, as were their friends and family, and we had such a great time working together. Those same words could totally describe their wedding day; authentic, intentional, filled with laughter and tears and wonderful moments. Everything was intentional, from their guests all building Kaylyn's bouquet 1 flower at a time, to everyone taking part in them "tying the knot" and the words and the moments that were shared during these exchanges. The get together was part of an ongoing, week long celebration of their relationship with each other and their closest friends and family that started in Victoria, headed to Tofino, and then finished off where they live in Nelson. We were treated to an incredible meal with loads of wine and tons of laughs. It was all hosted at a venue that was so well suited to this type of intimate and intentional gathering that is just off the Malahat called Morningside Estate. The beautiful, personalized ceremony was performed by Barbara Densmore who really made the ceremony feel special and unique to Kaylyn and Aaron. Okay, enough gushing, onto some photos.
