Words cannot express how fortunate I feel to be able to capture wedding days like this. Angie and I met through Tourism Kamloops, and Ian and I met back in our high school days on a lifeguarding course. Talk about a small world! Angie and Ian met online, and it was nothing but forward with these two.
Angie and Ian share a fur-baby named Toby (who by the way is the cutest and most friendly pup ever!) and they love getting outside and exploring. Angie absolutely loves watching Ian interact with Toby. Ian loves seeing Angie bounce around on skis on powder days up on the ski hill. Ian loves exploring the mountains and skiing while Angie loves to travel and enjoy the occasional lazy Sundays. Some of the things they love most are filling up growlers from Iron Road Brewing, making flatbread pizza at home and mountain biking in Valleyview/Juniper in the evenings. Oh…and don’t forget takeout and a glass of BC rose!
Angie and Ian started their day getting ready with their closes friends and family. It was so important to capture their friends and family, and that is just what we did! Angie and Ian chose to get married at Monte Creek Winery. The day before their wedding, we met at the venue after their rehearsal. The wind was so heavy and it had been raining, so last minute they chose to move their ceremony outdoors to inside the Monte Creek Winery Greenhouse. Let me just tell you that I am a HUGE fan of this venue. It is new and the staff told the bride and groom that they were the first to have their ceremony inside!! I was honoured to capture their ceremony inside this space.
We then moved on to the cocktail hour, family photos, and portraits. We snuck away into the vineyard to get the bridal party photos, and the bride and groom portraits. Considering the day before it was windy and rainy, this day brought the sunshine!! We still endured the wind but were grateful there was no rain. It was important for Angie and Ian to get back to their cocktail hour to mingle with their friends and family, and we did just that. Just before the shutter, TasteFull Excursions took them and their guests to their reception at the Delta Hotels by Marriott Kamloops. Their evening finished with a family-style dinner and some beautiful speeches.
Can we just take a second to admire THESE SHOES!!! The ladies got ready at Angie’s family home before leaving for the ceremony.
The Greenhouse at Monte Creek Ranch is a new addition to their space, and let’s just say an AMAZING new addition. If you are looking for a beautiful venue that gives you that outdoor feel and is covered, this is the spot!
