I’ve been looking forward to blogging this wedding since that beautiful August day Jaline and Rahan made it official! Not only was this wedding a dream to photograph, but it holds a special place in my heart…I’ve finally (finally!!) accomplished my first destination wedding!! I can’t put into words how stunning this place is…a perfect juxtaposition of dry desert landscapes and lavish grape vineyards – it was truly gorgeous and I am one lucky gal to claim this place for my first destination wedding! Jaline and Rahan…thank you for all your kindness, generosity, and patience in me. Coming back to Osoyoos was such a treat and I am honoured to have been a part of your special day!
The wedding day was exactly as predicted – sunny, clear skies, and ridiculously HOT. In fact, hot isn’t even an appropriate word to describe it…32 degrees of dry intense desert heat was just INTENSE! Despite the beating sun, the rooftop ceremony was set overlooking the Nk-Mip vineyards and the Okanagan lake. A beautiful site it was! After the ceremony, we walked around the grounds of the Spirit Ridge Resort and spent the rest of the day having fun and making beautiful images. I am not one to post a ton of images in one post – but narrowing down the images was just too hard! So I suggest you all get comfy, grab a glass of wine perhaps, and enjoy the extra long post!
