A Stunning Winery Wedding in Kelowna
Chitra and Taylor got married way back in 2015, but I always come back to how gorgeous their wedding day was. From the incredible style of Yuriko Larson of Vintage Origami to the perfect Okanagan weather, every aspect of their wedding was heaven.
Taylor started his day getting ready with his groomsmen at the Ramada Lodge in central Kelowna, where he donned his floral socks, light brown brogues, muted purple and tan ties, and wooden framed sunglasses. They spent some time joking around, and playing on Taylor's guitar (he is a talented musician - check out his songs on Spotify).
After I finished capturing the boys getting ready, I headed over to the Hotel Eldorado for Chitra's preparations! I loved how the girls all had matching robes while they got their hair and makeup done, and we had lots of fun while getting all the final touches together for them. Chitra's mom was there to help her get dressed, and as she helped her put on her jewelry they were both crying tears of joy.
It was then time to head to Summerhill Winery for their ceremony, where the decorations were beyond compare. Yuriko did a mind blowing job as usual, melding aspects of the couple's personality and keeping it romantic, elegant and breathtaking. It was a bit windy during the ceremony, but it was a nice way to cool down on a hot summer's day! There wasn't many dry eyes throughout, and I think Taylor and Chitra may have one of the most supportive and lovely families I've ever met!
After the ceremony, we headed up to Bertram Creek Park to do pictures with the wedding party. The sun and the wind remained and we had an absolute blast while capturing some gorgeous memories.
We returned to Summerhill for the reception, where Taylor surprised Chitra with a song he wrote for her. It was such a beautiful and heartfelt moment and it was such a unique experience. I was lucky to be able to capture their entire day, from the getting ready, through dinner, dancing, and a nighttime portrait and I hope all my clients get the chance to have such a memorable wedding day!
