I met Brittany and David in a coffee shop here in Penticton to chat about their wedding day. As I listened to their story and plans for their wedding, I became very excited. I had heard of God's Mountain before but had never been there, so when I googled it to see where this couple was having their wedding, I laughed out loud with joy. This venue is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been to. From, the style of architecture, to the breathtaking view, beauitful rooms and decor, this place is Heaven on Earth. There was such a variety of places to take photos. Vineyards, open air suites and lake view vistas all made lovely backdrops for this couple. The ceremony was held overlooking Skaha Lake and under the shade of large trees. Afterwards, the reception was held under the same trees which were a glow with lights. It was the first time I had shot an open air reception and I loved it. Even though we felt a few stray rain drops, the setting could not have been more perfect.
I wish to thank all the people who made this fairytale wedding come true.
Venue: God's Mountain - Sarah and all the staff at this venue were amazing! The way they hustled behind the scenes to make this day perfect was so well organized. When little problems happened, (as they always do on the wedding day) this crew was on it right away and took care of everything.
Caterer: Brodo - I am always super excited when Brodo is at any event. Their food is always delicious and again, their staff are professional and efficient.
Flowers: Lisa's Fresh Cut Flowers - The floral arrangements were stunning. Brittany was able to hand pick the flowers she wanted for her bouquet a day or two before the wedding which makes it all the more special.
Officient: Marlene Trenholm Pye - Always a delight to work with, Marlene is one of the best.
Cake: Sweet Charlie's Bakeshop - This cake was simply elegant, beautiful and delicious!
Makeup: Dana England Makeup Artistry - Dana is truly an artist and did such an amazing job with the bride and bridesmaids' make up. Fresh and natural look which translates on camera very well.
