Karli + Ruben…. what can be said? These two are such sweet and genuine souls, and we adore them. This is the story of their beautiful Cedar Creek Estate Winery wedding.
The day began early with all of the girls at the home Karli grew up in. From makeup with one of Kelowna’s finest makeup artists, Bri Stein Makeup Artistry, to bridesmaids gifts being opened and touching letters being read that Karli had written to each of the girls, we knew that this was going to be an amazingly fun day with high emotions.
The Cedar Creek Estate Winery wedding was a very misty eyed celebration of the union of Karli + Ruben, filled with many of their family and friends who had come from all over Canada. Be sure to look for Christina of Classic Creation’s amazing bouquets. Pastor Dale Baldwin of Calvary Chapel Kelowna, the couple’s home church, lead an amazing, heart felt, and sacred ceremony complete with the parents praying a blessing over the couple, leading them in Communion, and having the two pray together privately as husband and wife.
We had an amazing time hanging out with Karli and Ruben’s friends and family for the afternoon during wedding portraits in the vineyard at Cedar Creek Estate Winery, as well as a beautiful pear orchard with almost ripe pears hanging from the trees. We love being able to go off location, when time permits, and allowing the couple a nice time of cuddly romance after the ceremony.
The reception was held at The Laurel Packing House, beautifully and tastefully decorated by the bride and her family with touches of rustic charm, and was catered by Ora Kitchen and Bar. The speeches were just as misty eyed as the ceremony and we were so happy to see that Karli + Ruben have such a wonderful family and community to surround themselves with as they start their journey together as husband and wife.
John Byrne Professional Music Services did an amazing job as the DJ the entire day. We were pleased to work with him for the first time.
We feel so blessed to have been a part of this sacred wedding. The day was filled with wonderful memories, and we are so thankful we have gotten to know Karli + Ruben.
Congratulations you guys!
