This is Catalina + Sam’s beautiful and breathtaking classic Kelowna wedding. Each couple that travels to the Okanagan for their destination wedding has a unique and wonderful story. I’ll spare all the details but Cat + Sam are from Vancouver and London respectively, met in Croatia and got married in Kelowna. It’s a beautiful story and if you ever see them on the street, ask them. It’s wonderful.
The day began with Catalina and her ladies getting ready at the spectacular Bo.ttega Farm Inn. Bo.ttega offers their library for the Bride and the room is spacious and beautiful with modern touches and a wall of books. Catalina had letters and gifts for each bridesmaid and you can see the connection between them all. Her Mother helped with the gorgeous Truvelle Wedding Dress while a beautiful bit of light streamed in through the large windows.
The ceremony in the forest of East Kelowna was touching with lovely moments of glances, smiles, and sparkling eyes for each other. With meaningful readings from friends, beautiful vows, rings, and a kiss (followed by a quick little wipe of lipstick from Sam’s lips!), it was time for celebration!
We enjoyed tromping around the grounds and among the trees with the bridal party and then saying hello to the Alpacas with our couple. Wedding Photography at Bo.ttega is always a treat as Rhys and I utilized the modern aesthetics of what the architecture has to offer.
The reception was all-together lovely with vintage mixed with modern touches throughout. During speeches we enjoyed the delightful service of Details Catering. Details is run by Waterfront Wines. If you’re in Kelowna looking for the best dinner experience downtown, go to Waterfront. It does not disappoint. We snuck out for a few individual portraits of our couple and we couldn’t forget to showcase the beautiful floral designs of Lavender & Lace.
Soon it was time for dances followed by cake cutting and bouquet toss followed by more dancing as DJ Alex Bird kept the party hopping and beats pumping!
Thank you Catalina + Sam allowing us to enjoy your beautiful wedding with you!
