gabi + james married

As Gabi walked down the aisle with her mom and dad at her side, it was written on James' face how happy he truly was. As James read his vows to Gabi, the tears that welled up in her eyes told us the story of her love for him. It was a beautiful ceremony, followed by a kickin' reception on the shores of Okanagan Lake. With a canoe filled with beer, a 4 piece band, beautiful details and the love of friends and family, I knew they were in for a great night. The wedding was held at Gabi's parents home in Kelowna. They incorporated local wines from the surrounding wineries, Cabana catering used local ingredients for a fresh, locally inspired meal, and Gabi's earrings were designed by a jeweller at the farmer's market. I admire their passion for the environment, their love for mother nature and the way they put those details into their day was very special. And to top it off, Gabi snuck James' tie before their wedding day and hand-stitched her own label of love on the back. Congratulations you two, and we thank you for having us along on your day.

Loved the Toms shoes that Gabi wore throughout the day. Comfy and cute!  We made our way to St. Hubertus winery for a little wine tasting and a final few photos of J+G.Probably one of my faves from the day, simply because it was so funny. The dress was not cooperating, but Gabi is such a trooper, she made it happen!Beautiful details of fresh flowers and lavendar with wood and stone accents.To see more, watch the slideshow below.
