Melissa & Dayton - Kelowna Wedding

It was a beautiful summer day for an outdoor wedding at Summerhill Pyramid Winery in Kelowna. The wedding party consisted of Melissa’s two daughters and Dayton’s two daughters so this ceremony not only united Melissa & Dayton but was also the union of two families into one.

The bride recently got a tattoo of a butterfly on her foot in memory of her brother. She wanted him to be a part of her day so there were little touches added throughout: butterfly headbands for the bridesmaids, butterfly name plates, and her shoes showed it off the tattoo beautifully.

After the ceremony we photographed the wedding party around the winery before heading inside to a luncheon Reception. The food was catered by Summerhill and was a really great all organic meal, especially the merlot infused caesar salad!

We headed out with just the bride and groom to do the couple portraits to a great location we had scouted out a few weeks before that gave an awesome view of the valley. Then we headed down to Waterfront Park for some more along the boardwalk.

After all the formal portraits were done we went straight into a trash the dress session. It deserves it’s very own blog post so stay tuned!
