Kelowna Budget Wedding:
Catherine + Eddie

Kelowna Budget Wedding: Catherine + Eddie

Today’s real wedding feature is Catherine and Eddie’s beautiful Okanagan vineyard wedding. It was held at the Summerhill Pyramid Winery in Kelowna on a gorgeous summer day in September 8, 2012. The couple’s budget came to just under $20,000 and it was money well spent. What made this day so special was the quality time spent with family, seeing each other down the aisle for the first time, and appreciating all those who traveled quite a distance to spend this important day with them. Martin Gregorian of Butterfly Photography (one of my Vancity Vendors) had the honour of capturing this wedding and here’s what he had to say…

“The wedding was set in a perfect location with perfect weather! I couldn’t ask for more as a professional photographer. Summerhill has such a great variety of backdrops for photos such as the vineyards, barns, to a wonderful view of the lake. I love that the couple is so easy going and truly in love. When a couple is truly in love and is not afraid to show their true emotions and personalities to one another they get the best pictures! My favorite part of the day by far was the photoshoot in the vineyards. They provide for such a picturesque backdrop!”
