They have known each other since they were little, both taking the same school bus to Glenmore Elementary. It wasn’t until years later (after graduating high school) when they ran into one another did they see each other in a different light. After Curtis proposed on a trip to Harrison Hot Springs they decided it would be a romantic place to get married, so that’s exactly what they did! Two days, and two dresses later they celebrated in Kelowna on the breathtaking lakefront property where Curtis grew up.

Carmen thought every little detail through with the help of Terri Rosenau a wedding event planner originally from Vancouver and now relocated to Kelowna. From their personalized monogram to the beautiful lime green lanterns purchased by Carmen while traveling in Vietnam, everywhere you turned there was something new, special and exciting!

The thick dense trees created an absolutely stunning backdrop


Love the excitement after the ceremony of Curtis’s parents

Back in Kelowna, Carmen and her bridesmaids got ready for the second reception in a beautiful suite at the Eldorado Hotel, one of our favourite places for getting ready shots

Stunning bouquet

Carmen and her sisters

Curtis and his brothers

We had some time to do some gorgeous bridal shots of Carmen, isn’t she absolutely beautiful

And the handsome Curtis

Curtis was all fun and games and not too interested in the picture process, but we promised Carmen and his mom that we’d get some good ones. I think they turned out great.

All the details of the cocktail hour

Entering the reception/dinner area and seeing it all decorated for the first time

Avalon Event Rentals did an amazing job putting up this clear roof tent. It covered the tennis court creating a cozy and sophisticated dinner area. Again look at all those details!

As the sun set everything in the tent illuminated creating a romantic place for a tasty meal catered by the Eldorado Hotel

Thanks guys for having us be a part of your beautiful wedding days!
