Being Kelowna Wedding Photographers for over 15 years, I had yet to have a wedding celebration weekend as unique as Riaan and Tessa’s. Split into two days, and with a day in between to rest and recharge, their wedding has me thinking EVERY couple should celebrate the way they did!
Having their beautiful celebration at Tessa’s parents home on Okanagan Lake (and renting the house next door) allowed them to plan their weekend exactly how they wanted to.
Friday night was their beautiful ceremony with a small number of close family and friends on her parents dock, followed by an intimate dinner.
Saturday was a much more relaxed day filled with enjoying beautiful Okanagan Lake and visiting.
And Sunday saw them and their wedding party getting all dressed up again for the majority of their portraits and then a bigger reception and dance.
This was a global affair. Riaan’s family flew in from South Africa and other family and friends came from the States and the U.K. and it was so incredibly meaningful that the location has been in Tessa’s family for decades.
There was just so much emotion and joy as Tessa’s lifelong friends and sister stood by her side and Riaan had his dad as his best man.
Riaan and Tessa, there is a world of adventure waiting for you as husband and wife. And I wish you a world of happiness.
Thank for entrusting me to capture all the love and emotion of your perfect weekend!
