As a Vernon Wedding Photographer, I am always looking for dreamy locations for both sessions and for my clients when they are choosing a Wedding venue. When I first saw Silver Sage Stables, my jaw dropped and I said “Yes Please! We need more venues like this in the Okanagan!” I thought an informative blog post, which could help my clients find their perfect Wedding venue, would be super helpful and could introduce you to this beautiful location.
Silver Sage Stables is a 50 acre private property located just East of Vernon BC in the stunning
Coldstream Valley. There are picturesque panoramic backdrops of the valley mountains and glowing
sunsets to the West. They feature a 2700 square foot wood lined barn with exposed wooden rafters and a
large dance floor. Edison bulb lighting, crystal chandeliers, and white curtains draped at entrances create
a romantic ambiance. Adjacent to the barn is a covered structure perfect for a refreshment area. The
venue also features a separate building which hosts a large well equipped kitchen space. Their goal is to
promote a relaxed atmosphere to create the feeling of being in your own backyard.
To get to know Kalie Knopp, owner of Silver Sage Stables, better I asked her a few questions.
•Who inspires you?
We are inspired by the talented wedding vendors in the Okanagan. We have been welcomed warmly into the community and have received nothing but love and support. Of course we are also inspired by our couples. Every time I walk a new couple through the venue they come up with new ways to use the space that I have not thought of yet.
•How did you get started in hosting Weddings at your farm?
My husband and I had our own wedding Summer 2014. After our vendors started to post photos of the day on social media they received a flood of interest from newly engaged couples. We were approached by more than one of our vendors to open up the space for rental to the public.
•Where can people find your business on Facebook?
Stay tuned for our new website, which will be completed the summer.
•What is your mission?
Our mission is to create a sense of “home” for our couples. We only host one wedding a weekend therefore we can dedicate more time to each event. Silver Sage Stables is a family run venue. We have a sense of pride in creating a unique experience for our couples.
•What 3 qualities do you feel that your business exemplifies?
We try to decrease the amount of stress that comes with putting on a large event. We accomplish this by stretching your event over the entire weekend. This means that you can come on Friday for your rehearsal, start decorating the space and even host your rehearsal dinner, on Saturday we welcome our couples and their bridal party into our home. You can invite your make up artists and hairstylist and get ready all together on site. There is no need to worry about having to take down decor, tables
and chairs late Saturday evening. Our guests can come back on Sunday to do any take down and clean up.
Thanks so much Kalie for sharing your beautiful venue! I can not wait to work with you!

Thanks for featuring my images from Kalie & Adam’s amazing wedding. Silver Sage Stables is truly a gorgeous venue. The golden wheat field they created for the ceremony is one of my all-time favourite ceremony locations ever!!!
[…] Silver Sage is owned by Patti and her daughter Kalie. Patti is one of the amazing nurses that Kim works with at Vernon Jubilee Hospital and so when Kim mentioned that Patti suggested it as a possible location, I was thrilled. […]
