Wedding Photography in Vernon takes me to some pretty spectacular locations for Weddings. This summer however, Kate and I were thrilled when we were able to photography Stephanie and Justen‘s incredible Wedding at Sparkling Hill Resort and Lone Pine Ranch. It has become one of our favourite venues in the Okanagan. We also couldn’t say enough kind words about Lone Pine Ranch’s Facility Director, Dee Cristante. She is absolutely incredible to work with!
When Dee emailed me and asked if I could come up to Lone Pine Ranch to capture some of it’s Christmas charm, I was honoured she would choose me, out of all the Wedding photographers she works with, to capture it’s warm and inviting atmosphere. It would be an incredible location for a Winter Wedding or Office Christmas party.
I also wanted my brides and grooms to know a little bit more about Dee and what makes Lone Pine such a spectacular venue to get married. Check out some of her great answers to my questions at the bottom of the page!
•Who inspires you?
•How did you get started in hosting Weddings at your ranch?
35 years in the hospitality industry coupled with the project of transforming my own heritage barn in Langley into a wedding destination sensation, prepared me for the mighty challenge in making this dream a reality. The plan was already in the making before Lone Pine came along. I was just weeks away from presenting my wedding business plan to a secondary location in the Predator Ridge area. Due to a mysterious divine intervention, I just happened to stumble upon the ranch owner from Lone Pine who shared in my vision to re-create “western” style events in the region. It wasn’t long after that chance encounter that negotiations were finalized and renovations were underway. On May 8, 2016 Lone Pine Ranch Event Centre officially opened it’s gates to the public for the first “Shot Gun” wedding. The beautifully transformed show barn is now making wedding and event history…………..
