You immediately know when a photographer is excited about a wedding it is bound to be something special. Jessika from December Photography was so thrilled when her friends Ash and Melissa asked her to photograph their wedding. This gorgeous Summer affair took place in Kelowna, British Columbia – a beautiful spot in the Okanagan lake area of Canada – where they all grew up together. Naturally, being a hometown girl, Jessika knew all the best spots to capture her beautiful friends and share their magical Summer wedding. With a casual elegant vibe and a dusky colour palette of white, purple and soft grey, the whole party looked amazing against the stunning lakeside landscape and aqua blue backdrops. Thank you Jessica for sharing Ash and Melissa’s beautiful day and for capturing it all so perfectly.
From the Bride: Ash and I had a really hard time picking our venue but it was worth all the effort in the end. We went to numerous spots to view their facility and check their prices but unfortunately just did not feel “wowed” until Manteo. We loved Manteo and both knew it would be a perfect place to exchange our vows. From the landscape to the amenities offered, it was fabulous. We both wanted a classy but not too hoity toity wedding. We had decorators and they did a wonderful job spicing up the room for our reception. Our chosen colours were purple, brown and yellow . . . probably more my chosen colours. We included a candy table, which was thoroughly enjoyed by all ages. Also my friend was kind enough to drive out my most favourite cupcakes from Calgary, Crave! We ordered specialized Jones soda for favours and are keeping some to remind us over the years of our day. We did do the centerpieces ourselves to cut cost as fresh flowers were quite pricey. We got supplies from a few stores in Calgary and just kept them really simple. Planning everything from afar was really our biggest challenge but amazingly the day was perfect and flawless. The best thing really was that all our family and friends were there to celebrate with us. It was the best day.
Thanks Melissa. It’s evident your hard work really paid off. Congratulations to you and Ash on a wonderful wedding.
