This was a wedding day we were looking forward to for months!! With a little bit of hesitation though on how it might all work as well. As BC restricted then stopped wedding gatherings for a time. It was only just over a month prior to their day that the restriction was lifted and weddings could take place. So then it was full on excitement!! These two carried on with planning throughout and amazed me with how organized and prepared they were! It was like they just knew their perfect day at Hotel Eldorado in Kelowna would all work out!! They kept a small guest list and had a meaningful, heartwarming wedding with their closest family members.
We started off with the bride’s family in their home. Just as Saje was ready to get into her beautiful wedding dress. Early on when dating, Austin made a comment about how good Saje looked in a white dress. This day was even better!! Her sister created a custom gown that fit her to perfection! Coming from a family of four girls myself, it was extra sweet seeing their sister bond. With Saje the first one to get married, it was a new experience for their family. However, the groom’s family are seasoned pros as both of Austin’s brothers that stood up with him were married in the past year. Having nannied for the Pizzey family when they were just little kids, they have a special place in my heart. I’m thrilled as their family grows to see the wonderful partners they’ve chosen.
An adorable entrance made way for the GOOD part when the children rolled into the ceremony with the rings! I have some stories on Austin but this was his day shining like a prince in the spotlight. For a guy that I’m used to being a goof and always having quick comments, he was less so on his wedding day. In the best way. He was sincere and heartfelt marrying the woman of his dreams. Then made everyone laugh when their first kiss was heart-stopping!!! Good thing for his brothers having his back – literally! The day was happy and love-filled!!
Congratulations Austin + Saje! It was really special to witness and capture your commitment and love along the Okanagan Lake. On a lovely spring day that we will all fondly remember!!
This vintage car was a fun surprise for the happy couple to drive on their wedding day!
Time for the newlywed’s send off! Some guests sneakily decorated the car during the reception so they got a surprise in the parking lot!!
