Jen and Terry: Kelowna Wedding 10.01.2011

FILED IN: Wedding

Jen and Terry are the most relaxed and laid back couple I have ever met! When I first met Jen for coffee to talk about her wedding I LOVED her instantly! We ended up talking for a few hours and I was so excited to be a part of their wedding day!

Jen and Terry both love the outdoors, quadding, camping, and country music! I LOVE how they incorporated those loves into their wedding decor. I described it to one of my friends as “classy outdoors”…it was perfect! Definitly one of my favourite weddings of the year details wise! If I could get married again (to Marco again of course) I would definitly decorate similar!

The morning of their wedding, it was pouring. Not the usual Okanagan rain, but made me feel right at home Vancouver rain! I was so so worried the morning of! I had never shot a rainy wedding before and was very nervous as to how their portraits would go!

When I arrived at the Belgo Wedding Chapel I breathed a huge sigh of relief! This venue is stunning, and absolutely PERFECT for rainy weddings! It is a covered chapel with open walls so it lets in natural light and gives that outdoors feel! It was the perfect venue for their wedding! We ended up shooting almost all of their portraits under there as it was just too rainy to go out in the open!

Their reception was held at the Ellison Hall, just behind the Kelowna airport. I had driven by it a few times and have always wanted to shoot a wedding there! It has just this great feel to it! My father in law actually went to elementary school there!

Even the rain couldn’t put a damper on this wedding. It was so fun. Both Jen and Terry had the best wedding party! I haven’t laughed that hard in a long time!! And the rain actually added this romantic feel to all their photos! I love how they turned out! :)




 One of the prettiest aisles I have ever seen!

















I LOVE this shot so much! Showing off her ring to all the ladies!






They made the bouquets themselves!




















 If you look closely you can tell how hard it was raining!




 My favourite by far!! I love how it turned out! Thanks Pinterest for the inspiration! :)






 Another favourite!


 The rain finally let up just enough that we were brave enough to venture out!







 And now for their amazing details! I am so in love with them!















And to see even more from their day check out their slideshow set to their wedding song! (It’s one of my favourites!)



Jen and Terry thank you so much for having me as a part of your wedding day! I had so much fun! I wish you all the best together and hope to see you guys soon! :)
