Okanagan Orchard Wedding: Kyle & Danielle

My cousin Kyle married his beautiful bride, Danielle, in Summerland earlier this month. Family came together and made wedding dreams come true…

To start things off, our cousin Megs and her husband Trevor bought a fruit stand and bakery in Summerland last year, and offered up their property for the festivities. Surrounded by an apple orchard and rows of cherry trees, under a (thankfully) sunny Okanagan sky, the wedding took place. Garden lights were strung up between posts made by Danielle’s dad, tables were set with gold and white linens, topped with gold and white painted wine bottles holding over 600 white roses and hydrangeas. Furniture was arranged, many pieces having traveled from the homes of family in the Fraser Valley or refinished by the mother of the groom, my aunt. She also made the bouquets, boutonnieres and gold painted chalkboard signs. Candles were everywhere, including hanging from the trees, and a fire pit was set up to keep cozy around when the evening turned chilly. Our photobooth was also on hand to help keep the party going into the night.

I could keep going! It all came together to make for one beautiful wedding…but of course, what made the wedding a wedding, were the bride and groom themselves, their love that was celebrated, and the love and support of family and friends who witnessed Kyle and Danielle’s I do’s.


The wedding party got ready at Summerland Waterfront Resort, and I got to hang out with Danielle and her girls…

What was really fun about this wedding, was having so much family in the wedding party! That’s my brother Logan in the background, in the middle, and my cousin Kaleb to the right, whose wedding I photographed last year. His lovely wife Sherry was a bridesmaid!


There was no shortage of happy tears throughout the day, including during Kyle and Danielle’s first look…


The arbor under which Kyle and Danielle were married was also built by her Dad
