Open air romance shines bright at the nuptials of Carol and Jimmy
"I wanted an al fresco reception for my wedding, with my closest family and friends, wining and dining into late night. Nadia (who is also my wedding photographer) suggested I look into God's Mountain Estate as a venue in Kelowna. It was perfect for me because half of my guests were from out of town and this venue has several rooms to accommodate. My husband and I are both wine lovers so we were thrilled to make Kelowna our wedding destination. I started researching inspiration decor photos and sent them to Heather (my florist). I prefer foliage over flowers and Heather made that happen for me. She laid foliage across the long table with tea light candles. It was effortless, simple and stayed within my budget."
"We hired Joy Road to cater our reception, opting for family style. The food was amazing. We didn't get to do a tasting beforehand but the caterer was praised by the host at God's Mountain. Oh, boy, they did not disappoint! I would highly recommend them to anyone who is getting married in Kelowna."
"I am really lucky that I was in the wedding industry prior to getting married and have made some wonderful friends/vendors along the way. They contributed tremendously to my wedding preparation. Even though it rained after the ceremony, there was a backup dining room so we moved everything in there. All the guests helped out the move and were so grateful for them. We spent two nights at the venue, reconnecting with old friends, and we truly had a blast on the wedding day."
