“Our wedding day was the most perfect day, full of so much light, love and laughter – and marrying my best friend,” says Lindsay Johnson of tying the knot with Grant Boulton.
The two chose to marry in Osoyoos last summer because of their shared love of sunshine, hot temperatures, lakes and wine – all of which the Okanagan town offers in abundance. Their rustic-style ceremony took place on the rooftop patio of Spirit Ridge, overlooking the vineyards and lake. Lindsay’s sister, Jenn, walked her down the aisle, as their father had passed away the year before. “Grant was in tears, while bearing the giant smile that I adore,” says Lindsay. “It was beautiful, emotional and absolutely perfect. I still feel overwhelmed with gratitude to have married my best friend and soul mate.”
Their reception took place on the restaurant patio overlooking the vineyards, city and lake. “We even lucked out and experienced one of the most stunning sunsets we had ever seen,” says Lindsay. “We like to think that that was my dad showing us he was there.”
After dinner, Grant and Lindsay surprised their guests with a fun choreographed dance (including a piece from “Thriller”) that set the tone for the rest of the night. The couple danced the night away among their closest friends and family under the stars, and took many photos in our photo booth. The night ended with everyone singing along to “Time of My Life.”
“This day will continue to bring us joy, smiles and a lot of laughter for all of our years to come,” says Lindsay. “We still get goose-bumps just talking about it!
“And finally,” she adds, “we continue to be humbled by all of the family, friends and vendors that assisted in making this the most memorable day of our entire lives. Erika, our dear friend, volunteered to be our day-of-coordinator (while pregnant!) and we are beyond grateful.”
The couple also credit their many vendors for helping to pull together their perfect day, including photographer Karolina Turek, makeup and hair pro Brianna Errelat, baker Annina of Dolci Artisan Fare, florist Deb from polka Dot Door and DJ Erick from Atmosphere.
“We would especially like to thank Jennifer Ziajka at Spirit Ridge,” Lindsay adds. “She was especially helpful throughout the entire planning process, and worked hard to ensure every detail of our vision was taken into consideration and perfectly incorporated into our day.”
