Kirin and Kirsten – Monte Creek Ranch Winery Wedding
Although I have lived in BC for seven years now and worked at many Kamloops wedding venues, this was the first time I have photographed a wedding at a vineyard! Monte Creek Ranch Winery certainly provided a stunning backdrop for this special day, filled with love, laughter, family, and friends. In addition to a beautiful couple and bridal party, I also had Kirin’s restored Volkswagon Beetle to use as a prop. 😀 He’s had this car since he was a teenager and his goal was always to include it in his future wedding day. He just finished it this summer, although it ended up needing an engine replacement rather last minute, as in the last month! I’m so glad everything worked out, though naturally we had to do a silly photo of Kirsten pushing the car. 😉
Their winter engagement photos are also worth a second look!
Kirin and Kirsten opted to do a reveal, where they see each other before the ceremony, and do most of their portraits beforehand too. The reveal was in Kirsten’s parent’s lovely backyard garden in Barnhartvale.
I had to stand on a ladder to get this shot of all the ceremony attendees! I am glad Kirsten and I went to the venue a couple weeks beforehand so we could plan some photo locations. The balcony above the ceremony was a great start for this photo, but I had to get higher than the glass patio walls, thus the ladder. 😉
