Good afternoon everyone, and welcome along to another Ask The Experts post. Today I am thrilled to...
We have the most gorgeous Boho wedding for you today from Canada’s beautiful British Columbia, courtesy of FunkyTown Photography. Charmaine and Riley were married on the 2nd July 2016 at Hotel Eldorado, and they filled their day with rustic, Bohemian touches and kept the boho theme running throughout the day. My favourite touches are the bridesmaids dresses, Charmaine’s stunning dress and headpiece and the amazing outdoor ceremony with white parasols, so pretty. A fabulous Boho themed day, that I know you are going to love.
This wedding took place in gorgeous Kelowna, BC – home of wineries, expansive orchards and beautiful Lake Okanagan. We were super excited for everything Charmaine & Riley had planned for the day – including wedding portraits at the Okanagan Lavender & Herb farm and the celebration at the lakeside El Dorado Hotel.
Charmaine has impeccable taste so I knew the wedding was going to be absolutely gorgeous. We started the day off at the Cove Resort in West Kelowna. I love a group of criers and this crowd didn’t disappoint! The tears started every time someone would look at Charmaine! Then Charmaine started when her family called her from South Africa… and the happy, verklemting tears never stopped throughout the day. We went next door to a beautiful shady tree for their adorable reveal.
After portraits, the gang hung out at the El Dorado bar while guests found their seats on the rooftop. It was such a pretty site, with all the guests having white parasols to shade themselves. And, to make things even more perfect, a pair of butterflies flew overhead just before the couple walked down the isle. Since we already spent time for a portrait session, Riley and Charmaine were able to hang out with their guests and enjoy the cocktail hour. Guests were then brought to the reception room where everyone gasped at the gorgeous Boho-themed decor (which were put together both by the bride and Yuriko Larson of Vintage Origami in Kelowna).
When the speeches were over the band Young’uns took the stage and wow!!! They played everything from old classics to disco to pop and metal, and everything in between. If you closed your eyes you would have thought you were hearing the original songs! They had everyone partying on the dance floor ALL. NIGHT. LONG. It was incredible!
Charmaine & Riley, it was a huge honour to have been a part of your beautiful wedding day. Congratulations once again!
