O'Keefe Ranch Wedding: Joanne & Rob

The historic O'keefe Ranch in Vernon is one of my favourite venues....and then you add a couple like Rob & Joanne and my day is perfect.  From the emotional ceremony (Joanne's daughter melted everyone's hearts) to all the amazing details (I LOVED the bride's brooch bouquet and the flower girls button flower basket) it was an incredible day.  Thanks Joanne and Rob for making me feel a part of the family and entrusting me to capture your day!  XOXO

Vernon Engagement Photography: Jeff & Amanda

I loved working with Jeff & Amanda.

I loved the story of how they met:
Girl sees boy building a house across the street from where she lives.  Girl thinks boy is very cute.  Girl bakes the boy cookies as a way of introducing herself and you can guess the rest of the story.

 I loved how much we all laughed during the session.

I love that they are planning a "Father of the Bride" type Wedding

and I love that I get to go to Abbotsford to be a part of it all in July.

Love, love, love, love, love :)

Kelowna Wedding Album: Chantel & Josh

Chantel and Josh's Wedding at Cedar Creek Estate Winery and Manteo Resort was a dream wedding for us. With the ceremony being earlier in the day, we had so much time to do photos that our wonderful bride and groom treated us to lunch on the beautiful patio at Cedar Creek! Then to top off the night, the reception at Manteo, which was catered to by the hotels' Wild Apple Restaurant, was probably the best meal I've had at a reception. Well done chef!

Congratulations Josh and Chantel. You are a beautiful couple through and through!

Ashley and Matt are the cutest couple and paired with a gorgeous fall day....it was an incredible day, start to finish. Thanks for entrusting Wedded Bliss Photography with your perfect day!

Sweet little Jorja....slept like an angel for her session!  Watch for a session coming soon where I got to photograph her again in amongst the apple blossoms and I got to meet her two older sisters too :)

Kelowna Engagement Session: Travis & Erin

Erin & Travis's Kelowna Engagement Session and Wedding may be getting the long distance award this year.  Working currently in England, Erin first flew home to Alberta before coming to the Okanagan for their engagement session.  Wanting a destination wedding located between where all their families live (Maple Ridge & Calgary), Kelowna was a natural choice.  We are super excited to be photographing their Wedding at The Harvest Golf Club in September.

Kelowna Engagement Session: Jen & Kyle

Jen, originally from Kelowna, met Kyle while in Victoria, and they've been there since.  Coming home was a natural choice for their Wedding and we're looking forward to photographing them at the lovely venue they picked out- Gellatly Nut Farm in West Kelowna.  

We're also super excited for the family connection at the Wedding....we photographed Jen's brothers Wedding back in 2010.  It will be fabulous to see Erin & Justin again!

As a personal note to this story-Jen was very apprehensive about the Engagement Session.  She felt she didn't photograph well and had never had her photo taken professionally.  Not only do I love Engagement Session so that I begin connecting with my clients before their Wedding day and get them to know them better (and they get to know Wedded Bliss Photography) but I then get comments like this after they see their images for the first time:

"Well Renee, I think you shocked me into silence. We look fantastic..  I
couldn't be happier.  I can't wait for the disc so that I can use some of
the images on the website and facebook :)!

Thanks so much.  You have completely changed my outlook on getting pictures


I love my job :)

Kelowna Wedding Album: Josh & Zoe

I have known the Bryson family for a long time, so when they asked if I could be involved in their daughter Zoes' Wedding to Josh, I was extremely honoured. Having moved to Calgary over 10 years ago, coming back to Vernon, was a big reunion with friends as well so there were plenty of hugs and smiles. The ceremony and reception was at the beautiful Friesens Countrytyme Gardens and my only wish for the day (that wasn't granted) was that I could have gotten my hands on the wedding cake...it was made of my favorite cinnamon buns! Congrats. Josh and Zoe!

Kelowna Wedding Album: Jeremy & Dena

Jeremy & Dena's dream Wedding was at the gorgeous Manteo Lake Resort in Kelowna. Originally from Kelowna, Dena met Jeremy in the States while attending University and it took the joyous event to bring everyone together. With one of the biggest wedding parties we've worked with, we loved all the fun, joy and laughter this group brought to the day. Congratulations Dena & Jeremy!
