Hotel 540 is one of the few venues in Kamloops that I haven’t photographed a wedding at yet, so I was thrilled when I found out that Hye Weon and Kurt had booked it for their day! Such a beautiful place for a wedding, and they are so wonderful to work with! Anything that was needed for the wedding… they made it work… even setting up a conference room as a preparation space for the ladies… so great!
Hye Weon was just so elegant…from her gorgeous lace gown to her sparkling shoes and her stunning white rose and lily bouquet! Just stunning!! And check out her super photogenic new husband… Kurt looked pretty snappy himself!!
If I was to have only three words to describe this wedding, they would be this: elegant, emotional, and fun. Everything about the wedding looked gorgeous… the ladies’ black dresses, the tuxes, the florals, the decor… everything. Anthony Salituro decorated the wedding spaces, and he did a magnificent job! Hye Weon wanted understated elegance, and he totally delivered on that! Every time I turned around someone was happy crying! Seriously!! I love it when there’s so much happy some of it escapes, it’s so beautiful! And fun…. because the wedding party was there to have fun, and the couple wanted to enjoy the day and celebrate! Such a hilarious group!
We took a limo out to Sun Rivers for most of the bridal party photos… it was a warm September day (a bit too warm for tuxes, perhaps!) but the sun was spectacular 🙂 Afterwards the couple and I found a lovely downtown courtyard and took a few minutes for portraits in there before one last limo ride back to Hotel 540 for their reception.
Both the ceremony and the dance were held out on the Mountain View Terrace, and the transformation from elegant ceremony to party scene was pretty amazing! That fresh evening air was perfect for dancing!!
Here are just a few moments from Hye Weon and Kurt’s beautiful day:
