When Ashley and Kevin asked me to document their Watermark Resort wedding in Osoyoos BC I was thrilled! It’s wine country out there, all rolling hills full of vineyards and orchards. It’s enchanting, really, and a perfect destination for a wedding. The preparations, ceremony and reception were all held at the Watermark Beach Resort, but we headed out to a couple lovely wineyards, Road 13 and Tinhorn Creek, for their bridal portraits.
The photos tell the story of their wedding day, and below, in their own words, is some of the rest of their story. Enjoy the glimpse into this fairytale wedding day!
Describe in just a couple sentences how you met: We met in high school in grade 8, dance class!
What were your first impressions of each other?
Kevin: I thought she was beautiful from the first moment I saw her. I was extremely nervous when it was my time to dance with her and my palms were probably all sweaty.
How did Kevin propose: On a vacation trip to Mexico. After some margaritas and bingo Kevin took Ashley down to the beach at sunset and proposed to her on one knee.
Why did you pick your wedding venue/city/location? We have family that lives in Grand Forks and we would always pass through it, then we started to stay there on our travels and just fell in love with the town, people, BEACH!
Favorite moment(s) of your wedding day…
Kevin: Seeing her for the first time at the ceremony, getting to kiss my bride for the first time.
