Niki + Brett MARRIED - Spirit Ridge
Niki + Brett married at Spirit Ridge Resort here in Osoyoos early in May. A perfect venue of a couple of wine lovers! Our day started off with the gorgeous bride Niki as she put on the final touches with her friends and family gathered around. The boys met us up at the roof top patio for the ceremony. We all held our breath as the clouds turned dark navy blue over the mountains to the west. Niki was radiant as she gracefully took to the isle arm in arm with her Dad. The officiant had a great message about serving each other in marriage. He used a clean white towel to represent the newly weds "serving" each other as they start their new life together. A few moments later he displayed a tattered and torn up "serving" towel that represents a couple 50 years down the road, everyone laughed! The take home message was to be self-less in your marriage, serving each other in love, awwe. A great reminder for everyone! As Brett leaned in to kiss his bride the first rain drops started to fall and the couple skeedaddled down the isle all smiles! As we took shelter inside to wait off the rain it poured so hard we wondered if it would ever stop? Its so rare to see showers like that here in Osoyoos. It means good luck and great fortune if it rains on your wedding day right? N + B think so!
We snapped a few indoor photos as the wedding party shared champagne and just as they finished the rain eased off and we finished up their portraits outside! Hurray!
The evening reception was held in the swanky Passa Tempo restaurant at Spirit Ridge. A cozy atmosphere on a rainy night suited everyone just fine! Niki had the tables decorated beautifully, and as we snapped photos of the details we caught a guests iphone streaming the live Canucks play off game. I don't think that was part of the decor, unless maybe Brett had something to do with it??
Thank you both for inviting us to share in your celebration!! We hope you enjoy your photos!
