Aaron & Kyla | Hotel Eldorado Wedding
We don’t even know where to start with this incredible couple and their absolutely perfect wedding day. We knew that this day would be extra special when we spent time with Aaron and Kyla during their Knox Mountain Park Engagement Session. This couple is so in-tune with each other and so eager to become husband and wife and plan the wedding of their dreams. We are thinking, it all paid off…not only are they very much, husband and wife, but their wedding day was absolutely stunning in so many ways.
Their wedding day began with their closest friends and family. Both the bride and groom’s “getting ready” locations were very picturesque. We photographed all the lovely details, as they were all so thoughtful. We even had Kyla get her dress on in the master bathroom…when a bathroom is as spotless and exquisite as this one was, you take advantage….and OH MY GOODNESS….the DRREESSS!!! AMAZING! Aaron & Kyla both had a gift for each other, which is always so sweet to photograph; Kyla however, had one more surprise up her sleeve. She rented a classic car for Aaron for per-ceremony photos with his guys. He was pleasantly surprised, to say the least :)
While Kyla and Aaron decided against the “first look” for their day, they did have a moment together in the car for a moment of prayer. Aaron was blindfolded while Kyla stepped into the car beside him, and was under strict instruction to keep his eyes closed during their prayer. What a unique, sweet moment between the two of them. We did have two “first looks” though! One with Kyla and her Father, as well as Kyla and her Grandmother. Both were priceless, but Grandma’s reaction was the absolute BEST!
The couple’s ceremony began, atop the rooftop of the Hotel Eldorado. Such a beautiful day and a heartfelt, charming ceremony, officiated by Kyla’s own cousin. Aaron’s reaction to seeing his stunning bride walk down the aisle towards him was truly the sweetest.
We headed to Rotary Trails Park in West Kelowna for wedding party photos. They were such a fun group to work with! Aaron and Kyla are so incredibly photogenic, which is so clear in these images. We headed to our final destination, Two Eagles Golf Course where the reception was being held at the gorgeous Dine 19 Okanagan Bar & Grill. Such a great venue…great view, food and people. We whisked Aaron & Kyla off for some golden hour photos, which is always so worth it. Not only does the couple get a little breather from the hustle and bustle of their reception with a few moments “alone”, but they get some great light for their photos.
We could not be more excited to have been chosen to capture this amazing day for this AMAZING couple. We can’t wait to see what the world has in store for the two of you and know it will be so GREAT. You are two of the kindest, sweet and caring people we have had the pleasure to meet and are so happy to know you and even more ecstatic to have documented your precious LOVE.
