Kerra & Mark’s Wedding in the Shuswap at Quaaout Lodge

The name ‘August Long Weekend’ conjures up all kinds of images for people living in Western Canada, but for me my thoughts turn immediately to BC, swimming in a warm lake or fishing on a tiny creek in the mountains. After getting to spend this most recent August Long with Kerra and Mark at their wedding, a whole new set of images will be tagged to the middle of the summer. Driving out to the Shuswap is a special treat, and with extended family to visit in Sicamous I knew I would have a fun week away from the city. I had never shot at Quaaout Lodge, but was absolutely impressed with everything I saw while I was there and could hardly think of a more scenic area to host a lakeside wedding in the Shuswap. I met up with the girls a couple hours before the ceremony and revel in the wonderful energy of such close friends and family. The same was true for the boys, and you could tell Mark was excited to put a ring on Kerra’s finger. Their ceremony, overlooking the lake was a hot one – and the thought of jumping into the lake fully clothed definitely crossed my mind. Following the ceremony, I headed off with Kerra and Mark to a place I had seen years before and scouted the day before their wedding – turned out to be even better than expected and they loved it. Turn of the century brick, rusty train cars, old wooden sheds, and llamas? Yes please. Back to the lodge and a quick shoot with the rest of the bridal party before games on the lawn, cocktails and appies, and then into the reception where the party wasn’t showing any signs of slowing down when I ducked out just after midnight. An incredible day for two wonderful and fun people – was a treat to be there to capture their wedding!!_D3X2631 DSC_5926 DSC_5656 DSC_5856 DSC_5789 _D3X2668 DSC_5674 DSC_5957 DSC_6012 DSC_6131 DSC_6172 DSC_6332 _D3X2922 DSC_6420 DSC_7419 _D3X2962 _D3X2985 _D3X3014 _D3X3034 _D3X3046 _D3X3070 _D3X3132 _D3X3141 _D3X3147 DSC_6659 DSC_6605 DSC_6620 DSC_6793 DSC_6834 DSC_6984 DSC_7082 DSC_7169 DSC_7211 DSC_7233 DSC_7434 DSC_7623 _D3X3308 DSC_7513 DSC_7452
