Real Wedding: Lindsay + Lucas, Oyama, BC

Lindsay and Lucas got married in the middle of the Okanagan hills, on a late summer day. The sky was dancing with clouds, and the views stretched endlessly across open acres; a subtle reminder that love knows no bounds. We were situated in the middle of an orchard, tucked away beside the loveliest lake. Generations of memories, families, and trailers all tucked into a corner of land that quietly facilitated years of fun. This was heaven, and we were welcomed by the loving arms of family and treated as one of their very own. As a travelling wedding planner, it really doesn’t get much better! We were settled, happy, and ready to get to work! 

Gatzke Orchard is a stunning plot of land, boasting fresh fruit and the most wonderful rustic wedding venue! I would describe the setting for you, but the photos speak a thousand words on their own :) Apple trees and a rustic barn, an open air dance floor and cascading vines that intertwined with sparkling chandeliers to set the tone for the most stunning reception. Fresh peaches (picked that day no doubt) added a pop of colour to each place setting, and we adorned the tables with wild flowers for pops of magical colour to match the warm summer breeze. TIP: our custom grey table runners are the perfect back drop for a fresh pop of colour!! The alter, which we constructed out of authentic apple crates and vintage details was everyone’s favourite touch!! It was simple and classic, bringing the natural farm environment to life - really paying homage to the land.

Lindsay and Lucas’ day was nothing short of elegant and perfectly put together! Every detail just sort of fit together seamlessly to complete the greater puzzle, and at the end of the day, our Blue Violet Events team sat back in marvel as we watched the celebration come to life! As much as the day was not our own, we truly felt a part of this wedding, and truth the told - the family. 

Thank you for such a ripe experience (pun intended!), and for allowing us to bring your vision to life. I say this every time, but I will truly never forget how beautiful this weekend was - or finally skinny dipping in that lake on the way home :) 

Happy weekending lovers of the land!
