Chad + Melissa // A Durali Villa Wedding in Vernon

Chad + Melissa’s wedding was a fantastic way to end August 2011. Melissa is a wedding planner herself for Sweet Beginnings, so we’ve worked together on numerous weddings. It was great to see her on the other side of the coin on this day. Their special day took us to beautiful Vernon, BC. As you’ll see in this teaser, Kalamalka Lake made an unreal backdrop for a good portion of the day. If you’re unfamiliar with Kal Lake, I think it’s fair to say that it’s one of the most stunning fresh water lakes in the world. It’s Native American name means ‘lake of many colours’.

After a ‘first look’, the outdoor ceremony took place in Kekuli Bay overlooking Kal Lake. The reception was at Durali Villa which I highly recommend if you’re looking for a venue in Vernon. It was perfect.

After trips to the bar and candy buffet, the night rounded off with the Kinshira Performance Group (fire dancing), Marble Slab ice-cream and lots of dancing. These are the highlights from Chad + Melissa’s day:
