Chris and Nicky – Sunpeaks Mountain Resort Winter Wedding

Holly Louwerse Photography, Kamloops Winter Mountain Wedding in Sun Peaks Resort   Chris & Nicky Wow. Wow. Wow! These two! Lovely, relaxed, realistic, dynamic, organized, stylish, beautiful, game for anything, genuine and kind...some of the best people around.  From Kamloops Chris and Nicky decided to have a intimate winter wedding with just their families and closest friends at Sun Peaks Resort in the adorable chapel at the top of the mountain, it was beautiful.  Leading up to the big day we had incredibly cold weather, and for someone who is almost always cold I was certainly a little nervous. But the weather was in our favour, fresh snow the days prior, a crisp cool morning to keep everything light and fluffy and then just as we started taking portraits at the top of the mountain the sun bursted out of the clouds and we had absolute magic!! Excitement levels went through the roof! Chris and Nicky are always up for doing what it takes to get dramatic photographs (just see their engagement photos from Wells Gray Park!!) and this was no exception! Dancing among the ice crystals these two braved the cold as we frolicked all over Sun Peaks Mountain – Love, adrenaline and excitement keeping them warm!  After taking the chairlift back down the mountain we had a quick warm up by the fire at the Sun Peaks Grand in the village. Returning after to the Ski Chalet with their families for an intimate evening of celebrations. This day was perfect.  Chris and Nicky, thank you so much for having us as a part of your day. You two are truly a force to be reckoned with, I am excited to see the adventures you will get up to in the many years to come. Congratulations you two! You are the best.

Cooperman Family

Just before Christmas, during that cold snap Clearwater had in December, and the Coopermans get full on with their ski lodge (Sol Mountain, go follow them now!), seemed to be the perfect time for some family photographs. If there is a family that can handle a freezing cold snowy family portrait shoot, it is the Coopermans!! That beautiful afternoon glow, the family dogs Betty & Earl, and some family love – the cold weather was certainly worth it. ...as someone once told me, "If ever I have kids, they have to be like Sabines kids!"   Thanks for a fun afternoon Coopermans! Always nice to see you guys. ps, thanks Josee for the styling!!

Ryan & Jacqui – Vavenby BC Ranch Wedding

Giggles, cute looks, roaring laughter, a hay bale tower, beautiful fields, rustic barns, and that true love that makes you feel all fuzzy inside. These two are total gems through and through. I have known Ryan for many years and he is one of the most genuine nice happy people I know. And Jacqui is incredible, stunning (that red hair!), thoughtful, kind, and has a laugh that makes you want to laugh even though you have no idea what is going on. Jacqui loves the fine details and has the talent to pull it off perfectly. This wedding was filled with all those shabby chic details you see and think “if only I could pull that off”… and then they did!! Beautiful pieces kept appearing all day it was incredible! … custom hangers for each of the bridesmaids that she did herself?! Yes please!! Jacqui, I am sure there is a future for you in wedding planning if your current job doesn't work out! (and then you can move back to BC!!!) Now living in Calgary, Ryan and Jacqui hosted their wedding on Ryans family ranch in Vavenby BC. Near the location where his brother got married a few years ago, which was one of my first weddings!! So this was special for me too. They held the reception at the Clearwater BC Ski Hill which has all the cozy log feels and a great dance floor that was heavily used. This day was perfect. All that to say, and as cliche as it is…. these two are perfect together Thank you for having Holly Louwerse Photography capture your wedding day, I truly enjoyed it and really really really really wish you guys lived closer!!

Dustin & Candice – Vavenby Wedding

2016-10-14_0090 Love, laughs, classic cars, a big red barn, affectionate dogs, loads of flowers, guns, hay bail statues, live music, country dancing, beaches, sunsets, lightening storms and even a donkey! This wedding was all sorts of special!! Candice grew up in Vavenby BC so this means she is down to earth, capable of pretty much any activity you can name, and may or may not have been a rock star in a past life. Knowing all this, I was excited to meet Dustin because he must be some kind of awesome to be able to keep up. And yes, as well as being totally adoring of Candice, he has a heart of gold and is every bit of rock star that pairs perfectly with Candice. Not to mention grows a mighty fine beard!! Now living just outside of Kamloops, Candice and Dustin decided to host their wedding on Candices family’s ranch in Vavenby. In their big B-E-A-UTIFUL red barn. It was stunning! 18 months ago it was a full fledged cattle barn, this summer it turned into a quintessential, shabby chic, rustic barn wedding venue!! Top that off with a beautiful smoked prime rib dinner from Kam Lake View Meats, live music by the Dave Colemine Band, and speeches keeping everyone laughing. These guys totally nailed it! This was a day to remember. Thank you Dustin and Candice for having myself and Rebecca as a part of your day! You guys are so much fun and it felt like a reunion for me, I loved it! Wishing you all the best in the many adventures to come!!

Andrew & Kailee – Okanagan Wedding

Babes. Stunners. Smoke shows. {insert good looking person adjective here}. These two! Wow. I have known Kailee since high school in Clearwater BC and the few things I know about Kailee is that she is always in for a good time, loves to laugh, and has a heart of gold. When I heard she was getting married to Andrew I knew he must be pretty awesome, and Kailee, he truly is. Calm, organized, a top knot and those dance moves!! Yeooww! These two compliment each other incredible well. Together their laughter is contagious (my face hurt from laughing), they both will sing their heart out to all the classic songs you can think of, and dance like there is no tomorrow. Both relaxed, low maintenance and carefree these two look at each other like there is nothing more important in the world. Living in Kamloops BC these two hosted their wedding on the beaches of Penticton BC in the SS Sicamous; The largest surviving stern wheeler in Canada!! Grand staircases, beautiful lounges, a classic dinning hall, and viewing decks to watch the sun set over Okanagan Lake – we felt like we were on the set of the Titanic... and may or may not have had to do a few poses to match. But seriously, a dream venue. After the ceremony the bridal party got onto a party barge and cruised Lake Okanagan for the afternoon. Laughs, drinks, shotgunning, dancing and swimming – Even if Kailee wasn't planning on getting her hair wet it didn't phase her one bit when she accidentally totally submerged herself. A stunning day, from start to finish. Congratulations you two! Thank you for having myself and Rebecca as a part of your day. Was great to catch up with you, and your friends and families are just the greatest. I laughed a ton! Looking forward to seeing all the crazy hilarious adventures you two get up to in the many years to come!

David & Liesbeth – Adventure Elopement – Wells Gray Park

Wow. Wow. WOW!! David and Liesbeth are so lovely and trusting it is beautiful to be around. They told me about what they do when they go out to dinner, and I believe it says so much for their character; David will call the restaurant a week prior, chat and get to know the chef, tell the chef a little bit about him an Liesbeth, and then explain that they will be eating at his restaurant in a week. This is where David asks the Chef to prepare for them whatever he would like and not be restricted by a menu; he is the chef with the skills, knowledge and taste, they want to see what he would cook when free to cook what he would like! They trust the Chef so much they never even look at the menu. They have the same game-plan with Photographers. So when I first spoke with Liesbeth and she said that they wanted to elope, and the location and itinerary was entirely up to me! I thought I had died and went to heaven. An adventure elopement. Booya!! I always say I am a better photographer when I have a waterfall or a wedding dress - add a crazy in love couple to the scene and it was the Best. Day. Ever. Liesbeth bought her dress the week before, a local Clearwater florist created a beautiful bouquet, their bests friends from Saskatchewan joined to witnesses, and their Pastor from Kamloops was up for the adventure - everything came together perfectly. David and Liesbeth drove up from Kamloops and I met them for the first time in Clearwater moments before they were to be married. I was instantly greeted with so much warmth and love I knew we were in for a great afternoon. We drove up to Wells Gray together, laughing most of the way, held the ceremony at the base of Dawson Falls, enjoyed wine in the forest near by and then continued onto the iconic Helmcken Falls and a few other locations in Wells Gray Park. David and Liesbeth, you two are lovely, give the greatest hugs, are up for anything, and have so much hope and trust. Thank you so much for having me as part of your wedding day. It was beautiful. I felt honoured.

Aaron & Cassie – Clearwater BC Wedding

Lovely!! There are no other words to describe Aaron & Cassies wedding day. These two are awesome together – adoring, beautiful, and so incredibly relaxed it blew my mind!! Upon meeting their two daughters you know right away this family loves and adores each other more than anything in the world. The ceremony and reception were held on in his grandparents backyard in Clearwater BC on the North Thompson River, the rain stayed away just far enough to give a beautiful stormy backdrop on a sunny evening. Cassie & Aaron were the picture of calm and relaxed all day, enjoying every moment with their close friends and family. It was truly lovely. Congratulations you two! Wishing you all the happiness in the many years to come!

Mitch & Brooke – Ranch Wedding, Kamloops BC

Oh there are far to many things I could say about this Shabby Chic Ranch Wedding! As cliche as it is, Mitch and Brooke are perfect for each other. To name a few, their love for Christ, hunting, fun, and cuddles. But the reality is, I felt honoured to witness such a beautiful union of two very incredible families. Growing up along side Mitch, one thing I have come to know about the Fichtner family is that there are two main priorities; everyone must have fun, and everyone must be loved. Mitch, Brooke, and their incredible families exceeded this beyond all measures; They hosted a wedding that will be remembered for a very, very, very long time. They converted their barn into the reception hall and held the ceremony a short walk away in a field by pioneer-era cabins and a pond. There were games, authentic Mennonite Rollkuchen, live music (from their insanely musically talented family members), dancing, doggies, tons of laughter and so much love. I can be sure everyone left feeling loved. Narrowing down the photographs became infinitely more difficult because of these reasons:
  • The bride and grooms connection is just so much fun to photograph. See their winter engagement photographs for more proof!
  • The groom had the best reaction to seeing his bride I have ever seen!
  • The brides dress cannot be photographed at a bad angle.
  • My brother is the best man, and my friends are in the bridal party.
  • My family is amongst the guests.
  • There are so many cool locations on the property to photograph (this may mean hiking up a large hill).
  • That cake though!!
  • The dancing moves were flying! Square dancing, swing dancing, children and doggies!
  • .......and the list goes on!
All that to say, Mitch and Brooke, I am so happy for you guys and cannot wait to see what adventures you get up to in the many years to come. Congratulations!
