"..Josephine and Michael met among the picturesque mountains of Kelowna, so it was only fitting that they would choose to say 'I do' in the area. For their late-summer celebration, the two settled on the CedarCreek Estate Winery for an intimate outdoor ceremony of just 61 guests followed by a delicious six-course dinner at the historic Laurel Packinghouse..."

“ … This trash the dress, or rock the frock session as
photographer Jessica Zais has coined it, came about after a mock wedding shoot she did with Stage Right Etc. They had a dress from a second hand store that was altered for the shoot, and thought, why not get a little dirty with it? From a breathtaking flower field, to a library, to a beach- they got some amazing shots with an adorable bride, and as you can see, they did dirty it up a bit:) … “

Stage Right Etc. paid homage to the story and the setting for Anne of Green Gables while also giving it their own twist - like the awesome teacup centrepiece!...Sweet on You made mini carrot cake for each place setting...Thanks so much to Jessica Zais for the photos!"
