Scenes from the Okanagan

We're just back from a mini-vacation to the sunny Okanagan, specifically Kelowna and Penticton. I just love this area of BC, something about being there just makes me happy and just feels like summer. I am completely in denial about the dwindling days of August. Please, please don't start talking about fall yet...

It was a wonderful weekend of sunshine, family, friends, and a beeeautiful wedding. Congratulations Jason and Chelle! Here's a mini photo tour of the weekend:

  7. The birdcage blusher on the flower girl is too cute for words & your peach photo is ahh-mazing! Next time you come to the Okanagan I must introduce you to the "Peach Lady" and/or Davidson Orchard.

  12. You're right that the Okanagan is really the only place in BC that gets hot. We are going there in a week to visit friends and do lots of wine tours. Great photos!!
