Last week I featured Middle Beach Lodge near Tofino BC in my first style feature on destination wedidng venues in BC and this week it is off to the sunny Okanagan Wine Country! We often shoot at least one wedding a summer in the Okanagan so while we were there shooting we decided to take a tour through the southern Okanagan to Oliver and Osoyoos. I had been to Oliver when I was much younger but didn’t really remember much so it was like being there for the first time for both of us. I can’t really explain how beautiful Oliver is. It is a pretty small town but is completely surrounded by rolling vineyards as far as you can see banked by black rock cliffs that frame the valley. As we were driving around exploring the area and visiting wineries we started daydreaming about how great it would be to one day have a little vineyard and we would put in a boutique hotel and little bistro and would carve out an area amongst the vines for wedding ceremonies, create architecture that would be great to photograph and would even put in different types of grasses in different areas to use for shooting – yes we can be a bit nerdy that way. We got pretty elaborate in our make believe “one day” plans. Even though my allergies prevent me from enjoying very much wine Burrowing Owl Estate Winery has been a favourite for a while. We decided we would seek it out. With our make believe vineyard fresh in our minds we round a corner in to the driveway and as we pulled up to Burrowing Owl our jaws dropped we looked at each other because this is exactly what we had been day dreaming about all afternoon!!! This place really is incredibly gorgeous and would be an absolutely beautiful place to get married. Many of your guests could stay onsite in their small hotel, the grounds are immaculate with rolling hills of grape vines that back onto the black cliffs, beautifully designed buildings, views of the vallery, and it has one of the most inviting swimming pools ever!!! Please please will one of you readers get married here and give us a call so we can come and spend a few days with you in this gorgeous spot!! Until we make our own daydreams come to fruition we will visit this place and close our eyes and just think for a minute how fantastic it would be to have something like this as our own – maybe one day! For now visits will have to do so get in touch and let us know the date!!
