Style Feature: Burrowing Owl Estate Winery

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!!

Oh my goodness! What a GORGEOUS location and venue. If I were to be getting married, this would be the perfect spot. Perhaps if my husband and I ever renew our vows….

I’m seeing more and more couples choose vineyards and winery’s for their wedding, they always have fantastic scenery and beautiful interiors to offer, really unique style of wedding

Style Feature: Middle Beach Lodge Tofino British Columbia

My poor style feature has been a bit neglected lately!  Well I am bringing it back and every other week I am going to feature something new to inspire your wedding plans! A lot of 2013 couples are just starting to look around for venues and put together ideas around what they want in their wedding venue.  Destination weddings don’t always need to be on a hot beach with palm trees – sometimes they can be the north pacific with old growth rainforest or a hot desert with rows of grape vines. This is part one of a little series on destination wedding venues right here in our back yard!  Being wedding photographers in BC, when we travel around the province we are always scouting wedding photography venues and locations. We can’t help it – we see a beautiful place and we think of how great it would be if we could photograph a couple there. Recently we visited a couple of places that would be amazing choices for wedding venues and not just for the photographic cause. Tofino isn’t really a surprising choice around here – I mean the beaches are gorgeous the forest is incredible and even if the weather isn’t super all the time it is still unbelievably beautiful.  We spent a weekend at Middle Beach Lodge and it was all so pretty and elegantly west coast that I couldn’t help but take some images to share with you. Perched on a point between two beaches this is an incredible venue to bring all your family and friends together to celebrate and spend the whole weekend in one place. And lets face it their signature cinnamon buns at the breakfast bar are pretty damn good and well worth the drive!  So if you are thinking of a destination wedding that isn’t so far from home please give us a call as we would really love meet you up there to photograph your day in this gorgeous little corner of the island. For now I think the images can speak for themselves!  Come back next week for some destination wedding ideas in Okanagan Wine Country!
