How they met:
It all began seven years ago, in the hallways of their high school. They met in Grade 10 and two years later graduated as highschool sweethearts. When it came down to popping the question, Ben knew their 7 year anniversary was the right time. That night he asked those 4 little words in Coal Harbour and Kalia said YES!
Kalia and Ben’s Poplar Grove Wedding was years in the making you could say. The couple share many memories in Penticton and chose Poplar Grove Winery for their gorgeous wedding backdrop. I mean those wood elements, the floor to ceiling windows, the jaw dropping backdrop and acres of vineyards are every wedding planner’s dream!
The day began, filled with celebration, as Kalia and her bridal party got glammed up. Ben enjoyed a morning of golf with his groomsmen. Guests began to arrive and shelter themselves from the sun. It was a hot one for sure! The musicians began and Ben escorted his parents down the aisle followed by Kalia on her father’s arm. Poplar Grove’s finest wine was poured as the couple snapped photos and were then welcomed into the tasting room for a long table dinner reception drapped with white linen and luscious floral arrangements. To end the night off, the guests danced outside under a tent and globe lights.
Wishing these two lots of love and many hugs of gratitute for choosing me as their planner.
