Wow. What to say about Zane & Robyn’s amazing Sparkling Hill Resort wedding?
For starters – what an amazing wedding. We had the best time with these two. They’re so gracious, kind and wonderful to be around, which seriously makes us love what we do so much more. We always want to go the extra mile with any couple who hires us, but when a couple is so good to work for, the added energy and enthusiasm means we walk away with some exceptional photos and film.
For those of you who have never been to Sparkling Hill Resort in Vernon, you’ve got to make the trip :)
Sparkling Hill is about 5 minutes drive through Predator Ridge Resort and Golf, one of the best resorts Okanagan golf has to offer. And only 15 minutes outside of Vernon, Sparkling Hill feels like you’re in on top of the world without being remote. (If you’re coming from Kelowna, Sparkling Hill Resort is about an hours drive. From Vancouver Sparkling Hill is about 5 hours away)
The wedding began at Sparkling Hill Resort.
We had the treat to photograph in one of their unreal Kurspa suites. The best part about Sparkling Hill is probably the huge windows in every room which provide tons of amazing light to photograph and stunning views of the Okanagan Valley and Okanagan Lake. After preparations finished we left Sparkling Hill and drove down through Predator Ridge back to Vernon – grabbing a few photos on the way. The ceremony was held at one of the oldest and most iconic churches in Vernon, and after an awesome ceremony we headed back to Predator Ridge for some wedding photos.
We even lucked out on our way to the Sparkling Hill Wedding Reception with some awesome sunset lighting.
Once we were back at Sparkling Hill Resort for the wedding reception, guests were treated to an amazing dinner (Sparkling Hill Resort has several premiere Okanagan Chefs) and then danced the night away in Sparkling Hills Gernot’s Private Dining Room. For those of you who haven’t been to Sparkling Hill Resort, its set at the very top of the mountain. This means there are some amazing sunsets over Okanagan Lake. Once the wedding cake was cut we snuck away with the bride, groom and their adorable son for a couple sunset silhouettes to top off an amazing wedding reception.
But enough with the descriptions! We could go on and on about this couple, their wedding ceremony, photoshoot, reception and Sparkling Hill Resort for days. We know you’d much rather see some of the photos and watch their Sparkling Hill Resort wedding film! So without further ado – we hope you enjoy this Sparkling Hill Resort Wedding!
