Kelowna Private Estate Wedding

Everything about this Kelowna private estate wedding showcases how beautiful and meaningful intimate weddings can be. From the bridal bouquet of handpicked wildflowers to the handmade ceramic guest favours, this wedding is everything you would wish for an intimate wedding to be: personal, thoughtful, and deliberate. 

The scenic views characteristic of an Okanagan summer are the perfect backdrop for a cliffside ceremony and backyard reception. The bride’s mother is a potter and made all of the lovely vases, votive holders, and wine tags, not only for wedding decor, but also to act as handmade favours for the guests to take home! This Kelowna private estate wedding embraces the intimacy of a small guest count with curated details and meaningful moments. 

Some great advice from Melisent & Jaumell: “Do what feels right for you and your partner. We decided to have a smaller wedding, and celebrate with extended family separately. Each celebration was so special, and we actually got to visit with all of our guests.”

Melisent has always loved this wild flower field behind her family’s estate. She and her mother used these beautiful flowers to also create her bridal bouquet and the decor pieces.
