Jennifer and Freemon knew they wanted a small wedding with family and a few close friends. So, when God's Mountain Estate appeared on their radar, the quirky, private, and intimate setting immediately checked all the right boxes for their wedding vision: edgy and a bit eclectic with a throwback to the 90s hip-hop house party to round off the celebration. The date they chose (August 12th) was the closest to their anniversary date that was available (which also happened to fall on Jen's parents' wedding weekend!)
They decided to keep decor to a minimum, adding just a few personal touches they felt were "them" including a sleek vintage style motorcycle the groom remodelled himself. Adding to this the brilliance of planner Jacqui Beattie of Mint Julep Events and the mighty crew she assembled, and the Okanagan never saw it coming:
Remodelled motorcycles carving up the mountain roads. Dance floor chair spins and Jennifer rocking a leather jacket with customized lettering. A whole lot of feeling and ceremony looks that kill us every time. Al fresco feasting under the cafe lights with impossibly sweet, warm-hearted humans. Dance moves being immortalized and dresses kicking up dust and mayhem.
The most important aspect of their celebration was to share it with all the humans they invited; who traveled to be with them during this next step in their lives. Above all, Jennifer and Freemon wanted to enjoy every moment and when all would be said and done, to remember the feelings, the laughs, the tears, and the love that would be their wedding in the Okanagan.
