nicole's prep: beach wedding; nelson wedding photographer

Nicole is a gorgeous bride whom I was privileged to work with at a friend's wedding years ago.  She was then the one in short dress, standing in the sand, lending her support on an equally warm day on the shores of Kootenay Lake, Nelson.  Men in formal black, bride in stunning white, girls in gorgeous color and summer sky and mountainous terrain melding into water blue.  It was Nicole's family property where the girls' prepped in the sage bedroom with beautiful light.
Today it was the Kelowna couple - Nicole and Kihenjo's - day.  Brilliant color, African singing, bold florals, bridesmaids' sparkly silver necklaces, abundant ruffles and dad's first look.  The ceremony took place at their property, with colors of indigo and fuschia, overlooking the lake.  While the risen water levels swallowed much of their early summer beach, the views were not lacking.
It's so refreshing, in these first few days of fall, to revisit summer immortalized through Nicole and Kihenjo's beach wedding.  And this is just the first in a line of celebrations spanning from here to Kenya!
