Romance is definitely the theme today as we head west, way west to the heart of wine country in the interior of British Columbia. Kelowna, one of the interior's largest cities, is a bustling urban centre where cold crisp winters give way to scorching hot summers. Amidst the beauty of vineyards and lakes, Kelowna offers couples the ideal setting for nuptials with a "Mediterranean" feel.
Amira Harris of Posh Productions Event Planning & Design, in Calgary, sent us the following recommendation (thanks Amira!):
Lake Okanagan Resort, which is located in Kelowna, British Columbia, is unique, remote and can accommodate weddings of up to 175 guests. Not only is it breathtaking to be on the resort but to be in wine country is beautiful.
The resort offers an outdoor wedding option where you can choose between the beach with the lake backdrop or the golf course itself.
For your reception and cocktail hour, you can either host it on their deck or indoors. Their main ballroom, which has floor to ceiling windows, allows for a view of the water. Having a wedding at the resort is great since you can do your ceremony & reception in one location and don't have to worry about your guests travelling.
The resort allows so many different options for weddings but the best perk would be that your guests can also book accommodation in a studio, a one bedroom, 2 bedroom or even a chalet right on the grounds of the resort.
The Okanagan hosts many weddings every year not only because of its beauty and the surrounding lake but also because of its great summer weather.
