An O'Keefe Wedding Elopement
I have been photographing Teresa & Dave since 2016 when their daughter was only fifteen months old. In 2019 they added another little dude to their family, and now they're joined in holy matrimony!
Teresa & Dave decided to have their wedding at the Historic O'Keefe Ranch on April 1st, but their beautiful elopement was no joke!
This was my last wedding of my winter elopement special with Sepideh of Vida Ceremonies. This was our second year offering our winter elopement package, which we created as a solution to limitations during the pandemic. It was so popular we decided to offer it again for the 2021/2022 winter months.

This wedding was truly the Dream Team of wedding vendors because my main makeup girl, Brittany, from Brittany Martiniuk Makeup Artistry, painted Teresa's face PERFECTLY! She even gave their beautiful daughter a little touch of makeup of her own and I've never seen her look more grown up.
The winter elopement package included one hour of photos, so for Teresa & Dave that meant time for their ceremony, headshots with family and friends, and then a little time with just their little family.
I have shot several weddings at O'Keefe Ranch and because every inch of the venue is perfect for photos, I love how diverse each wedding album is. Whether you're going in their off season or their busy season, they've got beautiful places to use for your wedding photos.
From their white steeple church, to their old tyme store fronts, to their farm animals, they have everything. They are always great for letting us use wherever we'd like for photos, and even if it's busy with the public, you'll always have beautiful private space for your ceremony.
The O'Keefe ranch is a gorgeous wedding venue, they have a smaller indoor reception area at the Cattleman's Club restaurant, or covered outdoor areas for larger weddings. If you choose the O'Keefe ranch as your wedding venue, all of your wedding photos will include a little bit of Okanagan history, and who doesn't love a good back story?
Congrats on your wedding, Teresa & Dave!
