A Lovely Ranch Wedding In Osoyoos, British Columbia

The Bride And Groom During Speeches

For their wedding day, Kelly and Joe wanted a relaxed celebration in the countryside. “We simply wanted an atmosphere where everyone was comfortable and able to party away from the hustle and bustle of town,” Kelly explains.

The couple settled on Arosa Ranch as their ceremony and reception venue and made the space their own using a wedding colour palette of yellow, grey and cream.

Reception tables in the couple’s tented reception space were topped with burlap runners, wildflower arrangements, yellow linens and homemade blueberry, raspberry and peach jam favours made by the bride,her mother, step-mother and mother-in-law.

Kelly says her favourite part of the celebration was being able to bring together all of the people she loved most.  “It was a once in a lifetime gathering,” she reminisces.
