November Okanagan Wedding Inspiration:  Pre-Holiday Sparkle

Emelie & Jared say 'I Do" with a late November Okanagan Wedding

"Every aspect of our wedding was perfect, and I can’t think of a better place to host a wedding!"

There’s something beautifully cosy about early winter sunsets and a winter wedding.  With an abundance of soft light from fairy lights and candles, to the sparkle of that first hung ornament, to the jovial pre-holiday mood of your guests, pre-Christmas weddings can be that bit more magical.

There's no such thing as a bad time of year to visit the Okanagan and pre-Holiday weddings are a great time to say "I Do". The sun sits lower in the sky during winter, which can make for some gorgeous soft light, giving your wedding photographs a magical tone. 

Need some inspiration? Explore Emilie & Jared's beautiful pre-Christmas wedding experience and what led them to chose Predator Ridge as their wedding destination.

We got married at Predator Ridge at the end of November of 2017 and it was the perfect venue!

We loved that we could have the ceremony and reception at the same location and having the ceremony in the lodge meant we didn’t have to worry about the weather while still enjoying the beautiful views.

The reception was held in the ballroom, and we were lucky enough to piggyback on Predator Ridge’s gorgeous Christmas decorations, the trees looked spectacular!

All the staff were so helpful, and I don’t know how I would have made it through the wedding planning process without our Predator Ridge Event Planner, she was awesome! 

The bride and her family stayed at Predator Ridge the night before, and we had hair and makeup come to our room in the morning which was perfect!

All our guests loved the food!  We heard so many compliments on how good everything tasted, LONG after the wedding, so it was very memorable. 

We stayed the night after the wedding, and it was so nice to just head up to the room after a night of dancing! The rooms are very romantic, and we had several friends who took the opportunity to have a couple’s getaway weekend. 

Every aspect of our wedding was perfect, and I can’t think of a better place to host a wedding!
