A Rainy Wedding Day Inspiration

Raeanne & Joel say "I Do" with a summer wedding and experience why rain on your wedding day can actually be a good thing

Our wedding was August 25th, 2018 at Predator Ridge Resort. We had been planning our wedding for one day short of 1 year. 

We searched for venues until we drove out to view Predator Ridge. I knew the moment we saw the breathtaking scenery and patio overlooking the golf course that it was our dream venue.

We met with our Predator Ridge Event Planner that day, and she was so friendly and willing to show us around.  From the day we secured our date, our Event Planner was amazing to have helping me sort through the fine details. She was always there to return my phone calls and countless emails of questions, and finishing touches.

The rest of the staff at the resort were so helpful anytime we called in to arrange tee times or rooms for guests. It made the time leading up to our day, more exciting having the kindness from the staff.

We had planned our day to be a sunny august day, having our ceremony on the outdoor patio overlooking the golf course. The patio was our favourite part of the venue and we dreamed about how it would unfold, all year long.

On the day of it was only 14 degrees outside and smokey, as the Okanagan tends to have in the summer. We got a drizzle of rain at the very end of our ceremony, which cleared up some of the smoke in the valley and allowed us to see the view. 

This memory I will have forever and so many of our guests commented on how the rain had perfect timing and created such a view.

The staff were so quick to run out a few umbrellas to us at the ceremony, and our Event Planner was with us the entire day to ensure things were going as planned.

After the ceremony, we drove golf carts around the resort for photos and this was one of our favourite parts of the day. The course is one of the nicest in the Okanagan. There are so many picturesque spots for pictures, we really got lucky with ours. The views from the cliff, overlooking the lake, mountains in the background by the water, really cannot be beat.

We lucked out with an incredible sunset that evening, of orange and pink colors so bright – the two of us snuck off for more pictures and still are admiring those photographs.

We had 110 guests join us on our day and all 15 rooms we had blocked off for us were full. Guests had amazing reviews about the accommodations, and raved about the food at our dinner reception. Many told us they hadn’t eaten food that good at a wedding before!

I would recommend Predator Ridge to anyone who is planning their dream wedding!
