There’s a Lot to Love in This Rustic Romantic Summerland Wedding at the Groom’s Family’s Estate

January 14, 2018 | Junebug Weddings

It’s never too early to start dreaming of backyard weddings and spring color palettes, so Lauren and Orin’s rustic Summerland wedding couldn’t have come to us at a more perfect time! The couple opted for an intimate wedding at the groom’s family estate and orchard in British Columbia, which offered plenty of space for an outdoor celebration and lovely natural backdrops for all the portraits and details shots captured by Mathias Fast Photography. The talented designers at Created Lovely Events teamed up with A New Leaf Floral Design to create a rustic-meets-modern dream wedding that featured a soft color palette, floral-forward decor, and geometric gold and wood accents. The bride even added a chic black leather jacket over her gorgeous Truvelle for a modern flare. Every detail was spot on, and now we’re even more excited for spring wedding season!

The Couple:

Lauren and Orin

The Wedding:

Private Estate, Summerland, British Columbia, Canada

Once we decided we were going to have an actual wedding and not elope choosing the venue was a bit of a no brainer. We knew we wanted to get married at the home that has been in Orin‘s family for generations in Summerland, BC. It’s a gorgeous old heritage home and apple orchard, built in the early 1900s. It was so wonderful to have our extended family and friends all together at this place that already has so much history for the Powell family!





One moment that sticks out it for me (Lauren) was walking down the aisle with my Dad. My Auntie Paula was playing her mandolin; we knew what she played would be beautiful, so we didn’t give her any specific song requests. As I reached the aisle she started playing “Ode to Joy” – this was the song she played on her flute many years ago, at my parent’s wedding, when my Mom and Grandpa were walking down the aisle. What a beautiful surprise! It makes me tear up just thinking about it.



We made soap for our guests! I have been making soap for the last 4 or 5 years, so it was an easy choice. One of the first time’s I visited Summerland and met Orin‘s family, his mother taught me how to make soap.
