Well, yesterday was the big day for Gary & Missy, and it was everything anyone could have expected to be and more. The day started off overcast and a little drizzly, but Gary is blessed with the golden touch so it was really no surprise to anyone that just minutes before the ceremony was to take place, the clouds cleared and the sun broke through streaming over the lawn at the ranch in Kelowna.

I can't say enough good things about this couple or this wedding. You might think that with all these photographers around it would be business talk non-stop, and there is a bit of that, but Gary and Melissa have created such an amazing atmosphere here at their home that you relax almost the minute you walk through the door.

If you know Gary and Melissa, you know that Gary's energy is rambunctious and loud, while Missy is more quiet and observant, but it's so obvious how well they balance each other out. Their ceremony was one of the most emotional I've ever heard or seen--even me, who never even listens as vows are said, couldn't keep it together when Gary first saw Missy walk down the aisle.

Anyway, I could go on, but I think I'll just share a bunch of photos for now, and of course a slideshow to celebrate the wedding of the year!
