This modern meets heirloom winter wedding in British Columbia's Okanagan Valley is a perfect blend of classic and contemporary elements that turn the eye without distracting the viewer from the romance.  Jael's vintage style gown shimmers against the backdrop of the snow-covered lake and mountains, while her bridesmaids' decidedly non-winter dresses  pop with rich, rustic hues and short hemlines, accented by black tights and dark ankle boots.  Alex and his groomsmen lean on neutral tones heavy with texture, through the choice of a vest (for Alex) and sweaters (for the guys) which stand out well against the cool surroundings.  Bringing it all together are the effortlessly romantic florals by A New Leaf Floral, which generate a sense of timelessness while contributing extra warmth to the overall aesthetic.  One of the things I love most about this couples' style is that it comes across as especially personal -- not copied off of Pinterest, not cookie-cutter in any way.  Just an unexpected, yet graceful fusion of Jael + Alex's preferences, highlighting who they are individually and reflecting their oneness as a married couple,  Cheers to more weddings well-styled to suit the uniqueness of every couple, and a photographer like Jenna Hill who captures it all beautifully!
