Al Fresco Rehearsal Dinner by Lisa Catherine Photography
The world is full of magic things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper.
— W.B. Yeats

Summer, a time when everything tastes sweeter. When love blossoms on warm nights and we long for the refresh of a cool breeze. The night stars are our only source of light and we linger just a few moments longer taking in the simplicity of summers beauty. Colors ignite our senses in a way that only the bright color palettes of summer can and our souls warm with the intensity of it all. Today's beautiful Al Fresco Rehearsal Dinner was captured by It List Member Lisa Catherine, when she attended the Boheme Workshop, and it is the perfect representation of summers untamed beauty. 

From photographer Lisa Catherine: "Nestled within the beautiful Okanagan overlooking Skaha Lake lies God's Mountain Estate, a stunning venue creating a setting as though you have traveled across the ocean without having to leave Canada. 

The stunning table setting, styled by White Event Studio, was an homage to the stylists Mexican heritage with its presence of terracotta, bright citrus colored florals, papayas, and mangoes. 

The couple ventured out for a beautiful portrait session with views of the Skaha Bluffs and Lake. The brightly coloured silk ribbon from Stella Wolfe and the stunning bouquet from Celsia Floral married the colour scheme perfectly with the table setting. A perfect evening to dine al fresco was a satisfying end to the celebration with the most exquisite meal provided by Joy Road Catering."
