As most of you know, I was gonna marry the man of my dreams in my dream vineyard @fitzwine this Saturday. Unfortunately I was woken up this morning with the news that our venue is on fire and the town of peachland in BC, Canada has been fully evacuated. I am currently on my bachelorette party, and the wedding is 2 days away. We currently have no place to get marry, and thats all I want to do, marry the love of my life. Please repost these photos and caption, so we can hopefully get some help and suggestions from anyone in the Okanagan region. We are so thankful to all our friends and family for your support and help, and the love @tylerbalaban and I have for one another. That is the most important thing #❤ #fires #weddingday #wedding #bc #canada #okanaganfire #bcfires #beautifulbritishcolumbia #lakeliving #wildfire #wildfires #lights #colors #okanagan #kelowna #peachland #lakecountry #winecountry #vineyards #wineries #wineallday #outdoors #naturelover #coolshot #insane #unreal #isthisreallife #pleasehelp
