Sweet and Lovely Vineyard Wedding || Deer Park, WA

Introducing Mr. & Mrs. Tristen and Dezeray Paz

Tristen and Dezeray are high school sweethearts and such a fun and lovely couple. We enjoyed the bright, beautiful and unique details they incorporated into their wedding on July 17, 2016 at The Castle Vineyards in Deer Park.

The venue featured many lovely landscaping features around the property – with a beautiful garden like atmosphere that made staging details and portraits a real treat! An Elegant Bridal Suite and Man Cave made getting ready on site a breeze.

With the help of her mom, the bride spent most of this last year meticulously piecing together the details of her wedding with many handmade décor items.

Once Dezeray was ready, she wanted a special moment with her dad, so we staged a father-daughter “first look”

We then did a bride and groom “first look” under the leafy arch, where Dezy would later begin her processional

Their Ceremony took place on the big lawn right in front of a beautiful waterfall fountain and featured a candle lighting honoring two grandmothers that recently passed and the putting together of a Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich which signified their unity.

Elegant Rustic Barn Wedding || Mica, WA

Introducing Mr. & Mrs. Jared and Ashley Abrams!

%name Elegant Rustic Barn Wedding || Mica, WA Wedding Photography Spokane Valley Engagement Photo Photographer

When we first met with Jared and Ashley, we were delighted by how much these two were truly made for each other! Their first date was at a Starbucks, and Jared proposed to Ashley in a pumpkin patch last Fall – How cute is that?! Most importantly, these two share their faith in Christ and are dedicated to living out their marriage God’s way.

Their wedding day beautifully incorporated details sentimental to both them and their families – The church, the family barn, the “getaway car”, the Bride’s ring with heirloom family elements, the flowers and decor put together by the Bride’s mom, all had special meaning.

The fun started with a Fiesta rehearsal dinner the night before their big day, hosted by Jared’s wonderful parents!

The next day was a whirlwind of anticipation and excitement, as Ashley got ready at her parent’s home and Jared got ready at the church.

They both had special gifts to give to each other – a watch for him, and a personalized Bible for her.

When everyone was ready to go, we got to capture the father of the bride’s first look of his daughter as well as the groom’s first look of his bride.

One special element of the marriage ceremony was the incorporation of a beautiful tradition: God’s Knot – Cord of Three Strands. “A cord of three strands is not easily broken” – Eccl 4:12. This tradition symbolizes the importance of God’s influence in a strong marriage.

They made their getaway to the reception in Grandpa’s Buick – a classic that has been a part of the Bride’s family for decades!

Rustic Nautical Wedding || Twin Lakes, ID

Introducing Mr. and Mrs. Mike and Amanda Hays!

%name Rustic Nautical Wedding || Twin Lakes, ID Wedding Photography Spokane Valley Engagement Photo Photographer

These two have a passion for the sea and for having fun together with their friends and family! We are honored to be a part of their shindig as they tied the knot (literally) with a traditional hand-fasting ceremony on Amanda’s family property in Twin Lakes, Idaho.

The fun started with a laid-back BBQ style rehearsal dinner the night before. We got to meet their family, hear the band practice and witness the start up of the BBQ pit for the pig roast that will be enjoyed the next day!

The wedding details included many hand-made nautical elements – including a gorgeous wedding arch, guestbook, cake table, ring-bearing boat, and a hand-carved heart-shaped box made with African Purple Heart wood: all made by the groom, a talented boat-builder!
