Union Gap Wedding at Spring Creek Homestead // Ashley + Melquin Benavides

Gold, Rose and Navy Wedding

"I love you, I love you more, I love you mostest, Like your hostess, cupcakes

The above quote sums up how adorable the Bride and Groom were on July 1st at Spring Creek Homestead. Ashley and Melquin continually repeated that phrase to one another while dating. On their wedding day they ended the ceremony by repeating it to each other yet again! Keith and Sasha had the honor of photographing this couple's joyous day.

Katie was Ashley's maid of honor. Alyssa, Ashlee and Nichole stood by her side as bridesmaids. A Bride can never have too many close girlfriends! Melquin also chose his best friend, Nick, to be his best man. Carlos, his cousin, Derrick, his friend, and Dino, the Bride's sister's boyfriend all rocked it as the groomsmen. Audreena and Charlee, both three years old, looked so adorable as the little flower girls. Landyn, 8 years old, was such a stud carrying the ring down the aisle! Finders Keepers II  in Spokane had the perfect lace dress for Ashley.  Fashion Corner made sure the bridesmaids all looked lovely in their dresses as well. The reception was catered by Most Wanted Food Truck, and boy did they serve delicious food! DJ Dom made sure this awesome group of people had lots of music to dance to as the night went on! The evening came to a close with a glow stick exit. We loved being a part of Ashley and Melquin's wedding day! Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Benavides!

Cle Elum Wedding at Dragonwood // Aris + James Henry

Yellow, Blue and Camo Wedding

Rhiann and Haley photographed this wedding at Dragonwood Equine Facility in Cle Elum on June 24th. This day was a beautiful example of how helpful and important family can be! The Bride and Groom had many of their friends and family assist in making their day just as they dreamed. These two high school sweethearts, Aris and James, have been together for eight and a half years! The wedding colors were Tiffany blue, yellow, and camo. You can take a guess at one of their hobbies as a couple...hunting! Aris was a gorgeous Bride in her stunning dress from Alfred Angelo. Natalie DeHaven Cakes provided a delicious cake for the evening!

The bridesmaids consisted of Montessa, who was her sister and maid of honor, Taylor, Britni, Fabiana, Kristina, Makenna, and Katie. James chose his brother, Steve, as his best man. Connor, Chad, Ben, Josh, Jonathon, and Kory joined as his groomsmen. Hanging out with the bridal party was a blast! Aris and James - Thank you for letting us be a part of your special day. We had a great time getting to know you both! Congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs. Henry!

Naches Wedding at American Homestead // Andrea + Stephen King

Pink and Mint Wedding

Lachelle and Keith photographed this wedding at American Homestead on June 24th. The whole day was abounding with love exemplified from the family and friends gathered to see the two become one. Andrea and Stephen were joined by their children, Aidan and Morgan. Between sharing vows they wrote for each child, and having special dances with the children, this was an unforgettable wedding.

Andrea and Stephen were such a joy to spend the day alongside. We loved getting to know the two on a personal level. Stephen is an accomplished pianist and organist. His love was very apparent for Andrea. It stood out most when we found out he recorded a version of him playing "A Dream is a Wish" for the bridal party to walk down to. But wait - it gets better! He actually wrote and played the song Andrea walked down the aisle to and named it, "The Queens Procession". Of course with the Groom being as committed as he was, the Bride was just as well. The dedicated Bride held more than one major role! She was the coordinator, planner, and florist! The paper flowers intertwined within the centerpieces were handcrafted out of the grooms old sheet music. Guys...this couple really knew how to be sentimental. We loved it!

The Bride's mother gave her a six pence for her shoe that she had been holding onto since the bride was 2 years old. We were also informed that the Bride's cousin made the bridesmaids jewelry. Including family in anyway throughout the wedding planning is such a beautiful way to show them you care, and treasure their impact on your life.

Yes this wedding was full of affectionate details, but the family also knew how to have fun! Half way through the reception Andrea wanted to run down to the river and do a "trash the dress" session. This was way too much fun! A whole crowd of guests followed us down. Keith was standing on a rock in the middle of the river in order to capture the moment perfectly. He managed to walk away without any water on his shoes (or camera!). The bride on the other hand was completely soaked. Stephen gave into pure pressure and joined her. Pretty soon the bridal party was in the river. Thankfully it had been hot that day, so it didn't seem to be too bad...!

I think it is safe to say this couple was a blast to work with. We loved seeing how they connected with their guests, and their willingness to try new ideas. Aidan and Morgan are lucky to have such fun parents! Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. King!
