Prosser Wedding at Airfield Estates // Amanda + John Zabell

Gold, Navy and Rose Wedding

Tavis and Amy photographed this wedding on May 12th at Airfield Estates, located in Prosser. It felt like a little getaway, but wasn't too far from Yakima! The venue was absolutely perfect for Amanda and John's wedding day! The whole atmosphere was dreamy. They had an awesome wine barrel backdrop at the reception...not to mention the romantic feel put in place from all the string lights and many candles throughout!

The Bride and Groom have been together for six years. They have two beautiful daughters, Aubree, age four, and Reagan, age three. You could tell Aubree and Reagan were loving being the flower girls. They even had matching dresses! The family was so darling. Speaking of family, instead of having a wedding cake, different families made pies for dessert! The homemade pies were displayed so lovely on two ladders and wood tables in between.

Saundra, Kayla and Raelyn, Amanda's sisters, were all included in the bridal party. Along with Laura, her best friend. I love when the bridesmaids are willing to do whatever for the Bride. The girls had fuzzy socks with their bridal role on the bottom. It was awesome! They were so fun to spend the day with! John had his brother, Davey, and friends, Jason, Cole and Butch as his groomsmen. This bridal party was just a blast! Saundra's son, Wyatt, age three, was the ring bearer and as he walked down the aisle, he covered his eyes to block to sun. It was adorable!

My two favorite quotes of the day were:
  • When we were doing family photos I called out a few names and John said, "News team! Assemble!" A memorable quote Ron Burgundy says in Anchorman...made my heart happy.
  • Amanda had so many bugs stuck in the layers of her dress. She said, "I have every bug in Prosser in my dress." :) 
We had such a wonderful time capturing Amanda and John's wedding day. Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Zabell!

Yakima Wedding at Cascade Garden // Lindsay + David Schulz

Eggplant and Silver Wedding

Tavis and Amy photographed Lindsay and David's wedding on May 6th at the gorgeous Cascade Garden in Yakima. The day was presented with rain showers, but Tavis and Amy worked to shelter the Bride and Groom as much as possible! Umbrella's were contributed as well :) The venue was perfect as there are a few buildings on the property to stay covered under, and the massive amount of greenery helped too! After photographing their engagement session last year, we were so thrilled to be capturing their love for one another yet again!

Lindsay and David have known each other since high school. Lindsay attended CWU for school, and a temporary job brought her to Yakima. They have been together for four years, and say they love the Yakima Valley! Their first look was so touching...lots of happy tears. He said something along the lines of, "you look so beautiful. I can't believe I get to marry you today". All of his words to her during the first look were just so heartfelt and meaningful! Later on, they danced to "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing" as their first dance. It was easy to see they were meant to be together!

The bridal party consisted of all family. Reesa, the Bride's sister, was her maid of honor. The Groom's sister in law, Rashell was her bridesmaid. Greg, the Groom's father, and his brother, Matt, were the groomsmen. Everyone was so supportive of this marriage! After the ceremony, Staci's Catering provided a delicious dinner.

The happy couple spent their honeymoon in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico. We wish them a blessed marriage! Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Schultz!

Naches Wedding at American Homestead // Julie + Reese Crenshaw

Teal, Gray and Blush Wedding
Tavis and Amy photographed this wedding on April 21st at American Homestead in Naches. Julie and Reese were such an enjoyable couple to spend the day alongside! The weather was a bit on the chilly side, which led to lots of cuddles with loved ones all day:) It was evident that their family and friends backed up these two as each others soul mates. Many of Julie's family flew all the way up from California. Weddings are always fun as they bring everyone together!

American Homestead has the perfect cabin to utilize as a bridal suite. The Make-up Boutique did the girl's makeup, and they looked fabulous! Miranda from Studio on Sixth styled Julie's hair. It was voluminous and curly; matching her bridal look perfectly. Alyson from Something Blue Floristry made AMAZING flowers for this event. Her gorgeous strapless dress was from Bellevue Bridal Boutique. The back was so pretty how it laced up! Julie had a garter with her gun and knife in it, as well as very tall red boots with special charms dedicated to loved ones not at the wedding. This girl was rockin'! One of our favorite moments was during the ceremony...they walked down the aisle to "Another One Bites the Dust"!

Julie and Reese had an awesome bridal party! Karen, her sister, Julie's friends Holly, Jensena and Ashley, and last but not least, her cousins Stacy and Amelia all made stunning bridesmaids. They were having a blast literally all day! Bryce, his brother, and friends Sean, Dale, Warren and Ryan were the groomsmen. They seemed to know exactly what to say and do in order to get a laugh out of Reese!

Cascade Catering made a delicious dinner per usual! Reese's sister-in-law, Elise, made the scrumptious cupcakes and beautiful cake. She did not disappoint! Pristine Entertainment had almost all the guests up and dancing! It was such an entertaining night! Mr. and Mrs. Crenshaw have a bright marriage ahead of them! Congratulations to the happy couple!

Union Gap Wedding at Spring Creek Homestead // Brooke + Rob Kerr

Navy, Blush and White Wedding

Rhiann and Cloey photographed Brooke and Rob's wedding on April 14th at Spring Creek Homestead in Union Gap. These two have been together for 5 years! What a pleasure to spend the day with such an on-fire couple!! The way Rob graciously loves Brooke, and vise versa, was so heartwarming to witness. Rob is a ridiculous sports fan...I'm talking hardcore; specifically rooting for Gonzaga. To honor his love for sports, Brooke had Gonzaga themed garters made. It was awesome!

Residing on the west side of the state, they chose to hold their wedding in Yakima since some of Brooke's family is from the area. The wedding was set up beautifully. In fact, it was one of the best weddings we have seen at this venue! We heard quite a few guests mention they flew in to join them for this special day!

IM Artistry drove from Seattle and did a fabulous job with Brooke and her girl's makeup. Belu Salon styled all of the girl's hair. They are always professional and positive to work alongside! After buying and returning two wedding dresses, Brooke finally found the perfect gown from The Wedding Bell in Tacoma. The shop personalized straps to put on the dress, and they looked beautiful! When her dress, jewelry, makeup, shoes and all the bridal details were in place, Sinclair Floral brought everything together with the gorgeous bouquet. Brooke looked absolutely stunning!

We loved that this Bride included her 4 nieces, Lily, Samara, Mary Grace and Ashtyn as flower girls. They looked darling in their matching dresses. It's always nice to see the Bride and Groom being surrounded by a supportive group of friends and family. Brooke had her best friend, Rochelle, as her maid of honor. The bridal party consisted of her three sisters, Sarah, who was said to be the "best sister of honor" during the toasts, as well as Elizabeth and Chelsea. These girls were so fun! Stephanie, a close friend of Brooke's was also a bridesmaid. Rob had his brother, Rick, as his best man. During the reception we were entertained as Rick broke out and rapped to "Ice Ice Baby". It was hilarious! Terry, Joel, Kent and Bob rocked it as the groomsmen. They had matching socks and personalized flasks with their name. Oh, and they had the cutest ring bearer...their dog, Diego. They tied their rings to his collar as he ran down the aisle :)

Leading into the night, Debbie's Catering made sure every guest was provided with a delicious Mexican style inspired dinner. Big Ern Productions had everyone on their feet dancing away those tacos! The Bride and Groom did a cake smash contest, aka: cake to the face. They each had a jar and throughout the night the guests tipped whoever they wanted to see get cake smashed! Brooke ended with $800 and Rob with $1,000! Caked up Delights made a delicious cake for Rob to get smeared all over his face ;)

The Bride and Groom enjoyed their honeymoon in the sunshiny Cabo. We had such a great time capturing this couple's unique day! Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Kerr!
