American Homestead Wedding in Naches, WA || Krystal + Shawn

Yakima Wedding Photographers

Keith and Lachelle photographed this wedding at the American Homestead in Naches, Washington. They found the bride, Krystal, to be a joyful person with a vibrant personality. The groom, Shawn, possesses a quiet charm, is caring and kind. The couple's individuality complements each other, creating a magnetism between them. We can see why they are drawn to one another!

Krystal and Shawn are from the Tri-Cities area and enjoy the magnificent outdoors. The couple enjoyed a splendid sunny wedding day at the American Homestead which was decorated with sangria purplish-pink flora and ribbon. Wedding guests were gifted wooden fans personalized with the couple's photo and wedding date to mark the occasion. Our Memory Montage photographers especially enjoyed the wedding, as they personally knew many of the guests who attended. Personal relationships are one of the many perks of photographing happy events and living in a small town! The wedding party was also great to work with, as two of them are professional photographers as well. They were entertaining to photograph and understood many of our goals to capture the very best expressions, lighting, and of course, all those fun and sweet moments that weddings and wedding receptions present!

Krystal looked absolutely stunning in a wedding gown from Fashion Corner. The bride's wedding party included Krystal’s sister Stacy, sister-in-law Rachel, and good friends Shannon, Juliana, Kira, Nicole, Brianne, Jenni, and Bethany who all had fun getting ready together. Two year old, Charity, was a darling flower girl. Shawn was accompanied by his twin brother Brendon, close friends Jacob, Cody, and Krystal's brother Jeff. Caleb and Isaiah, ages four and six, served as the handsome ring bearers.

To represent this new beginning in their lives and the joining of their families, Krystal and Shawn each brought a jar of soil from their parent's homes. During the wedding ceremony, the couple used the soil to plant and cultivate a young lilac tree.

The couple is blessed with a very loving family. The tone of the whole day was about enjoying friends and family. The bride and groom are definitely in love and excited to be married! The wedding cake, with frosting roses in lavender, purple and white, was created by the talented Alena, of Cake Kiss and the reception dinner was catered by Cascade Catering. Shawn's brother also gave the newlyweds a great toast at the wedding reception and guest enjoyed giving the couple a sparkler send off. The couple honeymooned in Maui and recently purchased a new home in Tri-Cities where they now reside. Congratulations Krystal and Shawn!

Le Jardin Wedding Photography in Zillah || Alaina + Julian

Yakima Wedding Photographers

"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 
It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, 
it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres." - 1 Corinthians 13:4-7

Alaina and Julian were married on a magnificent summer day at Le Jardin in Zillah, Washington on July, 23, 2016. They have been in love since their young teens and guests enjoyed seeing pictures of the couple displayed at the wedding and reception. It was fun to see how they have changed and grown together over the years.

Julian's mother, Debbie, and her best friend, Mindy, put in SO much planning and time into each and every wedding detail, and there were many! They used a light-colored vintage chest to hold cards brought by guests. The card chest was placed on a cable spool table. There were cute chalkboard signs everywhere that pointed to different activities and attractions such as the JUMBO Jinga and Connect Four games. When it was time for a refreshment, guests had the choice of being served at the hand crafted and painted bar or picking an ice-cold beverage from a standing ice box. The ice chest was framed in wood and painted white with the couple's initials in a heart. A back splash was created from an antique window with the the couple's names and wedding date written on it. The drinking glasses had the couple's wedding date and monogram on them. Shannon from Walter's Floral in Ellensburg created luxurious bouquets and floral arrangements. Clear jewel accents and floral pomander balls hung from the surrounding trees which created an opulent and romantic wedding atmosphere. Alaina, Debbie and Mindy's creative endeavors made everything look spectacular!

The bride wore a gorgeous form fitting, full-length gown from Luly Yang Couture. For her shoe choice, the bride wore personalized Converse shoes with rhinestone toes, lavender satin laces, and the words "Mrs. Erosa," embroidered on the sides in lavender lettering. They were the most elegant converse shoes we have seen! Alaina's picture perfect make-up was done by Belu Salon of Yakima.

Alaina and Julian exchanged vows under an arbor arch covered in white, pink, and purple roses. A gazebo with translucent white fabric formed a backdrop behind the archway. It was very beautiful! The guest seating was decorated with white bows, hanging floral pomander balls, and a series of chalkboard signs that displayed the verses from 1 Corinthians 13:4-13.

The wedding party included Alaina's close friends Mandy, Kara, Missy, Julian's friends David, Rich and his brother Ricky. Cute little Lexi and Haily, ages five and four, were sweet and sometimes shy flower girls. Honor was paid to Alaina's late mother and Julian's late father with framed portraits and a sign that read, "In Honor of Those Watching from Heaven, We Love You." 

Big Ern made the reception fun and lively, as they always do!  Rich Sisters Catering provided family and friends with lots of delicious food choices and Junebug's Bakery of Prosser created the wedding cake and hundreds of cupcakes in a variety of flavors. There was dancing late into the night. It was a perfect ending to a perfect day! Congratulations Alaina and Julian!
