Toppenish Wedding at Satus Event Center // Nacona + Lewis Fraser

Cream and Pink Wedding

Tavis and Amy photographed Lewis and Nacona's cream and pink wedding on July 29th at the Satus Event Center in Toppenish. It was evident how important family is to this couple. They have the cutest little one and a half year old boy, Forest. You could see the joy on his face throughout the day!

We have to share this funny moment with you: It was time for the garter removal and toss, so Nacona sat down in a chair and the music came on. Lewis proceeds to do a dance for a good minute and a half, and finally she said, "you're supposed to find the garter" and he genuinely said "oh!". Like he seriously didn't know...he thought it was just a lap dance time or something!! Everyone was rolling with laughter!

Crafts by Jamie Hanson provided stunning floral arrangements. Amy's Bridal fitted Nacona to the perfect gown. Lewis couldn't take his eyes off his beautiful Bride! (I can't repeat the exact phrase when he saw her for the first time... it was good though) :)  Kim's Got Smoke prepared delicious food for the reception. The cake was made by Out of the Oven. It was a gorgeous cake, and tasted just as good!

Spending the day with these two and their families made for a wonderful time. We loved having the opportunity to capture such unique moments! Congratulations Nacona and Lewis!

Lake Morton-Berrydale Wedding at Brookside at Covington // Savannah + Patrik Rojan

Wine and Grey Wedding

Keith and Sasha photographed this wedding on July 22nd at Brookside at Covington in Lake Morton-Berrydale. This day was abounding with love and friendship. Read below about Savannah and Patrik's breathtaking wedding and backstory!

This couple thrives off of one another. Not in an overly attached way...but a way that allows growth and love to overcome all. We wanted to share a fun part of their story we picked up: Savannah and Patrik embarked on a new adventure by selling their vehicles and belongings to move to Prague. They ended up having to move back home, but said it was very difficult to leave, as it was a fun experience together. No shame there! Another fun fact: Patrik is originally from the Czech Republic. He and his mother moved to the United States alone. His father, step mother, and little brother were unable to make it to the wedding from the Czech Republic and were missed dearly.

The Bride and Groom included three Czech traditions as a part of their wedding. Once they were announced as husband and wife at the reception, they had to each pick a cup. One of the cups was full of liquor and the other was just water. Whoever picked the one with liquor would be the drinker and party animal - water cup had to be the DD. The second was breaking a plate, and cleaning it up together as a team. The last tradition had an envelope, and whoever got the money was in charge of finances. In case you were curious - Savannah won all three :)

Krista Herman with Wishes! Wedding & Event Planning beautifully coordinated this wine and grey colored wedding. She seamlessly brought the day together through organization and experience. We loved working with her! Salon Maison styled Savannah's hair, as well as made her look like the perfect Bride with stunning makeup! She looked like a dream as her bridal look was complete by a long sleeved, lace gown from New Beginnings. We can't get enough of the long sleeved dresses!! The Bride wore her grandmothers earrings as her something borrowed. For something new and something blue she wore an anklet her mom bought that was diamond and sapphire. It it always a lovely touch for the Bride to include something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.

The Bride wasn't the only thoughtful one...Patrik came out for the garter toss dressed in a Top Gun outfit to the song "Danger Zone". Following his extravagant entrance he pulled out a Smirnoff ice and chugged the entire thing. It was hilarious! The couple also did a reverse garter toss that brought everyone to laughter.

Cascadia Pizza Co. provided a delicious meal for the reception. I mean who wouldn't want wood fire pizza at their reception?! It was awesome. DK from Pro DJs made sure to keep the attendees entertained as the night went on. Boy, was this a party! They even had Shutter Bus Co come to their wedding and do a photobooth! It was SO cool. Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Rojan! Hope you had fun in Cabo!

Cle Elum Wedding at Ritter Farms // Beth + Ian Gaussoin

Pink and Wisteria Wedding

Rhiann and Haley photographed this charming wedding on July 29th at Ritter Farms in Cle Elum. The happy couple was Beth and Ian. They had been together for 3 1/2 years before this lovely date! Right from the start we knew they were meant to be together. The way he looks at her, and the way she takes care of his every need is truly delightful. After their first look Beth was already fixing his hair; making sure every little detail was set and ready to go. :) Getting to know these two was a treat!

Beth decided to have her sister, Julie, as her maid of honor. Kelsie, her best friend from high school, as well as Mallory and Monica, her best friends from college, joined as the bridesmaids. They all looked beautiful! Ian had his friend, Jordan, as his best man. Luke, Mike, and Cameron stood by his side as the groomsmen. This bridal party was a blast to work with! Gracie (4) and Kourtney (2) were the cutest little flower girls. 18 month Cameron was a stud making his way down the aisle as a ring bearer. During the reception Cameron was dancing with one of the flower girls and it was so cute.... They had everyone saying "awww"!

Alice's Country Rose Floral crafted the most ravishing bouquets. Ritter Farms also catered this occasion! Venue and caterer in one? Perfect! Shirley's Cakes made their wedding cake. As usual the cake looked magnificent and tasted just as good. Jon with Good Vibrations kept the party alive as the night went on! We loved being a part of this monumental day. What a gorgeous Bride and Groom these two made! Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Gaussoin!

Gilbert Cellars Wedding at the Hackett Ranch // Alex + Adam Pence

Coral and Tangerine Wedding

This wedding was so fun and had so many people I knew in attendance to visit with...when I looked at my watch I thought, "Oh wow, it's already time to go?!" That's how I knew it was truly a fun day because I lost all sense of time. Well, except I did keep the photos on time so I wasn't completely lost:) Here are all of the reasons why this wedding was perfect.

  1. Fishing Pole Picture: Adam's parents had quite the inventive photographer in their day apparently... they have a photo framed from their wedding day where his dad has a fishing pole in his mouth and Adam's mom is pulling on the pole. We re-created it without his parents knowing, so it will be great surprise for them!
  2. Guns: There were more guns at this wedding than I've ever seen before. Adam works at The Range...Alex likes guns too. So naturally guns were included into a portion of the bridal party photos. So fun!
  3. Surprise Dance: Choreographed combine mother/son and father/daughter dance. Not even the bridal party knew...the crowd was rolling with laughter. Such a memorable moment!
  4. Fondue Dessert Bar: Need I say more? Yum.
  5. Up for Anything: I'm so happy that the two blonde haired AP's found each other.... They are such a hoot! I literally don't think there is a photo idea I could suggest that they would say no to...
  6. Pond Boat: They got in a BOAT for us. In a pond. A boat that we have never used and had no idea if it would float...luckily it did, and they stayed clean!
  7. "Take My Breath Away": During the reception the groomsmen made a song request for, "Take My Breath Away" - they all huddled around and then on the chorus they busted out in song for the couple at their sweetheart table.
  8. Streaking Incident: All of a sudden during the reception the groom's dad and a groomsmen wore only in their underwear, suspenders and a bow tie. They proceeded to run throughout the reception. Wow!
  9. Special touches: Adam made the bridesmaids hangers, the boutonnieres were bullet casings, they each read a letter to each other right before the first look
  10. The Hackett Ranch: The view, the lavender, the barn. So many great photo ops :)

Congratulations to the new Mr. & Mrs. Pence!! The photos below are some of the highlights of the day. Click HERE to view ALL of the edited wedding images - available 4 weeks after the wedding!
