Ellensburg Wedding at St Andrews Catholic Church // Jacqueline + Alexis Martinez

Green and Gold Wedding

Tavis and I photographed this winter wedding on December 9th in Ellensburg. I love Ellensburg because everything is so close in proximity. The salon, Church, photo locations and reception were all just a hop skip and jump away! We did photos outside the church, at the Japanese Garden on the CWU campus and also in downtown Ellensburg with some of the cool architecture. The happy couple, Jacqueline and Alex, were such great people to spend the day alongside. These two were clearly meant to be together!

The reception was held at the Elks Ballroom. This is a building I have passed by a million times, but never gone inside. It was absolutely beautiful inside! Made for the perfect reception spot, lit by candles and the twinkling Christmas tree lights. Salmon was part of the dinner, which was perfect for this couple because they both work in Alaska in the salmon industry!

Jacqueline's family is so warm and welcoming. There was so much smiling, laughter and happy tears all day long. We have photographed part of this extended family before at other weddings so it was fun reconnecting with them again.

One of my favorite parts of the day was the speech by the best man and matron of honor. Both were hilarious! I also LOVED the bridesmaids dresses. I have photographed a LOT of bridesmaids before and I have never seen any like sparkly sequence! SO pretty for a winter wedding. The bridesmaids were troopers for taking photos out in the cold with us before the ceremony. Although we never had a full on snowfall, there were tiny snowflakes that would fall every once in a while, making everything feel a little extra magical.

Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Martinez!

Yakima Wedding at Cascade Garden // Stacy + Brock

Tavis and Amy photographed this wedding on October 28th at Cascade Garden in Yakima. The Bride and Groom were truly a match meant to be. This day was the essence of fall elegance and beauty. The Bride, Stacy, had always dreamed of having a fall wedding and she was blessed with the loveliest of days. All of the outdoor fall color was in full swing and there were leaves falling around us as we went around for photos. Stacy's vision for the wedding was executed perfectly. Seeing how she integrated both rose gold and fall color into the decorations was a fall wedding dream come true!

A moment throughout the day that stood out to us was the special family session with just the Bride, Groom and their two daughters. Madeline, age 8, and Emily, age 5, were the most delightful little girls. What a special family to capture! Thank you for letting us photograph your beautiful day, Stacy and Brock! Congratulations!

Ellensburg Wedding at McIntosh Ranch // Bevin + Mick

Keith and Sasha photographed this western themed wedding on October 21st at McIntosh Ranch in Ellensburg. The venue was perfect for this! Bevin and Mick were such a wonderful couple to spend the day alongside. Mick works as an estimator, and Bevin is a kindergarten teacher. Bevin holds a passion for working out, and it showed as the two danced the night away! They are a very loving couple and compliment one another very nicely.

The family actually built a wood wall to hang portraits of family members who passed away. It was very thoughtful! Mick wore a tie clip his grandfather gave him to wear to his first high school tolo. Their adorable English Bulldog, Bentley, attended the wedding. He was a cutie and very social!

Amy, Seda Jo, Ashley, Emily, Sarah, and Ali were the beautiful bridesmaids standing by Bevin's side as she married her best friend. Cody, Chris, Jake, Jacob, Tait, and Russell made rockin' groomsmen! You could tell the bridal party was all supportive of their friends joining together in marriage. Holly, Bailey, and Shayla looked adorable as the flower girls. Haze was a little stud as the ring bearer!

It was a pleasure photographing this monumental day! Bevin and Mick make a strong, compassionate, and loving couple. Congratulations to the happy couple!

Naches Wedding at American Homestead // Marlene + Rusty Ozanich

Fall Color Wedding

Keith and Sasha photographed this delightful fall wedding on October 14th at American Homestead in Naches. Marlene and Rusty were the two love birds for this special occasion! This couple was very entertaining to spend the day alongside. While we were taking photos together Rusty was being such a hoot. He wanted to get down on one knee and act like he was proposing again for a photo...even though it was their wedding day. He sure knew how to make his bride laugh!

Marlene and Rusty were all about keeping things simple, but FUN. They chose not to have a traditional cake, but instead had a table full of delicious dessert treats. They also didn't do a bouquet or garter toss. Lori Osborn with Blooming Elegance crafted gorgeous bouquets for the ladies!

The best man mentioned Rusty finding someone who is as funny as he is and can keep up with his hilarious one-liners. The bridesmaids were also laughing at Marlene's one-liners. They were cracking up at a list one of the bridesmaids had on her phone with a few one-liners. Just one of the many reasons they were meant to be together!

Cascade Catering made a delicious meal for the evening. Ashleigh Krueger and her team always do a wonderful job! Everyone was on their feet at some point throughout the night joining the Bride and Groom as Good Vibrations played rocking music to dance to! Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Ozanich!
