Lachelle and Keith photographed this wedding at Sawyer Gardens in Wapato, WA. It was a beautiful day, not too hot, not too windy and everyone's spirits were high. The bride, Shannon, was absolutely beautiful and her groom, Curtis, was nervously excited to see his bride walk down the isle. Throughout the morning, Shannon would try to peek through the window to see if she could see Curtis, and Curtis could hardly wait to see his bride.
Shannon was such a relaxed bride and you could tell that she was joyfully soaking in every moment of the day. She has such a fun and beautiful personality and was the epitome of a "glowing bride." Curtis is attentive, caring and committed.
Some of the best moments of the day revolved around Shannon's sons. Shannon is a very connected mom and her boys adore her! They were excited to have Curtis marry their mom because they knew he would take care of her. Her two sons acted as the best men for the day and did a fantastic job! They were true gentlemen and their toasts were so sweet. They were thoughtful, kind, respectful and genuine. They spoke from their hearts. In general, they were very impressive young men! They were continually telling their mom how beautiful she was and even dedicated songs to her. During the first dances, Shannon had a special dance with her boys. We also coordinated a "first look" with her sons in the beginning of the day. These young men truly cherish their mom.
The entire day was very family centered and the bride and groom welcomed everyone with open arms as if they were welcome them into their family.
During the cake cutting, the energy in the room was ecstatic! There were hoops and hollers and everyone could sense that a cake smash was on the way! The big surprise came though, when the bride and groom cut into the beautiful cake by Kerri's Cakes, and under the white frosting was a green and blue cake! Go Seahawks! Curtis was so surprised and Shannon grinned ear to ear! She had successfully surprised her groom. The night ended with epic dancing and, I have to say, there were a lot of people at this wedding who knew how to move it! :)
