Christine + Ben || August Wedding at American Homestead

Yakima Wedding Photographers

This may sound cliche, but weddings are just so fun! It's always so exciting to meet the bride and groom, get to know their personalities and how they compliment each other, see how their taste and style comes out in their wedding attire and wedding decorations, meet their families, and stay close to them throughout the wedding, capturing all the special moments of the biggest day of their lives. These are just a few reasons why we here at Memory Montage absolutely LOVE what we do.

Christine and Ben's wedding was no exception! This couple was such a pleasure to work with. The groom, Ben, is charismatic, charming, kind, well-spoken, and very affectionate toward his bride. The beautiful bride Christine is sweet, kind, adorable and very friendly. Their chemistry together was almost unbelievable. I remember being quite impressed when I first met the bride and then met the groom separately. But man, seeing them together was almost explosive! They are so in love and such a perfect match!

During his vows to Christine, Ben recounted the moment he first met Christine. She was working at the Yakima Athletic Club and he had come there to work out. As Ben recounted the story, he shared that he was so captivated by how beautiful she was that he realized his legs were not even moving on the stationary bike! He said, "She was the most gorgeous blond I'd ever seen!"

Toward the end of the ceremony the bride and groom made a toast to each other. Now, you have to understand something...Ben is a huge Greenbay Packers fan, and Christine is a sold out Seahawks fan. Throughout the day there were tons of pokes and teases about whose team was the best, but during the ceremony they raised the glass of their spouse's team, and toasted to each other.

Unique features of this wedding include the little gold cross from her grandma that the bride had sewn onto her bouquet, the bride's brother performed the ceremony, the groom and groomsmen's choreographed dance and song dedicated to the bride during the reception, an acapella solo sung by one of the bridesmaids dedicated to the bride and groom, the fact that the bride was the only girl in her family with four brothers, the football team rivalry, the fact that they had family come to their wedding from 10 different states, the groom's family dancing the Polka at the reception, and the groom's toast to his beautiful bride. It was a great day and the people were so wholesome.

We also had the pleasure of working with American Homestead and even though it was extra smokey that day, it was the perfect setting for portraits. Cascade Catering provided a delicious meal, Blooming Elegance created fabulous floral arrangements, and Kerri's cakes made delicious cupcakes. The bride's dress was from Fashion Corner and the groom's suit was Alfani from Macy's.
