Lachelle and Keith photographed this wedding at Cascade Gardens in Yakima, WA. Amanda and Douglas were so cute. It was evident that they had a close friendship and lasting love and that they were both close with their families. There were several special elements that made this wedding unique and memorable.
As the morning progressed, it was fun to see how the family members engaged with each other. Everyone was joyfully bustling around getting ready for the day. Amanda and Douglas' dog Rugger was the ring bearer for the day and wore his cute purple bow tie like a champ. :) He was a very friendly pooch but he was also a bit camera shy. He would run up to us to say hello, and then, when we would pull out our cameras, he would back away. :) Amanda and her father had a beautiful and emotional first look with each other at the beginning of the day. Amanda is the only daughter out of three brothers. Sincere joy was the "cherry on top" of each moment of the day.
Now, wedding days are momentous in and of themselves...still, there was something that made this wedding even more momentous than others. During the cake cutting, Amanda and Douglas had everyone gather around. They thanked everyone for coming and then they cut three pieces of cake. Douglas held them up saying, "This one is for me, this one is for Amanda, and this one is for the one coming October, 2015!!! We're expecting!!!" WOW! The room erupted with cheers! What a special way to announce a pregnancy!
Staci's Catering provided a delicious reception meal and the celebration continued with dancing into the night. Another touching element of the day was the first dances. The bride and groom were absolutely blissful as they danced together. The groom and his mother expressed heartfelt love for each other as they danced, and the bride and her father cried tears of joy and affection during the entire song. Oh yes! And did we mention we had sunshine, wind, rain and hail? It was quite the day!
