Cascade Garden Wedding || Kristi + Riley Kull

Yakima Wedding Photographers

Lachelle and Keith photographed this outdoor wedding at the ever popular Cascade Garden in Yakima, Washington. Cascade Garden was in it's summer glory with warm weather and roses in full-bloom.

Kristi wore a beautiful wedding dress from Unforgettable. Her wedding dress had a strapless, sweetheart bodice and a full, flowing, floor length skirt. The dress fit Kristi perfectly and she looked exquisite. She wore her hair in an intricate half-up and half-down style that featured long, blond curls. She added a little studded sparkle to her classic wedding look by wearing white satin pumps with silk flowers and heels decorated with shiny silver spikes. Her wedding colors were royal blue, grey, and yellow. Her bridesmaids wore royal blue dresses with individual styles from Lin Paul's. The ladies added bright yellow shoes to their ensemble for a punch of color. Kristi's bridesmaids included Riley's daughter Chelsea, her daughter Victoria, and her sisters Kali and Kelsi.

Riley dressed to impress his bride by wearing an all white tux with white patent-leather shoes. His groomsmen wore grey suits with bright yellow ties. Riley's groomsmen included his friends Henery, and Bronson, his brother Shannon, and friends Jesse, Jamie, and step-son Efrain.

Meaningful heirloom jewelry was an important element of Kristi and Riley's wedding. Each piece of jewelry had it's own story of love, dreams, and accomplishments. What is even more special, is when a piece is handed down to the next generation and the story is continued. Kristi placed her mother's pearls in her wedding bouquet to add sheen and sentiment. During the ceremony the bride and groom used special rings. When Riley's grandfather passed away, his grandmother lovingly gathered all her jewelry and had all of the diamonds redesigned into a new ring. She then gave the ring to Riley so that he could present it to his future wife. He gave the ring to Kristi when he proposed to her. During the ceremony, Riley placed his grandmother's ring on Kristi's finger and she placed his grandfather's ring on his finger. Riley's father, Pete Kull, officiated the ceremony and sang a special song for the couple.

White, blue and yellow were used to decorate the wedding cake designed by Christie's Cakes, which was so beautiful. We also loved the use of a map at the guest table. The bride and groom had a road trip planned for their honeymoon, so what better way to get travel tips and marriage advice than to have a map on display for family and friends to sign. The map detailed Kristi and Riley's honeymoon route and had a sign encouraging guests to leave them tips for places to go and see, and marriage advice. Their guests loved it and were happy to oblige. The map will make a great conversation piece and reminder of their trip when framed and displayed in their home.

Kristi and Riley had been in the bridal party of a couple we photographed last year. Now it was Shannon and Curtis's turn to be in Kristi and Riley's bridal party. How fun it was to see everyone together again! Kristi was a charismatic bride, with such a huge personality. She was the life of the party and has an enormous capacity to love and include people. Riley is kind, supportive and they are perfect together. They've been together ten years and were so excited to become Mr. and Mrs.

Kristi and Riley received many well wishes and toasts that were sentimental and funny. The reception was full of lively laughter, food, drink, and lots and lots of dancing! The night ended with a glow-light send off. Congratulations Kristi and Riley!
