Suncadia Resort Wedding Photography || Tanya + Josh

Suncadia Wedding Photographers

Tanya and Josh were married at Suncadia Resort in Cle Elum, Washington on August 20th. Suncadia is a premier all-season mountain hotel and condo resort on the sunny eastern slopes of Washington's Cascade mountain range. It lived up to it's sunny name on Tanya and Josh's wedding day! They were blessed with clear skies and warm weather. The views of the surrounding mountains were majestic and the aroma of fresh air and pine trees was invigorating. The views at Suncadia made a perfect ceremony backdrop.

Tanya was stunning in a rhinestone adorned wedding gown from Charlotte’s Weddings in Portland and specially made veil that highlighted her intricate updo hairstyle. Her gown and veil were so amazing and unlike anything we've ever seen. We loved her satin peep-toe pumps with the large satin bow! Her shoes were a bright turquoise to match her wedding colors, and a colorful surprise beneath her formal floor-length gown. This bride loves her sparkle and made sure her bridal bouquet was full of bling. She used white roses and blue calla lilies to form a round bouquet, accenting each rose with pearls and diamond rhinestones. The flower stems were hand-tied with bright turquoise satin ribbon.The bride also wore a new kind of perfume she had never worn before. She wanted to remember her wedding day with a new scent. Make up artist Carin of Corine Potter Cosmetics, and Tanya's step-sister, came from Florida to make sure that the bride glowed on her special day. Kelly Kilpatric of Bella Salon in Yakima, also did a fabulous job with Tanya's hair to make sure looked stunning.

Tanya is bright, charismatic and charming. Josh is kind, fun and honorable. They are so perfect for each other. Tanya was so eager to see Josh, that she had to pause several times before tapping his shoulder during their fist look, because she was fighting back tears of joy. Josh looked handsome in a black tuxedo with his shirt, vest and bow-tie, in white on white. Their first look moment was sentimental and emotional.

The bride's party included Tanya's sister Kristal as maid of honor, her daughter Kailee, and friends Stacey and Rachelle as bridesmaids. The groom's party included Josh's brother Lucas as best man, Tanya's son Tucker, and Josh's friends Todd and Aron as groomsmen. Tanya's youngest daughter Jenessa was her flower girl and her youngest son Kyler was the ring bearer.

When it came time for the ceremony to begin, onlookers from the resort came out onto their balconies to witness the happy celebration and became a second audience to the event. The bridal party walked down the aisle and anticipation grew in the air as guests waited for the bride to appear. Tanya took everyone's breath away with her brilliant smile and sparkled from head to toe in her gown and veil.

Dave Edler of Yakima officiated the ceremony. He provided the couple with sound advice from his life experience as a Major League baseball player and former Yakima Mayor. The ceremony included a duet with guitar accompaniment and a cross sculpture that the the bride and groom joined together. The outer layer of the cross symbolized the groom, the ornate white interior of the cross symbolized the bride, and the two pieces were joined together with three pegs symbolizing the father, son and holy spirit.

An outdoor reception followed the ceremony with music from Sounds Unlimited of Seattle and catering arranged by Suncadia's wedding coordinator Chelsea. Alena's Cake Kiss artfully created a wedding cake that complemented the wedding's decor using cake squares to form a tri-tiered masterpiece covered in white fondant. The cake was decorated with accents of delicate black scroll work and bold sashes of bright blue fondant that swayed back and forth connecting the layers. She included rhinestones like those that Tanya included in her bridal bouquet to "pin" the blue ribbon in place. A black cake topper depicting a silhouette of the couple was underscored by the couple's married name.

The grand finale of the night was a dance where everyone at the reception lit sparklers and formed a large circle around Tanya and Josh as they danced. Congratulations Tanya and Josh!
