Naches Wedding at American Homestead // Beth + CJ Ulmer

Lavender and Purple Wedding

Lachelle and Keith photographed this wedding on June 3rd at the amazing American Homestead in Naches. Right from the start it was clear how family played a major role in both the Bride and Groom's lives. There were tons of people who wanted to be a part of this memorable day. After almost a year long engagement the details were set in place, and the two became one!

The Bride, Beth, found importance in keeping everything very traditional throughout the wedding day.
  1. The couple's first look was as she walked down the aisle
  2. Beth wore an elegant white dress 
  3. She kept her veil on the entire day 
Beth and CJ met through the Dance Syndicate at a swing dance where CJ asked Beth to dance. The maid of honor, Beth's sister, noted it as being "love at first site". After that first dance they of course had to go on a date where they enjoy delicious tacos and coffee. Some may say tacos and coffee don't go well together, but I can promise you Beth and CJ go perfectly together! Seeing the two around each other is a clear example of showing affectionate love towards one another. CJ is such a gentleman, and was there for Beth's every need. 

This wedding day encompassed plenty of laughter! At the end of the ceremony, Beth and CJ turned to walk back up the aisle and had forgotten to kiss...they paused shortly after and Beth whispered, "kiss me"...They then stopped and he gladly lifted her veil, and boy did they kiss! :) 

The wedding colors were lavender and purple. Kameo Flower Shop made sure to bring Beth's vision to life. All the flowers looks absolutely stunning! The reception was catered by Cascade Catering, and the cake was crafted by Christie's CakesEntertainment Plus kept everyone dancing the night away. Towards the end of the reception, the Groom's father busted out cigars for anyone who wanted one! We had such an incredible time capturing this special couple's day. Beth and CJ, your love for each other is so charming. Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Ulmer!

Naches Wedding at Fontaine Estates // Billie + Justin Olson

Gold and Blush Wedding

Tavis and I photographed Justin and Billie's wedding at Fontaine Estates in Naches on June 3rd. SO much fun! Seriously, they had Krispy Kreme donuts as their wedding favors...the day after national doughnut day. Could that have been more perfect?! The Groom also LOVES doughnuts, and I can tell you the guests were very pleased with the delectable favors as well :) The Olsons have been together for 6 years, while engaged for 2 years. Gold and blush were chosen as their wedding colors. Everything looked so radiant! Bella Fiore Floral elegantly crafted the floral arrangements. Kerri's Cake provided a lovely cake table, and Staci's Catering made sure everyone had a full stomach. Billie looked magnificent in her strapless gown from Amy's Bridal.... Justin couldn't take his eyes off his stunning bride! The bridesmaids dresses were purchased from Macy's. They were super cute and flattering on everyone. Good Vibrations hosted this wedding as the DJ. What a great night of dancing it was for those who stuck around!

The bridal party was very entertaining to work with. You may recognize Billie's maid of honor, Sasha (Justin's sister). You would normally see her behind the camera at weddings. However this time she was able to join the bridal party! Paige, Alicia, and Ana were Billie's other gorgeous bridesmaids. We actually photographed Alicia's wedding a few years back and Paige's wedding we are photographing this fall! We love weddings, but seeing familiar faces makes it all the more fun. Billie and Justin, you two make such an amazing couple. We had a fabulous time capturing your monumental day! The photos below are some of the highlights of the day.

Naches Wedding at American Homestead // Sarah + Mark Williams

Grey and Plum Wedding

Lachelle and Keith photographed this wedding on May 13th at American Homestead in Naches. The unpredictable spring weather decided to rain on and off throughout the day, but we pushed through! I think the rain added a romantic feel in some of the photos as the couple drew close to one another. Another upside of the rain is that the clouds create a moody and beautiful background.

For this lovely occasion, American Homestead was decorated in charcoal grey and plum colors. Sarah and Mark met just 16 months ago at a BBQ. He asked for her number and claims to have "swept Sarah off her feet". During Sarah's vows she shared "that really was the truth!" Sarah works as a nurse, and Mark is a police officer. Put the two together, and you have a perfect team! We noticed there were several other nurses and police officers attending the wedding in support of their friends. Mark is known for his generosity, steadiness, and being aware of those in need surrounding him. Sarah is a very genuine friend, as seen by interactions with her bridesmaids, compassionate, and all around a kind woman at heart! Sarah and Mark informed us they love to travel and will be going to Mexico for their honeymoon!

Sarah was simply radiant in her strapless sweetheart neckline and lace wedding dress from Charlotte's Bridal. Her hair was exquisitely done by Alpha Rhythms, with gorgeous makeup put on by Head to Toe Salon. The groom, Mark, looked sharp in his suit from Men's Warehouse. Guests enjoyed a delectable dinner provided by Cascade Catering. Everyone danced the night away with lively music by Good Vibrations. Sarah chose her sister, Micaela, to be her maid of honor. The gorgeous ladies Neila, Christine, Alisha, and Valerie, all friends of Sarah, stood by her side as bridesmaids. Mark's 14 year old son, Trenton, was his best man. We love when couples incorporate their family into the wedding! It makes it all the more special. Mark's groomsmen included his friends Jerrod, Matt, Jason, and Scott.

So funny story, as we were preparing for the bridal party portraits a little situation occurred...one of the groomsmen forgot his pants! Although we were unable to capture the full bridal party right away, the bridesmaids and groomsmen still rocked it. Oh man....those pants :)

Congratulations to this awesome couple!

Naches wedding at Fontaine Estates // Kassie + Casey

Red and Black Wedding

Rhiann and Haley photographed this wedding at Fontaine Estates on May 13th. Throughout the day we were faced with a variety of weather. Including rain, thunder, sun, and wind! Second to the happy couple, weather seemed to be the topic of the day. When erratic weather occurs and we are faced with potentially difficult lighting, we strive to be problem solvers. Paired alongside a fantastic couple the day was absolutely beautiful. No matter the spastic weather!

What we specifically admired about this wedding was Kassie and Casey's natural chemistry together. They had been dating for six years before the big day, so you could say they know each other pretty well! We loved that they chose red and black as their wedding colors. Red is often used as a symbol of love, which these two are full of!

The mother of the bride was not only Kassie's maid of honor, but she was also the caterer, decorator, and planner! She obviously had her hands full on the day of the wedding, but remained calm! We loved that Kassie incorporated her great grandmother's ring into the Something Old, New, Borrowed, and Blue. It is always fun to see what people use as a part of that! Gimli, the Bride and Groom's dog, was the cutest little ring bearer!

Lin-Paul's provided a ravishing gown for Kassie to wear on her memorable day. She looked so remarkable, Casey couldn't take his eyes off her. Francesca's provided the bridesmaids with lovely dresses. Casey was dressed in a suit from Lin-Paul's, as well as his groomsmen. Kameo Flower Shop crafted exquisite floral arrangements. This day was full of laughter, joy, and love. We loved getting to know Kassie and Casey as the day went on. They celebrated their honeymoon in Maui. I guess they wanted to escape the unpredictable spring weather! Congratulations Kassie and Casey!
