Ellensburg Wedding at Kittitas County Fairgrounds Event Center // Whitney + Nick Finley

Vibrant Colored Wedding

Lachelle and Sasha photographed this wedding on July 29th at the Kittitas County Event Center in Ellensburg. Whitney and Nick had been together for 6 years before tying the knot! They met at CWU in an archaeology class and both graduated with degrees in anthropology. Now they both have a masters degree too! The Bride and Groom both love the outdoors, as Whitney is a Restoration Biologist with the Yakama Nation. We had a wonderful time getting to know these two, witness their love for one another shine, and observe as the couple was wrapped in support and endless grace.

When we first asked Whitney what she was looking forward to the most she replied, "the HUSBAND thing." :) After that response it was clear this day was bound to be one for the books. Between her vibrant personality, and their vibrant love for each other, you can bet they had a vibrant colored wedding! Come to find out Whitney is Irish, and Nick is Scottish, which cleared up some distinct outfit choices. Here are a few ways the Bride and Groom incorporated family throughout the day:
  • Nick had his father and brother as his groomsmen. They all wore kilts! 
  • Who says flower girls have to be children?! This couple had their grandmother's walk down the aisle tossing pedals. Paula and Dorothy made the cutest flower girls EVER. It was such a special moment! Paula is a very talented gardener and was Whitney's inspiration in her choice of education and work. 
  • The Groom's mother passed away suddenly several years ago. In remembrance of her, the Bride gave him cuff links that had his mother's ashes in them. 
  • Whitney gave her bridesmaids an Irish heart with a stone from Galway Ireland. 
This couple is so passionate about one another. Getting to know them as the day went on was like gaining friends. They are so sweet together!  Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Finley!
