Yakima Wedding // Stephanie + Josh Rein

Burgundy and Rose Gold Wedding

Keith and Sasha photographed Stephanie and Josh's wedding on September 23rd. The ceremony took place at St. Paul Cathedral with the reception held outside at the beautiful Cascade Garden. Josh admitted to having a crush on Stephanie since they were freshman in high school. He was thrilled when she finally agreed to go out with him years later! As we celebrated their decision to come together as one, it was a blast getting to know these two!

Let's start with the fact that they had two hours of unlimited tacos at the reception. Best choice ever! If you are looking for some delicious food...El Conquistador is the place! They also had the most tasty churros! Overall, it was just amazing. 

Belu Salon styled Stephanie's hair and makeup. She looked absolutely stunning! When she put on her wedding dress from Fashion Corner her entire bridal look came together. We loved the details put into the Bride's bouquet crafted at Blooming Elegance. The wedding colors, burgundy and rose gold, tied in perfectly throughout the day. 

Spending the day with Stephanie and Josh was a blast. Their love for one another shines. We wish them many years of wedded bliss! Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Rein!

Seattle Wedding // Kathleen + Christian Cardenas

Teal and Peach Wedding

Rhiann and Haley photographed this teal and peach wedding in Seattle on September 23rd with the ceremony held at Holy Names Academy and the reception at Sandpoint Country Club. The chapel was inside a private school that both the Bride and her mother graduated from. Kathleen and Christian met at a singles Catholic group in California. Now look where they are! Join us as we reflect on this cheerful day.

We love getting to know the Bride and Groom on a more personal level as we prepare for their wedding and photograph it. The more they share with us the better! The Groom plays and manages a baseball club. These two really love sports! When we found this out, the baseball undertones throughout the day seemed to stand out more clearly to us. We knew they would want us to capture all the thought out details! Here are a few:
  • Baseballs were incorporated into the table centerpieces.
  • The couple did a first pitch as their entrance for the reception.
  • The priest kept the ceremony entertaining as he tried to add in a biblical baseball analogy. He proclaimed that the Bible says, "In the big inning" instead of "In the beginning". It worked...everyone was chuckling!
This couple was all about making their day unique and representative of them. KuKuRuza Gourmet Popcorn provided delicious popcorn for the guests, versus cake. Don't worry - They had a small cake made by one of her bridesmaids to do the official cake cutting. Kathleen was dressed in a sensational gown from Unveiled Bridal. The combination of her makeup and hair done by Kat Green of Kat Green Makeuplove with her dress was excellent. Her sister sang during the reception and sounded amazing. It was as if we were listening to a Broadway performance! 

The night began with the couple's first dance to "Sugar, Sugar" by The Archies. The song choice fit them perfectly. Sounds Unlimited was an engaging DJ and really knew how to get the crowd up and dancing! It was also enjoyable having Seattle Party Shots there so the guests could strike their poses for the photo booth. Photographing these two love birds truly made for a  magnificent day! We are so happy for Mr. and Mrs. Cardenas!

Naches Wedding at Fontaine Estates // Erica + Kyle Dorais

Burgandy and Navy Wedding

Tavis and Amy photographed this Disney inspired wedding on September 23rd at Fontaine Estates Winery. Erica and Kyle were a joy to spend the day photographing. We photographed their engagement session a couple years ago, and were thrilled to see them join together in marriage. This time we got to photograph their son as well! The Disney inspired wedding details was led by their engagement taking place is Disneyland! Isn't that dreamy?!

Who doesn't love Disney? It was evident Erica was a fan herself :) Here are some ways she incorporated Disney into the day very tastefully:
  • Erica wore a gorgeous strapless full ball gown from Amy's Bridal Boutique
  • She also had gold glitter covered Kate Spade heels.
  • The music played during the ceremony was classical or remixed versions of Disney songs.
  • Disney's "Up" film influenced the grape soda pins & cake utencils
  • A Disney themed cake and cake topper including hidden Mickey's on the cake. Courtesy of Frost Me Sweet
  • She brought her sparkly Minnie ears as a prop.
  • Toy Story reference: A board through the entrance said "To Dorais and beyond". - as well as the ring bearer signs
  • The centerpieces had a mix of Cinderella carriages, Beauty and the Beast roses and Snow White red apples.
Getting these two to have an enjoyable time was no challenge at all. We had fun laughing with the couple all day! When we were photographing them together he was whispering in her ear sweet nothings...that ended up being an animal sound. That sure made Erica smile! Also, when he tried to give her a piggy back ride he may have fallen backwards...with her on his back. Thankfully no one was injured! The only thing we suffered from was non-stop giggles and jokes about it :)

Erica and Kyle have the cutest little boy, Arlo. He was a stud! It was clear his parents are overflowing with love for him. Congratulations to the Dorais family!
