Naches Wedding at American Homestead // Cortney + Colby White

Teal and Gold Wedding

Hey! Cloey here. On July 14th, Keith and I photographed the charming marriage between Cortney and Colby as they celebrated with their family and friends. American Homestead proved to be the perfect venue for these two, with guests coming from all over. It's so ideal to have the campsite, cabin and bunkhouse for guests to stay at! The Bride and Groom were refreshing to photograph, as a couple that loves Jesus and wanted him to be a main point. One of my favorite moments from the day was before their first look they wanted to have a prayer over them. They stood at a corner on the cabin, held hands without seeing each other, and her twin brother, Kyle, said a prayer. It was such a sweet moment.

Cortney and Colby are the kind of people that are friends with everyone. Even though this was only my second time talking with Cortney, I feel like we are old friends! She is such a peach, and has a heart of gold. It was clear to see both families get along very well :) This is always such a blessing! It really was like the two families were joining together with the Bride and Groom. The Bride's parents, Kim and Paul, were so helpful throughout the day; there for their daughter at her every need! Cortney's great grandfather passed away when she was 16. He had a 1972 olive green truck that her dad got up and running. Kyle drove it over, and we were able to incorporate it into a few portraits!

There was so much detail put into this wedding. Kim had a big part in all of that! She bought a cute little teal couch to use for pictures and they also sat on it during dinner. Colby informed us that the napkin rings were made out of PVC pipe and painted sparkly gold. You would have never guessed! With six years together under their belt, obviously many memories came from that. There were a few prom photos hanging in the reception. Naturally, we had to recreate those during their couple session! My Garden Over Floweth, based out of Paterson, WA, designed the gorgeous bouquets and boutonnieres. They actually grow their own flowers, which is really unique! We went on a little adventure with the Bride and Groom down to the river. Cortney was a total trooper hiking in her wedding dress from The White Dress Bridal Boutique in Portland and Betty Johnson chunky heeled, sparkly, blush shoes!

Guys, this was such a fun group of people. Seriously, during the reception they KILLED it on the dance floor. The bridal party was all about celebrating! The song, "Cotton Eyed Jo" came on, and the guys started taking off their shirts. Everyone was laughing so hard!! Jon with Good Vibrations had the girls and guys do a sing off to "Summer Nights" from Grease. The guys won and he gave them funny hats to wear!

We had such a wonderful time capturing this lovely day for Cortney and Colby. They will be honeymooning in the warm and sunny Florida! Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. White!
