Yakima Wedding at Cascade Garden // Kristin + Christopher

Deep lavender, Sage, and Wheat Wedding

Rhiann and Haley photographed this wedding on August 24th at Cascade Garden in Yakima. The gorgeous day was centered around Kristin and Christopher. Their family and friends joined together in celebration of the two becoming one. After dating for 8 years, everyone seemed to be very supportive of this day! They currently reside in the sunny state of California, but both grew up in Washington. It's always interesting to see how different couples work together. Kristin was pretty relaxed throughout the day, and Christopher was just full of energy! A great team of balancing each other out :)

There were a few details that stood out!
  • A unique guest signing idea - They had puzzle pieces for the guests to sign instead of a book!
  • The cutest cake award goes to these two. They took it to the next level...a macaroon tower. Artfetti Cakes designed it beautifully, and it tasted just as good.
  • Kristin's dress wasn't your traditional wedding dress. She bought it from BHLDN by Anthropologie. It matched her hair and skin tone so well! I mean, check out those bridal portraits!
  • The earrings she wore belong to her great grandmother, and the handkerchief around her bouquet belonged to her grandfather. 
We loved capturing this day for Kristin and Christopher!

Union Gap Wedding at Spring Creek Homestead // Hayden + Nicholas Cuillier

Purple and Gray Wedding

Tavis and I photographed the beautiful marriage between Hayden and Nick at Spring Creek Homestead on September 2nd. We have known Hayden since she was young.... making this an extra special day to capture. Spring Creek Homestead has a perk about September weddings - there is a corn field for pictures! So we had a fun time escaping into the corn :)

Hayden and Nick's families are full of great people. Everyone was so supportive of the two! Fashion Corner fit Hayden to the perfect dress. Studio 16 Salon styled her hair in such an elegant way. She looked stunning! Photographing this day for Hayden and Nick was extraordinary. Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Cuillier!

Yakima Wedding at Cascade Garden // Kelsey + Dennis Culpepper

Cream, Rose Gold, and Mint Green Wedding

Tavis and Amy photographed this wedding on August 16th at Cascade Garden. Kelsey and Dennis reside on the west side of Washington, so this was a fun "destination wedding" for the two love birds! The Bride and Groom met while attending Cornish College of the Arts. They lived one door down from each other in the dorms. Kelsey works at Little Hands Creations, while Dennis works at Artswest as Technical Direction; making them a perfect team as they both are heavily involved in the theatrical world.

Kelsey's job requires a skilled hand at sewing. It was fascinating to see all of the handmade details throughout the wedding! Including the groomsmen ties and pocket squares. She even added beads to the shoulders on her dress from Dolce Blue. A very lovely touch! You may notice a cute pup prancing around the wedding. The couple found Beezus on during their senior year of college, and she has been well loved ever since :) Naturally, she was included in the bridal party!

Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Culpepper!

Zillah Wedding at Maison de Padgett Winery // Christine + Jacobo Rivero

Mauve, Navy, and Ivory Wedding

Keith and Cloey photographed this wedding on August 18th at Maison de Padgett Winery. In case you didn't catch the significance of the date...8/18/18. Just a little touch this Bride had in mind! Christine and Jacobo have been together for the past 5 years. The way they daze off into each other's eyes is truly special. In fact, it's so special that Jacobo took it upon himself to propose not once, but twice! The first time was on a hot air balloon. Dreamy, right? The second time took place at their work (they both work in the hospital together), where he paged Christine. Jacobo included all the nurses and staff for this one. She said she had no clue what was to come...turned out he was the "patient" waiting to be seen. If you notice the blue band in her wedding ring that is the "I'm too in love with you to keep waiting - let's finally get married" ring from his second proposal :)

The Bride and Groom were full of surprises for each other throughout the day. Jacobo surprised Christine with earrings the morning of the wedding. Christine surprised him later during toasts. It's always been on Jacobo's bucket list to go skydiving, so she made it happen; with a printed certificate she presented he was so thrilled! Christine had endless stories of Jacobo constantly showing his love for her through adorable actions. He took it upon himself to choose all the music for the day. Christine didn't even know what song she was walking down the aisle to! That takes trust from the Bride! Zack and Cylee, her kids, walked their mom down the aisle creating a very special moment. Between the Bride and Groom they have 8 kids joining together as a family!

The bridesmaids were gifted personalized stemless wine glasses, and the groomsmen had Moscow mule mugs with their names on the cup. Cheers! British Girl Treats provided delicious chocolate fountains along with yummy treats to dip. She even had sugared grapes...yum! After everyone was full from Tacos El Rey and their amazing tacos, plus yummy dessert, the dance floor opened! Rhythm Dance Productions was SO much fun to work with throughout the night. They were involved and ready for anything thrown their way!

We loved capturing this lovely day. Congratulations Jacobo and Christine!
