Erin & Andrew
Of course we love this wedding, for multiple reasons, including the first photo! Dogs in weddings just don’t get old for me. Especially when they are adorned with matching wreathes for their aisle walk. But alas, back to the couple! Erin and Andrew are adorable. They had their wedding at the Sleeping Lady Mountain Resort in Leavensworth, Washington. The location for a June wedding was stunning and the mountains provided a picturesque backdrop for couple photos. For the details, there is nothing better than simple one stem florals in short glass vases. It’s classic, and provides just the right pop of color.
Jennifer & Dave
From the Photographer: “This couple wanted to give their guests a very “Seattle” wedding, since most of them were from out of town. The couple met in Arizona and work moved them to Seattle and they fell in love with the city. They held the wedding and reception on a Argosy Cruise Ship and gave their guests the most amazing view, the Seattle skyline on a warm fall night! They also included a nautical theme with their dessert centerpieces and decor. They danced the night away until we pulled back into port! What a great night!” ~Kaylee Eylander Photography
Hadley and Dale
Hadley and Dale were married this fall at one of Washington’s most exquisite wineries, Cave B Estate and Winery in the Colombia River Valley of Quincy, Washington. With hints of summer still lingering in the cool Washington air, the couple settled on a bright color palette of reds, turquoise and lime greens, to hang onto the last bits of summer and so they could remember that exact feel of the air, forever. When using the stunning Washington mountains as décor, little else is needed, however the outdoorsy couple wanted to bring every element of their beloved state to the inside reception as well, and used succulents and mosses as centerpieces, and created a custom wedding cake with a woodsy feel, donned with a birdsnest, complete with a pair of lovebirds. The bridesmaids wore floor length red flowy dresses, accented with hints of turquoise and paired next to elegantly colorful groomsmen. No ceremony at a vineyard is complete without a salut to the winery, and Dale and Hadley’s wedding was just that, with a toast of Cave B’s very own before their first kiss as a married couple The guests then celebrated into the night under the crisp Washington sky, feeling like summer and this special night would never end. - Clane, Clane Gessel Photography
Lisa & Chris
About the Wedding: This wedding was beautiful! It had a bit of a Buddhist flare to it with their circular ceremony site and incense burning everywhere. It was also a Fall day here in Oregon/Washington so they incorporated dried maple leaves and orange hues into their decor and floral bouquets.
The couple’s names are Lisa and Chris and they are sweethearts. They lost both sets of parents when they both were very young, so this quaint wedding of theirs was very emotional and meaningful. They acknowledged the presence of their now-gone parents and tried to include them even if not in person. I hardly even cry at weddings, as a photographer, but I can tell you right now that I did at this one! – Alice (& Josh), MoscaPhoto
Krista & Brandon
From the Photographer: “This rustic Barn Wedding was at the beautiful Swan’s Trail farm in Snohomish, WA. This is a working farm and is so much fun to shoot. Brandon & Krista are so in love! It was a gorgeous summer day filled with pears, raspberries and hay!” -Kaylee Eylander Photography
