Had a great time capturing Josh and LiAnne's special day! It was so full of laughter and we loved getting to documenting all that along with Josh and LiAnne's love for each other. They were just the sweetest. Thank you for allowing us to be part of your big day!
We started the 2018 wedding season with a cozy wedding out in the country-lands of Kahlotus. Greg and Lexi's wedding just had a very homey feel to it and the day was just perfect.
Both Greg and Lexi grew up on wheat farms so it made sense to incorporate that into their big day. They decided to get married in Kahlotus where Lexi grew up. The bride's family did a fine job decorating their shop just for their big day. It was definitely a family effort for everything with help from both families, aunts, coworkers, friends, and cousin's doing their parts.
A lot of wedding details had sentimental value: Their centerpieces and decoration sported wheat from both family farms. Wheat kernels were also used instead of sand for their unity symbol. The altar and cross were from the church Lexi attended as a child that has since closed down. One more! The arch was made by Greg's grandpa and used in both his brother and cousin's weddings.
It turned out to be such a beautiful day which we were all glad for! Can you believe the family and couple pictures where just done on their "backyards"? So cool!
After a sweet ceremony, some delicious food by the bride's cousin and Classy Country Catering, and a sweet sunset couple session, Sight and Sound Services got the party started.
What a great day! Check out the images below!
We had a blast at Taylor & Tabatha's big day! It all took place at Grace Baptist Church in Kennewick, WA. Everything looked great! Tabatha's beautiful dress was from Amy's Bridal. The grey suits were a nice match with the dress and bridesmaids' colors. Their day was full of laughter, silliness, and just lots of emotion. You'll see all that in the photos below!
Funny moment: Best man pretend looses ring right before the ring exchange. You can imagine the reactions! It was hilarious as he pulls out the actual rings from his pocket. Thanks for that!
The fun didn't stop there and that just made the day fly by way too fast! We really enjoyed celebrating with these two! Thank you once again, Mr. & Mrs. Pemberton!
What a fun day this was! I had met Isaac at Best Buy some years back as we both worked there. Next thing you know (several years later), I get asked to photograph their special day. Of course I said yes!
Isaac & Yami started off the day cozy by getting ready "in-home". We then moved down to Faith Assembly Church (my own home church) for the wedding party and family portraits as that was an easy to find and close location for all of us. Blankspace was their ceremony venue of choice for a small and intimate ceremony. It was so sweet! Isaac & Yami were just the sweetest.
For the reception, we headed to Isaac & Yami's home church, New Life Church and finished their celebration there. They had yummy Mexican-style food by Fiesta Catering and many fun activities. Namely, one that raised them over $700 in cash on the spot! So they had a boys versus girls competition where guests would bring out cash and the teams competed to find and grab the most cash. What a hoot! In the end, the boys found more money and so the girls had to dance the Macarena as punishment. So fun!
After some delicious cake, it was time to go! Just outside the church, Isaac & Yami had their grand exit. Not sure what happened to the sparklers idea we had mentioned in our planning, but I remember being asked right before if phone flashes would work for this exit. I had never even thought of this, but I knew we could make it work! So, we did just that! Everyone then lined up and turned on their phone flashes and BOOM. Magic. It totally worked out great!
So happy for my friends! Congrats, Isaac & Yami!
Special thanks to Esther for second shooting for me!
