Kai’Lei + Chris Wedding

Kai’Lei and Chris were married at St. Pauls and had their reception at American Homestead. It was a perfect day and Kai’Lei and Chris are so in love! They love taking photos and we had a blast traveling all over the diverse landscapes of American Homestead to get some amazing shots. There were many special moments throughout the day but as always I loved the speeches. It’s always fun to get to know the couple through their friends and family and hear some great stories about their lives. We ended the night with a full moon. Beautiful!

Mindy + Kenny Wedding

Mindy and Kenny were married at American Homestead. I loved the details of this wedding. The antlers in the bride bouquet were a super unique idea and something I’ve never seen before. She also had a special bullet of grandpas ashes in her bouquet, it was a great way to have the memory of grandpa there with her. This time of year the wild sage is blooming yellow flowers so we loved taking bride and groom photos amongst this unique Yakima background. The flower girls looked so very cute in their little yellow tutu’s; I loved the giant flower on the back! The fishing lure cake pops were awesome. Such a great idea.

Sara + Justin Wedding

Sara and Justin were married at American Homestead. We started off the day with some finishing touches at Belu Salon. This salon is one of my favorites, it’s so beautiful and cool inside. I loved the hand made boxes with wood burned JS that they used for center pieces. And the pine cones and pine branches were perfect. The lavender bridal party bouquets were totally unique and smelled fantastic. Everything about this day was perfect and we had a blast photographing it!

Hayley + Brandt Wedding

Hayley and Brandt were married at American Homestead. I loved the flowers from this wedding, Simplified Celebrations does a wonderful job arranging flowers. The bride and groom are cougar fans so they had to incorporate their love of football into the wedding day. Some of my favorite things from the reception were the yummy desert table, the seating chart and the guest book; all fantastic details. We had fun going to “lovers island” for sunset photos. Those pictures are some of my favorite. We finished off the evening with a sparkler exit and the brides brother rocking the star spangled banner. Perfect for the 4th of July weekend!

Rachel + Hunter Wedding

Rachel and Hunter were married at American Homestead. We loved all the detail in this wedding, the lemons in the center pieces, the rocks for people to write advice on and the unique cake topper. One of our favorite times in the day was taking a couple quick photos on “lovers island” during sunset. We wish you the best Rachel and Hunter and we had a wonderful time photographing you guys on your wedding day.

Kelsey + Jordan Wedding

Kelsey & Jordan were married at American Homestead in Naches. Kelsey loves bling so there was no shortage of sparkles at the wedding. She even had two wedding dresses, both of course with lots of bling. I loved the succulents in her bouquet, they were spray painted to match her color scheme. There was a ton of creative thought that went in to every detail of this wedding and it turned out beautifully! We wish you the best Kelsey & Jordan!

Kelli + Ryan Wedding

Kelli & Ryan were married on a perfect beautiful day at American Homestead. I love the plaid button ups the girls were wearing in the morning to get ready. Kelli chose to do a first look with her father before seeing Ryan and it was such a sweet moment.

Some of my favorite moments were the honeymoon reveal, cake cutting and the bubble exit. Ryan had kept the honeymoon location a secret. When it came time for speeches he announced to her that they were going to St Martin for a week. The excitement on her face was priceless.
Earlier in the day I overheard Kelli and Ryan discussing that they were going to be nice during the cake cutting. It was fun to watch them both smash the cake and totally disregard their previous truce with each other.
I think this might be the first time we’ve done a bubble exit at night. I wasn’t sure what it would look like but I actually love the pictures with the bubbles. I plan to highly recommend this to other couples in the future 🙂

Jaclyn + Joe Wedding

This was an awesome wedding at the American Homestead. Both Jaclyn and Joe hold their Masters in mathematics so it was super cool that they included math details into their wedding. We loved the seating chart and guest gifts (calculators). Their day went perfectly and we could tell that Jaclyn, Joe and all their guests were having a blast. We wish you the best Jaclyn and Joe and we are so thankful that you chose us to be your photographers.

Carling + James | American Homestead

We had a great time at this wedding at American Homestead. Carling and James had a crazy weather day. It was beautiful and sunny for all our bride and groom pictures and then out of no where it was pouring rain and super windy. Thankfully they were able to move the ceremony indoors.
The food was great, they had an German themed dinner. After dinner and all the events it was time to dance the night away. Both Carling and James looked like they were having a fabulous time.

Magda + Brandon | American Homestead

What a beautiful wedding at the American Homestead! Magda was stunning in her intricately beaded wedding dress and Brandon was looking quite sharp! We were glad to be able to spend a whole hour with Brandon and Magda taking bride and groom photos. We even did a little light hiking down to the river. They are such a great couple and so totally in love. Thank you for choosing us to photograph your big day and we wish you the best!
