Tracy + Sean | Pine River Ranch Wedding | Leavenworth, WA Wedding Photographers

Friday, August 30th, 2013

We can’t rave enough about how awesome Pine River Ranch is, and how fun it was to be part of Tracy & Sean’s wedding there. Pine River Ranch is definitely one of our new favorite venues, not only in Leavenworth but all over Washington State. I got to meet Tracy & Sean in Chelan and do their engagement session so they hit the ground running on the wedding day. They didn’t even need any warmup time to start taking pictures ūüôā Sean is from Texas and Tracy is from Washington, so there was a great mix of the 2 states. They even had Texas and Washington shaped cookies for all the guests. And of course in the true spirit of Texas they had Country Boys BBQ cater the reception, while enjoying being tucked away in the beautiful Cascade Mountains. And it was GOOOOD! Enough talking, see for yourself…..

Venue: Pine River Ranch

Anna + Matt | Silver Lake Winery | Zillah, WA Wedding

Thursday, June 20th, 2013

After Anna and Matt booked us for their wedding we were surprised to learn that we attended the same church in Yakima before we moved up to Wenatchee. ¬†I recognized Anna but we’d never met. ¬†I guess it’s not too surprising when you go to a church of over 1,000 people. ¬†Even though we’re doing more weddings in the Wenatchee, Lake Chelan and Leavenworth area we still do a lot of our weddings back in Yakima and enjoy the opportunity to go back and visit when we shoot weddings.

Anna & Matt’s wedding was beautiful and we loved how they incorporated pieces of their lives into the decorating. ¬†And of course, we can’t forget to mention their cool and fun demeanor that helped make the day go smoothly. ¬†Every time we’re around them we’re impressed by their kind and genuine personalities. ¬†They’ve been such a pleasure getting to know and we hope to get to know them more over the months and years that follow!

When we plan for weddings in the months before the actual wedding day, we like to ask questions that help us get to know our couples better which is great not only for building relationships but also understanding their tastes and expectations for how their wedding day will play out….

 

We’d love to know more about your wedding plans. ¬†What are you doing to make your wedding special or unique?

”¬†As far as my vision for the wedding, it is simple elegance. Silver Lake Winery is a beautiful place on its own, so we will use a lot of the natural elements for our back drop. My fiance is a farmer & he grows apples hence the granny smith green color. We will have Matts granny smith apples in fish bowls as centerpieces, along with 5×7 photos of us at different places we’ve been to thru out our relationship and small votives. We will also have some tables with a variety of white flowers in vases in place of the apples. We love to dance, so a lot of focus for me has been on the playlist=) I will have bubbles on the chairs for the ceremony and sparklers ready for everyone, for our farewell send off. Along with Christie’s cakes we will also have cheese cake cupcakes. Matts aunt makes them, they are the ones sold at the central washington state fair, so they are pretty amazing! Our guests gifts will be, green and pink m&ms with our names & wedding date on them. We will also have Matts cousin sing during the ceremony “God Gave Me You” while we partake in a “Unity sand ceremony” along with our parents. We are a simple couple who want to celebrate this amazing day with the people we care about and dance the night away!”

What attracted you to us as photographers?

“What I like about your photography is that they don’t look contrived. There is something natural about them as if you weren’t telling people how to stand or what to do. I love “In the moment” photos. I mean group family photos are great for remembering who was there, but when you capture a picture of someone smiling at some one else and it looks like no one else is in the room that’s magical to me.”

 

The time and thought they put into the wedding showed, and we had a great time documenting their special day.  Although we were always on the move documenting the day it felt like we were regular guests because of the great atmosphere.
