I’ve had a run recently of being able to photograph the wedding of a service member and it’s been amazing since I really believe they are modern day heroes. I always try to pepper them for stories simply because I’m fascinated with the mindset it takes to do something so selfless. Most of the time, I can’t get much simply because they see it as a duty, not as something to brag about. Of course, I’d never see it as bragging, just as sharing experiences. So when I have the rare occasion of photographing a wedding where the bride and groom both served, I’m almost in too much awe to take pictures.
Fortunately, I was able to push through my admiration and capture some photos of Breanna & Eric’s day. I’ve photographed a lot of happy, emotion-filled weddings. I’ve had some that were equal, but none more so than this one. Laughter and tears permeated every part of the day. What a blessing it was to be a part of.
Arbor Crest, as usual, was a perfect venue. Up on the hill overlooking Spokane, with a flag high in the background, the ceremony was amazing. What a blessing it was to be a part of.
I always love a wedding day that centers on the ceremony. Such was the case with Magaly & David’s wedding day. The longer than average ceremony at St Aloysius Catholic Church on the Gonzaga campus was a great treat for all of the guests who were able to witness a moment that was so very important to the couple. The feelings of love between the couple and their friends and family were so clearly wonderful for everyone.
After the ceremony everyone made their way over to The Davenport Hotel for the rest of the celebration which featured some wonderful Spanish singing (by an uncle and by a fantastic opera singer), fantastic food, and one of the most fantastic parties I’ve been a part of! The dancing was nonstop and completely captured the celebratory feeling of the day!
