It’s so exciting to kick off the heart of the 2017 wedding season! We’re hitting the part of the year where every weekend and a handful of weekdays are taken up with capturing weddings! To borrow the phrase meant for something entirely different, it’s the most wonderful time of the year!
Here’s Nicole & Wayde’s wedding day that started at the ultra-modern Davenport Grand Hotel in downtown Spokane. For the couple, it’s always nice to be able to start the day in a relaxed, pampered atmosphere. For me it’s always nice to start off around beautiful light and great spaces. After Nicole & Wayde saw each other for their big first look, we headed across the river to Chateau Rive for the rest of the day. We also spent a few minuted touring around Riverfront Park and hung out on the bridge with the raging water rushing below us.
So far, 2017 is off to an amazing start!
I was so excited to be able to photograph Kelsey and Andrew’s awesome wedding! I first met Kelsey when she was the maid of honor at her sister’s wedding pretty near the start of my photo career. Of course it was awesome to be able to see so many people I remembered from that day.
They chose to have their wedding at the fantastic Commellini Estate, a private and incredibly unique wedding venue that has a rich history dating back to prohibition. I still have yet to be there to photograph a wedding on a good weather day so I don’t even feel like I’ve scratched the surface of what the property has to offer from a photography standpoint, but I don’t even feel like that matters, because what I have been able to photograph there is just perfect!
Now, on to the smiles, laughter, family, friends, tears, dancing, partying, and photos!
