Chia-Chen and Joseph had a beautiful backyard wedding ceremony hosted by Joseph’s family in Thorp, WA. Joseph’s father strategically directed guests to the wedding site and parking with his collection of old VW buses. The couple gathered friends and family from near and far to attend their wedding ceremony and reception on the banks of the Yakima River, shaded by large cottonwood trees. I enjoyed Chia-Chen and Joseph’s gentle personalities and their playfulness with one another. They had fun being goofy together but were also serious about their ceremony and commitment to one another. A small, intimate ceremony was followed by a casual reception. At the end of the reception, guests showered the newlyweds with rice as they sent them off on their honeymoon.
