Lauren and Sunny: Swiftwater Cellars Winter Wedding

Lauren and Sunny had a wonderful winter wedding at Swiftwater Cellars in Cle Elum, WA. Swiftwater Cellars is a warm, cozy place to be, in a beautiful setting, on a winter day. A few of my favorite shots from their wedding day photography may be found below. One of the fun shots we did right before the ceremony was to have the bride and groom stand in the doorways of their dressing rooms surrounded by their wedding party, but so that they could not see each other. They wanted the first time they saw each other to be at the wedding ceremony.

Kimberly and Kellen: Brown Family Homestead Wedding Photography, Lake Wenatchee, Leavenworth

The forecast for Kimberly and Kellen’s wedding day called for 100% chance of rain showers. Kimberly and Kellen had already had a sunny tropical wedding in St. Croix but still wanted to have a ceremony for their friends and family who couldn’t join them. Both Kimberly and Kellen had grown up spending time in the summers at Lake Wenatchee so the Brown Family Homestead seemed like a natural location to celebrate the joining of their two families. The wedding day was very casual, due to the fact that it was a small, intimate group, it was Kimberly and Kellen’s second wedding, and the were very relaxed. Getting ready was more casual than most weddings, with Kellen helping to lace up Kimberly’s dress. Despite heavy rain showers earlier in the day, the rain let up enough to allow an outdoor ceremony and to give us time for family and bridal portraits. The bride and her bridesmaids rode to the ceremony site in her father’s Model A Ford and the guys drove in with a 1967 Camaro. It was a brief but emotional ceremony; the bride and groom didn’t realize how emotional they would feel when repeating their vows for their friends and family. One of the highlights of the evening was being able to sneak off with the bride and groom to a private beach at a family cabin on the shore of Lake Wenatchee to take some beautiful portraits of them sharing a special moment together.
