August is a warm time to get married in the Tri-Cities! Melissa and Joe got married on a sunny day at the Stone Ridge Event Center in Pasco. This is an amazing facility hidden away next to the TRAC. It was our first time shooting a wedding there — we loved it. They have a large gazebo with rows of vines behind it. the bridal party stands underneath, ideal for photos of large groups. We were happy to do both photography and cinematography for them. As it gets toward late afternoon and evening, the venue becomes magical — lots of soft lights to provide ambiance. Guests can visit at the tables scattered throughout the lawn or dance under the gazebo. Melissa and Joe had Platinum Entertainment as their DJ, who always does an outstanding job.
A baseball game was wrapping up at the TRAC just about the same time that the wedding ended, so we stuck around and got a few shots of the fireworks going off — what a way to end the night!
