Amy & Colt's Wedding | Anthony's Banquet Center | Richland, WA

This loving couple provided us the opportunity to get footage from so many locations! Richland Parks, Terra Blanca Winery, Meadow Springs Country Club, Anthony's Banquet Center, and a couple amazing houses. In the end, we had over 1,000 camera clips to work with! firefly BLU has exclusive access to a secret winery in Benton City. Because Amy & Colt had us all day, we got to take them there and take advantage of some amazing scenes.

Amy & Colt also had the largest bridal party we've seen in a while — about 30! You really get the sense they're well-loved with so many people supporting them.

After the short ceremony, they partied on at Anthony's. Then lots of dancing, followed by a sparkler-laden exit. It was an unforgettable day, from start to finish.


Brooke & Matt's Wedding Movie & Photos | Kennewick First Methodist & Anthony's Banquet Center

Brooke & Matt had been dating for ages, but what makes them so compelling is that they act like they just started dating! They regularly make each other laugh! Yet it was clear from their sweet ceremony at Kennewick First Methodist that they're serious about their commitment to each other. They threw a delightful party at Anthony's Banquet Center — filled with sentimental speeches, loads of dancing, and evening lighting to die for. We took them out along the river near sunset to take advantage of the insane reds and purples in the clouds. Despite the menacing prospect of rain throughout the day, we ended up with lucky, perfect timing on everything!

We found a couple opportunities to get helicopter footage at their wedding. Check it out in the movie below!

Jeannie & Eli | Richland Wedding | Anthony's

Jeannie & Eli were married at Anthony's Banquet & Event Center last September. The staff there at Anthony's is always great to work with. We love being able to take photos along the river path behind the event center. We played with a new piece of art next door — we had the wedding party on, in it, and around it. The weather wasn't as great as it could have been, but thankfully everything was indoors and able to stay dry until it cleared up during the reception. They had a lot of unique touches; we loved the hairpieces that the girls wore and the colors of the unity sand! But the make-you-cry moment when the bride's daughter walked her down the aisle!

Jamie & Justin | Richland Wedding | Anthony's & Tagaris

This was another great wedding at Anthony's Banquet and Event Center. Jamie and Justin got married in mid-July, on another warm day in the Tri-Cities. Jamie and her bridesmaids all got ready together at Illusions Salon in Pasco, a bunch of gorgeous girls! Jamie had an adorable mermaid style dress! They shared their first look near a gazebo along the river and then took photos around Richland and Tagaris Winery. We had planned to shoot at Howard Amon Park in, but it was jam-packed so we scrambled. We called Tagaris Winery — they graciously let us take photos. We were thankful, and they turned out to be some of our favorite shots!

The flowers were all gorgeous red roses, and even though Jamie looks little she must have serious muscles to carry around that bouquet — it was much heavier than it looked! They had a really impressive cake by Frost Me Sweet, we really enjoyed watching them put it together. After the ceremony, the bridesmaids did some fun shots with us — it was the first time we saw a pyramid or the bride being held up by the bridesmaids! Just before sunset we pulled the couple out for a few more photos on the path along the river, an amazing time of night for photos and a beautiful sunset.

Maggi & Eric | Richland Wedding | Anthony's & Columbia Point

We were privileged to take both photos and video of Maggi & Eric's wedding day. It was a beautiful, sunny day in June — not too hot, not too cold.  They got ready at the Marriot hotel in Richland — we know it well. We had Eric walk over to Columbia Point Park next to Anthony's to wait for Maggi.  Maggi walked up behind him in her stunning dress. Maggi has the most strikingly beautiful eyes! When we looked at pictures of her with her mother and grandmother later, we saw where she'd gotten them. We took them to the area near Rosy's Ice Cream & Diner. The staff at Rosy's graciously allowed us to film and take photos while they shared a sundae (oh man did we want a bite). Anthony's made for a beautiful ceremony and the couple had such touching vows for each other — we love it when the couple brings real meaning to the ceremony.

Leading up to the ceremony, they'd been folding lots of cranes. Towards the end of the ceremony they folded the one-thousandth crane together in honor of her grandmother. Tear-jerker! What a great day!
