Lions Gate Wedding Chapel

Megan & Tracy | Kennewick Wedding | Lions Gate Wedding Chapel

We shot Megan and Tracy's engagement photos a couple years ago, so it was great to capture their wedding again even after so long. They got married on an absolutely beautiful October day — the weather couldn't have been more perfect. Their ceremony and reception were at LionsGate Wedding Chapel in Kennewick. This was the first time we had a wedding there; it is a charming little chapel with a unique vintage feel, complete with a suit of armor in the corner! For portraits, they rented one of the vintage limos from Four Star Limos, and we had a lot of fun with it. Megan chose a unique theme for her wedding and did an amazing job incorporating all of the details. The theme was locks and keys, she had antique keys everywhere in the decorations, on the tables and hanging from the centerpieces. The couple was married by Stacy from Uniquely I Do, who did an great job keeping it simple while personalizing it for them. During the ceremony, they inserted letters written to each other into a locked box, to be opened and read on their first anniversary. Her invitations were old books, hollowed out and filled with information about the wedding. And instead of a signing book, they had quilt pieces for the guests to sign, making for a beautiful and useful keepsake.

The chapel and reception hall were both beautiful — the reception hall was lit up with countless lights.While the bouquet usually goes to a single girl, they gave it to a married woman (based on who had been married the longest) — pretty sweet idea. Everyone had a wonderful time and when the night finally wore down we were more than a little jealous as they headed off to Hawaii. They are such a cute, fun couple with loads of personality. We had a great time shooting their wedding!
