Spring Wedding

Ashleigh & Rodney Wedding Trailer | American Homestead on Chinook Pass

It can be painful to make a wedding trailer. Let me explain: we had so much amazing footage from Ashleigh & Rodney's wedding that distilling it into a 3-minute movie means stellar shots sometimes go unused.

This was our first time shooting at American Homestead on Chinook Pass, and we already hope we get to go back. There are loads of shooting opportunities with the open fields and aspen trees around. And D&Z Events did their usual stunning decoration work, providing us many detail shots.

But what really shined at their wedding was the bride and groom. Sure, the ceremony had 30 MPH winds, but you wouldn't know it when watching Ashleigh and Rodney in the ceremony; when this couple looked into each others' eyes at the altar, everyone knew this marriage was built to last.

Michelle & Cody's Wedding | Pasco | Stone Ridge

Michelle & Cody! What a couple. We had tons of fun at Stone Ridge Event Center in Pasco. We started photos a little late (which is wedding par for the course), but everyone was organized enough that we got tons of great photos. Cody did an awesome job spinning Michelle in the vineyard, and Michelle did a great job trusting him and flying free! The ceremony was good fun; sentimental but not overly-dramatic. Each of them looked completely comfortable. The unity sand was great — far too much sand in their individual vials, which we suppose means they'll maintain some individuality.

A few drops of rain threatened to keep everyone indoors, but it quickly cleared up and no one seemed to mind the wind. Counter to what we expected from such a sweet couple, they playfully smashed cake all over each other. Towards the end, as the sun peeked out from behind the clouds, the gorgeous lighting made for some great last-minute photos of Michelle & Cody.

We won't hold it against them for being Cougs.
