Kathrine & Brad | Wedding Photos & Movie | Stone Ridge, Pasco

It was another hot Tri-Cities wedding, but you wouldn't know it by watching Kathrine & Brad! Volleyball, badminton, and other games were played *on* the wedding day! You have to see the wedding movie to really appreciate how athletic this couple is. (Watch Kathrine throw a football!) Beyond their athleticism, it's clear they have a loving and committed relationship. And better still, their family supports them outwardly.

We see a lot of weddings, so it's fun when couples choose to do something different. Their peacock theme was sure new to us, and we loved it.

We know they'll have many, many years of fun and laughter ahead of them!

Melissa & Kevin Wedding Photos | Stone Ridge Event Center

June in the Tri-Cities is supposed to be sunny, right? Rain threatened every moment of the ceremony! But a little drizzle didn't dampen Melissa & Kevin's spirits. Both the bride and groom appeared to enjoy every moment of their day. Better yet, their kids served as flower girl and ring bearer....both were ridiculously adorable and handled the commotion of a wedding day with aplomb. Despite the occasional rain (and the subsequent scrambles indoors at Stone Ridge Event Center), the day was thoroughly enjoyable. We're sure that Melissa & Kevin will continue as great parents and perfect partners for each other.

Jessica & Dave's Wedding Photos | Stone Ridge Event Center

We were fortunate to shoot Jessica & Dave's wedding, despite the threat of rain! (What is it with the rain these days?!) Talk about characters — Jessica was hilarious throughout the day, and Dave and his groomsmen wore custom-made formal camouflage vests! (They're avid outdoorsmen.) The overcast skies lent us some great light. After their outdoor ceremony at the beautiful Stone Ridge, they partied and held their own. Then we stuck around to take advantage of the fireworks set off after the baseball game nearby. So glad it worked out!

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.

Lauren & Rusty | Richland Wedding | Richland Lutheran Church & Stone Ridge

This September wedding was awesome because the couple was so fun! The ceremony was at Richland Lutheran Church and the reception was at Stone Ridge Event Center.  We never realized how beautiful that church was on the inside, it had some beautiful stained glass windows we had fun with.  Stoneridge was a great place for photos as well, especially in the small vineyard just before sunset. These two were one of the happiest couples all day long, which is so much fun for us!

Melissa & Joe | Pasco Wedding | Stone Ridge Event Center

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!
