Alicia & Jason | Wedding Movie & Photos | Sawyer House | Yakima, WA

Alicia and Jason complement each other like no couple we've seen before: she's loquacious and outgoing, while Jason is quiet. But they share traits as well: they're both kind and think of others before themselves. We love shooting weddings of selfless people! Their venue, the Sawyer House, is listed as being in "Yakima," but some people referred to it as being in Zillah, and even Wapato. Wherever we really were, we were happy to be shooting there! Surrounded by orchard, this venue is perfect for small or large weddings: it never feels too big or too small. And the owners were so accommodating to us! As you can guess, we see all kinds — and they're among our favorites.

Platinum Entertainment provided their usual awesome DJ services. Fiesta Mexican supplied thousands of tortillas for their amazing tacos and burritos. 

Marie & Todd | Yakima Wedding | Capitol Theatre & DeAtley Estate

Marie and Todd had a wonderfully unique wedding in Yakima, Washington. They started their day getting ready at a hotel in downtown Yakima. Next they moved to the Capitol Theatre for portraits — we had the theater to ourselves! To transport the wedding party, they rented the Yakima Trolly to get to the Central Lutheran Church for the ceremony. This was a beautiful church with lots of stained glass and open space.  The bride's father played violin during the ceremony — how sweet! They piled into the trolly again to reach a gigantic private home overlooking most of Yakima — the DeAtley Estate. Many guests embraced the 1920's theme, wearing era hats and dresses. The atmosphere of the location and live music all contributed to the feel of a different era. A truly amazing and memorable wedding!
