The Perfect Pair- Spokane Wedding Photography

It’s about time I get this post up!  It’s just been a little busy around here, with my roomie Heidi getting married last weekend and my new roomie Nicole moving in.  But things are getting caught up for sure. Thanks to GJA Photography, you can have a look at Heidi’s wedding below and see how elegant and fun the entire wedding was.

I was so blessed to get to go to Spokane for Josh & Nicki’s wedding.  Nicki has been a dear friend for several years and I was excited to get to share this special day with her and Josh.  It was a weekend of fun, starting with her 50’s housewife themed bachelorette party!   I know… fun, right?  It was just so fun to get to hang out with her family and friends all weekend.  Getting to spend that much time together makes the celebration that much more special I think.  The celebration lasts all weekend!

The wedding and reception was at the beautiful Beacon Hill.  What a gorgeous setting!  The entire celebration was supposed to be outside, but with the threat of rain and how cool it had been, they decided to have the reception inside.  But as the guest were dancing, they started to get really hot and all decided at once to move the party outside!  It was such a spontaneous moment and so magical to dance the night away under the stars and overlooking the city lights.

Nicki & Josh Part 1-Spokane Engagement Photography

Nicki has been a dear friend for several years.  I met her at church and I just love the times we would sit for hours and pour out our souls.  So when I found out the I got to shoot her wedding in Spokane I was super excited.

Spokane is beautiful!  I worked at a camp in the Seattle area for a couple of summers and loved it.  I wanted to live there.  Kinda.  But it rains SO much!  Everyone told me that Spokane was totally different.  They don’t get near as much rain as Seattle.  But when I arrived in Spokane for Nicki & Josh’s wedding I thought, “This is the Washington I remember!”  Cool, green and drizzly!

Nicki met Josh when she was in high school.  She thought he was really cute, but, alas, he had a girlfriend.  Josh was a really close friend of Nicki’s cousins so she saw him many times over the years.  Every time, she thought, “There’s that cute guy!”  But every time… he had a girlfriend.  A couple of years ago Nicki saw Josh again at her cousin’s party.  But this time he was single!  They started dating and the rest is history.  Nicki got accepted to medical school and moved to Denver last fall.  Josh moved there a few months later to be near her.  Nicki grew up in Spokane so decided that they would have their wedding there.  What a great weekend!  There’s so much to share, so there will be several posts!

Friday morning was the rehearsal at Beacon Hill.  We had a little pre-wedding shoot scheduled for later that day, but as I scoped out the property for the next day, and I saw what Nicki was wearing, I thought that we needed to grab a few shots in this little wooded area.  She they indulged me!
