Wind Mountain Ranch Wedding
Stevenson, WA (Gorge-ous Weddings)
Elaine and Joel celebrated their Vintage Carnival Styled Wedding at the beautiful Wind Mountain Ranch (Gorge-ous Weddings) on June 20, 2013. As the day began with the gentleman get a clean shave and cut at the amazing Modern Man Barber Shop. The ladies were back at the ranch getting pampered themselves by the girls of Sky Bella Artistry. A nice relaxed morning as we started early and allowed everyone to mingle and take in the breathtaking view of the Gorge from the venue.
Petalos Design brought together the dream that Elaine and Joel shared for this wonderful theme with decor and detail that capture their thoughts. Stephanie and her team worked hard while setting up the carnival games and monster sized balloons at each table and more for this celebration. Artisan Cake Company put together what could simply be one of the most amazing cakes I have seen in a while with a full turning cake top with two elephants on the top. Vintage furniture by Something Borrowed gave guests a nice lounge area outside the tent to relax, mingle and enjoy that fresh air.
A look into this beautiful day celebrated but their loved ones.
Elaine was glowing and excited to marry her love, and her anticipation was timeless. True love she shared for Joel and he shared it right back.A lovely wedding bouquet that celebrated her Fathers life with a small picture that she would carry throughout the day. I love the small details that carry such love and importance in a wedding day. I was truly honored to be a part of their wedding day.First look with Elaine and Joel. Joel was so nervous to face his blushing bride and many times showed emotion of true love. These two and their love story could make anyone choke up as all day they could do nothing but smile and gaze upon each other and the start of their new life together.Balloons, Popcorn and glazed peanuts! Thats how you celebrate a vintage carnival themed Wedding Ceremony!Along side Joel walked their baby Kyro. He is like a child to them and was an important member of this wedding party.Elaine cruised up in her stylish vintage car glowing and smiling ear to ear as she held her bouquet in celebration of her Wedding Day. Look at that beautiful smile, this is what I love about wedding photography, is the emotion and true love morning to night.This was an emotional day and many tears of happiness were shared by the couple and families who know them best.Beautiful cake by Artisan Cake Company. Can it get any better?Lets talk about a crazy pie eating contest to separate this wedding into a whole new tradition as guests laughed and chowed down on mini pies. Laughter rang threw the tent as everyone gathered to watch the handful of guest partake in this madness.A moonlit night to end the wedding day. Clear blue sky and a few night time portraits as this wedding came to an end. I am so happy and thankful that they chose me to capture this beautiful wedding day.
