Tanner and Summer...a beautiful wedding in Spokane!!


Ali and I photographed Tanner and Summer's wedding a couple of weeks ago.  They were married at Belle Victorian Gardens in Deer Park just a short drive from Spokane.  It's an absolutely beautiful location!  Ali and I always enjoy working in new locations and Spokane turned out to be an amazing place.  When we work in new locations....local or destination, we always arrive early, or check out the place ahead of time and scout the place out to get ideas, make a plan, etc.  We have found that having a plan on a busy wedding day can really help things run a lot smoother.  So, we decided to make a litte vacation out of our trip to Spokane and drive over a few days ahead of time.  My brother and sister in-law live in Spokane so we got to visit them.  It was an especially amazing trip because as it turned out they had a baby just a couple of days before we were set to arrive.  YAY...Ali and I have a brand new little nephew who is absolutely perfect!!  It was so great hanging out with family!

I knew Tanner and Summer would have a one of a kind amazing wedding day and I was not dissapointed!  Summer had the amazing idea of starting pictures at 9:00 in the morning for a 5:00 ceremony.  She and Tanner wanted to be able to take the time to be photgraphed both in the city and at the venue.  It was perfect!  We were able to start pictures in the city, then travel to the venue for more pictures, and we even had a break for lunch.  The entire day was relaxed and smooth sailing.  It was so much FUN, and there is so much variety in the images!!  But I think the best part of Summers plan was that she and Tanner were able to spend so much time together as a couple on their BIG day.  The ceremony was perfect!  I even started to tear up.  The flower girls were so cute in their tutus and converse.  The reception was a grand affair...full of beauty and detail.  A perfect day!

Ali and I first met Tanner and Summer when we photographed their Engagement Session.  We have had such a great time getting to know them.  New friends that feel like old friends are my favorite!!  Tanner and Summer are in LOVE!  It's a love matched only by their love for God.  They are perfect for each other, and we couldn't be happier for them!  We know they are going to have a long and happy life together.
