As an elopement and intimate wedding photographer, every love story I have the privilege of capturing is unique and special. However, Tim and Melissa’s wedding held a certain charm that will forever remain etched in my heart. Their intimate celebration at the picturesque Mountain View Venue on Green Bluff in Spokane, Washington, was a day filled with love, joy, and the warmth of family and friends.
From the moment I met Tim and Melissa, I could see the deep connection they shared. Their love was evident in the way they looked at each other, laughed together, and in the little gestures that spoke volumes about their affection. The story of how they got engaged at Big Barn, a local hangout on Green Bluff, set the stage for their beautiful journey to marriage.
On their big day, the sun shone brightly, casting a golden glow over the lush surroundings of the venue. It was a perfect setting for the couple’s first look, and we couldn’t have asked for a more breathtaking backdrop than the orchards just across the street.
As we captured photos of Melissa’s children on the front porch, a pair of hummingbirds visited us, seemingly adding their blessings to the day.
For Tim and Melissa, family came first, and this sentiment was woven into every aspect of their wedding. The ceremony was an intimate affair, surrounded by their loved ones. Melissa’s son walked her down the aisle, symbolizing the beautiful bond they all shared as a family.
During the heartfelt ceremony, the couple exchanged rings and vows, sealing their promises of love and devotion to each other. They also shared communion, a touching moment of unity that mirrored their desire to build a strong foundation together. It was evident that every element of their wedding was thoughtfully chosen to reflect their values and beliefs.
After the ceremony, the celebrations continued with good food, a delightful cake-cutting ceremony, and the couple’s first dance as husband and wife. Laughter and happiness filled the air as they moved gracefully on the dance floor, their smiles never fading.
As the day drew to a close, nature gifted us with a full rainbow, symbolizing the promise of a bright future ahead for Tim and Melissa. The sunset painted the sky with stunning hues, providing the perfect ending to a truly magical day.
