Jill & Bryn | Indoor Barn Wedding | Mint & Pink | Rainy Wedding Day

We feel like every couple that walks through the door and books a wedding with us becomes our friends. We spend upwards of a year talking, planning, meeting, e-mailing, calling...well you get the point. We get to know each and every couple that sets foot on our grounds and we hit it off amazingly with all of them. When we met Jill and her fiance Bryn for the first time, it was no different. Jill is a BMX Olympic Bronze Medalist and 3 time World Champion Mountain Biker, this couple was right up our alley! Over the course of planning their amazing wedding, we knew their big day was going to be fun filled and perfect no matter what was thrown their way!

Rain on their wedding day threw some curveballs into their plans for an outdoor ceremony, but they knew how much luck a rainy wedding day brought and made the best of it!

Pine River Ranch was a fully operating milk barn in 1944 that brought fresh milk to local loggers, Jill and Bryn's first reveal was in the original milking stalls and we love rustic and original facade of this area. They aren't the first couple to get fantastic first looks shots there!

In between flurries of rain, they traveled onto the wrap around porch in the main house of the bed and breakfast. The red deck and brick walls were the perfect backdrop. 

They were just troopers the entire day and never once did we see the rain put a damper on their party! 

Guests could write their names in chalk on these handmade, one of a kind glasses, and they were gifts for the guests to take home!

The ceremony was moved indoors but Jill's grand entrance was just as breathtaking! There was a beautiful gasp that filled the barn when they walked through the doors.

An absolutely gorgeous ceremony!

Everyone was absolute troopers and Heather and Jon from One Love Photo did NOT stay dry! 

Finally during cocktail hour the rain let up enough for Jill and Bryn to get some amazing outdoor shots!

Let there be PIE! The log round dessert stands showed off the dozens of pies perfectly! Guests loved the variety too!

A perfect photo to capture the perfect end of their wedding night! A moment to stop the moment in time|

Lindsay & Mark | Pine River Ranch Fall Wedding

Today we're traveling back in time to September 12th, 2009 to share the wedding of Mark & Lindsay at Pine River Ranch. It was fun to look back in the archives to share this set of wedding photos and so fun to think that this fall Mark & Lindsay will be celebrating their 5 year anniversary as Mr. & Mrs.
 Aly at La Luz Photography, a Pine River Ranch favorite, photographed this stunning wedding. You may remember La Luz Photography from Dea and Jon's Beautiful Wedding

I just love the gorgeous flowers done by Bloomers in Wenatchee. They were perfect for the time of the year too! The bottom of Lindsay's bouquet was actually a birds nest, you can see it on Aly's blog at La Luz! 
 Even though the sun was high in the sky, the weather was perfect for their September Wedding. Not too hot, but definitely not too cold! They took a brief "dip" in Nason Creek during their couples photo session. 

 The coral has really evolved in the last 5 years! The wildflowers were beautiful then, but it has really changed since Mark and Lindsay's wedding day.

I love this shot of the outdoor ceremony! An absolutely perfect day!

The cake was made by one of the bridesmaids Moms! Guest raved at how delicious it was, and beautiful too!

What a fun trip down memory lane!
