Last week I had the pleasure of capturing Claire and Jared’s wedding. They got married at their church, Faith Bible in Spokane. Claire and Jared decided they wanted to have a first look (the only way to do it in my opinion!) and then do all their formal portraits prior to the ceremony. We were wanting to do something fun and different for their pictures, but still close by to the church. We decided to head up the Garland district and look for some shade- with a wedding party totalling 26 people, we needed a large space. I found that space at the Garland Theater. They were gracious enough to allow us to use their parking lot and side of their building. It was absolutely perfect, especially since it was close to 100 degrees while we were out doing the photos and we were at least able to stay in the shade!
Claire was determined to make their sanctuary feel totally different than a typical wedding at the church. I think she succeeded! It was gorgeous and not like any other church wedding I’ve ever seen. From the tulle and lights suspended from the ceiling, to the branch arch way, and the all the soft candles it all created the most romantic ambiance!
After their ceremony I snuck away with the Bride, Groom, and Maid of Honor to steal away a few moments and capture some gorgeous post wedding ceremony portraits. They were a stunning contrast to the urban style portraits we got prior to the ceremony. It is such a fun thing to be able to steal these moments and have another quiet, peaceful moment for the Bride and Groom.
