Golden hour. This is the time of day photographers generally encourage their clients to sneak away from the reception for couple shots as the sun sets. It's usually the first time the newlyweds have been alone (plus their photog) since they walked down the aisle. It's intimate, romantic, and oftentimes a little flirty because, hey, we're husband and wife and love that we are married now. For Zabrina and Benjamin, golden hour was the feeling of their entire wedding day. They invited their guests to share in their intimacy, to laugh, cry, and truly have a good time. These guests didn't leave early but ate, drank, and danced well into the night alongside the bride and groom.

Our design inspiration was the natural beauty of the venue, surrounded by the Columbia River gorge, desert grounds, and vineyards. We wanted to embrace and complement our surroundings, so we used used subtle tones reflective of eastern Washington summers, gold and bronze accents, and wooden vineyard chairs. Candles of varying heights, natural-dyed fabric used as table runners, and deckled edge paper with hand lettering by Libby Tipton added to the warm ambiance. Farm tables were also dressed with a mixture of local foliage and vegetation, local fruits, and low, lush garden-influenced arrangements. Romantic with a  modern twist.
