I loved heading over the pass for Joe and Teresa’s Brown Family Homestead wedding (it’s one of my favorite venues in WA). It was a wonderful day to spend time in this relaxed, historic feeling place, but even better to see them make memories that will root them to this spot. I loved watching the ease with which they spent their day, including Teresa’s agreement that Joe should trade his wedding suit for a few new fishing poles post-ceremony. Everything came together so well and I just loved celebrating with them!
For their first look, Joe and Teresa headed over to Lake Wenatchee State Park for a few quick photos. The lake was really high, so we had to do the look tucked back under the trees, but it was still a wonderful spot to make photos in front of Emerald Island.
I love when people do things their own way. Instead of cake, Joe and Teresa had pie (homemade pie at that!) for a first treat.
We then ventured up into the sunset to enjoy the last rays of the night before dancing the night away. It was a spectacular setting to enjoy, celebrate and commemorate before they headed off to spend the first night in a treehouse (yes, that’s really an option!)
Thanks again to Joe and Teresa for inviting me into this day. It was a wonderful celebration and I can’t wait to share more images soon.
I also want to give a huge shoutout to the team at Brown Family Homestead for putting together the day, to JMG DJ for keeping everyone dancing and the planning team who just did a fantastic job. Weddings work when so many talented people come together!
