As soon as I met Jeremy and Dave, I knew that I would thoroughly enjoy photographing their wedding.
Their love for each other is immediately obvious—as is how much they care for each other, for their families and for their friends. These two guys have a contagious enthusiasm and are just fun to be around, and it seems like they make friends everywhere they go. This was my first wedding of the season and I can only hope that every other event will be as special as this one.
Jeremy and Dave’s wedding took place at Cave B Estate Winery, a venue in Quincy, Washington, that features stunning views overlooking the Columbia River. Originally, the couple had planned to have their ceremony outside to highlight the property’s gorgeous natural setting, but Jeremy and Dave decided that because of very high winds that day, it would be best to move inside so that guests could be more comfortable.
This on-the-fly decision reflects the true character of people like Jeremy and Dave—they’re willing to do anything for their family and friends. The picture they had in their minds of their wedding day was not going to work out the way they had hoped, but it was more important to them that everyone fully enjoyed the ceremony.
Despite the conditions, we still managed to do the portraits of the grooms outside, which means photos of their special day—with those stunning views in the background—will be preserved forever. My job was easy. Jeremy and Dave’s natural affinity for each other comes across in every shot.
The reception was a blast for everyone involved. Jeremy and Dave brought in a live band, Sway, which kept people moving on the dance floor late into the night with an amazing and energetic playlist. We capped off the evening with a sparkler send-off—a fun ending for a fun couple.
Even with the high winds, I think everyone in attendance can say that this was a wonderful celebration of love that made for a truly special experience. It was a beautiful day from beginning to end, and I wish Jeremy and Dave love and happiness always.
