Chris and Ileen were referred to me by one of my past clients, Con Schafman of Chalk Market. I love when I get referrals from past clients, it's definitely one of the best compliments when someone is happy with your work and passes your name on to their friends. Plus, when really awesome clients refer someone to me, there's always a great chance that they are going to be really awesome too! This was definitely the case with Chris and Ileen. They had an intimate backyard wedding in Spokane WA. When I first met up with them to hear more about their wedding they expressed how they wanted to keep it simple and more about spending time with their friends and family. The simplicity of this wedding ended up being so gorgeous! We started out with a first look and some portraits in down town Spokane. I LOVE how these turned out! I've wanted to do some bridal photos in down town for so long now.
The back yard where the ceremony and reception were held was gorgeous, the perfect scene for a wedding! There were many different settings for portraits all in one place. I love that all of the details were things that are unique to the couple. They used carrier boxes from their favorite craft beers as center pieces. Each table had a different box filled with flowers and party mix. The cupcakes aren't just your average cakes, they are bundt cakes made by Nothing Bundt Cakes. They had gourmet sandwiches for their dinner made by Brooklyn Deli & Lounge. These sandwiches were AMAZING, I highly recommend them! The bouquet and other flower garnishments were done by the wonderful Caroline Signer Floral Design. Chalk board signs were made by my dear friend Con of Chalk Market.
Chris & Ileen,
Thank you so much for having me capture this special day for you. I loved every minute and every detail. Thank you for trusting my vision for your photos! I love how they turned out so much, definitely some of my all time favorites! I can't wait to see what adventures life takes you on, and I hope you get to cross off all of the bucket list suggestions guests made for you!
Sincerely, Amber Tyler
