Kirsti and Gavin had such a beautiful, elegant and glamorous dinner party wedding in Pasco, Washington, and I am so excited to share the photos from this super fun evening with you all! I’ve definitely taken a bit of time to get around to this day… so much time, that these two lovers have already started a family of 4! Regardless, this wedding day was so stunning and I could not be more excited to finally be sharing it with you.

Kirsti and Gavin chose to host their wedding at The Moore Mansion, in Eastern Washington in July of 2018. I had never been to this venue before, but it definitely blew my mind. I was so happy to be back in Eastern Washington as well! I spent 5 years living there, and it was a really good feeling to be back, it will always have a special place in my heart! The mansion was so pretty, and I couldn’t get enough of all the classy, elegant details throughout this day.

After piling into the coolest limo, Kirsti spent her morning getting all glammed up with her best friends. I was absolutely obsessed with her bridesmaids dresses! They were so classy and sleek, and every single one of them looked amazing… like seriously, they all looked like an ad in a magazine or something. Kirsti’s dress looked like it was made for her, and she had the bridal glow going on all day long.

Kirsti and Gavin chose to share a few intimate moments with each other before the ceremony, to connect one on one. It was such a sweet and meaningful moment! It can be so easy to get caught up in a busy wedding day, so I loved that they took a moment to slow down and take it all in with each other before becoming husband and wife.

These two had an epic, classy wedding on the steps of the Moore Mansion. The love between them was so special, and they shared the sweetest vows with each other. Also, we HAVE to talk about Kirsti’s bouquet because it was so incredibly gorgeous! I loved how she chose to incorporate blue and green flowers into her seriously huge bouquet. It was definitely one of the prettiest ones I have seen in my career as a wedding photographer!

After their ceremony, the couple ran off to sign their marriage license and soak in their new titles of Mr. and Mrs! Their reception and dining area was drop dead. Also, I may have been a bit obsessed with their donut wall! Throughout their entire dinner, every single guest was smiling from ear to ear. The energy during their day was so heartfelt and genuine and you could tell that every single person was so supportive! Kirsti and Gavin both went to WSU for college, and every single person was cracking up when the Butch the cougar mascot from WSU showed up to spend the evening celebrating with them.

As the sun began to set, I followed behind these two lovebirds and we captured some amazing, golden photos. Kirtsi and Gavin are such a stunning couple, and they could not keep their hands off of each other! I had such a fun time capturing these memories for them, and taking some time to soak up all those wedding day butterflies.

As the night continued, Kirsti and Gavin had a pretty awesome reception. Trust me when I say… these two and their guests definitely know how to party! Every single person was getting crazy on the dance floor, and having the time of their lives (even Butch) Every single person had such a blast celebrating alongside these two and I left their wedding with the biggest smile on my face!
