There’s just something about two people in love, and Ryelle and Karst have that special something. Even with a thick fog of smokey haze covering Spokane and Coeur d’Alene, their love sizzles in these wedding photos from Arbor Crest Winery.
It’s been a crazy summer here in the Inland Northwest. After months of stifling heat waves, we were blanketed with a cloud of ash for weeks as the result of so many wildfires in Washington, Idaho, and Montana. The ash seemed to move in and out each day, so I didn’t give it much thought at first, but the day of Karst and Ryelle’s wedding, it moved in and stayed in…and kept coming, and coming, and coming. It was more smoke than I had ever seen, and made the middle of the afternoon seem as dark as early evening. No worries for my bride and groom, though! They took it all in stride, and were the happiest newlyweds there ever were. Even their sweet pup couldn’t keep the grin off his face! This smoking hot couple turned a smoke-filled, grey day into the most romantic day ever, and I love the romantic atmosphere these unique summer wedding photos take on as the result. Arbor Crest Winery has never looked so romantic with these two center stage!
There are certain events of the wedding day that will always be my favorite, and the ceremony itself is one of them. Ryelle and Karst’s ceremony was especially touching, because it was officiated by their close friend and chronicled their relationship from young teenagers to young adulthood. Ryelle said she had wished every birthday for the past seven years that she and Karst would be together forever, and on this day, her wish came true. So sweet! Congratulations to the happy couple, and I can’t wait to see what life brings your way in the coming years.
To Ryelle and Karst’s wonderful wedding team: thank you for making this day incredible!
