When Pam and Larry Terpstra, owners of Belle Victorian Gardens, suddenly found themselves with a canceled wedding on their hands this summer, they decided to have a little fun with the newly free Saturday and host a contest to give away a complete wedding to one lucky bride and groom. They partnered with some of the top wedding vendors in the Inland Northwest to create an absolute dream wedding for their contest winners, Samantha Dodd and Tyler Loessin, who couldn’t have been more deserving of this fairytale wedding!

Here is part one of Sammy & Ty’s special day.

Stay tuned for Part Two of this beautiful wedding, coming later in the week!

My 3 favorite moments in any given wedding.  These get me.  Every single time.

1. The moment a groom’s heart melts as he turns to see his beautiful bride for the very first time:

2.  The moment a bride hears her groom pledge to her his undying love and devotion:

3. The moment the newly pronounced husband and wife walk down their wedding aisle, awash with bliss:

This anniversary session I photographed yesterday practically has me speechless.  A canoe, wine, flowers, a plaid blanket perfect for snuggling, and 37 years of love – what could be more romantic??

Sneak peek of part one of Pam and Larry’s 37th anniversary photos!
