Who wouldn’t be excited to attend a wedding these days? With all of the awesome details, great venues and delicious food you just can’t lose! Look at that bouquet that our bride made by hand…burlap roses!?!? Get outta here!!! And who could turn down a Barrister Winery Spokane wedding! Melissa and Corey said their “I Do’s” in the most perfect little church in Fairfield, WA where Melissa grew up. The woodworking detail and stained glass were just magnificent. I immediately knew why Corey requested that we take a few wedding pictures inside the church. Once we completed photos inside the church, we headed outside to the middle of the street. I thought the train tracks and old buildings that lay beyond would make a great backdrop and give us a small town feel for our bridal party shots. I have never been to Fairfield, WA before so I was grateful when Corey and Melissa led us a bit away from the church to the perfect spot that overlooked the snow-dusted hills and trees of the valley. To our luck, the sun and clouds worked in perfect harmony just as we were setting up for one of my favorite photos of their wedding day.
Since we had a 45-minute drive to the reception at Barrister Winery we lost all of our daylight, but still wanted to get some more photos at the winery. Time to get creative with the lights! We took about 30-45 minutes to snap a few more dramatic and fun shots of just the bride and groom, and some of the bridal party as well. Then it was time to party! Have you ever been to Barrister Winery? You have to go, and you have to request a quick tour. The building was built in 1904 and still retains many of its original features even after modern and industrial updates. It makes for a perfect Spokane wedding venue. I loved the ambiance that the candles and rustic chandeliers provided, and could tell that Melissa and Corey’s guests were enjoying it as well. The reception was relaxed and gave our bride and groom the opportunity to visit with their dear family and friends; exactly what Melissa and Corey wanted. It was obvious that it was very meaningful to the couple that their guests took the time to help them celebrate their important day.
