First, I did not shot this wedding in the way I did in all my profession work. The bride Wende asked me to knock it off and quit being a wedding photographer! She made sure that I was drinking, eating, and having great time! So before you go through all the images from the wedding, understand that most of the time I was laughing my head off or with mouth fill full with food, and totally unprofessional.  Secondly, Wende was very unique, so it was very hard to get her to behave like a regular bride.

You know sometimes when you meet and get to know someone so incredible, and you just feel so amazed by that person. Wende, is like that. I have been working-out with Wende for three years. From a stranger to a friend to one of an awesome group women who workout together daliy and support each other–all because of Wende. She is sincere, compassionate, giving, trustworthy and strong. I am just honored to be there to cerebrated this heart warming event.  Thank you Wende, we LOVE you and thank you for being an inspiration every day of our lives. Cheers to the many many many happy days to come for you and Mark.

Lindsy & Phil at Davenport Hotel

Wedding: St Aloysius

Reception & Catering: Davenport Hotel

Florist: Lilly of the Valley

Hair: Monica from Fringe Salon

Make Up: Shasta Hankins

Photo Booth: Flat 4 photography

Wedding Dress: Marcellas Bridal

Phil and I met at the hospital when I was just starting my nursing career and he was in his intern year of Family Medicine Residency. We were both assigned the same patient in the hospital for about 2 weeks, so naturally we started noticing each other.  Both of us were interested in the other person but were too nervous to do anything about it at first. The patient however, an elderly man who was not so nervous, had an agenda.  Every time I entered the room the patient would casually mention how nice and handsome the doctor was and that I should talk to him.  Little did I know he was doing the same thing to Phil when he entered the room.  So naturally a time came when Phil and I both were in the room together and the patient so innocently mentioned “Did you know Lindsy was a gymnast,” which in turn made me turn beat red and high tail it out of the room as soon as I could. So eventually the patient was discharged from the hospital and Phil and I went along with our business as usual occasionally seeing each other in the halls but nothing more. A week later, however, the patinet was readmitted and assigned to Phil again. Once the patient saw who his Doctor was he immediately asked if he had asked me out yet. Phil contacted me and after our first date we became inseparable and best of friends and have only fallen more in love everyday of our journey together.  Phil proposed to me along the Spokane River where his family was holding up big signs that read ‘Lindsy will you marry me’.  I said yes of course! But don’t worry, we didn’t forget about our angel/matchmaker patient.  He and his wife were able to attend our wedding and meet way too many of our family members and friends.  I never believed it when people told me ‘when you know, you know’, but I am here to say they are right and fairy tales do exist, even right here in Spokane.

Rachael & Andy at Chateau Rive

Our five-month engagement was a whirlwind, and we couldn’t have pulled everything off without the help of so many friends, family members, and our amazing vendors.  With Andy’s military schedule, a lot was up in the air when it came to choosing a date for our wedding.  We had to pick based on the information we knew at the time, knowing that nothing was set in stone with his deployment and training schedule.  We didn’t expect we’d have time to take a honeymoon after and thought that he would either deploy or have to go to the south for training immediately after our wedding.  By the grace of God, the weekend that we picked ended up being perfect timing to not only be able to have the wedding of our dreams, but also to be able to take a 12-day honeymoon afterward.

We wanted our wedding to be a reflection of God’s goodness and grace in our lives in leading us to our wedding day.  We are overwhelmed by His faithfulness to both of us and his mercy toward us.  Our friend, mentor and premarital counselor, Gerry Breshears, flew in from Portland to officiate our wedding alongside my dad.  It has always been a dream of mine to have my dad give the message at my wedding, and to have Dad and Gerry co-officiate was such a gift.

Since I was finishing up my last semester of graduate school and living in Portland when we got engaged, I knew I needed a lot of help if we were going to pull the wedding off in five months.  I was very fortunate that so many amazing vendors were still available by the time we started planning. Alisa Lewis and her assistants Taylor and Emily were a godsend.  They helped me with styling and coordination throughout the planning process, introduced me to several of our vendors, and made it all happen on our wedding day. We would like to thank our parents for the love and support they have given us, and all of the time and effort they put into helping us plan.  Thank you to everyone involved for helping to make our wedding more wonderful than I could have imagined.
