I’ve been looking forward to my first wedding of the year at gorgeous Arbor Crest Wine Cellars with great anticipation. Not only is the venue jaw dropping, the couple was amazing.
Since meeting Josh and Ellaina at their Snohomish farm engagement shoot last October, I knew their wedding would be well thought out and full of sweet moments. I mean, these two are just so perfect together! Josh is an obvious gentleman to Ellaina. He’s always looking out for her, snuggling up for the cutest pics, and giving her all the reasons to share her kind smile. It’s no wonder Ellaina’s doe eyes caught Josh’s attention, but even knowing Ellaina for just a short time, I’d say her go-getter, adventure loving, non-frilly personality is really what won him over.
Throughout the speeches from the wedding party you could hear how much fun these two like to have! They share a sense of humor regarding life that is bound to make their marriage full of laughter and good memories.
And if you believe in luck, this marriage is also bound to be of the luckiest since it rained cats and dogs all day long! With record rainfall, this spring Spokane wedding was one for the books. But just look through these pictures and tell me if anyone cared? Nope, not one! I swear no one missed a beat or celebratory moment on this wedding day.
From a photographer’s standpoint, Arbor Crest Wine Cellars has got to be one of the most perfect venues for a rainy day. The grounds look right out of a town somewhere in Europe complete with stone and vine covered archways, lush gardens, and waterway vistas. Just throw a few umbrellas into the mix and anyone would be good to go! Still, Josh and Ellaina took it all in stride and we had a wonderful, low stress time, with a fantastic party.
These two were overwhelmingly celebrated on their wedding day by their WSU fraternity and sorority brothers and sisters. The excitement and fun they had kept a smile cracking on my face all night long. I hope everyone who was there gets to go through Josh and Ellaina’s full reception gallery, because there were definitely a lot of good ones!
To the new Mr. and Mrs. Diederich, thank you for having me there on your special day! I wish you all the sunny day newlywed bliss the rest of summer has to offer you. Especially while you’re in Kauai right now!
