Brown Family Homestead Wedding Photos // Leavenworth, WA // Alexa and Paul

The Couple

This wedding is one of my favorites to date. Alexa and Paul have impeccable taste. They were also game to take the style photos that I love *see below*. When I asked Alexa where she wanted to do the first look, she told me “There’s this old bridge that crosses over the Wenatchee River that I was hoping we could use”…. ummmm Yes Please!

Alexa looked stunning in her lace-up Maggie Sottero wedding dress while Paul was looking pretty debonair himself in his custom suit. Yet they were totally up for climbing onto some rocks for an incredible picture or stomping out into a field full of tall grass, dirt, and who knows what else. All in the name of amazing imagery.

This wedding venue is amazing! Nestled in the mountains above the quant bavarian town of Leavenworth Washington, you are treated to breathtaking mountainous views no matter where you look. The ceremony location has one of the best backdrops you could ask for. Not to mention Alexa being brought to the alter in a white horse drawn carriage. Fairytale worthy? I think so.

The venue also features a bridal cottage, a large tented reception area, dark wood antique tables and chairs, live animals, and a large fire pit that was a big attraction towards the end of the day.

The Day

Such a fun day. The guys and girls had separate condo’s in the heart of Leavenworth. After everyone was ready, we jumped into a stretch limo and watched as the driver somehow maneuvered this giant vehicle around the cramped, tourist-packed streets. Once we were on the highway, we headed out to the bridge for the first look. This bridge used to be used to transport mining carts over the water but now it’s just an old, dilapidated bridge with a ton of character. After getting some of my favorite pictures I’ve ever taken here, we got back to the car, and started the 30 minute or so drive into the mountains to our amazing destination.

I will say that the ceremony is by far the shortest I’ve ever photographed. The entire day was beautiful weather except one little window of rain….the ceremony. Alexa and Paul had already planned a short ceremony but this was cut down even more due to the weather. From the point when Alexa was dropped off at the top of the aisle via horse and carriage, until she was walking back up the aisle with her newly minted husband in hand, a total of 4 minutes and 30 seconds had passed! 🙂 I love it! And you better believe my two camera were working full time during those 270 seconds.

The day was perfectly rounded off with excellent food, toast that brought laughter and tears, and more dancing than I’ve seen at most weddings. I love a wedding where the dance floor gets a workout!
