Ciera and Shawn shared their dream wedding day at Brightside Vintage Farm in Ellensburg, Washington. This was nothing short of a whimsical vintage fairytale. Their day looked like something out of a magical storybook and offered so many picturesque opportunities. This historic farm, in a pristinely kept green valley surrounded by rolling hills, makes a picture-perfect Washington wedding venue. Come enjoy more of this romantic wedding below!
the love story that brought them here
Ciera and Shawn met during their first year of college at WSU. Two of their best friends in greek life were dating and introduced them to each other. From that night, the ship set sail. After a few months of talking & getting to know each other, Shawn made it official. They were inseparable during college and spent as much time together as possible. Shawn graduated in the winter of 2018. He moved back to the Tri-Cities and started working full-time. Then they did a long-distance relationship up until Ciera graduated in May 2020. Although it was difficult, they both were firm believers in "distance makes the heart grow fonder." They did a lot of visiting back and forth. Shawn would visit Ciera in Pullman for as many events as he could. In July 2020, Ciera made the move to the Tri-Cities, and they got their first apartment together. On June 5th, 2021, Shawn popped the big question!
The pilgrims fall dream wedding day
On a warm October day, Ciera and Shawn finally made things official on their dream wedding day. Shawn shed tears during their first look and while watching her walk down the aisle. We followed up their beautiful ceremony with golden hour photos that were to die for. Everything about Ciera was perfect- she was like a goddess. Her hair and lace-detailed dress were incredible. I'm honored that Shawn and Ciera trusted me to capture one of the most intimate times of their lives, and I'm so proud of how everything turned out.
"These turned out amazing and so precious💗 we can’t say thank you enough!!"
