Cassie & Justin got married!| Cashmere Wedding Photographer

Ok, a little disclaimer before we start:  Cassie is family. Cassie is super cool and Cassie just happens to be one of my favorite cousins.  (Her twin sister Cori just happens to be another one of my favorite cousins.)

Anyhoo, let’s get this party started.  This was my first western themed wedding!  Shot on location in Cashmere, WA (think orchards, farms, and lots and lots of cowboy boots.)  The ceremony took place at the Cashmere Museum and Pioneer Village, and the reception took place on the Chelan County Fairgrounds. The whole kit and caboodle was outdoors, and it was a beautiful, hot day.  Hot day.  Like, 106 degrees hot.  A new experience for this photographer!  But the bride and groom handled the blistering heat swimmingly.  There were lots of water bottles on hand, and lots of shenanigans to be had. (Just keep scrolling.)

Oh and he is also hilarious. There were several times during this day that he had everyone laughing and cutting up and joining in the fun.

To be able to be a part of Cassie and Justin’s day meant so much to me.
