If ever there was something that goes well with most weddings, it would be wine. For toasting the bride and groom, to dancing with barrels in the welcoming cellar, to strolling grapevines for the first look, wine and weddings are almost synonymous. With Washington rising in the ranks of renowned wineries, we are more than happy to be visiting the up-and-coming vineyards for wedding days. For the Anderson’s big day, they sure picked a doozy! Swiftwater Cellars all the way over in Cle Elum.
This remarkable venue offers up several wedding locations and a flurry of amenities. Free rehearsal, uniformed staff, and a mobile bar are just a few to get you interested, and they can certainly accommodate a busload of guests. Just after the beginning of the Summer season, we were ready and eager to see the Andersons get married.
Adorable socks, fresh bubbly and a few snacks sped the morning along until the ladies and gents were all dressed. Be sure to watch until the end of the video if you want a good chuckle, it seems like Peter wasn’t too ready for that tequila!
Sporting a navy suit, the groom was flanked by an army of groomsmen in gray attire. Meanwhile, the ladies all rocked lovely pink dresses, which made for some great contrasting shots in the group photos.
A delightful first look overlooking the nearby golf courses saw Lauren and Peter just about bursting with emotion. The excitement and happiness that a wedding day brings is nothing to shy away from, you just have to embrace it! When the rest of the wedding party came out, you better bet the smiles did, too. After all the fun and “cheeses” had ended (at least for the time being) it was finally time to get hitched.
With a backdrop of a sprawling forest, the bride and groom met to be wed underneath a wooden altar. The ground leading up to it was filled with white chairs, and seated in them were loving family and friends. In a blink of the eye, the ceremony was coming to a finish and it was time to hear those magic words, “Peter, you may kiss your bride.” He listened.
After the sealing kiss, we ran off with the newlyweds for some golden hour shots of them along the golf course and surrounding hills. It was not nearly enough time before making our way back to the reception for dinner, cake, and pie! Wine and pie? Yes please! Unforgettable dances, particularly with Lauren and her father, helped burn off the calories. All focus was, as it should be, on the newlyweds. Smiles and laughter made the room come alive, and there was nary a dry eye when Peter and his mom shared their dance.
