Renee smiles all the time. I think from our first meeting, right up to her wedding day and everything in between, I can only recall a few moments when she wasn't smiling. And she has one of those radiant smiles that immediately makes you want to smile. Her wedding day was no exception.
There were several kinks throughout the day, all weddings have kinks, they happen. But some of these kinks could have seriously put a damper in the day. Renee just kept on smiling and didn't let a single thing bother her. It was truly amazing. And Aric just jumped right in and got busy making sure everything was ready to go.
Aric and Renee were married on June 25th at Naches Heights Vineyard. The wedding was intimate, with just family and close friends as guests. The ceremony took place on the front lawn overlooking the vineyard, while the ceremony was on the backside of the house next to the orchard. Their wedding colors were lavender and lemon yellow, which also happened to be what their wedding decor was made of, lavender flowers and the fruit lemon.
Renee wore a beautiful gown with a lace overlay and intricate bead & jewel work and a gorgeous open back. She wore pearl earrings and multiple strand pearl necklace. Her maid of honor, Jamie, wore a single-shouldler, long lavender gown. Aric was in a charcoal grey suit and purple tie, along with his best man Gabe.
Cider and wine were among the spirits served during the reception. There were smiles, laughs and happy tears throughout the wedding. I don't know that I've ever had such a hard time keeping my cool, as I did watching Renee and her Dad dance.
Thank you so much Aric and Renee for allowing me to be part of your special day. I wish you both many years of smiles, laughs and happy tears.
