What do you get when you combine the classic elegance of a black-and-white color scheme with bright spring florals and gold and geometric accents? Wedding magic. And with her magic wand (a.k.a. camera), Park Road Photography captured every last bit of pretty from the graphic tablescapes and the lush peony, ranunculus and anemone bouquets to the bold menus and soft lace dress. More magic here.

From Park Road Photography…The special moment between spring and summer, when the barrenness of winter suddenly disappears and nature explodes into color. It’s my favorite time of year, bursting with light and promise, delicacy and strength.
“Soft yet strong” was the inspiration behind this wedding editorial at Riverside Event Center in Spokane, Washington. We loved combining the delicacy of hand-lettered invitations and menus (not to mention a gorgeous lace gown by Claire La Faye) with the strength and sophistication of black and white—the softness of pastel florals with the boldness of bright peonies and lilacs. Gold and geometric accents enhanced the overall feel of the session and paired perfectly with the soft yet strong beauty of the historic venue. Shot in both digital and film, I wanted to capture the essence of nature’s finest hues.

These two will make you soooo happy. They have these smiles that can only be described as contagious, and a love for each other that is palpable. You can see it in every last beautiful moment captured by Your Day Films, and on the faces of their amazing friends and family who gathered to celebrate their union. Get lost in their gorgeous wedding film, and then stay tuned for their sweet love story below.
From The Bride… My wedding was even more than we had hoped it could be. You always imagine it perfect, but you know despite all the planning, something can always go wrong. Our day was perfect. We were blessed beyond measure. The day of the wedding was perfect. David and Holly were very professional and worked with our photographer as a team. Our family and friends still comment about how contagious their smiles are and how much of a joy they were to be around. We were able to show our video at our Nebraska reception two weeks later and there were very few dry eyes in the crowd. It is perfect. They captured our special day so completely. We love our video and we love them!
From Your Day Films…When cowboy meets cowgirl, it’s a match made in heaven. Tiffany and Devyn are so cute together we can hardly stand it. After meeting each other online via the site WesternMatch.com, their relationship began first by email, then over the phone, and finally in person, when Devyn flew to Spokane to meet Tiffany face-to-face for the first time.
Their wedding day was filled with personalized touches, DIY centerpieces (and so much more!), and most importantly, two families coming together to celebrate the beginning of the next great chapter in the lives of their children. In addition to their big day, we also had the amazing opportunity to meet with Tiffany and Devyn during the week ahead, and sat down with them on the tailgate of Tiffany’s uncle’s classic Chevy pickup so that they could share their adorable love story.
