Jessica and Everett are good friends of mine, so getting to photograph their beautiful winery estate wedding at Warm Springs Inn was extra, extra special. Winery weddings tend to be a favorite of mine, and this one was no different with the stunning estate, gorgeous gardens and greenery abounding, a warm fall color palette, and a collection of customized details + chic decor. From the moment I arrived to document everyone getting ready up until the moment I left the newlyweds on the dance floor, surrounded by their best friends, every piece of this day was a true reflection of Jessica and Everett’s effortless love for one another.
I met up with Jessica and Everett a while back for their engagement session, and it’s to date one of my favorites. Take a peek at their Edgy Motorcycle Couples Session in Snoqualmie, WA to see more of these two lovely (and ever-so-stylish) human beings!
Jessica spent the morning of her wedding day getting ready alongside a group of her closest friends, looking absolutely breathtaking before she even stepped into her dress. I adore watching the progression of the wedding morning; watching couples spend time with their dearest people as they slowly start to don their looks for the day—and Jessica was a stunner through the whole thing! I’m obsessed with the effortlessly glam bridal style she went for, with a gorgeous updo + loose, face-framing curls, paired with minimalist makeup for a stunning, natural look.
She and her gals + guys paused for a mimosa break once everyone was close to being fully ready, because what would a wedding morning be without a few sparkling glasses of OJ and prosecco being passed around the room? 🥂Meanwhile, Everett and his best friends were spending some time out in the sunshine, playing a game of cornhole while they sipped on their own refreshing drinks, waiting until it was time to get ready. Loved the way these two both did their own thing and chose whatever would make for the most special memories with their loved ones!
A brief moment (or a few) for the exquisite fall color palette that Jessica and Everett chose for their early September wedding; full of vibrant oranges, pale yellows, deep reds, and more greenery than one could ever dream of. They did a spectacular job (with the help of their talented florist, Feathers & Flowers) of keeping their floral arrangements very minimal, choosing only a few warm, rich colors to highlight and elevating the remaining space with lush greenery + pops of clean, white blooms. And with the amount of foliage and vining plants, towering trees, + lavish gardens on the venue property, the floral arrangements only enhanced what was already present in such a natural, seamless way!
Speaking of seamlessly blending their wedding theme with the natural setting of the venue, let’s take a peek at the rest of their day’s details + decor. Winery weddings often come with a bit of a rustic, country feel, thanks to the natural vineyard setting—but what I loved about Warm Springs Inn & Winery is that it elevated that traditional winery setting; the estate has all that inviting Southern charm you’re envisioning, but mixed with just a touch of elegance to create a really romantic, luxurious atmosphere.
Jessica and Everett took advantage of the beautiful property and put together a lovely outdoor cocktail hour + reception, beneath the strings of bistro lights and the towering trees above. Their tables were covered in minimalist white linen, which allowed the dishware, florals, and table decor to be really striking, and to speak for themselves. The pairing of gold charger plates, matte black plates on top, and sage green napkins + gold silverware at each table setting was perfection; a little bit of elegance, a little bit of earthiness, and a whole lot of intentional creative choices. I fell in love with the way they arranged their greenery as soon as I saw the thick vines + leaves draped over every table, with colorful blooms scattered every few inches that really made everything pop!
Warm Springs Inn is located right on the riverfront in Wenatchee, with the most beautiful ceremony site on the water + mountain view backdrop. Jessica and Everett lucked out with a gorgeous, sun-filled day, with an abundance of light shining through the trees + creating a dreamy dappled effect behind the arbor; that bokeh is to die for! The aisle was lined with clear vases, each filled with bold, vibrant summertime flowers to match the asymmetrical floral installation covering the left corner of the wooden arbor. It was incredibly special getting to see these two friends of mine tie the knot and finally make their commitment to one another; I’m in love with their love! And I cannot go without mentioning the stars of the show—their two pups, who were dressed to the nines in their own adorable floral pieces.

The evening that followed was one I know that Jessica, Everett and their guests will not forget anytime soon; from the first sips + bites taken during cocktail hour all the way through until the end of the night, and the very last hugs goodbye. I ventured around the property with the glowing newlyweds for portraits, and luckily for us, there was absolutely no shortage of stunning spots around the estate; truly a photographer’s dream! It helps when you have the most beautiful couple ever in front of your camera, too 😉 Forever in love with winery weddings and the abundance of lavish gardens, well-manicured lawns, and charming ivy-covered buildings.
As day transitioned to night, Jessica and Everett sat at their sweetheart table, listening to stories and speeches told by their most loved people—cue the tears! It was so abundantly clear just how loved these two are by their friends and family, so watching them be celebrated was an incredible joy (and made my job insanely easy). The bride and groom swapped the traditional cake cutting for a moment to feed each other these delicate, delicious mini doughnuts, and then it was onto dancing—which was kicked off by a complete outfit change for Jessica! I’ve been loving this trend and getting to see couples let loose + change into something a little comfier for the last part of the night 💃
The biggest congratulations go out to Jessica and Everett—all my best wishes as you continue into married life together! ✨
