What can we say about this truly magical wedding…Katie and Royeric crafted a wedding that embodied every ounce of their personal style, deep love for one another and the connection they have to their family and friends. Their Bridal Veil Lakes wedding honored both their relationship as well as the Mexican culture that means so much to Royeric and his family.
Bridal Veil Lakes provided the perfect backdrop to the rich colors and vibrant vibe of the wedding. Located just off the historic Columbia Gorge scenic highway and enclosed by a forest of quintessential Pacific Northwest pine trees, a Bridal Veil Lakes wedding is just naturally breathtaking. You hardly need much decor in a venue that stands out all on it’s own. But if you are going to compliment this scenery, I can think of no better way than the bright rainbow of colors that Katie & Royeric brought to the venue. Between the colors, the cake and the attire, you truly felt like you were a part of a celebration of not just a couple, but of a culture that means so much to them.
Katie arrived to the ceremony in a way that simply a must at Bridal Veil. Cruising in on a canoe while Royeric blew her kisses from the ceremony site, it was a sight to be seen. It also involved some extra exercise for Daniel to run between the altar and the boat dock to capture the moment and the reactions happening! As the ceremony got underway, guests witnessed a true bond being created between these two and their families. Their vows were emotional and endearing. You can see on their faces as they exit the ceremony, that they felt the weight of that moment and relished in knowing they were now married.
The party only continued to reflect the nature of this couple. Dinner, dancing and drinks flowed as Katie & Royeric made their rounds to make sure they connected with each and every guest. There were emotional hugs, a few tearful words spoked at speeches but when I look at these photos, I see nothing but smiles. And a radiant happiness that just oozes from their faces. We feel just about as happy as them today, as we share a handful of our favorite images. But we can’t end without giving kudos to Amy from Amore Coordination who so planned & executed this wedding so fabulously!
