Marisa and Auston’s wedding at the premier winery in Downtown Spokane, Barrister Winery last August was one we will always remember. This was a wedding we have been looking forward to and praying for. The hurdles of Covid-19 took this wedding into some bumps and detours BUT this couple arrived to their ultimate destination that was nothing less than PERFECT.
Marisa and Auston define chill, fun and Christ loving couples in love! The way they look at each other give us a good idea of how deep they really feel for each other. We have been so blessed to witness their journey from dating to the big day!
The day started in the Penthouse of The Davenport Grand Hotel where hair and make-up was done. The bridal party had a blast and popped a champagne with their matching dusty rose robes! Which I was also gifted!! It’s the prettiest robe with delicate floral crochet on the sleeves, super thanks to the wonderful Maid of Honor Joelle. Marisa was surrounded by the sweetest ladies who made sure she’s well taken cared of. I’m pretty sure I was bawling seeing her in her stunning David’s Bridal A-line tube dress! It was breathtaking and left us all screaming in excitement. Marisa is a beautiful woman inside and out, just like her sister said “She’s a solid 10!” Her radiant glow magnified even more by her make up artist Shelli Densiton of CreatebyShelli.
The ceremony had barrels of wine as a backdrop and their heart warming promises for each other left so many of us in tears. The ceremony was lead by the bride’s Dad Scott, it filled with lots of encouragement for not only to couple but for all of us present at the time. He talked about the purpose of marriage and how they can work together to reflect the character of God through them and their relationship.
After the ceremony we head to the residence of the wedding planner Kim Leland which has an over looking view of the Downtown. I mean how cool is that?! Every people they loved were there to celebrate their love although there were some Covid-19 restraints and some family members could not make it, they were still able to face-time and celebrate! The couple had the most romantic reception ambiance and the sweetest first dance I was looking forward to all night!
It was truly a wonderful day! Together, Marisa and Auston reflect a couple dedicated to walk gladly with Christ. The way Auston looked at Marisa with his joyful smile and gentle touch on her face just show how deeply he loves her. I am so inspired by their compelling love for each other.
Marisa and Auston, no one deserves this perfect day more than the two of you. It was our greatest pleasure to be present and document this day with you. I can’t thank you enough for trusting us over and over again. Cheers and congratulations on the beginning of your new chapter!
