I was so excited when Amber contacted me to photograph their wedding in the same town I attended college! Amber and Ruslan are both Pullman, Washington natives... literally... they both grew up in Pullman, so of course it was only fitting that they tie-the-knot in the same town! The happy couple got married at SEL Event Center! The adorable couple was so much fun and I am honored to have been a part of their most special day!
As always... starting off the sneak peek blog post with a smiley photograph of the newlyweds!
The SEL Event Center is a large and modern venue. It has plenty of room for the guys and girls to get ready, the wedding ceremony, the reception, and more! It made the perfect venue for Amber and Ruslan's wedding!
The pearls Amber wore on her wedding day are a family heirloom and have been handed down through the generations. They made for a beautiful accent to her wedding attire!
Showing off the rings!
Amber's wedding garters were hand made by Amber's grandmother!
Ok... so as if it weren't enough for Amber's grandmother to make the wedding garters... Amber's grandma made her wedding dress! Now that is impressive! WOW!
A beautiful bride on her wedding day!
Ruslan made for a handsome groom!
The entire bridal party! They look fabulous!
Haha! Ruslan is such a stud... The bridesmaids couldn't help but blow him kisses!
So I can't decide if Ruslan is more of a stud or Amber... just check out her flexing with the guys!
Not sure the bridal party liked all the kissing... but how fun is this photo!?!?!
Cheers to Amber and Ruslan!
Now to focus on the handsome groom and beautiful bride!
Amber liked showing off the dress made just for her! (Grandma... you sure made a beautiful dress!)
Hand and hand!
If you follow the Distinction Studio Facebook you've already seen this photograph but it's just so cute I had to share it again!
Oh my goodness... Romantic, loving, adorable... Picture perfect!
I'm not entirely sure what these two are doing in this photograph but it's cute and different!
Giving each other a little love! These are some of my personal favorites from the day!
Ending the post with my personal favorite... These two rocked the dipping kiss! With the Pullman wind blowing, the wedding veil was flowing beautifully! I can't get enough of this photo... it's romantic and photo magic!
To Ruslan and Amber... What a blessing it was so be able to photograph your wedding day! I enjoyed getting to know such a fun and loving couple! Now that you know how much I love visiting Pullman, hopefully this isn't the last time I get to photograph you two together! Congratulations... You're married now! Cheers!!!
