Erika and Will’s summer wedding at the Bend in the River, a riverside wedding venue in West Richland, WA, was nothing short of mesmerizing! The venue, with its tranquil river bend backdrop and serene natural surroundings set the stage for a fun and deeply romantic wedding day. Paired with colorful wedding details, it was a day filled with love, laughter, and intimate moments.
The Story That Led to This Riverside Wedding Day
I’ve had the privilege to work with many couples over the years, but Erika and Will are genuinely some of the coolest people I’ve ever met. Their journey began in Georgia, where they met in college and have been together ever since.
Erika’s multifaceted life as a personal trainer, peace corps officer, and her unwavering support for Will through his medical school journey is awe-inspiring. And Will, with his background as an army ranger and his current role as a practicing doctor, showcases so much commitment and courage.
Erika and Will have been through so much together and I was honored to be there to capture the start of their life together as a married couple!
Romantic Wedding Day at a Riverside Wedding Venue
The Bend in the River, their gorgeous riverside wedding venue set the stage for a dreamy, romantic wedding day. The outdoor setting felt like it was straight out of a fairytale. I loved the beautiful river views at the backdrop of their ceremony!
I have to admit, working with Erika felt like teaming up with a soul sister. Our shared love for Taylor Swift made the whole experience so much more fun! Erika was an absolute vision in her sleek and elegant gown. And her bridesmaids in the blue mismatched bridesmaids dresses complemented her perfectly.
