On July 3, we left our house bright and early to head over to Ellensburg to shoot a wedding...a true cowboy wedding at the rodeo grounds. This was unlike any other wedding I've ever attended and was an awesome experience for Steve and I to capture some photos that we've never had the chance to take before. Here are a couple of photos from the day.
Once the wedding and reception came to an end, we got on the road and drove 2.5 hours to Walla Walla to celebrate the 4th of July and Shawn's birthday with Lauren, Sarah and John at the Mayer-Riker's new home. Most of the wineries were closed on Sunday so we were only able to check out Dunham (Steve's very favorite) and Reiniger. We ate some excellent home-cooked meals, played a few drinking games, lit fireworks and walked around the major acropolis of downtown Walla Walla. The weekend was a blast and as sad as we are to have Shawn and Lauren leaving Seattle, we're excited to visit them again sometime soon.
