Congratulations to Jessica & Nick who wed with the help of VOWS Owner and Lead Planner/Designer Katy Roberts (formerly Griffiths) on May 18, 2013 at Swiftwater Cellars; central Washington's latest winery at Suncadia Resort in Cle Elum. 202-La-Vie-Photography


First Anna Farris & Chris Pratt married there when they opened a few years ago, next came daughter of Hockey Legend Bobby Hull (our beautiful Miss Jessica). The lucky groom just happened to be from a passionate hockey family himself.  Such is fate.  And it brought us a great party with stunning images!

123-La-Vie-PhotographyThe couple succumbed to the wine theme and crafted centerpieces from cut wine bottles turned votive holders and gave away their own wine concoction with hockey themed labels as favors. The color scheme of orange and slate, with a fun highlight of royal blue, popped like the bride's personality against the rustic beauty that can only be found east of the mountains.21-La-Vie-Photography



The guests had a surprise special touch when they were led outside at the end of the ceremony with biodegradable balloons for a send-off in honor of the bride's mother who had passed. Well wishes of white floated through the air marking a more emotional moment than expected for the couple.

Highlights of the evening were the hilarious toasts and the cigar bar at a fire pit just outside the reception room.
