Ponderosa pines. Cliffs. Rivers. Jazz. Light. This memorable event in Spokane, Washington was soaked in sunshine, atmosphere, energy, music and connection all day and all night.
The historic Glover Mansion, which was built in 1888, played host to the day, including both parties getting ready, the wedding ceremony and the reception. Spokane’s largest historical mansion, the Glover Mansion boasts a grand hall as well as an intimate garden for wedding ceremonies, creating a true sense of place. Wedding photography at Glover Mansion comes easy with such a great place to stage events.
We enjoyed seeing the city and taking wedding portraits at an array of gorgeous locations, including the stunning nearby Manito Park, cliffside above the Spokane River among the ponderosa pine as well as the sun-soaked downriver area of Spokane, making the most of a warm day and scenic spaces. Here the couple is framed in green pine and dappled in sunlight as they share a moment.
The sunshine and service warmed hearts as the bride’s father presided over the very personal outdoor ceremony at the Glover Mansion, and the local group Hot Club warmed bodies with its rocking hot club jazz and swing music for the reception. The talented groom even sat in with the band, making music as well as more memories.
Not wanting the celebration to end, an after-party at the historic Davenport Hotel’s Presidential Suite saw the groom and his friends singing and playing songs on the room’s piano until the small hours of the morning. Nature, music, friendship, fun and romance were in the air, in the room, in the moment.
