It started out to be a small event for Jim and Teri. Just a private wedding with family: a short ceremony
in a bed and breakfast owned by friends, and a dinner out in Leavenworth. A winter wedding,
with some simple colors, snow for the kids, and special friends. And then the wedding grew a bit…
A wedding for a couple who know what they want and value. Daughters and friends come to help get ready.
Careful choice of colors, dresses, and details make the celebration special.
The sky cleared and revealed a gorgeous view of the valley below Haus Rohrbach, the cozy inn that hosted the wedding. The Inn had a deck facing east, away from the flank of Tumwater Mountain where it perched with a bird’s eye view of the valley below. The wedding is simple, but Teri and Jim wanted the openness of the view and the fresh air to make their wedding unique. It is the first week of February and the forecast was for cold clear skies. A few decorations on the railing, a chair for a friend playing a guitar, and a respectful crowd gathered to wish the couple a great start to their life together.
The ceremony is simple, the bride arrives in the arm of her son,
and the music floats in the cold air like the aroma of fine barbecued ribs on the fire.
The vows are simple the hugs are warm and the bride quickly poses for some photos before air temperature drops again.
Inside where it is warm, the cake is cut the glasses filled and the families introduce themselves.
A few family portraits are really all that is left to do before supper in town, and the winter night becomes new…
