When Rechelle and Erik were planning their Karma Vineyards wedding, they couldn’t think of a better theme than modern romance — and we totally agree! The bride a.k.a. Sea of Sanctuary planned the vision for her romantic day, and Lauren Neely Photography captured every moment of it perfectly. The girls were dressed in hues of blue from Lulu’s, which looked fabulous next to Rechelle’s feminine Made With Love Bridal gown. Just wait until you see the pampas grass and greenery goodness floral designer Wandering Blooms created! If you’re into phenomenal views and simple elegance, you will absolutely swoon over these two’s Karma Vineyards wedding day!
Rechelle & Erik
Karma Vineyards, Chelan, Washington
I loved my dress, I knew I wanted something lace but not a traditional lace, I wore Riley Luxe by Made With Love Bridal and had a cathedral length veil. For my makeup look, I went with a rose gold eye but everything else was pretty natural but just done a little heavier.
When planning our wedding the two most important things to us were photography and videography. We heard so many times that the day flies by, which it does, and we wanted to be able to look back on our special day and have as many images and videos as possible to remember and see for the first time.
The most memorable part of our day was a tie between our first look and the moment I walked down the aisle. Our first look was just Erik and I and it melted away all the jitters I had all morning. Walking down the aisle was equally as memorable because that was the first time I got to see all our family and friends and knowing they were there to celebrate and support us was so special.
Erik and I both grew up coming to Chelan so we knew we wanted to get married there. Karma Vineyards is known for its views and food so it was an easy choice.
We absolutely love Lauren, we knew from the moment we met her that we had to have her as our photographer. She really knows how to make you feel super comfortable and essentially like family. She knew when to let us have a break, she kept us on schedule and even took extra photos that guests asked for.
Our wedding colors were shades of blue, gold and white. Our favorite color is blue so it was something easy for both of us to agree on and blue is a classic color. White, gold and green to add a touch of romance.
