An Arizona couple made their way to Washington state for a fall-themed wedding, but came across a winter wonderland instead. Brittany and Sean Tuohy planned their outdoor wedding at a lodge on Washington’s Mount Spokane, hoping for wedding photos with orange hues and crunchy autumn leaves.
“My original plan was to take them all to the top of the mountain, where there would’ve been a million fall colours and trees above the city and do their portraits there,” the couple’s photographer, Jaime Denise Fletcher of Jaime Denise Photographysaid. However, the snowfall on the mountain was much heavier than she had anticipated: “I felt like I was in a snow globe, but not in a good way.”
The photographer was initially worried that the newlyweds would be disappointed at the unexpected snowstorm. However, everyone’s good attitude led to stunning images. Fletcher grabbed a scarf, put it over her head and camera lens and started snapping.
“We all ran outside and just giggled and took photos as fast as we could. The winds were at least 30 mph, and the blizzard was so intense so we only got about 10 minutes worth of photos, but it was worth it!”
“If future brides are anything like this one… they will take the day with grace, make the best of it and truly have the best time… because that is what Brittany did. She was amazing and I am so in awe of how easygoing she was and how much fun she had on her wild winter wedding day!”
