Soiree Event Design, Barrister Winery and Ifong Chen…the bridal shoot trifecta! We were all on the same page…candlelight, romance, candlelight, French themed dessert table, candlelight, a touch of goth and you got it, more candlelight!
I have obsessed over Barrister Winery since the first time I visited the space and enjoyed a glass of wine (or two!) at their historic downtown Spokane location. This 100 year old brick building is one of Spokane’s oldest and has loads of character. It offers a unique and sophisticated backdrop (in a PERFECT location) to a wedding ceremony, reception or even a rehearsal dinner in their beautiful barrel room. Foodie brides to be will be happy to know that Beacon Hill Catering handles events at Barrister Winery and are ready and more than able to make your every food fantasy come true! If you love wine or if you just appreciate a not so run-of-the-mill-venue you will fall in love with Barrister Winery.
For this shoot we wanted to show how endless the possibilities are at Barrister. We knew the right people to make this happen would be Ali and Jessica from one of Spokane’s hottest new event planning companies, Soiree Event Design. These two went all out to make sure every detail was absolutely flawless, just like they do when they plan weddings.
Ask anyone in the know who the top wedding photographer in Spokane is and your will undoubtedly hear “Ifong Chen”. We were so honored to work with her for this shoot!
