One of the best parts of my job is watching people’s wedding journey. We featured Emily and Trevor’s Manito Park engagement a while back, so I was THRILLED to see Emily’s email with photos of their wedding, which also took place at Manito! This is a wedding full of heart and elegance. Emily wore her Mother’s wedding dress and the couple had their reception in her parent’s backyard, it doesn’t get more special than that! Here is more from Emily:
“Trevor and I had our engagement photos featured on Apple Brides at Manito Park, so we thought it would be fun to share our wedding photos that also took place at Manito!
It was always my dream to get married at Manito Park and that dream came true! Our wedding took place on the only day in July that it rained, of course. Luckily we had scheduled a late ceremony time at 7pm and the rain stopped and the skies cleared right before we started taking photos! It was perfect timing, green coming through from the grass and trees, it felt like a sign God, and we felt so blessed.
With the help from our Spokane family and friends, we put together our own garden reception in my parent’s backyard, and it was magical. Best day of our lives!”

From photographer, Olivia:
“Emily and Trevor’s wedding day started out with lots of rain! After waking up in the morning to the sound of rain drops on the roof, I always think, how is my bride doing?!? And Emily, being the relaxed, hopeful woman she is, was completely okay with it. Thanks to Jesus, the rain stopped JUST in time for photos to start, and the sun peeked out during moments of the night. The ceremony was at 7pm, with Trevor’s first look at Emily as she walked down the aisle, so photos took place after the ceremony in that almost-sunset-past-sunset light….so lovely!
Once the rain stopped earlier in the afternoon, the sky was a beautiful misty grey color with sun breaks here and there, creating the most DREAMY light for the garden ceremony in Manito Park. The reception was at Emily’s parents house, which had some of the best decor I’ve seen yet. Racing to get the last bit of light, I captured some of my favorite detail shots there!
Emily wore her mother’s wedding dress, which was a perfect combo of classic and elegant..and how special is that. It was a wonderful evening and I am so thankful that I got to photograph it!”
