Inspiration & Tips

Even though it was 80 degrees yesterday, Fall is definitely in the air. The leaves are changing, the nights are colder and most of us are trading in our flip flops for boots, scarves and sweaters. Today's inspiration shoot at the stunning Bear Creek Lodge on Mt. Spokane is full of autumn inspired details. The shoot was styled and organized by the talented Robyn of Red Letter Event Planning and photographed by the always inspiring Ariel of Designer With a Camera. Here is more about this inspiring shoot from Robyn: "There's nothing we love more than a hidden gem of a venue, and Bear Creek Lodge in Mead, Washington is just that. With gorgeous outdoor spaces, large stone fireplaces and a fun ski lodge vibe, this venue provides a low-key bride with the perfect space to party, any time of year. When finished in 1952, the building was the widest single span wood structure west of the Mississippi and people came from all over to see it. The lodge is family owned and operated and has undergone many updates since it's original completion. One of the highlights of this space is the amazing in-house catering-- nothing beats home cooking! With food to die for and scenery to rival a movie, this venue is sure to stun. One of the largest attractions of this space is undoubtedly the outdoor options it provides. A small creek winds through lush, green gardens and provide the perfect backdrop for an outdoor ceremony or cocktail hour.We couldn't resist the opportunity to showcase such a unique space, so we teamed up with some expectational wedding professionals to highlight the space with a woodland elegance theme. Red Letter Event Planning coordinated and styled the shoot, bringing together many vendors to make the vision come to life. Designer with a Camera captured it all perfectly, and In Full Bloom provided the perfect floral backdrop to accent the space."
