Mary & Jeff – Married at Camp Zanika Lache Leavenworth {Lake Wenatchee Washington Wedding Photographers}

When I looked up the venue that Mary & Jeff had chosen for their wedding day, I think I squealed!  I love love love Summer camp venues, especially those in the Pacific Northwest, so I couldn’t have been more excited to photograph this day.  They were married at Camp Zanika Lache just a couple of hours from Seattle, but about 5 hours for me in Portland!  It was such a beautiful drive up to the Lake Wenatchee / Leavenworth Washington area, and the smoke from all the wildfires was still lingering low in the air.  Mary & Jeff got ready for their day in separate wooden cabins, and then had a first look on the lake shore.  The ceremony overlooked the lake, where guests sat on giant logs around a little stage.  It was so adorable.  The smoke made the lake and mountains look so romantic, and of course we took some photos with a canoe.  The reception was in the dining hall, which the couple had incorporated and decorated with some of their favorite things; Harry Potter, National Park posters, Dr. Who and Star Wars.  Be sure to watch the slideshow right below to see a ton of images from their day (and a little video too!)… and then scroll down to see a handful of my favorite images from the day.  Oh and check out and LIKE the CRYSTAL GENES PHOTOGRAPHY FACEBOOK BUSINESS PAGE to see an album with even more images that you can download and share in a few days!

I loved that this table played Head’s Up while waiting for dinner.  On a side note – this guy, who lives in California, is in a band I’ve been following for like 5 years, and who I went to see play last year when they came through Portland… so it was like a random celebrity sighting for me!  You know, I always think I recognize people at weddings, but I’m always wrong, so it was really neat that this time I was right!  Check out their website hereyOya  and here’s a link to a video that I still love that first got me listening.
