Lonn Mejiano... check out his portfolio, it speaks in ways I couldn't put into words. You won't get the typical shots with Lonn, you'll get speechless.

I have worked with Faith at Emerald Photography at only one wedding, but her pictures are still among my top favorites of all the weddings I have done. This classy chick is going to go far, so plan on booking her far in advance.

New kid on my block, I haven't had the pleasure of working with Brittany of Breathtaking Weddings & Event Planning yet, but my experience with her as a volunteer at my 11-11-11 event made me feel confident she is one to interview if you're looking for a planner.

Venue Reviews

Stone Ridge Event Center is a beautiful venue in Pasco, WA offering an outdoor ceremony gazebo, waterfall and gorgeous vineyard. They have an indoor area for your reception or as a backup for bad weather.

 

 Bella Fiori Garden is a lovely  venue in Finely, WA but don't let the location fool you! You will have to wipe drool from your chin and try not to do the snoopy dance when you walk into the European style wedding and reception area. 

 

Benton County Fairgrounds-several different buildings available for rent. $600.00--$2000 per day, up to 1000 people. Tables and chairs included. Great for an outdoorsy, country or cowboy themed wedding!

 

The Sandberg is an afordable venue W. Richland has a charming outdoor area with mulitple gazebos, a pond and lots of greenery. Their indoor hall has an old church feel and is very charming. My only dislike was the built in podium on the stage, made for setting up the wedding party awkward.

 

Memories at Sunset if you're looking for a newer venue that offers both indoor and outdoor ceremony options, don't dismiss Memories at Sunset due to their unusual location.

 

 

 

Other Places to Check Out:

Tri City Wineries-great places to marry, have receptions & more!

 

Roxy Wine Bar-beautiful historic downtown Kennewick wine bar available for weddings & receptions. Seats up to 115 ppl.

Dawson Richards Tux shop in Uptown Richland has saved the day twice for me and never let it show if they were irriated by my showing up with young men needing to be outfitted in tuxes to be worn that day. Good looking suits, good, reliable service and no waiting!
