River Valley Oasis Wedding in Granite Falls, Washington

Crystal and Chris opted to get married on June 12, 2021 which is Loving Day at the River Valley Oasis wedding venue in Granite Falls, Washington. It is a very significant day for them and it was so important that they get married on this very day.

What is Loving Day?

Loving day is a yearly celebrated day which is the anniversary of the day that the supreme court approved interracial marriage in 1967. Unfortunately it is not a recognized federal holiday, but it still of the upmost importance none the less. Mildred Loving is the beautiful strong and black woman behind Loving Day getting passed. I can’t thank her enough for her efforts.

How and Where Did your fiance Propose? Was It a Complete Surprise?

Crystal said the actual words first but Chris claims he said it first by using a princess bride quote on me. I had never seen the movie so it was lost on me.

"I am absolutely obsessed with the photos she captured"

WOW… I do not know where to start! I did not know Lessie before our photoshoot but I am so glad to have met her and chosen her to capture our engagement pictures! She was so easy to communicate with and so so helpful from start to finish. I am absolutely obsessed with the photos she captured of my fiancé and I! Not only do the photos look beyond amazing but our experience with her throughout the photoshoot was out of this world! She is extremely talented and was amazing at capturing natural and real moments!

Lessie is the most compassionate, easy to communicate with , professional photographer I have ever had the joy of working with. Lessie has a skill set the surpasses many others, her attention to detail, her willingness to try new things and her commitment to the highest quality photos and experience for all who have the honor of booking with her is unprecedented. Lessie has a soul that is so invested in producing authenticity that many photos seem to lack.

"We highly recommend Lessie. She is GREAT!!"

Lessie is an amazing photographer. We could not be happier with our wedding photos. I love that she included many unique shots that I wouldn't have thought of but that I really love. Also, along with the photos of my husband and me and photos of both sides of the bridal party, she captured many of the wonderful smaller moments and details that are hard to notice amidst the busy-ness of the wedding day. We loved seeing those smaller details and the candid photos of friends and family as well. They're all very special to us.
