Bridget & Xander | Cascade Hills Country Club

Bridget and Xander are the kind of couple that you meet and you instantly adore them both and are just happier for being around them. Their wedding was a perfect reflection of this as their friends and families celebrated the union of these lovely humans. I so enjoyed getting to know them and photographing their wedding day at St. Robert of Newminster Parish and reception at Cascade Hills Country Club.  I’m so thrilled to share their preview images with you, I hope you all love them as much as I do. Congrats to the beautiful couple!!
