Ashley & Tyler’s Traditional Spokane Wedding
Tyler and Ashley both grew up in Coeur d’Alene but they didn’t meet until they were in high school. Six years later Tyler was proposing to Ashley at the very Mexican restaurant they had their first date. The couple got married in the summer of 2016 with a traditional Spokane wedding. Babies breathe and purple carnation flowers covered the aisles as they said their ‘I do’s’. Tyler and Ashley danced the night away on a beautiful summer’s night to remember.
