The Most Beautiful Native Wedding

|

Lex C. Imagery captured the most beautiful Native wedding. The different traditions that were incorporated made this day absolutely perfect.

“When I arrived to the wedding site of Hahots & Valerie Shebala, the first thing I noticed was the beauty and depth of the clouds. The energy was peaceful and lighthearted, so I knew it was going to be a great day. The two tipis set up and a handmade alter caught my eye immediately. As a member of The Colville Confederated Tribes, the weddings I’ve photographed have primarily been of tribal members as well.

“The part I’ve always loved is seeing how different Tribal Native weddings will incorporate their traditions in different ways. Earlier this year, I had taken the couple’s engagement pictures at the same site. They had told me that the plot of land they were getting married on was to be their first home and horse arena they would build together.

” The wedding ceremony itself couldn’t have been any more beautiful. A Spokane Tribal elder, who has known the couple since they were children, officiated the ceremony then blessed the couple in a prayer.

“After the reception, the couple concluded their evening by playing horse shoes and roping together. This wedding stood out to me and was incredibly unique.

“The combination of their tribal beliefs/practices along with their love for horses and living a country life, set the aesthetic of the wedding over the top.

“Everything couldn’t have been more perfect; the happy couple, the weather, the decor, and the ambience of the two families gathered to celebrate love. I wish Mr. & Mrs. Shebala a long and prosperous marriage.” -Lex C. Imagery
