A few of my favorite sets over the last few years

 
 

Zach + Shawnee | Seattle, WA

Zach and Shawnee had the sweetest intimate wedding on Shawnee's grandparent's property just north of Seattle. The forecast had called for rain, everyone became quite damp despite the sea of umbrellas in use during the ceremony that took place beneath the trees; and it could not have been more perfect. Shawnee walked down the fern-paved isle to Arcade Fire's Wake Up played out of a 1980s boombox. We all had goosebumps and couldn't stop smile-crying in this magical moment.

The food, details, and set up were all arranged by friends and family. Most everything being hand-made or handed down gave a feeling of warmth and sentimentality that added to what the day was centered around- simply love. By far one of the coolest and deeply heartfelt weddings I've been present for.


Alex + Tessa

Alex and tessa met when they were 15 and 16 years old respectively. THey have such history; they have been through and stuck closer to each other through the worst of the worst and laughed brightly on days filled with coffee dates and midnight trips to the beach. They have a youthful and enduring love, it's beautiful to witness.


 

Kam + CHelsea

These two have that ‘right in front of me the whole time’ kind of story. Grew up in the same area, in a similar circle of friends and then ‘noticed’ each other. We started out in Lake Oswego for their first look and hit McMenamin’s for Palomas before heading to the Abernathy Center for the ceremony and festivities.

Kam and Chelsea have such a strong friendship, it’s evident in the way Kam looks at her like they are the only two people in on their secrets. I love being around their kind of love.
