Photos From My Wedding!

I am so excited to share images from my wedding with you today! I married my husband, Mike, back in early September and was absolutely perfect. It was a day filled with so much laughter, tears, hugs, smiles, and incredible people, that I almost can't remember it- it was all so thoroughly consuming in the best of ways, and of course, went by all too fast.

We had a perfect forecast leading up to our wedding weekend and had everything set to go for the outdoor festivities, and the weather was beautiful that morning as the girls and I got ready at our hotel. Mike's brother in law, Scott, married us, and rocked us all with laughter and moved us all to tears in the incredibly beautiful ceremony he prepared for us. I walked down the aisle to my brother playing "Here Comes the Sun" on guitar, which was my parent's recessional song at their wedding 43 years ago. We stood on my grandmother's rug and held hands under a canopy of green branches and hanging lanterns as we exchanged our vows, surrounded by our favorite people in the world. As the ceremony came to a close, claps of thunder shook the skies, adding quite the drama and excitement to our words. After we just made it back down the aisle and inside, the rain began. And it rained- oh, it rained. HARD. And didn't let up.

With the help of our incredible team of vendors we were able to enjoy the rest of the night a la improvised Plan B. Though it saddened me to see all my planning and all the truly stunning dining tables and outdoor displays that our florist put together get ruined almost instantly by the rain, nothing could stop that night from being the best ever. And it was just that: The best day ever. 

We moved the dinner and reception into two small rooms that the venue had, and made it work! Instead of table numbers, we had locations; My talented cousin drew sketches of all the cities and places that both of us have lived or that we hold dear to our hearts. We wanted all of our guests to be able to find themselves in a photograph with us- dozens of prints littered the tables and people sifted through them over drinks. We had a large table with framed images of our grandparents, parents and other special family portraits. We were treated to the most amazing toasts by our friends and family, and then, of course, partied the night away! We got things started off with our first dance, Fleetwood Mac's "Everywhere With You", and only left the dance floor to pop into the photo booth or take a polaroid for the guest book. Guests took some local Seattle coffee home as favors, that we had packaged and stamped with our name the night before.

It was just perfection! I hope you enjoy our images from our wonderful and super talented photographer, Amanda K, who also captured our stunning engagement shoot on the Oregon coast earlier this year.
