What an amazing little adventure Justin and I had capturing three generations of the Ingam family! Their island house has been in their family for the past three generations, along with an incredible custom carved totem bearing each member of the family! Heres a little sneak!
I was so honored to spend the day with my sweet friends Cassy and Jesse as they welcomed their new son Greyson!! With hand crafted nautical accents created by friends and family the atmosphere was serene! We played, laughed and just spend time together as we enjoyed this new little bundle of bliss!
Lauren and Dana absolutely took our breath away!! Starting the day off with a little thunder and lightning, Justin and I could not have been more thrilled to meet our gorgeous couple, who brought electrifying sparks of their own! This was our first time shooting at Fireseed Catering and we could not have been happier than two kids in a candy store! The day unfolded in dreamlike bliss and the two were surrounded by wonderful family and friends! These few images are just a preview to the fun we had… we CANT WAIT TO SHOW YOU THE FIRST DANCE!! More to come soon!
Justin and I were not only privileged to work with an AWESOME couple, we also had an amazing team!! This was our first time working with Jen Purdom, Lead-Cordinator and Bridal Consultant for From The Gown Up! (amongst other fantastic vendors!) She carried the day beautifully and made our job so fantastically enjoyable! I would highly recommend her!
Here’s just a little bit from Buck and Abbie’s wedding, written by Jen herself!
“To put Buck and Abbie’s wedding into three words it would be Simple. Fun. Love. The day was simple in the sense of there was no need to fuss, everything was as it should be and beautiful. Fun is something that the bride and groom love to have together and exude from their core. Both of them have contagious laughter and a playfulness that leaves everyone wanting to hang around for more. Love is what the day was all about. The love between the bride and groom was so apparent you could see it in their eyes and on their faces. During pictures you could feel the love that their bridal party had for them as they posed and played around on the beach in Mukilteo, WA. At the reception you knew that everyone there loved Buck & Abbie. The bonds in friendship and family were strong and beautiful. From the beginning both the bride and groom were very involved in the wedding planning process and had several DIY elements to the wedding. To start, Buck designed and had Abbie’s ring made just for her, just as he knew she would love it. He also designed a banner that was hung from a local bridge to propose to her as they floated the river at sunset and the fishermen on the banks cheered for them as she said yes. This was all a wonderful start to a beautiful wedding day to come. Buck and Abbie designed and screen printed their own invitations in true B & A style that included a picture of their smiling faces. Abbie was often inspired by postings on Pinterest and made her own table overlays and runners from blue and white chevron fabric. In the center of each table was a palm plant and candles adding a simple, natural, elegant aspect to the day. The wood slab guestbook was also an inspiration and was hand sanded by Buck. The H monogram was a tedious detail of wood burning that took some time but was the perfect finishing touch. Close friends also played a role in the DIY projects and made the wedding programs, banners, boutineers and even the grooms ring.
All in all the day was simply beautiful. The bride was stunning in her gown, the groom dapper in his bow tie, the sun shining and love was all around. What more could you ask for?”
She could not have summed it up more perfectly!
Katie and Cassidy celebrated their big day with a destination wedding! (which just so happened to be in their very own back yard!) With its breathtaking views and beautiful weather, Chelan Washington has SO much to offer! And for Katie and Cassidy it was the perfect getaway. Gorgeous homemade details like Katie’s bouquet and cake made this wedding truly unique and sentimental! Here are just a few from their romantic day!
Engagements should be just another excuse to sneak away and escape to a secluded, beautiful spot with your other half! If this sounds like an amazing idea you’ll love this Escape to the Eastside Engagement. Janelle and Blake ventured through Monroe, Washington, laughing along the banks of streams, snuggling in hidden fern forests and kissing behind an abandoned barn! We could not have had a more perfect evening as we ended the night under candlelight! Here are just a few from their session!
