Heather & Jesse at The Quarry

For Jesse and Heather, creativity is their passion ... so what better place to celebrate their wedding vows than The Quarry. This amazing site is filled with art of all types (and there is a new reception venue being built that will make it even more inviting!)

Of course, outdoor weddings are always interesting in the Pacific NW. The day was a ribbon of sun breaks and rain showers. Heather and Jesse were prepared with tasteful white umbrellas and took it all in stride. So as we started down the "aisle" and the rain returned, we transitioned from the pond to the tent. (So good to have back up plans in place.)

Heather was beautiful in rain or shine.

Personal vows touched everyone's heart ... and then it was time for the ring exchange.

Well, who was supposed to have them? OK, it was planned that the best man would not seem to know where they were and the rings would actually be presented by another of Jesse's friends. Relief and big smiles.

Thankfully, the sun returned for photos and for the reception. Guests were able to stroll through the landscape, enjoy the art and share the joy of the wedding day ... and evening.

There was dancing and a few games (Greg Lowder did a great job as MC and DJ) and a good time was had by all.

And when the celebration came to an end, the couple drive off in a classic Chevy.

Many thanks to Charis Donough for the photographs!
