Nuptials Exchanged by Brian and Karen at the Alexis Hotel

Karen and Brian enjoy a moment.
Destination weddings are fun! What better place to gather than the Pacific Northwest -- it's beautiful and there's a lot to do whether you are here for a few days ... or a week or two.   Guests traveled from from Florida, South Carolina, and Tennessee, from DC, Ohio and Minnesota to celebrate with Brian and Karen. Everyone seemed to have a great time!

The bride and groom decided on a traditional candle lighting after exchanging their vows.  It is a wonderful way to symbolize their unity, particularly indoors where the candle light warms the room. 
Kent and I always look forward to the vows and then the unity ceremony because there is a special joyful feeling that radiates from the bride and groom.  I smile just looking at this photo. 
And then, Kent pronounced them Mr. and Mrs.  it was time for the kiss!  Everyone was delighted!
You can never have too many kisses!!!  
And then on to the celebratation.  I love cake ... and just looking at this one makes me crave a piece.  It was made by Kelli Morse of Kelli's Creations and the bride and groom gave it a thumbs up for both looks and taste.
Thank you so much for helping us create the perfect ceremony.  It was everything we could have wished for ... and more!   It was a beautiful, personalized, and memorable wedding ceremony.

Kent, thank you so much for performing our ceremony.  You were a big hit!  Everyone commented on how smoothly everything went.  And we could't have been happier. 
Congratulations to the newlyweds!
We hope Karen and Brian enjoy an amazing marriage together, filled with the enthusiasm, joy and excitement that was present on their wedding day!
