Romantic Wedding Ceremony of David and Amber at the Salish Lodge

Love in the Library

As you know, in the summer many cruise ships depart from Seattle and make their way along the coast to Alaska.  People from all over the country, as well as the world, travel here.  Which is what this bride and groom decided to do.  Imagine this: flying from Texas, arriving in Seattle, enjoying a night at the iconic Salish Lodge (can you get more Pacific Northwest than that), experiencing a sweet wedding near Snoqualmie Falls, boarding the cruise ship and honeymooning while touring some of the most beautiful scenery in the world.  

There are many paths to enjoy near the Falls.
Having just experienced my first cruise, all I can say is "Wow!"

We met near the Lodge, then strolled to the meadow near the Falls and decided it was the perfect place for the wedding ceremony to take place.

It was a sweet and simple ceremony.

The couple selected Why Marriage by Mari Nichols-Haining as part of the ceremony wording:

...  Because I need to cuddle in the warmth of the night
With someone who thanks God for me,
With someone I feel blessed to hold...
Because marriage means opportunity
To grow in love in friendship...

The vows were sealed with a kiss (of course)! 

And, then it was time for another kiss! (There's always time for a kiss, you know.) 

"A Heavenly Ceremony absolutely made our wedding experience wonderful.  Pat is so easy to speak with.  She is very personable, timely and understanding of our wants.  She offered great ideas and lots of resources so you can have the ceremony you want.
During the service, Pat makes the moment more special.  By the energy and passion she puts into it, you can tell she is just as happy for you as you are.  She is a wonderful officiant and we'll always remember her!"
Oh ... what a great wedding!  I truly enjoyed officiating for  David and Amber and wish them a marriage as beautiful, meaningful and engaging as their ceremony!

Many thanks to Cory Parris for these incredible photographs.
