Where the Perfect Place to Wed in Spring?

Beautiful bride, handsome groom, lovely garden!

Yes, in the Pacific Northwest, there are so many amazing places.  One of them is Lakewold Gardens.  Robert and Christina were so very lucky to enjoy good weather plus the perfect bloom of rhodies and tulips and daffodils.  Spectacular!
Wedding colors were a deep purple, which was quite striking.  Christina also chose the fleur-de-lis as the theme for the wedding.  Her married name will be French, you see. 

And, she also crafted all the programs, signs for her husband-to-be and her, the mother of the bride and the father of the groom.  She did a great job.

There were lavender sachets for the guests.


Even the cake was decorated with the fleur-de-lis.  Loved how everything tied together. 

The young ladies were all excited about the big day.  Since the wedding was an intimate affair, everyone knew each other well.

The importance of family is primary for Christina and Robert.  Here they are with their three Christina's daughter, Caylin, and her son, Kai, and Robert's son, Kyle.

Wishing them all a happy and healthy life together!

Professional photos to follow by Kyle and Patrick of Luna Bella.  These were taken on my Droid.  Everything was so beautiful, I couldn't restrain myself. 

Music was provided by Dani Li on violin.

Deception Pass -- What Could be Better for a Wedding CeremonyThan There!

Rebekah and Austin waltz to their own music!
Isn't this a great wall?

There are some weddings that are simply fun --Rebekah and Austin created one of them.

We all gathered -- about 20 or so people -- at their place near Fisherman's Terminal. Folks drove quite a distance to get there.  If I remember correctly, from Denver and other places many miles away.

It was a stunning day:  sunny, warm, clear.  The bride and groom really lucked out.

This is North Beach with views of both
the Sound and the channel.
From there was traveled caravan-style to Deception Pass.  We gathered at the parking lot nearest North Beach and hiked the .7 mile trail to their perfect spot.  Even Grandma made her way there!

The ceremony was unique and included a hand fasting and an exchange of personal vows. 

I look at you today just like any other day, Austin, and I know how perfect you are for me. 

Cuddles are so good!
There is no other person in my life, Rebekah, whom I would rather be with. 
I love you.

The happy couple -- all smiles!
It truly suited the two of them.

Wishing the Mr. and Mrs. the very best in their pursuit of happiness and connection and expression of their creative talents!

Warm Wedding Vows on a Cool Mountain

Crystal Mountain is truly an incredible place to share "I do's!"  It was the perfect wedding venue for Jason and Kelli.  The two love the mountains, the snow, the tress, the fresh air ... plus it holds many enjoyable memories for them. 

And, now it will remind them of their wedding day!  The two exchanged their first look atop of the mountain.

There were so many places to take photos.  The guys were looking quite dandy in the green vests and green Converses.

The ladies were looking stunning!  And the colors look wonderful.

Together, they were a good-looking group!  (The weather was fairly dry -- the clouds would settle every now and then, creating a romantic look.)

Plus, it was a family event!  The three boys were adorable.

The ceremony and reception took place in a beautifully decorated tent on the patio.

Rich presented one of the readings that spoke of the friendship that Kelli and Jason obviously share.

The bride and groom were very excited to be Mr. and Mrs!

Yup, there was a lot of kissing that day.  It was a joy to see.
The couple shared a sweetheart table --
it seems a very popular idea over the last few years.

Do they look happily married

Wishing Jason and Kelli the very best.

Thanks to Jeff Marsh Studios for all the photos!
