Alisha and Drew are a couple with creative natures.  They live near Golden Gardens and wanted a relaxed wedding ceremony on the beach. 

Drew looked dapper in his linen suit and hat.  Alisha was beautiful in her wedding dress and bouquet of stargazer lilies.

It was a spectacular September day ... perfect for spending on the sand and near the Sound.

Alisha selected colors of the sea and shore for the ladies' gowns.  I love these hues.

Drew and his "guys" - Patricia Stimac,Seattle Wedding OfficiantDrew and his attendants were relaxed and having fun.  All were confident it would be a memorable wedding ceremony ... and it was!

The entire wedding party entered from along the shore.  The guests could see the couples approach from quite a distance.  It was a beautiful setting.

It was very important that everyone was included in the ceremony so Drew and Alisha decided to have their wedding rings "warmed" by the love of their family and friends.

As you can see, there was quite a breeze that day so although we were in the midday sun, everyone was quite comfortable.  Alisha and Drew are dedicated to sharing a life in a conscious and loving way.  Their commitment shone through.

There were so many touching moments.  Love was shared -- it radiated from the two!

All was done with care and mindfulness.  It is apparent in the simplicity and gentleness of each gesture.

Words were felt in a profound way.  Here is just one snippet:

If just being in the presence of the other you feel suddenly happy, just being together you feel ecstatic, just the very presence of the other fulfills something deep in your heart…

And so Drew and Alisha became Mr. and Mrs!

All the thinking and dreaming and planning lead to this moment ... and it was time to walk the path of husband and wife, the path of a married couple.

Wishing Alisha and Drew a lifetime of harmony and bliss.
