you exceeded what we dreamed our ceremony could be."

Tree of Life (And Love) Guest Book

Tree of life and love guestbook - Wedding ceremony officiated by Kent Buttars, Seattle Wedding Officiant
I love this trend in "guest books."  

There is some type of design, such as this tree, with family and friends adding their thumbprints to create the leaves.



Some couples also encourage their guests to sign their 
thumbprints or to add a wish for the couple.

Afterwards, the bride and groom can frame the creation and place it in their home. 

It becomes a daily reminder of their love ... and the people who love them.

This is Shaina and Thomas's guestbook.  Wishing them the very best in their marriage!


And thanks to Tom Ellis Photography for these images.

"Attached you'll find a great one of THE KISS with Kent smiling!"  says Victoria.  (He does look happy, doesn't he?)

Some couples meet in highly improbable times and places.  Others, like Travis and Victoria, have known each other since childhood.  

Wishing the two decades and decades of happiness. 

Many thanks to Bryan Hudson for the images.

Washington Park Arboretum - A Beautiful Wedding in a Beautiful Park

Lindsay and Peter wed at Washington Park Arboretum - Patricia Stimac, Seattle Wedding Officiant


Simple, elegant, natural -- a truly lovely wedding!  Lindsay and Peter wanted an intimate ceremony that included their family and closest friends.  They selected the Woodland Pond area of the Washington Park Arboretum.





I loved how the bridesmaid dresses mirrored that of the bride ...
and how the colors were from a muted palette.

The groomsmen wore suits that complemented the bridesmaid's dresses.











The ceremony took place within the park, where there are no cars (although a shuttle service was provided for the grandparents).

The limosine waited at the Visitor's Center, where most people parked.

And although the day began a bit overcast, the sun came out in the afternoon.
It was a perfect day for a wedding!

The photos are a bit of a sneak peek from Corinne Krogh.  More are to come.

Wishing Lindsay and Peter a life of happiness!! 

I love the Arboretum and always check out the plants for sale at the Visitor's Center.  This time I purchased a climbing hydrangea (plan to use it on a fence).  As I followed the trail to the wedding ceremony area, I saw the plant I had just bought!!  It will be perfect.

Dede and Leah and their Children - Patricia Stimac, Seattle Wedding Officiant


What a fun wedding!  

Dede and Leah planned a quick elopement ... and when their family and friends heard about it, about 15 or so made their way to the ceremony.

Including their children ... and three adorable Beagle puppies!

Just weeks old, the puppies were irresistible.  Everyone wanted to pick them up and cuddle them.
