Trash the Dress - Water Fun at Rattlesnake Lake

Andrew and Nikki love the Pacific NW:  the water, the mountains, the Sound and the ocean and lots of lakes.  They enjoy the outdoors and hiking and all types of nature activities.  The two chose to wed at the Cedar River Watershed Education Center, which is a lovely natural venue, right on Rattlesnake Lake.

After the ceremony and reception, it was time for a little water fun.  Yes, it was a warm day and the water felt good. 

It reminded me of younger days when we lived near a lake in Northern Minnesota. (Well, actually two lakes - one for swimming and one for fishing.)  

Doesn't this look like fun!

Very spontaneous and full of life, just like Nikki and Andrew.

Wishing the two health, long lives and happiness (along with prosperity)!

Alderbrook Resort Destination for Renee and CJ's Wedding

CJ and Renee wed at Alderbrook Resort this summer.  What an ideal spot!  The weather was gorgeous, the people joyous and the celebration in full gear. Plus, there was live South Seas music to get everyone in that tropical mood.

I like the trend of shades of one color with various bride's maid dress styles.  Of course, pinks and corals are very popular.

Do you think the guys were having a good time or what?

And check out the snazzy socks.  Seahawks colors for sure. (Yes, there is a tie in here.)

Isn't this an incredible view for a wedding?   Wow, mountains, the Hood Canal, and sunshine.  A
perfect day!!

Anticipation and excitement while awaiting the bride's entrance. Smiles all around.

Here's the grand overview.  Spectacular! 

Accept this ring as a symbol
  of my love and faithfulness. 

As I place it on your hands,
  I commit my heart and soul 
  to you.
Please wear it 
  as a reminder of the vows
  we have spoken today, 
  our wedding day. 

With this ring, I thee wed.

Married and happy!  What more can you say.

Well, actually, there is a lot to say.  All of it filled with joy.

I'm a tall person and so are Renee and CJ and their wedding party.

Wishing the bride and groom happiness and love neverending.

Many thanks to CJ and Renee's wedding team:
Planner:  Brittany Kukal

Wedding Activities for Children

Ed and Shannon planned out so many fun things for their guests.  One of these was a Factology Booklet written by the bride and groom with all types of things for youngsters to do:  finding words, checking out the Center for Wooden Boats for certain items, filling in the called for actions.

Very creative and very personal. 

Dr. Helena Amber Gerr leads you through.  She's a class act and clearly an adventurer.

Couldn't wait to share this with you all!  Great work, Ed and Shannon.  I enjoyed looking through all the experiences.

It is obvious you care about all the youngsters at your celebration.
