Emily & Kyle ~ Wedding

It has been a true summer this year – warm, sunny, vibrant!  And as it draws to a close, it was so fitting to spend one of our last ‘in season’ Weddings with Emily & Kyle on 08/23/14, and their family and friends at Greenfield Farm & Gardens in Anacortes – a stunning, rural venue that yielded beautiful mixture of shaded and direct light!  Our happy couple actually met years ago in High School, and have had quite a journey on their way to Greenfield Farm to tie the knot.  Emily & Kyle are both finishing up at Central Washington University (go Wildcats!) in 2 very different courses of study (Emily is going to be a Phys Ed Instructor & Kyle is going into Computer Science)!  But last weekend was just about their love for each other & making that lifelong commitment that’s been in their hearts for years in front of their family & friends!  Highlights:  Pastor Kevin’s amazing job officiating the ceremony, the Shania Twain Dance at the reception, the Wedding Party’s amazing jump shot & Emily’s Sister’s moving toast!  As always, we also shared the day with some great vendors (some of whom were family too), & here they are:

Hart’s Flowers / Bouquet & Floral Arrangements

Whitney Johnson / Wedding Coordinator

Farmhouse Restaurant / Catering

Mike Yoeman (‘Mike in the Mornings on KAPS – 102.1 / Mount Vernon) / DJ & MC Services

Cynderellie’s Closet / Emily’s Wedding Dress

Pastor Kevin / Officiant

Grandma Jean / Wedding Cake

Fred Meyer Jewelers / Wedding Rings

Please join me in wishing Emily & Kyle many happy years together, the best of luck as they simultaneously enter their new chosen professions and the happiness & joy that comes when you find your soul mate along the road of life!  Congratulations to you both!

Brianna & Mike ~ Wedding

Jenn and I were privileged to photograph Brianna & Mike’s Wedding at the Tulalip Resort Casino back on 08/16/14!  Brianna & Mike had a few years together (& a few years being parents to Jayce, Konner & Gavin!) prior to their big day at the Tulalip a couple weeks ago, but those years only seemed to have made their love for each other deeper & stronger (it shows in their photographs)!  No Bridesmaids & No Groomsmen – but wow, the couple looked amazing!  Brianna looked stunning in her Wedding Dress from Lainee Meg in Snohomish and Mike looked great in his black tux with a straight tie!   We used the backgrounds & environments at the Resort to capture some amazing shots & meeting with Brianna & Mike’s families & friends was a blast!  As always, we also worked with some fantastic vendors, & here’s that list:

Lainee Meg / Snohomish Bridal Boutique

Taylor Sound / Mobile Music & MC Services

Flowers By Tiffany / Bouquet & Floral Arrangements

Elle W. Hair / Hair Design & Make-Up Artistry

Simply Sweet Cupcakes / Wedding Cake & Cupcakes

Tulalip Resort Catering / Catering & Bar Services

Please join me in wishing Mike & Brianna many more happy years together as the walk down the road of life now as husband & wife!  Congratulations to you both!

Ashton & Mitch ~ Wedding

The Grand Willow in Mount Vernon was the perfect venue for Ashton & Mitch to hold their beautiful Wedding back on 8/3/14, & Jenn and I were honored to be there to capture it all!  Our happy couple actually eloped last year, but that didn’t change the energy & excitement of this special day!  The Grand Willow is a stunning venue that looked even better in the beautiful sunshine we were blessed with all day long!  The Grand Willow also provided all the catering (the food was to die for!) and the awesome DJ Service thanks to Martin Iverson (DJ & MC extraordinaire!)  We also wanted to recognize Xtra Special Cakes  in Mount Vernon (conveniently located about 5 minutes from the venue!) for the delicious cake, Hermosa Bridal Boutique in Snohomish for Ashton’s stunning dress and the Men’s Wearhouse for our Groom’s prefect summer formal wear.  The day was amazing and the emotion & love shared between our happy couple was so incredible!  Special thanks to Connie with the Grand Willow for her help & thanks to all the family and friends who graciously worked with us throughout the day!  Please join us in wishing Ashton & Mitch many-many happy & joyous years together down the road of life!  Mitch is also an Army vet who has served overseas, and wanted to make sure we thanked him for his service to our country!

Lacey & Carl ~ Wedding

Jenn & I were privileged to work with Lacey & Carl and their family & friends at their amazing Wedding at French Creek Estates on 08/02/14.  We had photographed Weddings at their sister site before (Lord Hill Farms), but this was our first time at French Creek, & it was stunning.  Lacey and Carl picked the perfect venue to celebrate their love for each other & mother nature provided the perfect day (we had some spontaneous T-storms, which just made the day all that more special).  Highlights:  shooting in & around the beautiful house on the hill, Lacey’s expression at the first look, the high grass by the barn, Lacey’s stunning dress and an incredible sunset!  Working with fantastic vendors was also a bonus, & we wanted to send out a special “Thank You” to EVENTful Moments for taking good care of us throughout the day (you guys are awesome)!  Here’s links to all the great vendors we had the pleasure of working with:
