Ryan & Carissa ~ Engagement

Rose-Lily had the opportunity to work with Ryan & Carissa during an amazing Engagement Session at the Washington Park Arboretum back on Sunday-09/11/16!  Lindsey and I had so much fun working with our happy couple as we meandered the main walkways & special back paths that make up this amazing botanical wonder!  Ryan & Carissa met four years ago a friend’s birthday party & have been going strong ever since!  For their first date, Ryan took Carissa out on the water in his Sea Ray for a picnic (how romantic is that)!  When they aren’t out in Ryan’s boat, our happy couple enjoys going out to Dinner, the Theater and Sounders Games in Seattle!  Ryan works in finance and Carissa works in the legal field, but they are both taking the day off on next June on 06/10/16 to tie the knot at the the Fairmont Olympic Hotel (& Rose-Lily will be there too)!  So until then, please join me in wishing CONGRATULATIONS to our happy couple & check these highlights of their wonderful Engagement Session!

    Heidi & Michael ~ Wedding

    Rose-Lily met up with Heidi & Michael for a wonderful countryside Wedding at Greenfield Farm & Gardens in Anacortes back on 09/04/16!  Our happy couple were joined by their friends Tim & Heather (and Heather’s 2 daughters as flower girls) to make up a very special Wedding Party!  Family and friends really helped to make this amazing day possible, as did our colleagues from VIP Espresso & Catering (who kept everyone happy & hydrated) and Party Pros Entertainment (who kept the reception rockin’ away)!  Highlights from the day were Heidi’s stunning dress, Michael’s handsome tux, the delicious pulled pork sandwiches and some very yummy cupcakes!  It was a great late summer Pacific Northwest Wedding for an amazing couple!   Please join me in wishing Heidi & Michael many-many happy years together, and check out these special highlight photographs as well!

    Jacquelynn & Matt ~ Wedding

    Rose-Lily drove up river to Concrete to meet up with Jacquelynn & Matt for their incredible Wedding at the Baker Lake Lodge on 09/03/16!  Friends & family pitched in to cover all the catering & bartending and The Bare Feet Band got us all up & rockin’ away at the reception!  Highlights included Jacquelynn’s stunning dress, the incredible backgrounds up at Baker Lake, the delicious ribs at dinner and the couple’s super cool commemorative shot glasses as the guests take-away gift!  Working with Jacki & Matt was great & their up-river friends and family made Ashley and I feel right at home!   We also wanted to thank Mother Nature for giving us about 30-45 minutes of shaded light at the lake right when we needed it most!  All & all, it was a perfect day, so please join me in wishing Jacquelynn & Matt many happy years together in the beautiful mountainside community where they tied the knot (and check out these highlight photographs from our amazing day)!

    Melanie & Zach ~ Wedding

    Rose-Lily met up with Melanie & Zach for a wonderful country side Wedding in Anacortes at Greenfield Farm & Gardens back on 08/27/16!  Melanie looked amazing in her beautiful dress from Alicia’s Bridal in Bellingham & Zach looked very debonair in his tux from the Men’s Wearhouse.  Zach’s step brother Dan officiated a perfect ceremony for our happy couple under a sunny Northwest sky and Melanie’s cousin Jared (aka “DJ J-Red”) rocked the night away during their fantastic Wedding reception!  We wanted to give a shout out to Double Barrel BBQ for the amazing pulled pork Sandwiches VIP Espresso Catering & Bartending for keeping the beverages flowing!  And of course the amazing cake by Xtra Special Cakes & stunning floral arrangements from Petals by Linda also deserve a big nod!!   It was a day full of love, joy, happiness & lots of laughs too – so here’s hoping that description also fits the many-many years ahead for Zach & Melanie! So please join me in wishing them Congratulations & check out this amazing highlight set from their Wedding at Greenfield Farm & Gardens!



      Ashley & Nate ~ Wedding

      Rose-Lily met up with Ashley & Nate for their spectacular Wedding at The Monte Cristo Ballroom in Everett on Sunday 08/21/16!  As Wedding Photographers, we love The Monte Cristo Ballroom;  with it’s beautiful facade and interior + some amazing near by city-scape backgrounds, it’s hard to go wrong with the pictures at this stunning venue in downtown Everett! Needless to say, Ashley & Nate looked absolutely amazing in their Wedding attire!  Their Wedding Party was also super-fun to work with and we had a blast once again working with Patron, their Canine companion!  Great weather & lots of laughs made the photos turn out great & all the excellent vendors are included at The Monte Cristo Ballroom, but we wanted to give them a shout-out here anyway (Catering, DJ, Cake, Bartending Service, Photobooth – all outstanding)!  So please join me in wishing Ashley & Nate many-many happy years together & check out these great highlights of their special day (& night!) in Everett!
