Kaylena + Ryan | A Backyard Summer Wedding in the Cascades

Kaylena and Ryan’s wedding was on one of those summer days where the sky is wide and blue and scattered with puffy clouds, where the breeze is warm and kind and fills the air with fragrant scents of the grass of her grandfather’s property underfoot, the sounds of laughter of a gathering of family and friends, and the glow of starlight when the sun finally admitted defeat to the night after hours and hours of glorious glow. One of the rare nights where the air stays warm and feels like an embrace — I miss those coming from the Midwest.

Kaylena left no detail unattended. Everything was so romantic, and the gorgeous florals were dripping in reds and pinks. As the sun set over the reception tables, fairy lights lit up the tables and candles flickered in the twilight. I mean it was DREAMY.

Enjoy.

Rachel + Jon | A Vintage Meets Modern Romantic Winter Wedding in West Seattle

When I first met Rachel we connected over FaceTime for a few minutes to chat about her wedding. She told me her story about how she and Jon met and fell in love in a whirlwind and they just couldn’t wait to call it forever. I met them for their engagement session and fell in love with both of them, and would also like to call it forever.

On their wedding day, they were just so keyed into each other. There was no stress. It was so easy. Just that kind of wedding where you can tell that this couple was MEANT to be together. One of the highlights was their sweet first look in the natural light of the 100-year-old church attached to Trinity in West Seattle. It had the most amazing other-worldliness in its decay and beauty. I also loved the super unique glowstick exit at their reception!

Every single detail was just lovely — romantic deep reds and lace and the most lush florals created by the amazing planning team at Leigh & Mitchell. The aisle lined in candles and greenery made for a romantic and intimate feel paired with the dim light of Trinity’s stained glass windows. The dance floor was probably one of the most packed and INSANE ever — so much fun and energy. You’ll see.

Enjoy.

Katelyn + Drew | A Chelan Backyard Wedding

I’m not even sure where to begin with these two. When I met Katelyn & Drew for their engagement session, I knew they were incredible authentic, kind, genuine souls. But it wasn’t until their wedding day that I was completely floored at their dedication to one another, the beauty of the love of their friends and family, and the joy that everyone shared as they started their life in union.

I was amazed at how much was done by friends and family. Her family friend, Krishna, did the amazing florals and table decor, including Kateyln’s beautiful flower crown, and Katelyn did her own makeup and hair. Katelyn styled the whole thing, with BHLDN velvet dresses for the bridesmaids and a gorgeous backless lace dress and killer Sam Edelman shoes that created a romantic and luxe bohemian gathering that I was so dang lucky to be a part of.

I cried during the ceremony as the small A-frame chapel filled with powerful song. Everyone was swept up in the music, and it felt profound to bear witness. As I walked the aisle from back to front, the music got even louder and I swear I could feel it in my bones. It completely embodied the feeling of the day.

Katelyn & Drew, thank you, thank you, thank you for letting me capture this for you.
