Meli and Ryan's wedding was so special! They were married under the very same cedar tree that Meli's parents said their vows beneath 34 years ago. It was colorful, cozy, and intimate. I loved the sweet details that Meli put together! The joy was absolutely palpable. I'm so happy for these two.
a burst of sunshine on this icy day - i'm so happy to share Liz & Bill's wonderful wedding. they married under the apple trees at a family property near Stevenson, Washington. it was so beautiful to see the love poured into their celebration by friends and family in attendance - cooking, eating, playing games, toasting, making music, and dancing. as the sun went down and it got a little chillier, guests sang huddled under the lights in the apple trees. i left them still singing together, heart full, humming "wagon wheel" as i drove away.

a wedding is about love, above all. this is said often, but can never be said enough! family, friends, venue, decor, food, cake, music, dancing, speeches, the dresses, the suits, the jewelry - these things are icing. this one was no exception, it had the whole package! all on a beautiful sunny August afternoon, and with a super cute doggie ringbearer! but for me the highlight of this day was the first look - after spending the morning preparing for this moment, as soon as Erin saw Matt, she relaxed so completely. this is what it is all about - the two of you. your love, and the promise you make to each other to never forget that. take a deep breath, and soak it all in.
