Morgan and Chris are the type of people that you just love to be around. They are genuine, caring and always positive, no matter the situation. Their family and friends are everything to them, and they were a truly important part of their day.

We knew from the start that they would be a fun and adventurous couple to work with, so we were especially excited when we found a new place to shoot at their venue, Suncadia Resort. The Nelson Dairy Farm is rustic, beautiful and inspiring, and was the perfect spot to getaway with these two lovebirds to get some great photos and allow them to enjoy some quiet moments in their day.

There is so much to love about this wedding – the wedding party braving the wind behind the Lodge, the pops of coral in Morgan’s bouquet and shoes, the grey storm clouds and sunbreaks of their ceremony, and the amazing energy of their reception events. We hope you enjoy their photos!

On a beautiful spring day in Issaquah, we were blessed to capture Sara & Adam’s wedding at the Pickering Barn. Sara is one of the sweetest people I have ever met. Adam is thoughtful, caring, and creative. They met at a mutual friend’s wedding in Florida and the rest is, well, history.

Their day was full of laughter and joy, with a few happy tears thrown in for good measure. Every detail reflected them perfectly – a surprise song that Adam wrote for Sara and sang during the ceremony, a guitar for their “guestbook,” cakes by Baked, hand-cut log centerpieces, floral centerpieces from the local market, and their favorite band from Bellingham, Wild Rabbit. All that to say, it was a pretty special day.

We always love traveling to Bainbridge Island for weddings, and Heather & Ben’s wedding at the Manor House at Pleasant Beach Village was no exception. Heather invested a lot of time and energy into personalizing their wedding and making it a fun event for their family and friends – she designed their invitations, hand wrote the dinner menu, setup a hot chocolate bar much to the delight of their youngest guests, and picked some of her & Ben’s favorite chocolate truffles to give out as party favors.

Jacky Grotle with NW Event Success handled all the details, Melanie Benson brought Heather’s rustic/elegant/holiday theme to life beautifully, and the Manor House team cooked up a truly incredible meal. As Heather had told me multiple times throughout the day, she had a wedding “dream team,” and it clearly showed! We hope you enjoy this peek into their sunny December wedding day. We feel blessed to have been there to capture it for them, and wish them a lifetime of happiness!
