Leilani and Ian borrowed an accidental tradition from her parents' wedding anniversary: her mom and dad were married 7.8.78, and these two married at the courthouse on 1.8.18. A little extra numerology luck for an incredibly sweet couple.
A highlight of the night for me was the first dance at the Inn at the Market. While their guests headed to dinner, Leilani and Ian chose to share a quick first dance on the rooftop, with their son playing DJ. They had the rooftop terrace to themselves. It was magic.
Only three other people in the world -friends of the couple, the judge, and I- were there that evening to witness Jill and Giti exchange their vows, but as I've learned over the years and seen time and time again, the number of wedding guests doesn't diminish the heightened energy of the wedding ceremony.
In your face, thunderstorm! We rocked some portraits despite the rain at Ben and Connie's Colorado wedding! It was such a special day, and such a treat for me to shoot in my home state. Sometimes, a little bit (or a lot) of rain on your wedding day just adds to the ambiance.
What a beauty this wedding was. Caitie and Kyle are the kind of couple that I would be happy to work with over and over again. They're super easy-going, have a great sense of humor, and ALSO they have a really cute dog that they let me pet. WIN!
Amber and Lucas decided to tie the knot in one of their favorite places: near the Skyomish River in the small town of Baring, Washington, with only their siblings by their side. They rented a cabin overlooking the river. Played some frisbee before their ceremony, which was officiated by the groom's sister; ordered barbecue from one of their favorite spots, and had an impromptu dance party together in the living room to celebrate. It was a small gathering with lots of fun and big heart. A fave for sure. Congrats, loves!
