It’s always a treat to be invited back again to capture a family and their major moments.

The first time I photographed Jordan, she was about 5 years old.  The next time, her parents were getting married, then with her brothers, then her senior portraits, and now….her wedding.

Everything was great.  It was a sweet and special night at the Driftwood Key Club in Hansville.  Good food, full of family and great friends who might as well be considered family.  And talk about MUSIC!  Dad and Uncle Joe (AKA  The Kennedy Brothers) rocked the house–and every single family member and guest got up and played or sang.  Everyone.  I’m not kidding.   (Except me, of course)

And they even got a Irish send-off.

The very best to you two!!!

Any of you who have lived through our Washington summer knows that it has been rainy for most of it!  Well, not on Sarah and Paul’s wedding day!  It was in the mid 80’s with not a cloud in the sky!  We arrived early to the beautiful Saint Joseph’s Cathedral on Capital Hill and was able to catch a glimpse of Sarah and her bridesmaid exit their cars after getting their hair done.  The ceremony was gorgeous and they had a lot of out-of-towners, some family all the way from Ireland!  After the ceremony, the guests were treated to the ever iconic Seattle favorite, Molly Moons ice cream!  Their bright blue truck was such a welcome site!  The we whisked the couple and their bridal party to Kerry Park for some pictures and fun.  We then arrived at The Canal on the Ballard Locks, to a cocktail party in session, a mask making and clay mold table for the kids, nautical themed flags lining the outside, a lantern that Sarah had made hanging over the dance floor, table numbers as taxi cabs, and tables with Street names and places from all over the world on them.  Wow!  The decorations were endless!   After dinner they cut the cake which had an exact copy of Paul’s wedding band around the middle of the cake and then danced the night away to an amazing local band specializing in Irish music and covers–they were great!  I think we even started dancing, but just for a second 🙂  What a great day!  It couldn’t have been better, congrats you two!

Oh Franny and Eric. 🙂  You’ll remember them from our engagement shoot near the sand volleyball courts at Shilshole a few months ago.  Well, these athletic love birds met playing the game and picked the venue of another game (smaller ball) at Snoqualmie to get married.  We had fun zooming around the course on carts with the couple!  Sitting up above the course the Golf Club ‘served’ a beautifully “set” ceremony site on a sunny, warm summery day.  It was easy to “dig” the soft strumming ukulele and friends and family came from all over the world to celebrate them.   While one of our fav DJ’s kept the dance floor rocking, the busy and quickly emptying candy bar kept it all sweet.

Venue – Snoqualmie Ridge Golf Club

The Picking Barn is a great fit for large crowds, and friends and family of Rachelle and Eric were happy for the choice.  For us, The Barn’s backgrounds of expansive red barn walls and numerous, well maintained surrounding gardens is always a treat!  Gina Marie and her competent team of A Greater Plan, set the stage for a beautiful, creative event and one of our favorite DJ’s – Dave of LeuJam Entertainment – supplied the entertaining beats.  The tower of sweet white and dark chocolate goodness came from A Tier Above.  The couple was up for anything as we used all of the indoor and outdoor space and you just can’t beat colorful umbrellas for fashion ‘pop’ even on warm, dry, summery days.

It’s a story made for a movie….professional headhunter girl meets highly qualified guy in interview, the guy turns down the job offer and disappears from the job search scene but headhunter girl can’t get him out of her mind and eventually finds him still wanting a new job. They meet and connect, this time romantically and eventually decide to marry but not before they rescue Meika, a cute dog from “A Paw-Up Rescue” shelter. Or something cute like that!

As for a wedding site, there are many great places to choose from but on this amazing summer day with Mt Rainier showing her best, the Seattle Tennis Club would be the only match for Kim and Dan! On this day of Love, their vendors were Match-Point! They included her steal-your-breath-away dress from I do Bridal, the eye-popping and radiant bouquets from Colleen Monette, Creme de la Creme‘s great design of an equally great tasting cake (we taste cakes purely for research purposes…), a touching and personalized ceremony by Pat of A Heavenly Ceremony, and Sean from Seattle Parties who never ceases to amaze us with new, fresh music! Up to the task of putting and holding it all together was Kelly from Sweet Pea Events, whose coolness, grace and efficiency sets perfect tone for any match!

With their wedding only a week away, they decided it’s never too late for engagement portraits! It was such a treat to photography Ashley & Mike in their wedding clothes–they were absolutely gorgeous. The look is late-1800’s and Ashley topped off her dress with a vintage fan and homemade shoes! Mike wore a handmade bronze vest to match and tried out his blue cravat. They’ll marry this weekend in the Methow Valley.
