We all have our people. Your friends, your family, the ones you just seem to click with. Weddings are the same. As a photographer there are certain weddings that just seem to speak the same language as me. Kaylor and Kelsi are good friends of mine. They are incredibly laid back, goodhearted, have a good sense of humor, and my kind of humans. I met Kaylor through our Crossfit gym, so naturally this wedding day kicked off with an early morning workout. They got married at Brookstom Creek in Buckley, Washington. The venue itself has a rustic feel; farm animals, some small barns, and lots of open area against a tree line. Among the animals was this cat that just LOVED everybody. It managed to make its way into the first look photos, napped on a chair during family photos, on the lap of a guest during the ceremony, in the arms of another guest during cocktail hour and snuggled into an elderly ladies scarf at the reception! The day overall was so laid back and fun, I laughed from the time I arrived until the time we left. I loved their sweet little tree planting ceremony, those gorgeous florals, and the bride's rad hair! They ended their night with a sparkler exit and it was one of the best sparkler exits I've gotten to shoot so I want to share it for anyone planning a Sparker exit at their own wedding. The wedding coordinators made a walkway with candles that guests formed a tunnel behind which really helped keep their tunnel clear and safe to walk through for both them and myself! This wedding was a favorite of mine for lots of reasons, reliving their day on my blog brought back so much joy from their wedding day and I feel so lucky to be able to call them friends and have gotten to capture their day!
AND A FEW MORE because I LOVED it SO MUCH !
