Abby and Bryce Engagement

Today is Abby + Bryce’s wedding day! I couldn’t be more excited. I figured it’s as good a time as ever to share their engagement photos! I actually kind of love this because going through their photos made me every more excited for today. We actually took a little trip down to their venue for their photos. I liked this for a couple of reasons- I got to spend car time with them (for those who follow me on IG, you know how much I value my car chats- this is where I get to know my people). We also stopped for Dutch Bros, Abby introduced me to Americano’s, I’ve never turned back since that day. Lastly, I got to see their venue! Which was so fun. Walking around with them, listening to them dream about their day and what was going to be where, and how it was going to be- was so special. I CAN NOT WAIT to see it in action today. Cheers to Abby + Bryce, today is going to be a REALLY FREAKING GOOD DAY.

Avery and Joey Day After Session

Following their Thornewood Castle wedding, we met these two out at her parent’s cabin in Washington to do a few photos of the two of them in a special place for them. These sessions are actually awesome (especially for any wedding that is feeling short on time with bride + groom portraits). I think these two totally nailed this, it was so funny getting to see them AGAIN after their wedding day and reminisce together about their wedding and how fun it was. If you missed their feature in Seattle Bride Magazine be sure to pick that up, or you can see more of their wedding day HERE. Cheers to A + J!

Avery and Joey Thornewood Castle Wedding

Avery and Joey got married at Thornewood Castle in Tacoma, WA. Crazy story- but when I got married almost 4 years ago, Avery was actually the Nordstrom Bridal Specialist helping me search through wedding gowns! When she came to me about her wedding, I knew she knew what she doing in all things wedding related. She had planned this wedding out to the detail with her mom, everything coordinated and turned out beautifully. We started at her parent’s home with Salon Maison, she put that stunning Liancarlo gown on once she got to Thornewood Castle. I love the moments before the first look, her glancing out the window watching the venue get set and people arrive. The florals from POSH were AMAZING (like those colors, stunning!) With a gorgeous ceremony set in the garden, they had their reception on the back lawn with dinner and toasts as the sun set. (side note: their food from Ravishing Radish, was AMAZING. It was fresh, and delicious, and healthy, and I could have gone through the line six more times) They followed this with a packed dance floor inside with Sounds Unlimited. They danced their hearts out and ended their day through a Sparkler exit with their friends and family surrounding them. It was a beautiful wedding and I am so grateful to have been able to be there and see this much LOVE and SUPPORT surrounding two amazing people. Congrats A + J!
