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 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!

Jaki and Trevor Wine and Roses Wedding

I’ve always said that my dream clients are kind and goodhearted people. Literally from day 1- that is who I want to work with, that is who I want to serve. Jaki and Trevor are those people. I’ve known Jaki since highschool, we played basketball together and were good friends throughout those years. When she came to me about her wedding, my heart exploded. When I finally got to meet Trevor, on their engagement shoot, I couldn’t have picked a better person for my friend Jaki to get to do life with. He is kind, and smart, and takes her on adventures! If you didn’t see their engagement session, you will want to here: PART 1 and PART 2 (yup, so good they had TWO posts about it) Their wedding was nothing short of the amazing day I imagined it would be- they were surrounded by their family and closest friends, she wore a flower crown, her mom made their cake, they got down with a food truck, there was crowd surfing and a wild dance floor, and they exited their wedding with a lavender toss. IT WAS A REALLY. REALLY. REALLY. GOOD. DAY. My heart is so full from this wedding, and I am so grateful to have been able to witness it, capture it, and be along for the ride. Cheers to J + T!
