Outdoor Wedding

Shelby & Spencer

A Commellini Estates Wedding

Shelby and Spencer have a fairytale love story.  They met in Middle School… yep, you heard me right, in Middle School! In fact we returned to their old stomping grounds for their sweet engagement photos, and we even included their energetic pups!

Commellini Estates, located in Spokane Washington was the ideal venue for their bold color pallet of gold, navy, and burgundy.  Everything was picture perfect - from the pond and fountain to the hanging lights. The weather even held out for them and even though it was a bit chilly it was a beautiful outdoor ceremony.

One of my favorite elements in Shelby and Spencer’s wedding were the love quotes.   Printed and mounted these various quotes were placed at each table, and near the cake.  They were reminders about what love truly means, and really helped create a fun centerpiece for each table.

Shelby was such a gorgeous bride.  Her amazing gown fit her perfectly.  It was feminine and classy, and highlighted her bold and colorful tattoos - which I just can’t get enough of! I also think Spencer pretty much reached Prince Charming level rocking that modern navy suit!

These two lovebirds rocked their romantic couples portraits and their wedding will go down in history as one of my favorites.  

Nick & Nikki

An Eatonville Wedding on Horseback

When Nikki first contacted me asking if I was available to photograph her wedding, I had no idea what kind of surprise she had in store for me. I am beyond thrilled to have accepted the challenge of photographing her beautiful intimate wedding - on horseback!

To say that Nikki’s horses are important to her would be a huge understatement. They play an important roll in the couple’s life, and it was natural that they wanted to include their equine family members in their special day!
Not only were the couple on horseback. So was their officiant. The ring barer was their new colt (and he’s very handsome!) and the ceremony was held on a friend’s property, a short distance from their home. With a bubbly creek nearby and blue skies above it was a perfect day.

One of my favorite features of this unique wedding are NIkki’s amazing boots and her beautiful choice of jewelry and cream lace dress.

After the ceremony we all gathered at their home for a sweet, simple front porch reception to celebrate the newlyweds.

Aki & Miles

Flashback Friday - Aki and Miles
Puyallup Washington

Flash back Friday to 2015 and one of my all time favorite people, marrying another one of my favorite people! I met Aki when she was the daycare provider for two of my small children. She is warm, she is funny, and she is the most genuine and loving person you could possibly meet. Miles is her perfect counter part. He is the cheese to her macaroni and together they are so fun to be around. Their happiness is contagious.

Aki and Miles had a lovely wedding infused with sweet Disney elements, including a Little Mermaid themed cake topper. With their best friends surrounding them they tied the knot in a sweetly intimate outdoor ceremony at what is now the Pierce County Habitat Park in the South Hill area of Puyallup Washington.
