Megan and Luke are Married

Megan and Luke had a late August wedding at Merridale Cider. Megan is one of those girls who you don’t expect to be nice, because she’s so darn gorgeous. But she’s super sweet too. I think one measure of how great a person is is how emotional their friends get during the wedding toasts, and this bridal party was crying up a storm. Luke is also an amazing guy, and they clearly make each other so happy.

Other great things about this day: the cutest flower girl ever (leading two adorable ring bearers), Megan dancing with her mom and father-in-law during the reception in addition to the traditional father-daughter dance, the bouquet dance with the longest-married couple getting the bouquet, a crazy packed dance floor including some YMCA and Macarena, and so many smiles throughout the day.

Lacey and Kerrie are Married

I wasn’t sure what to expect at Lacey and Kerrie’s August wedding, since we hadn’t met in advance. I was pleasantly surprised by a bride with a very fun and funky sense of style, the coolest bouquet of fake flowers ever, and a totally sweet wedding party. We were also, not so pleasantly, surprised with rain for their Wednesday wedding. The rain moved the ceremony into the greenhouse at Starling Lane Vineyard, which was still beautiful, though it restricted our movement a bit. But Gwen and I were really excited about the fog that rolled in for their Elk Lake portraits. The weather perfectly suited their personal style, and the couple seemed too happy to even notice the rain.

Lacey’s smile was the perfect symbol for this day – so full of joy and unrestrained happiness. I love the moment she saw Kerrie while walking down the aisle: nervousness at first, but a huge grin breaking out as soon as she saw him. The groom and crowd’s reaction mirrored her own. Such a fitting representation of the day.

Kimmie and Steven are Married

Kimmie has one of the brightest, bubbliest personalities of anyone I’ve ever met. She gets so excited about things and on the wedding day, that translated to a lot of laughter and emotion. Steven, I think, is her perfect match. They both brought such enthusiasm to the events of the wedding day. Not many of my clients do the traditional bouquet and garter toss anymore, but these guys did and they relished it. It was a joy to watch. Their first dance was so sweet and cute, with twirling and hand holding, and even a Dirty Dancing style jump-into-his-arms fakeout.

The wedding took place at Arbutus Ridge Golf Club, which is such a stunning location with a killer view. The decor was fun and hot pink, perfectly matching Kimmie’s personality. It was such a perfect day for this super sweet couple. We left them dancing into the night, after taking a ridiculous number of photos of all the fun.
