A Beautiful Couple Wed At The Salish Lodge, With Family Only!

Posted on August 2, 2017 by Annemarie

I loved EVERYTHING about working with Lisa and Dave in the months before their beautiful and intimate wedding ceremony on July 17th at The Salish Lodge in Snoqualmie…and EVERYTHING about their wedding day.

This sweet couple, who traveled from Canada to be married at The Salish Lodge, worked with me to craft a wedding ceremony that was personal, joyful and one that honored the beautiful people around them – Dave’s children and their partners.

There are couples I will remember forever.  Dave and Lisa, thank you for your graciousness, kindness and grace – I wish you much love and good fortune on your wedding adventure!

 

Cameron and Allison “Elope” To Snoqualmie Point Park!

Posted on June 26, 2017 by Annemarie

This was just so much darn fun!

I met Cameron and Allison on a rainy Friday evening to get them beautifully married in the very happy presence of their parents.

Cameron and Allison chose Snoqualmie Point Park for the privacy and the beauty – the mountains are just gorgeous and the scenery is spectacular!

While it was raining as we all pulled into the parking lot, the sky cleared up and a bit of sunshine peaked through as we started their ceremony.

Much happiness to such a sweet couple!

Harold and Terri: With More Than 20 Years of Loving Relationship, They Are So Hitched!

Posted on June 6, 2017 by Annemarie

When I walked through the door and first met Harold and Terri, I said to myself, “yes, I so like these people!”

This lovely couple of more than 20 years, traveled down from Canada to be married at the home of dear friends in Bothell on a very sunny and warm afternoon in late May.

I love home weddings.  They are easy, they are fun and the intimate atmosphere helps remind all of us what is important more than anything on a wedding day:  the love and devotion of two people.

Cameron and Alison Married At Snoqualmie Point Park!

We had sunshine, we had wind, we had rain – and we had a lot of LOVE!

On Friday evening, May 12th, the sweetest couple exchanged the sweetest vows at one of my most favorite parks, Snoqualmie Point Park in Snoqualmie, WA.

In the presence of their parents, Cameron and Alison, who have known each other since Kindergarten, exchanged vows and rings…in an intimate and personal lifetime moment. Such happiness!

A Seattle Elopement! Easy, No Crazy and Beautiful at The Willows Lodge…

Posted on April 24, 2017 by Annemarie

One of the best ‘deals’ for an elopement in the Seattle area is The Willows Lodge in Woodinville.

Many of my couples love the ease of the “I Do for 2” package which includes a wonderful room/overnight, lovely amenities and if you need it, 2 witnesses (which is a big deal for some couples).

Benjamin and Rebecca took advantage of all of this goodness and were sweetly married at The Willows Lodge on April 19th, surrounded by 6 people who mean the most to them.  Happily, the rain held off and we had their ceremony at the little waterfall grotto, which is a favorite among couples.  And what a happy, happy ending and kiss!

A Short Rainbow of Clear Skies for Rik and Gina at The Willows Lodge!

Posted on March 25, 2017 by Annemarie

It’s been crazy and unpredictable weather this Winter and so far, during our brief Spring here in Seattle!

Gratefully, we received a ‘rainbow gift’ of clear skies yesterday afternoon and were able to get Rik and Gina beautifully married in the lovely garden of The Willows Lodge in Woodinville.

Surrounded by their Mothers, Gina’s 2 children and Rik’s brother (from Florida!), we enjoyed a sweet and intimate ceremony and an immediate toast afterward in their suite.

Simply just the best and most inspiring and gracious couple…much happiness, Rik and Gina!

Rain, wind, ice, snow and cold…and nothing was going to keep me from getting Justin and Caroline from being beautifully married yesterday, Seattle’s official ‘Snow Day 2017!”

Gina + Seth: An Intimate Elopement for “3” At The Willows Lodge.

Posted on January 24, 2017 by Annemarie

For anyone who follows me, they know that The Willows Lodge in Woodinville is one of my most favorite venues in the Northwest for an intimate and small wedding ceremony and celebration.

On a crisp Winter day, Gina and Seth ‘eloped’ to Willows Lodge, with their sweet daughter and photographer.

We had their ceremony outdoors by a lovely water feature in the garden with photos afterwards.

Gina and Seth – much happiness to you!

Farewell, Sally. You Are One of The Very Best Dogs In The Entire World…

Posted on January 10, 2017 by Annemarie

I recently received word that Sally passed away.

Sally, so beautiful and loving, was the beloved dog for a wonderful couple who eloped to The Salish Lodge last March.

Sally was not only the flower girl, but ring bearer as well as canine witness.

Most of all, Sally was 17 years old.  She lived a beautiful life with her people and leaves a great legacy of love and memories.

Forever and ever, Sally.

Jim and Diane: Married Sweetly At Home In Woodinville…

Posted on December 14, 2016 by Annemarie

This holiday time of year, weddings at home are big.

Rather than venturing out to a venue, bed and breakfast or boutique hotel, many couples opt to invite a few close family and friends to their home for an intimate ceremony and celebration during the holiday season.

Diane and Jim were married at their home in Woodinville.

Surrounded by very happy family and friends and their two dogs, these two lovebirds did things their way, easy and fun.

Believe it or not, it’s amazing how many couples get married at the end of the year.  There must be something about the twinkling lights and egg nog!
