There are some moments in life that are extra special and precious.
It was my happiness to be with Andrew and A.J. as they exchanged beautiful vows before a small and intimate group of friends on a crisp Saturday afternoon last week in downtown Seattle.
This moment was a long time coming for these two loving men. We celebrated their path to their wedding day and the anticipation they have for their shared future.
Andrew and A.J., I wish you so much love, happiness and joy on your marriage adventure!
It was such a pleasure to finally meet Christina and Chris and share in their wedding day at the Seattle Arboretum on Friday morning.
Joined by their parents, we got this couple so beautifully married in a reserved Meadow near the Woodland Pond.
Traveling from Ohio to be married in Seattle, Christina and Chris exchanged beautiful vows and heartfelt words – drenched by truly beautiful Seattle sunshine, usually a rare thing this time of year!
Congratulations, Christina and Chris!
As the weather turns from Summer to Fall in Seattle, all things outdoors become unpredictable.
So, a smart wedding cookie knows that an easy and elegant wedding day, no matter if your guest list is 2 or 200, includes an indoor option (Plan A) and outdoor option (Plan B).
Simple. Easy. And if the weather is fabulous for an outdoor ceremony, wonderful. If the weather turns, you’ve got a thoughtful indoor venue.
Sean + Lindsey.
Married in Seattle on Saturday, March 29th, under a cloudy sky – and with so much love.
Sean and Lindsey started out as friends, and while Sean was stationed overseas, their friendship turned into love.
And Sean and Lindsey were super happy to have Lindsey’s sister and boyfriend as their witnesses, along with a friend and wedding dog, Jeb!
Sasha and Amanda Ackerly – you are so very married!
These two beautiful ladies traveled from the Mid-West to Seattle to marry at The Edgewater Hotel in downtown Seattle on Thursday, November 14th.
Joined by 20 of their best people – all who traveled from different parts of the United States for this lifetime moment – Amanda and Sasha shared poignant and beautiful vows and shared in a ceremony that not only celebrated the two of them but the intimate gathering of folks who traveled far to be there!
Sasha and Amanda – You have inspired those around you for 16 years with your loving relationship. Here is to many more happy years together!

Chann + Debbie!
I LOVE that one of Chann and Debbie’s first dates was hauling buffalo across the Texas State Line!
Prior to getting on the Celebrity Solfstice with 4 close friends, Chann and Debbie were married high in the sky – at the top of Seattle’s Space Needle on Thursday, May 23rd.
We had a gorgeous bride, happy groom, thrilled friends, beautiful flowers, sunny weather and lots of love and joy!
Much happiness to you, Chann and Debbie!
You know how a photo says it all?
Claire + Sarah = LOVE.
Congratulations, beautiful ladies! Such an honor and pleasure to share in your Seattle wedding day!
Jim + Bob.
I absolutely love these guys.
More than 15 years ago, we became neighbors when we moved into a brand new development in Issaquah at about the same time.
My husband and I eventually moved to Bainbridge Island and a few years we later ran into Bob and Jim on a cruise to Mexico!
And it was my pleasure and delight to join these two loving and devoted men in marriage surrounded by thrilled family and friends on April 6th at the Hotel Vintage Park, downtown Seattle.
Jim and Bob – much continued love and happiness (and adventures!) to both of you!
There is nothing like a morning wedding ceremony – especially for an elopement!
Picture this. John and Kara. 15 family and friends. All flew in to Seattle for this sweet ceremony and celebration.
Tulio Restaurant, downtown Seattle – Saturday, 10:30 a.m. – ceremony, brunch, festivities – and the rest of the day to explore, enjoy and play in Seattle.
A morning wedding ceremony is often so very fun for a couple. It gives them the opportunity for a lunch or brunch and the rest of the day is totally and fully available to create lifetime memories.
Also, many venues offer added value for a morning ceremony – unlike the “prime time of an afternoon or evening ceremony and celebration.
Kara and Josh – much, much happiness to you!
Look at these faces!
Pure Joy! Pure Fun!
Ben and Sarah traveled from Michigan to get hitched on a on a waterside bluff overlooking the Puget Sound in Sequim, Washington.
The guest list? Ben and Sarah, two photographers from Firstlight Photography and moi!
With grey skies, raindrops and a couple of white and black umbrellas, Ben and Sarah exchanged vows during a “surprise ceremony” I wrote and created for them.
Sequim, Washington is a beautiful location for a ceremony and celebration, whether your guest list is a couple of people or 100 folks. Congratulations, Ben and Sarah!
