Peter and Maja: An International Love Story and a Sweet Northwest Wedding!

Posted on April 6, 2015 by Annemarie

Maya and Peter.

For more than 7 years, they shared a loving and very inspiring relationship, living and working from different places around the globe.

On a sunny Saturday in March – in Woodinville, Washington – this beautiful, gracious and fun-loving couple came together for a sweet and poignant wedding ceremony, surrounded by Maja’s sister from Ireland and a few chosen “best people.”

The weather on their wedding day, March 28th, was beautiful in a crisp and chilly kind of way and perfect for an intimate ceremony outdoors in the garden at The Willows Lodge.

Peter and Maja – much happiness to both of you!

Seattle Elopement for 2? How About for 10!

Posted on December 2, 2014 by Annemarie

I sense a trend in the air!

In the past year, the “guest list” for elopements has been slowly growing.  It used to be 2-4 guests.  Now, we’re averaging about 8-10 guests.

And to prove my point, let’s celebrate Sean and Johnna, married over this holiday weekend at The Salish Lodge, joined by 12 very happy family and friends for a special post-ceremony dinner.

And sharing this holiday weekend, congrats to Matt and Beth, married in a sweet and simple ceremony with 8 family members present.

Both perfect in all ways.

I love a wedding ceremony and celebration for 2.

And while I love the hoopla, joy and delight of a wedding day with lots of family and friends and activity, I appreciate a couple who says “this is what works for us, this is what we want to do to celebrate us.”

Clayton and Michelle exchanged their vows at The Willows Lodge on June 21st, to the delight of their 2 witnesses.  For this sweet couple, their ceremony moments and evening celebration was just perfect.
