Michelle & Stephen | Mercer Island Wedding

2015-08-25_016

They’d known each other since college when he sprayed her with a can of deodorant (see full story here), which made her furious rather than fall in love with him as planned. Dating came a few years later, senior year to be exact, after Michelle realized he wasn’t just a prankster but a sweet guy that she liked way more than a friend.

As they realized they couldn’t live without each other Stephen planned a romantic getaway to San Francisco. The two explored the streets, ate great food, and hiked to a viewpoint of the golden gate bridge. When Michelle turned around after the view she found Stephen on one knee, ring in hand, popping the question she knew she’d say yes to.

Their adventure continued with a wedding full of love, dancing, great views of the city (Seattle this time) and memories they’ll cherish.

Michelle & Stephen, thanks for having us tell your story and capture such an important day! ~Erik & Marissa

Kristina & Chris | Orcas Island Wedding

2015-08-11_018

A vacation in the San Juan Islands led them to an overlook from a grassy knoll on Orcas Island, and they just knew. This would be the perfect spot to start the rest of their lives together as husband and wife.

As the geese paddled by in the ocean below and the wind brushed through the orchard nearby, Kristina walked arm in arm with her parents to meet Chris on that same grassy knoll. There were teary, handwritten vows from Kristina, who swore she wouldn’t cry, and huge smiles from Chris, the usually stoic groom. Their flower-pup Lucy waited patiently in the front row and wagged her tail in excitement when cheers erupted for the first kiss.

We have a feeling this spot will be special for many years to come, as a getaway, for anniversaries, and one day to bring their children to tell the story of how they were married at this very spot on the island, the grassy knoll overlooking the ocean.

Congratulations you two! ~Erik & Marissa

What a view for their wedding day! The drive to the top of Mt. Constitution was worth every minute for Kristina & Chris to spend alone time together on their wedding day.

Stefanie & Kyle | Olympic Sculpture Park & Pier 62/63 Engagement

Their first date was supposed to be just coffee, but they had such a strong connection it was quickly upgraded to a sunset dinner on the waterfront. Kyle’s sweet nature put Stefanie at ease immediately and they both knew this was something special. For her next birthday, Kyle gave Stefanie the best gift ever…he told her he loved her. Now they’re planning for their fall wedding and enjoying every moment together!

We are so happy to be working with you two during this moment in your lives. Cannot wait for the big day! ~Erik & Marissa

Katie & Jack | Pickering Barn Wedding

2015-08-03_007

She walked down the aisle in lace and her mother’s veil following her flower pup, Starbuck, who definitely tried to steal the show. Katie was so gorgeous that the pup was soon forgotten and Jack only had eyes for his bride. When the announcement was made, the newly married husband and wife shared a look of surprise, love, and excitement to start this new chapter together.

The one thing you should know about Katie & Jack is this…they are huge dancers. After saying their vows and having their first kiss they were most looking forward to celebrating their day on the dance floor with friends and family, dancing the night away to band music from A New Groove. And that is exactly what they did.

Congratulations you two! May there always be a fun dance floor with your names on it. ~Erik & Marissa

Megan & Todd | Pioneer Square Engagement

She spotted him at the rehearsal of her cousin’s wedding. She had an instant crush on the cute guy across the aisle. Megan was a bridesmaid and Todd was a groomsman so after the rehearsal they all went to the rehearsal dinner. Megan discreetly switched name cards to sit next to Todd and that was it! The night obviously went well since these two are now having a wedding of their own.

Congrats Megan & Todd, you two were made for each other (opposites and all!). ~Erik & Marissa
