Sabrina & Ron | Fairview Park Engagement

The first time they met at a mutual friends’ house it was confusing. They talked and while getting to know each other Ron assumed Sabrina was asking him out on a date, when she thought she was just being nice mentioning they should hang out sometime. Thinking back on it now she thinks maybe subconsciously she was asking him out! Sometimes the heart works in mysterious ways…

In any case, it all worked out in the end since they really did start dating, even getting a puppy named Knalla together, and living a happy life traveling, hiking and playing doubles volleyball. Now their focus is on planning their Santa Barbara wedding since Ron’s surprise proposal and continuing their happy existence with one another (plus their pup Knalla).

Thanks for letting us peak in on this time of your lives together Sabrina & Ron! ~Erik & Marissa

End of Summer Getaway | The Ciccarellis

Sometimes you need to get away. We did just that at the end of summer and our busy wedding season. When we found a hole in our schedule a week prior we instantly blocked it, grabbed the essentials – wood, burgers, and s’mores, and packed the car. We were gone by noon and stress-free by 2pm as we arrived among the forested cliffs that overlooked the rocky shore.

Sometimes you need an escape. We were even more overjoyed to drive into the park and instantly have our phones disconnect from the internet! Apparently there was a perfectly placed bubble over our park with no service and we enjoyed an entire 48 hours of technology silence, which was replaced by crashing waves as we fell asleep and chirping birds for our wake-up call. (And one morning of taking a few pictures of our breakfast cooking below!)

Sometimes all you need is a little silence, a loved one, and a s’more (with double marshmellows) to recharge, let go, and remember what’s really important in life…to live it.

~Erik & Marissa

Amanda & Devin | Olympic Sculpture Park Engagement

He’d planned out the most romantic proposal ever! And then it rained…but luckily Devin is fast on his feet and moved the whole day around to accommodate the weather and still make sure Amanda had the most amazing proposal.

She had no idea when their date started that his intentions were to propose, but that’s because she said he is a romantic and always surprises her with special dates. Devin had planned out an elaborate scavenger hunt that had choices at each stop. The incredible part is that, knowing her so well, he had pre-chosen which selections Amanda would make with each card! The last stop brought them to an inside picnic where he got down on one knee and she finally realized the immensity of this romantic planned date.

Thanks for letting us capture you two, with all your love and your millions of laughs. ~Erik & Marissa

Lisa & Paul | Point Defiance Engagement

She went to Vegas with some girlfriends hoping for a fun girls weekend. He went to Vegas to hang with his friends for a getaway. Lisa & Paul didn’t know then, but the fates had in store for them the biggest Vegas win of all. Traveling the same weekend and a chance encounter led them away from gambling at the poker table. Instead they placed all their chips and bet on one another. After a fun-filled weekend Paul left Vegas, knowing he had met the queen of his heart.

Thank you Lisa & Paul for letting us capture you in the glorious PNW where you’ve become engaged and more head-over-heels in love with each other. You two are going to have a fantastic wedding, marriage, and life together -it’s that obvious. ~Erik & Marissa

Dola & David | Whidbey Island Wedding

He spotted her across the restaurant and thought he was being smooth by peeking at her when she wasn’t looking. He was instantly attracted and couldn’t stop staring. Little did David know that Dola actually saw it all in a reflection and giggled to herself over the attention. He asked her out at the end of the meal and she said yes!

Fast forward to their wedding day when Dola walked arm in arm with her mother who had flown all the way from Mongolia to be there for her daughter. Dola, dressed in a custom designed dress made by her best friend, carried flowers she’d arranged herself in this total DIY wedding. As they tied traditional Mongolian scarves around the archway and said their I do’s the joy enveloped us all while they walked back down the dock to celebrate with close friends and family.

Congratulations Dola & David! ~Erik & Marissa
