One badminton game was enough to change their lives forever. Charlie had never played before, but when her friends invited her to go play she agreed. Steven competed often and happened to be there on the same day. After playing a few rounds with her friends Charlie heard her name called that she was up next and her opponent was Steven. She hadn’t written her name on the board, but agreed to the game anyway. The two began talking, had a round of badminton, and that was it! A mix-up on a badminton court turned into true love for Charlie & Steven.
The day was absolutely perfect. With rain having swept through the area the day before Sarah & André awoke to a gorgeous, sunny day to celebrate the beginning of their forever.
In André, Sarah had found the man that checked all her must-have boxes. On their wedding day she dressed and had her long, red hair curled and down for her first look with her soon to be husband. André did not disappoint, with a huge grin and arms wide he hugged Sarah and told her how beautiful she was, now and always, making their first look one to remember.
In Sarah, André found the woman he’d move mountains for (or at least move across mountains for). Relocating to Seattle to be with her was one of the best decisions he’s ever made. Before he even glimpsed Sarah walking down the aisle the tears began to flow. He realized that in a few short moments he’d be marrying the woman of his dreams.
In each other they found the perfect partner- a dance partner, a work-out partner, a travel partner and so much more.
Thank you Sarah & André for showing everyone at your wedding what it means to find the love of your life and for letting us capture it all. ~Erik & Marissa
It must be said that this wedding turned into one giant dance party, including dance-offs, making it officially one of the coolest wedding celebrations of all time.
Thank you to everyone who made Sarah & André’s wedding day literally perfect in every way.

Alicia & Jon were literally meant to be together, it just took them a few near misses to finally meet when the time was right! They both went to Miami University (in Ohio), had mutual friends, had some of the same college experiences on campus, but missed each other. Jon played baseball and Alicia played softball, but obviously their teams were never opponents so they missed each other again.
Finally, thousands of miles away from where they had so much in common, the two met quite by accident. A mutual friend was moving to Seattle and contacted them both separately to get together, since the two of them were the only people she knew who lived here. Over lunch, discussing the best Seattle spots and giving advice to their new Seattleite friend, something unexpected sparked between Alicia and Jon. That unexpected something was love, but they wouldn’t realize it until much later, after many dates and conversations about all the people they both knew and all the things they loved about Miami.
Now they get to share all their new Seattle experiences with each other and we couldn’t be happier to be a part of it. Alicia & Jon, we cannot wait for your wedding next year! ~Erik & Mariss
If Alex and Casey’s wedding had to be defined in one word, it would be FUN! Everything about their day revolved around fun, excitement, and happiness. Their sunny day started off with such a sweet first look on the pier in downtown Bellingham. After joining their bridal party and donning sunglasses the celebrating and fun really began.
The sunglasses stayed for their dreamy ceremony in a field at Selene Homestead during sunset, where there was plenty of laughing, jokes, and lots of cheers from their guests, especially during their first kiss…the longest one we’ve ever seen! The party kicked off with loads of games like cornhole, giant jenga, flip cup, and hula hooping. Twinkling lights lit up the dance floor and the kids in attendance were double-fisting the delicious homemade dessert.
Alex & Casey’s wedding day was truly filled with fun, loving family, incredible friends, and a day of celebration. Thank you, Alex and Casey, for having us there for one of the most memorable weddings we’ve ever been a part of! ~Erik & Marissa
We love that Alex & Casey’s moms snuck into this first look shot!
Okay, we’re biased, but first looks are the best!
The family made these bouquets themselves, which we just absolutely loved.
Alex’s dad was allowed to wear this custom-designed Alex & Casey hat if he promised to smile in all the photos. What a deal!
For Alex’s two separate head pieces (one for the ceremony and one for the reception) and belt, pieces were used from her grandmother’s dress and incorporated for her ‘something old’.
These one of a kind mugs were designed by Casey’s mom for the entire bridal party, cheers!
The girl team was pretty pumped about their next round of flip cup.
This wedding was definitely a labor of love! Thank you to the family and friends of Alex & Casey who helped make their day one they’ll never forget…

When we first met Doug and Christine over coffee they told us about their new home, the location for their backyard wedding. As they were explaining all the details from the view overlooking the water to the pristine backyard we could hardly wait to see this idealistic palace. It was exactly how they described it…perfect, and so lovely for their intimate wedding.
This was their special day and everything was right out of a story book. A beautiful bride, handsome groom, sunny Seattle weather, a few frisky pups and all their loved ones around. As Christine walked down the porch steps to meet her man her dress glistened in the sun. When it came time for the vows Christine said she should have kept it short because she’s the crier in the relationship. Instead, she wrote a list of 10 things she loved about Doug and made it through her entire stack of notecards eloquently, if not with a few tears added. For Doug’s part he had everyone laughing and while the two were sharing words their two dogs came back from a walk and eagerly watched the ceremony from the porch.
The rings were passed around to each and every guest to share love and say a few words so that everyone was involved in the ring ceremony. A kiss later and two extremely happy people left the arbor and had a mimosa cheers with their guests. As we escaped with the bride and groom to Discovery Park and the beach right around the corner from their home the reality was that these two people had just committed themselves to a lifetime of happiness, adventure, and a lot of love.
Thank you Doug and Christine for letting us witness such a special day. (We’re glad the eagles kept the noise down for your ceremony.) ~Erik & Marissa
