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

Sarah & André | Maroni Meadows Wedding

2014-09-09_013

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

Alicia & Jon | Downtown Seattle Engagement

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

Alex and Casey | Selene Homestead Wedding

2014-09-02_036

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

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’.
