Samantha & Luke – Winter Wedding | Snohomish

Do you ever watch a moment that doesn’t belong to you that still makes you cry? Sometimes a great movie makes you feel like you’re the main character feeling those feelings. That’s how it felt watching Samantha walk towards Luke for their first look. When Samantha & Luke told us they wanted to do a first look we were thrilled! Timing-wise for their wedding day it just made sense. Luke was waiting with his groomsmen and their combined families at the bottom of a staircase. When Samantha walked down you could just see that it hit her, she was getting married to the man of her dreams and it was happening today! She walked up to him so emotional that the whole crowd could feel her excitement. It was a special moment and we’re so happy we were there!

 Luke wasn’t just dapper in his appearance with cane, hat and gloves – he also acted the perfect gentleman when he dropped to one knee in the middle of the ceremony to deliver his own vows straight from the heart. Tears escaped from Samantha, but she was all smiles, especially after being announced husband & wife! Afterwards, her brother Matthew excitedly told us that he finally had a brother as we all watched on for the couples first dance, full of sweetness and love.

Congratulations Samantha & Luke!

Sjolseth Family – Gusty Day | Green Lake

Seattle has given a nice welcome to the Sjolseth family, who moved here from Arizona – we’ve had the sunniest, driest summer/fall in so long! Finally the wet season has set in, but they said they’re conditioned for it because in Arizona it’s necessary to keep the AC on almost all year. Lucky for us the weather forecasted 100% rain, but when we met at Green Lake there were blue skies and sun…maybe these former Arizonians brought the nice weather with them! It was an incredibly gusty morning, but this family was just happy to be together chasing after their two year old and laughing with one another. We are so happy to meet you and welcome you to the Northwest Sjolseth Family!


Thank you Sjolseths!

Debbie Sjolseth - What a beautiful family!

Linda Stone Schrimsher - Hope your new adventure is fun and rewarding? I know how hard all of you work at everything you do. Enjoy the Great Northwest !!

Fun Day – The Ciccarellis | Seattle Center

For thanksgiving we took a few days off to be with family. We had family fly to Seattle from the midwest and California to gather for the holiday and to just spend quality time together. We planned several days to show this great area, including Pike’s Place, hiking, Owen beach, some of our favorite eateries, and holiday festivities at the Seattle Center – watching ice sculpting, listening to a holiday chorus, and ice skating!

Of course Erik is extremely athletic and I have no hand-eye coordination whatsoever. Did I mention I also lock my knees when it comes to any sort of inlining? Erik, the sweet husband he is, held my hand and basically dragged me around the rink so that I wouldn’t have to just walk along the edge gripping the wall. I have to admit that with his help I was able to skate on my own a bit towards the end. I asked my mom to hold my purse and told her she could play with our camera so she took these of us! I have to admit here that I never knew Erik could jump, turn, or speed skate until now.

Lisa Henry - Fun!
