So many memories…

AngWedAngela and Brandon have known each other for many years.  They were buddies back in the day.  Isn’t it fascinating how life unfolds? Their friends and family gathered from all over the United States.  Seattle’s sun shined on us.  There was much to celebrate.  For instance, Brandon and Angela’s parents have been together for over 66 combined married years.  What a gift to the bride and groom that is!  Special thanks to Megan at A Kurant Event.  So calm; such a fun person. Lots of dreams came true that day at the Edgewater Hotel!


Rob and Thomas – all the way from Portland!

rbthmbrkThese two share roots all the way back to Lincoln, Nebraska.  Their history has spanned many years and a few different states.  Now they’ve chosen Seattle as their destination wedding spot.  Their families will join us at the Edgewater Hotel for a nuptial celebration – and a reunion! The details are stunning – but something tells me their families may outshine their jaw-dropping endeavors!

Chuck and Charlie: Vow Renewal in Mess Dress

ChkChrlMess dress is the military term for the formal evening dress worn in the mess or at other formal occasions. Very odd name for Chuck’s beautiful uniform!  And Charlie’s dress was it’s ideal counterpart.  I love this candid photo that I snapped of Charlie admiring Chuck just before their Vow Renewal…such a look of admiration.  It was an international affair that included their childhood friends and High-ranking Military Mentors.  Congratulations (again) Chuck and Charlie!  No doubt your adventures shall continue!

A Day of Miracles…

The challenges were overwhelming at times.  But the result was astounding! grlsHere is my beautiful bride Jill, her lovely mother, Diana and talented daughter Ryanne. This wedding was scheduled so that Mother Diana could share in the joy NOW, as she is an active cancer patient.  But it was our groom’s mother, Coleen that spent the week in the hospital!  Our Mother of the Groom was released just in time for the sun to shine brightly last Saturday and join in the festivities!  Ryan and Jill have waited NINE years for this wedding, so Ryanne (who is 13 years old!) sang “At Last” as Jill entered.  It was potent!

Just yesterday from Jill:  Mary, There aren’t enough words to describe the joy in Ryan and my heart.  Saturday was a miraculous demonstration of God’s love and gifts in our lives.  I am so thankful and appreciative of everything that came together on Saturday to make for such a special day.  YOU were such a LARGE part of that day’s blessings.  As I had mentioned when we first met, second to having a small and intimate wedding it was most important who married us.  You were PERFECT and such a gift.  Thank you!!!!  With love and appreciation….   Jill

Jill and Ryan – it was such an privilege to work – and play with you both!!!
