an epic wedding

A wedding is sometimes a beautiful celebration of two people deeply committed to one another who want to declare their love publicly. A wedding is sometimes a glorious occasion for two families to join together, merging their lives, their traditions, their common love for their bride and groom. A wedding is sometimes an occasion to throw an awesome party. And sometimes, a wedding is an occasion to do all three, in epic fashion. This was one such occasion. MB and Greg managed to do all three at Tierra Retreat Center in Leavenworth this summer and, believe me, it will be one that goes down in the books!!! They brought together friends and family for their destination wedding in the woods to celebrate love in all forms. Love of each other, love of friends, family, food, play, nature.  Epic is often over used, but I assure you, this was the absolute definition! Congratulations MB and Greg! So much love to you as you continue to create your epic future!

undeniably happy

Her: a generous smile, a genuine heart, and a giving spirit. Him: equally generous of smile, genuine in heart and giving of spirit. Together: undeniably happy. These elements that both Blair and Bennett have individually, combined forces on their wedding day at Brown Family Homestead to take on life and all that it has in store for these two sweet people! Blair and Bennett’s strength together seems only to be matched by their family and friends’ support for them. Documenting this kind of wedding day is not only and honor, but truly joyful for me! Thanks, Blair and Bennett, for inviting James and I to be there with you in your beautiful celebration of marriage! Congratulations!

a life in love

A life in love, all begins with one moment. And then, another moment…and another. This is how life is. You start, then you build. And soon that the act of building becomes life itself. Rachel and Matt began their lives together, in marriage a few weeks ago, with their Brown Family Homestead wedding. It began with a quick laugh, a small gesture here and there. It built, together, with hands…helping. It continued with hands…holding. Into the afternoon…with love and a kiss, and on into the evening, culminating with all that they hope to have in life together at once: unconditional love, support, laughter…even tears…and life with each other, and with the family and friends they most cherish. Thank you, Rachel and Matt for sharing your love into the world! Congratulations you two!!!

a generous kind of love

This is a very special wedding I want to share today. Not because Onteora Mountain House was beyond stunning, or because the bride was effortlessly beautiful, or because the details were all hand-made by the bride (but, of course, they were), but because of the type of people that were involved in creating this day.

When Bea first wrote to me, I thought to myself, “Have we met before?” … “if not we definitely should!” Her generous spirit and easy-going nature made me feel completely at ease. Beyond that, Bea’s conviction to help others as a human rights lawyer, as well as just a human, was so clear it jumped right off the page for me. Her description of the kind of person Dave, her fiancé, is furthered my belief that I wanted to get to know these two better. This is why I chose them as the winners of my 2014 #projectweddinggiveaway!

We met just the day before their wedding in the Catskill mountains of New York at Onteora, a wedding venue that is so well appointed, I could have just wandered for hours looking at their beautiful collection of art from around the world! I usually like to do an engagement session well before a wedding to get to know the couple and to give them some beautiful photos to document that time in their lives. In this case though, we didn’t have the chance to meet before, since they live on the east coast, and I am all the way over in the pacific northwest. I was right about Bea and Dave’s easy-going nature, I felt like I knew them from way back, and that made it super relaxing and fun! Plus, I love to travel for weddings, and am so inspired by new sites, that I felt right at home.

I am still smiling thinking about how calm Bea was working with her maid of honor and Dave’s mom to create all of the centerpieces and bouquets the day before and how Dave and his guys worked so hard to organize all of the last minute details. The efforts of everyone involved were indicative of that generous and giving spirit that Bea and Dave work to foster in their work and lives. Documenting weddings of people like Bea and Dave are hands-down my favorite. There’s a feeling that I can’t describe that just radiates from a couple like this. Thank you, Bea and Dave, for doing what you do and inviting me to be a part of it!

curating a life in love

When you step back to look at your life, what do you see? Where are you placing your efforts, your attention? I read a quote by William James a while back that said, “My experience is what I agree to attend to,” meaning: your life is made up of the things (the people, the places, the media, the hobbies) that you give your attention to, whether intentionally or unintentionally.

I am personally in the process of taking stock of what I put my efforts toward, where I place my attention. It’s opened my eyes so much to what I really value and what I waste my time on (read: the amount of time I spend on social media). But, it’s been truly therapeutic to step back from the day to day and then work to remove the things that don’t serve the kind of life I want to live and to add things that create what ultimately makes up my life.

As I witnessed Karen and Matt’s beautiful wedding celebration at Mountain Springs Lodge in Leavenworth, WA, I felt like I was seeing two very special people who really believe in the power of curating their life; of working diligently to include things (people, experiences) in their life that add value and purposely exclude the kinds of things that detract from that. In this way, they are very much an inspiration to the people in their lives. They are most definitely an inspiration to me. Karen and Matt, thank you for including me in your day. I couldn’t be happier for you!

Now I see…

You know those people in your life who are there for you, no matter what? The ones who would drop anything to help you when you need it? The friends who help you move, even if it means flying in to do it? I hope you do. Everyone needs this in their lives. When I met MB and Greg, I kind of got the impression they were those kind of people. Loyal–fiercely so. Involved–intently. Engaged–deeply (in life and in love). I am lucky to have these kinds of people in my life. And, I also feel really lucky to have met and struck up a friendship with MB and Greg, especially since I might need some help moving! Just kidding! Truly though, their kindness is infectious–it spreads, roots itself and stays with you. I am so looking forward to documenting what I know is going to a wedding to remember at Tierra Retreat Center in August!

Life in the in between

You can just sense it. Feel it, really. It’s a connection that is bonded, not by big gestures, but by subtlety. By a whisper, a glance, the small things that make up this thing we call life. Rachel and Matt are content and even most happy when life is quiet together. This is the way they love…in the in-between. There is so much beauty in that in-between and I love when I see that on people’s faces as they look at one another. My wish for these two is to take that amazing way of being they have for each other and continue to share that. It’s a gift to see how beautiful life can be in those moments. Thanks, you two, for reminding me of that!

All You Need | Christy & Tanner | Engaged!

“Love, love, love.
Love, love, love.
Love, love, love….

Nothing you can make that can’t be made.
No one you can save that can’t be saved.
Nothing you can do but you can learn how to be you in time.
It’s easy.

All you need is love.
All you need is love.
All you need is love, love.
Love is all you need.”

It’s true! And Christy and Tanner know it! Love! Love! Love! These sweet, sweet people are truly in love and truly believe in the words of this song. (Thanks, Beatles! You’re the best!)

And I LOVE watching them live this philosophy, every day! Oh, and aren’t they cute to boot?! Christy in her Kate Spade and Anthro dresses and Tanner with his 1932 Roadster! Trés chic, you two! Your Wenatchee wedding is going to be epic and I can’t wait to document it next year!!!

I am REALLY, REALLY excited to share the entire wedding with you Tuesday, but for now…a sneak peek of their gorgeous celebration!

Kurtis & Ken | The Wedding!

These two have been together and committed to one another for, what seems like forever now. It was really a matter of time before they would marry. They are partners in every way:  Partners in business, partners in travel, partners in life. And now, Kurtis and Ken have become partners officially, in marriage! It was a beautiful thing to see the many, many friends and family come together to celebrate their love at the Icicle Creek Music Center in Leavenworth, Washington!

There are SO many moments that caught me: before the ceremony, while getting ready, the way they helped each other dress; just before leaving the house, their family helping them don the boutonnieres, with lots of hugs and smiles; the moment Ken’s daughter’s, Stacy and Carrie read during their ceremony; the toasts…which, by the way got me a little teary; and then the infamous dancing by their friend’s 3-year-old son…can you say “breakdancing toddler”?!?

What a beautiful day to celebrate their beautiful love! Congratulations, Kurtis and Ken!
