When I arrived for Jeff and Cindy’s wedding rehearsal at Red Barn Studios in Chehalis, the wind was blowing like crazy.
The power at Red Barn Studios was out because of wind gusts and this did not dampen the joy of ‘walking through things.’
And while the weather may have been nuts at rehearsal, on Jeff and Cindy’s Spring wedding day, the sunshine broke out and all was very good for this beautiful couple and their 100+ guests, gathered at this enormous and lovely renovated red barn.
There was so much that I loved about Jeff and Cindy and their intention for their wedding ceremony. Not only did we share a bit of their story and offer gratitude to parents and family but a special part was a sharing by Cindy’s Grandfather, Eldon.
Jeff and Cindy ~ may you have so much happiness and good fortune as you begin your marriage adventure!
I received a note from Howard and Chanteil one day, saying ‘please marry us, simple and easy!’
And so, we did! I love Tumwater Falls Park in Thurston County for a small and intimate wedding. In addition to the spectacular water fall, the trees and setting of the park is casual and perfect for an elopement.
There is a paradox in life and it goes like this: what is big is really small. What is small is really big.
Look at these two sweet faces. Howard and Chanteil, you are so very married!
Most often, I’m surprised at what details I take away with me after a ceremony is complete.
When I arrived at Thornewood Castle for Felix and Sandra’s wedding ceremony, I found two very happy people greeting their guests. In short time, Sandra went upstairs to change into her wedding gown as I took care of pre-ceremony details to insure an easy and elegant start to ceremony.
Once the music started, Sandra walked (no, she floated!) down the vintage stairs and met her Sweetheart, Felix, at the front.
Felix and Sandra’s wedding ceremony was a mix of traditional elements with a contemporary theme – perfect for a young couple who appreciates tradition yet feels just as comfortable with all things modern.
Felix and Sandra, go live such a beautiful life together!
