Check out this majestic Puget Sound Wedding! The venue, The Edgewater House, is located about an hour outside of Seattle and situated directly on the water with a verdant forest backdrop.
As a Landscape Architect and musician respectively, Nicole and Will are a true power couple. When we met for the first time, it was clear that their wedding in Georgia was going to be a heartfelt and hand-crafted celebration. And we were not disappointed. To begin with, their venue was a dilapidated brick manor surrounded by a wide range of landscapes, from carefully sculpted english gardens to a towering grass forest. Nicole helped design her stunningly simple gown and hand-crafted the invitations. For their first dance, they busted out a semi-choreographed creation that put the older-generation to shame. These two exude kindness, sincerity and spirit. This was clear as they danced the night away with their pack of friends and family. As the party came to an end, guests were treated to a homemade hot-sauce party favor for the trip home.

On the day of their private ceremony, Rachel and Justin kickstarted the morning with coffee from Handlebar Coffee Roasters. Despite the persistent rain, they kept warm and dry inside this quaint cafe. The rest of morning was just as warm. On the short walk to the venue, their golden-doodle Clementine joined in on the fun. The courthouse was practically empty because of the wet weather, which gave us our choice of places to enjoy the solitude. Congratulations, you two - we cannot wait to celebrate with you and your families in Ojai this summer!
From their renowned weekend brunch gatherings to their elopement in Mexico City, Christina and Jon know how to throw one hell of a party. At All(Most) Studio & Gallery, it was a fun-filled night of celebrating with lots of family and friends. The couple, along with lots of help from their families, completely transformed the blank-slate space with handmade banners, string lights, a mariachi band and a magician - all thanks to the vision of the incredibly talented and organized Christina. Congratulations Jon and Christina - we can't wait 'til the next party you throw!
When every single person that you invite to your wedding RSVP's yes, it means you're a special couple. Renée and Ian are that kind of couple. All the friends and family invited to this beautiful West Michigan backyard wedding not only attended, but in many cases chipped in to make this a truly heartfelt evening. Close girlfriends arranged the florals, Renée's Aunt officiated, many helped set-up the tables & chairs, dogs and kids helped forage for sticks to line the aisle, Detroit friends DJ'd the dancing + karaoke, and two talented photographer friends took a few candid film photos throughout the evening. Check them out - Noah Elliott Morrison and Mark Sommerfeld. Renée and Ian added plenty of their own touches as well including hand-drawn invitations, polaroid thank you cards and some incredible handmade plates and linens for the entire head table. See the full gallery here.

We traveled to Portland to shoot Jenny and Tam's wedding and got JUST enough rain to get a fun umbrella shot - that's it! The rest of that Saturday was perfectly-clear skies for a perfectly-lovely wedding. Can't even begin tell you just how much fun we had photographing these two together with all their friends and family. Jenny and Tam put so much work into every little detail and it shows!
Make sure to check out the rest of our photos from that day.
