JASON+NICOLE | WHITE SALMON

Couples like this remind me of why I do what I do.  

It's really easy for me to start to feel a little burned out by late September.  But as soon as you spend 30 seconds with Nicole and Jason, you feel energized...inspired...hopeful.  They have a love and spirit that's just really contagious and positive.

Nicole couldn't stop peeking through the window...constantly amazed and near tears as she named all the guests who walked in...genuinely nervous and excited as she told me about each guest.  And that excitement only grew as she and Jason exchanged vows and rings.  As the night went on, the excitement morphed into laughs, tears, more laughs and some great dancing.  As it should.

Jason and Nicole -- thank you, thank you, thank you.  You guys throw a great party and I wish you the very best on your new life.


CY+KIMBERLY | BRIDAL VEIL LAKES

One of the cool things in life is to realize that there are amazing places around you -- sometimes you've lived your whole life just miles from them -- and you never knew they existed.  Bridal Veil Lakes is a breathtaking setting and the perfect backdrop for Cy and Kimberly's wedding.  Amongst their friends and family, they exchanged their own vows and celebrated with a canoe ride on the lake as the sun began to set.  It was a sublime moment and the perfect way to start their new life together.

Cy and Kimbo...and Captain!  Thanks so much for the honor or capturing your day.  Congrats your marriage and I wish you all the best.
