Feel free to cozy up with your favorite beverage (if you're like me, then maybe it's an espresso over ice with a splash of cream, or a warm matcha latte if it's cold outside!) and stay awhile. This is my place to share not just beautiful weddings or sessions, but to share my life. My hope is through this, you'll get to know a bit more about me and all the beautiful people that make it worth living!
I’m sitting at Starbucks watching the leaves change colors before my eyes to what is currently this sort of warm currant tone and feeling a growing-every-second baby smack his knee right into my rib cage. No really, even my midwives said they haven’t seen a belly move like mine has in a really long time. I’m not sure if I should be nervous or comfortable with that, haha. All that to say, this blog post has been a few weeks in coming, but due to some unforeseen pregnancy difficulties and navigating life, I guess it means good things come to those who wait? ;) Ryan and Kristen’s wedding at Tsillan Cellars last month was one of my last of this 2018 wedding season and it.was.goooooooooood. What a way to end a season with their romantic almost-fall day that was literally perfect.
From the most incredible wedding party and guests to a romantic Tuscan setting tucked right into central WA, to incredible florals done once again by Lynn Tutle and Ellie Haisch’s flawless coordinating, Ryan and Kristen’s day was dreaaaaaamy. I spent the entire day on a work date with my hottie hubs which is always a treat, and only the best Jed Gossman kept all of the guests entertained throughout the entire evening. Seriously, I could go on for days about Lake Chelan and its wedding vendors. I’m SO incredibly privileged to work each wedding weekend alongside SO many talented artists and this year was without a doubt, the very best yet. I cannot wait for this next season of not just weddings but TWO kids (whaaaaaaat!?) and trying to figure out this whole work-from-home-mom life. I love love love this season of life but man, this pregnant mama is ready for a nap. ;)
Ryan and Kristen, thank you so much for giving Nathan and I the huge honor of getting to know you both in this season of your lives!!! We love you guys!!! Kristen, you were THE most stunning bride, and I know your husband would say the same :) Ryan, thank you for being the best groom ever and for both being so willing to run down dusty roads to get the best golden hour portraits. Ellie, Lynn, Sandy, Jed, and to all of the other artists who worked to create this incredible day, you are amazing!!! I am so thankful for each of you guys! Enjoy reliving this beautiful day!!!
