So how about I start blogging this past summer’s weddings??!! I think so!
Let’s start with Sam and Barbie beautiful July wedding!
First off, you know how it was super hot here this summer? Like even the coast had record breaking heat? Well, this particular Friday happened to be the coldest day in weeks. It was refreshing and being able to snuggle a little extra with out the sweat starting to drip was nice for a change!
Sam and Barbie, both lovers of the outdoors created a perfect simplistic wedding celebrating their two loves – ocean and forest. Held at Kitsap State Park, they reserved all the cabins and a few tent sites at the park and many of the guests made a weekend of it. Their decor and style was simple and relaxed and you just know that everyone had a good time. Congrats you two!!
At the park, right were the ocean meets the evergreens, they held their ceremony and reception. It was beautiful! Their decor theme was surrounded around greenery – ferns in particular. And with a pop of color in the gorgeous center pieces, everything came together nicely.
As wedding favors, Sam and Barbie took the time to paint and bake handled mason jars for each of their guests. (I still have mine!) I thought it was a great idea!
They mingled with their guests before the wedding started, had some snacks and drinks and then walked hand in hand down the isle to their friend who had the privilege of marrying them. So sweet!
The joy I saw on their faces when they walked out of the ceremony when no one was looking (I snuck in!) was so precious and I think these two photos are some of my favorite. Oh the love!
The groom’s brother and mother made all the desserts! (sooo talented) And the catered food was delish!!
We snuck away during the reception to take their intimate photos… the favorite part of my job!
Their desserts were SO pretty (insert all the heart eye emojis) and many sweet toasts were shared!
