Welcome to the blog! I’m a small-town Florida girl and Army wife relocated to the Seattle Suburbs, documenting love from one coast to the other. I live for a good PNW mountain breeze, sweat pants, and local eats. Let's be friends!
If I could only tell you all of the factors that came into play in order for me to capture Adara + Tyler’s wedding at Gold Mountain Golf Club…you probably wouldn’t believe me! Ever since I met Adara at her best friend’s wedding last year, I was drawn to her energy and wanted to be her friend! She is hands down the sweetest person, always smiling and laughing!
I am SO happy the stars aligned to be able to capture their beautiful day. Tyler had me cracking up all day long…his personality equally as amazing as Adaras’ – it’s no wonder they’re the perfect pair.
Adara and Tyler’s closest friends and family gathered in the middle of the woods for the most intimate and beautiful ceremony. When I asked Adara what inspired their wedding day, this is what she said…
“We knew that we wanted our ceremony in the woods, so we hunted out venues until we found Gold Mountain Golf Club. We love the moodiness of the Washington forests, so we chose light grey as our accent color with greenery to keep to the theme of the woods.”
It truly was the most perfect day. We had sunshine, clouds, beautiful forests and donuts! The donuts were a big hit with the guests and you could say I was one happy photographer too!
Adara + Tyler – there are so many adventures coming your way this year and I have no doubt that each of you have found the perfect person to walk through each of them together! Thank you for having me there!
“First piece of advice: HIRE MEGAN! You won’t regret it Second piece of advice: We were lucky enough to find a venue that was all inclusive (tables, chairs, linens, food, alcohol, clean up except for items you bring). It truly made wedding planning so much easier and less stressful knowing that one vendor was taking care of so much. Third piece of advice: wedding planning can be fun, but it can also be stressful because of all of the expectations. When planning, remember the real reason of the wedding, to marry the love of your life.”
