Holly & Will’s wedding-July 16th.
On a soggy morning in July I caught the ferry from Seattle to Bainbridge Island. It was pretty, quiet and fun to watch the tourists.
I arrived a few minutes early so I was able to dive right in with the detail shots. Will, the groom created the boutonniers our of pounded/shaped copper. The rings were custom done by local jewelers
Will’s just a fun guy in general. He was in prime form the morning of and I wouldn’t have had it any other way.
Holly found her gown on Craigslist if you can believe it. It was fantastic! The color, the detail-loved it.
Hanging out with the girls while the got ready was so much fun. The house was a disaster but the photography was awesome. The hair piece was created by a friend of the brides.
girl!-look at the back. hot, hot, hot.
What’s not to be happy about?!…
This kind of sums up the guys-there was a whole lot of grab ass going on. Never a dull moment that’s for sure.
The girls were proper and demure as they should be. Well for the moment at least.
Noah, Noah, Noah-not to be left out. Who would leave him out, he’s going to bring them down the isle with Ukulele music.
We were all set up to do family portraits in the forest when first Holly spied her Grandpa and then Will his Grandma. These are the moments we all live for. Or should.
Forest details around the venue; Kitsap Memorial State Park.
Both Holly and Will are creative. Holly spent months putting the final touches together. They all came together as planned!
Holly and her Dad share a chuckle over the Flower girl.
Holly doesn’t sew, but that didn’t stop her from creating a lovely bunting to hang at the ceremony site. The yellows and oranges really popped against the blues in the sky.
Will is an artist by trade and a part time teacher-he sandblasted each of these bottles with the letter B for their last name. They were filled with water and corked, ready to be opened and used or taken home as a keepsake. Holly created the “flowers” out of sticks tissue paper glued on in simple jars with pebbles.
Thankfully instead of the usual salmon they opted for wood fired Pizza from Rolling Fire. Delicious! And how cute is a heart shaped pizza, I mean come on!
Fun, unique, simple and creative. The cake table set up worked so well in this space I just loved it. Simple flowers in common jars placed in, on, and around stakes of books.
First dances always get me. Especially when there is amazing back lighting!
They had a do-it-yourself photo-booth with super fun props. I just had to steal a few, couldn’t help myself.
End-of-the-day sun is always the best! I can’t say that enough.
Instead of the traditional guest book they opted to have guest write them a note on an old fashioned typewriter.
The next morning I woke up early, stepped outside of my cabin with a fresh cup of coffee and watched the birds on the water. What a lovely way to start the day.
