los angeles wedding, marvimon- taylor & rafael

Taylor has worked as a wedding planner for years which meant she had no shortage of wedding ideas. Although her biggest inspiration came after a conversation with her Grandma. From Taylor- “My grandmother told me about how they had a sweet afternoon wedding at their church, followed by a cake and champagne reception. And I thought, why did that ever change? That sounds AMAZING; affordable, low stress, and to the point. Since we are very practical people it seemed like the perfect solution, so cake and champagne on a Friday afternoon it was!”

After their guests left with their bellies full of the three C’s (cheese, cake and champagne) we took off from The Marvimon for a photo adventure on Olvera Street and Chinatown. It was such a different and fun experience to shoot most of our portraits after the wedding. I’m still regretting not buying that Frida Kahlo mug at a booth we passed.

snohomish wedding, french creek estates- katie & matt

From Katie about the big day- “We feel incredibly lucky that we were able to plan the day exactly how we wanted it. We wanted to throw a party, and planned the day around making sure everyone would have a good time. We wanted a causal “garden party.” The day was exactly how we wanted it, we had such a wonderful time and wish we could live the day over and over again! We gave hardback copies of the Prophet by Khahil Gigran as wedding favors because an excerpt was read during our ceremony and it’s one of my favorite books. I couldn’t have done it without my Mom. She spent countless hours ordering old copies of the Prophet off of the internet (I insisted on hardback). She stayed up many nights before the wedding putting the books together with the custom bookmarks. There were many little special touches at the wedding, and they could not have been executed without her. I had such a blast planning the wedding with my Mom. My favorite moments of the day were seeing Matt for the first time. Being married by my uncle which made the ceremony extra special and personal. The quiet minutes alone with my dad right before he walked me down the aisle. I’ll never forget the moment he looked at me and said “this is the happiest day of my life. I’m so proud of you.”

whidbey island wedding, freeland hall- kathleen & jon

In addition to having the most perfect weather, a joyous ceremony and the best dance party ever, these two raised a whole bunch of money for cancer research. They asked their guests to donate money instead of giving gifts and organized a dessert dash at their wedding. Simple breakdown of the dessert dash; you create a collection of irresistible sweets and display them on a pretty table. Add a card by each dessert explaining what makes it so awesome; from your best friend’s famous coconut birthday cake to those weird yet lucky bacon covered cupcakes. Set an envelope on each table and explain that the table with the highest donation in the envelope will be first to pick a dessert from the table of delights. Collect and tally the donations and let your jaw drop to the ground in response to the generosity of your friends and family.
