Romantic Washington Light House Engagement

You guys, I can’t – This engagement session is just TOO cute, I mean will you just look at those pups! Giving true meaning to the term puppy love, Alex & Jake planned the ultimate engagement session complete with a lighthouse backdrop that’ll have you mesmerized. It’s the sweetest lil’ session we ever did see and thanks to Blue Rose Photography we’ve got it all to share in The Vault!

From Blue Rose Photography Alex & Jake met us on a beautiful fall day down in Gig Harbor Wa. They grew up in that area together and it had special meaning to them. We found a cute little lighthouse on a private peninsula and walked around playing on the beach with their two adorable dogs. I really loved the outfits they picked out for their shoot and so I know their wedding will be stylish and beautiful as well. Cant wait for their August 2016 wedding!

From Blue Rose Photography… Sarah & Jonathan got married on a gorgeous August day in the San Juan Islands. They said I do at the Roche Harbor Resort near Friday Harbor. Jonathan is an Air Traffic Controller and Sarah is a graphic designer. Sarah designed her own invitations and even had a custom font made for their wedding. The font was used in a wood slat they used for their guest book and will be used on their album as well. Since they are both from different places originally, Florida and Minnesota, they blended sand from both states during their ceremony to unite them as one. After the ceremony guests tossed lavender to congratulate the couple. Sarah had the cutest hand painted champagne glasses for her bridesmaids that she got off Etsy. Their Kukuruza popcorn favors were a huge hit as well. One of my personal favorite moments form the wedding was taking their portraits on a giant yacht at sunset!

From The Bride…We spent September 5, 2015 in heaven. Enveloped in the clouds, surrounded by the people we love most and in the arms of each other. Our mountaintop-wedding day took place on the coldest and most magical Spokane, Washington summer day imaginable.

Chas and I knew that the historic Vista House, a rustic stone structure perched on the summit of Mount Spokane, would be the ideal setting for our intimate wedding. We saw it’s wild beauty, hazy views, and graceful simplicity as the perfect canvas for our happily ever after. We envisioned the empty, old building, built lovingly out of the mountain’s stone by the CCC in 1934, coming to life as the host of our elegant, untamed party. It was the prefect representation of us.

Chas and I met on our first day of kindergarten but, despite growing up together on a small island in the Puget Sound of Washington State, it wasn’t until years after we’d left that we fell in love. Back in our hometown during a summer break between college terms we realized that all the things we have in common, and all the things we don’t fit perfectly together.

Between the two of us our interests are vast and varied. As an interior designer and stylist I love beautiful things, art, flowers and the feeling I get when I’m in the midst of a creative project. Chas’ love of the rugged outdoors, fishing, hiking and challenging himself make him passionate about his career as a fisheries biologist. There are also so many things we both love: our love of the changing seasons, friendly competition, spending time with people we love, our darling pets, enjoying nature, all things food, exploring new places and, of course, each other. We wanted our wedding to hit those notes and to truly and uniquely represent us individually and together as future husband and wife.

We let our imaginations run wild during the wedding planning process. After being lucky enough to secure the venue (the State of Washington had just decided to allow the Vista House be rented for events such as ours!)! We had to find amazing vendors who were just as passionate and crazy as us. It took little convincing to get the creative people we worked with on board. Photos were taken, maps and diagrams were drawn and slowly and surely our lavish mountain affair was lovingly planned.

The week leading up to the wedding the ever-changing forecast kept us on our toes and we all were praying for a clear day. The morning of September 5th was miserably cold and wet. From the grand windows of the Historic Davenport Hotel my bridesmaids and I could see that our beloved mountaintop had been devoured by a swirling mass of clouds and rain. Even so, everyone’s hearts had never been lighter. We put on our gowns, gathered our flowers, and delightedly consented to the fact that no matter how much hairspray we used, our hair was going to frizz. Up on the mountain preparations were well underway, rental trucks came and went, handmade garlands of mountain cedar were hung, heaters were roaring, the wedding platform my dad built was assembled, the wild floral centerpieces my mom sister and I made were set upon the tables and a generator buzzed away lighting the chandelier that Chas and I had found on one of our frequent wedding antique shopping trips. Last minute decisions were made and plans were improvised due to the storm. Our hero vendors donned thick coats and braved on.

As we drove up the mountain the frigidly rainy day became a misty wonderland. Wispy threads of disappointment in the weather were replaced with awe. We found ourselves in a heavenly dream and were enchanted by it. The Vista house was bedecked and glowing, lively with the celebration and humming with the joy of our family and friends who pitched in to make our vision come to life. When Chas and I saw each other for the first time, dressed to be wed, in the middle of that scene, we felt the electricity of our love of the love around us.

In a burst of merriment we decided to hold our ceremony outdoors after all and piling throw blankets high we invited our guests to make themselves cozy during our vows. Chas gallantly wrapped me in his tuxedo jacket mid way through the ceremony when he saw me tremble from the cold and the warmth of our sprits continued throughout the evening. We dined on the most delicious food and drink, seafood hors d’oeuvres made with Dungeness crab Chas’ family caught, halibut and lamb, blackberry spritzers, champagne and our favorite Lemon Chiffon cake. The Vista House remained wreathed in the finest mist that day, that broke once only for the faintest moment to show a glimpse of a lake far in the distance and lifted just as the night had hit full swing. Frost clung to the windows but inside we celebrated merrily. It wasn’t how we imagined our wedding to be, we couldn’t have planned for that misty magic. We were blessed with a day that was a perfect dream, a summertime winter wonderland, and absolute heaven.
