These two cuties get to walk away with images they will treasure for a lifetime, and we get a good excuse to spend our day falling in love with this gallery.

From Amy Kiel Photography
…I’ve always wanted to take a couple on a hike for their engagement session. I like to think that I was being patient; waiting for the right couple to come along. But I wasn’t. And then I met Sarah+Brian. At first I didn’t think it was realistic, that maybe she didn’t want to get her hair messed up after her hair appointment. That maybe the idea of sipping on Moscow Mules at the top was a stretch. But Sarah actually had to convince me to make it happen. And I’m so glad she did. My feet were tired but my heart was so light after shooting with Sarah+Brian. This outdoorsy, sweet, lovable joksters were determined to complete the steep climp to the top and they barely broke a sweat and never looked back. Much like they are approaching their commitment to each other.
I am so thrilled to document their wedding at the Monte Cristo Ballroom in Everett, WA.

These two will make you soooo happy. They have these smiles that can only be described as contagious, and a love for each other that is palpable. You can see it in every last beautiful moment captured by Your Day Films, and on the faces of their amazing friends and family who gathered to celebrate their union. Get lost in their gorgeous wedding film, and then stay tuned for their sweet love story below.
From The Bride… My wedding was even more than we had hoped it could be. You always imagine it perfect, but you know despite all the planning, something can always go wrong. Our day was perfect. We were blessed beyond measure. The day of the wedding was perfect. David and Holly were very professional and worked with our photographer as a team. Our family and friends still comment about how contagious their smiles are and how much of a joy they were to be around. We were able to show our video at our Nebraska reception two weeks later and there were very few dry eyes in the crowd. It is perfect. They captured our special day so completely. We love our video and we love them!
From Your Day Films…When cowboy meets cowgirl, it’s a match made in heaven. Tiffany and Devyn are so cute together we can hardly stand it. After meeting each other online via the site WesternMatch.com, their relationship began first by email, then over the phone, and finally in person, when Devyn flew to Spokane to meet Tiffany face-to-face for the first time.
Their wedding day was filled with personalized touches, DIY centerpieces (and so much more!), and most importantly, two families coming together to celebrate the beginning of the next great chapter in the lives of their children. In addition to their big day, we also had the amazing opportunity to meet with Tiffany and Devyn during the week ahead, and sat down with them on the tailgate of Tiffany’s uncle’s classic Chevy pickup so that they could share their adorable love story.

I love couples who aren’t afraid to really personalize their day, and for this Seattle duo that meant a nod to their professions in the aerospace industry. Pretty cool, right? With a subtle travel motif woven in through the details, they managed to pull off a wedding with elegance + style, and Ryan Flynn captured the gallery you don’t want to miss.

From Manette Gracie Events… Kristen and Simon’s wedding was a perfect balance of whimsy, romance, ruckus and fun. Since they both work in the aerospace industry, they decided to play with a vintage travel motif throughout the event. This was potentially poignant paired with the groom’s South American heritage, and the many international guests who travelled for the celebration.
They honored this throughout the event– with items like their map guestbook, South American table numbers and Simon’s grandfather’s prayer shawl on their homemade chuppah. The couple also chose to include a South American inspired Hora Loca toward the end of the event, where the wedding party donned festive party gear, which they then brought down in baskets for the rest of the guests.
Kristen and Simon stayed true to themselves as well. Both being fabulous dancers, they chose an inspired first dance routine, and then continued to dance until the lights came up, well past midnight.
Simon and Kristen’s charisma and positive attitudes shone throughout, despite the day’s only slight hiccup– a drizzly Seattle spring day. Instead of grumbling, the two grabbed their wedding party, and umbrellas, and hit the city streets for photos. This is reflected in a beautiful image of Kristen as she is about to depart their shuttle, all smiles, as her bridesmaids pop umbrellas and wait for her to join them.
