One, Two, Three ... It is the day I marry Thee!


W
hen I see this photo, I smile from ear to ear.  Corinna and Ryan are so very happy.  And we are very lucky to be around this much happiness on a regular basis.  It is quite a gift. 




 

The bride and groom were the last couple to wed at the Weyerhaeuser Estate in Tacoma.  It is an incredible historic venue and has a magnificent view of the Sound.  



Corinna and Ryan selected a reading entitled "All I Want," which they alternated reading to each other.  One of my favorite passages is
"All I want is to grow old with you...
to watch our life unfold,
our dreams, one by one, come true."



 And, of course, The Kiss!














 Then it was time to celebrate.












The table settings were beautiful.  (I'm partial to the natural look.)


The candy table had something for everyone.









And the photo booth offered tons of fun possibilities. 


"Thank you Pat, for truly an AMAZING ceremony!! It was just perfect for us. We cannot thank you enough for officiating our ceremony, meeting with us for pre-wedding sessions, helping us through the process, and for celebrating our day as a special guest!
~ Corinna and Ryan

A very sweet amd memorable day.

Wishing Corinna and Ryan just as sweet and memorable life together!! 




Thanks to all the wedding professionals who helped make the couple's dreams a reality.

One Plus One Equals True Love!

There really is something about love that is magical.  When I see couples walking hand in hand or stopping for a hug or a kiss, it warms my heart.  (OK, PDA of this sort is fine by me.)

Jeremy and Brittney are definitely in love!  We got together recently to focus on the wording of their ceremony.  Of course, we get to hear how the two of them met and fell in love.  (We really like that part.)

The two are going to celebrate their good fortune this fall at Hidden Meadows.  So happy they have found their "one" and looking forward to continuing to co-create a perfectly them ceremony.

Love Story - Cute, Cute Quote!


Isn't this a great quote?

Love stories are so special.  Kent and I enjoy listening to each couple we meet and hearing their "stories."  There is just something wonderful and soul-heartening in each one.

It also reminds us of "our story."  This always brings a smile to our faces.

Love truly is beautiful!

Grand Ridge Manor to Host Andres and Danielle's Wedding!


Love began at the gym for Andres and Danielle.  He was working there and Danielle was taking a small step into gym life.  It was perfect!  Danielle soon made friends with several ladies preparing for a body building competition and decided to do the same.




A great incentive was seeing that big, beautiful smile on Andres' face every time she worked it.  Now that's inspiration.

Soon the two were making small talk near the vending machine, which led to lunch ... and, well, the rest is history.

In a few weeks, the two will become "husband and wife" at Grand Ridge Manor and will begin their life together as a married couple.  Wishing them the very best!!

Destination Wedding in the Works for Emma and Alex

We love destination weddings.  Just the fact that people are coming to the Puget Sound area and celebrating with the bride and groom over a period of a few days makes this type of wedding celebration very personal and special.

For Alex and Emma, they decided on the Semiahmoo Resort in Blaine, WA.  

As you can see, the two are pretty excited about sports and about their upcoming wedding.  It will be a pleasure to help them craft a ceremony that suits them as perfect as their location.

Congratulations!!!

Marriage, Coffee Grinder and Wooden Egg

OK ... there is a story to this photo.

The coffee grinder was a present given to Kent's parents for their wedding in 1932.  It has been consistently used for decades.  When Kent inherited the grinder, he did a bit of refurbishing (he was an engineer in a former phase of life) and the grinder has continued to be of service for over another 40 years.  Can you believe we've been together that long?

The canning jar with the French Roast coffee (or Green Tea) was a wedding favor from Chris and Jenn, who wed this weekend at Wallace Falls Lodge.   It fit perfectly on the grinder (and French Roast is Kent's favorite).

Atop that is a wooden egg with the couple's name burned into it.  It now a home as part of the coffee grinder collection.  Both are welcome favors and much appreciated.  Many thanks to Jenn and Chris ... and happiness all their years together!
