Ryan and Corinna to Wed at Weyerhaeuser Estate

Corinna and Ryan's engagement photos - Jason Comerford Photography



I'm so excited about Corinna and Ryan's wedding.  First, because of the couple.

Second, because I've already had a chance to meet their moms and really enjoyed their company.

Third, because this summer is the first summer I'll officiate at Weyerhaeuser Estate.




Corinna and Ryan have been together for six years, got engaged over Valentine's weekend in San Francisco (isn't that romantic?), and plan to wed in the garden at Weyerhaeuser Estate overlooking the water in September.  That is a great time of the year so it should be absolutely beautiful (fingers crossed for great weather!).
 
Congratulations on your engagement. May this be a wonderful time for you both.

Thanks to Jason Comerford for the engagement photo!

Bicyclists and Blanca Lake Wilderness Proposal!


Ashley and Adam on bicyclng trip in Belgium and Amsterday - Kent Buttars, Seattle Wedding OfficiantMeet Ashley and Adam.  At our first meeting, they biked to our place.  Of course, Kent loved them immediately (as did I) because he too shares a passion for human-powered transport.  

This is a photo of the two on their bicycling tour in Belgium and Amsterdam, which was a fantastic experience!










It is obvious the two are destined to be together.  Let me tell you a bit about the proposal.
 Adam proposed to Ashley at Blanca Lake - Kent Buttars, Seattle Wedding Officiant
Now the hike to Blanca Lake isn't long, but it's not easy. For the first three miles the trail ruthlessly climbs 2700 feet.  Then, the trail advances up a slope of luxuriant old-growth Douglas-fir and hemlock forests. After another three miles of incessant switchbacking and climbing, there is a small gap and then you start dropping to the big cirque housing big Blanca Lake.

So why was Adam being excessive, carrying an inflatable raft along with all the overnight backpacking equipment.  The reason became clear: he used the raft to row the two of them to a secluded meadow on the other side of the lake ... and then he proposed. 

Now that is going to great lengths to proclaim your love.  Good job, Adam!

The two are planning to wed in September in Leavenworth, of course.  

Very happy for the two!

Two Great Places for Engagement Photos in Seattle

Christina and Johnny's engagement photo at Green Lake - Patricia Stimac, Seattle Wedding Officiant













Engagement sessions can be quite fun!  Johnny and Christina selected Marissa and Eric of Cicarelli Photography to capture this special moment in their lives.

Two locations were selected for the photos:  Green Lake (we are located quite near and think it is a great place) and Pike Place Market (what's more Seattle than that?).

At the lake, there are so many wonderful nooks and crannies ... and a variety of habitats plus the lake itself.  You're sure to find a spot that is just yours.

And then there is the Market.  What a vibrant place that is!

In springtime the flowers are so amazing!








And what about Johnny and Christina?  The two met online while Johnny was in Afghanistan. They talked for hours at a time over Skype when Christina was off work and Johnny had down time.

It soon became apparent that they shared something special and wanted to pursue a relationship. A first date was scheduled for the very day Johnny returned to Washington. Long before the proposal in November, the two knew they were going to get married.

And don't Corey and Amanda look great?






This photo I absolutely love!  The approach to Seattle by the viaduct is stunning ... and this photo proves it!

How Romantic is This? An Intimate Wedding on a Seattle Houseboat!

Kristina and Jille vacationing in Iceland - Patricia Stimac, Seattle Wedding Officiant
I recently finished reading a romance/mystery book that was set on a Seattle houseboat.  Very shortly after that, I was contacted by Kristina and Jille ... and guess what ... their ceremony is going to take place on a houseboat.  

Love synchronicity!


The two are planning an intimate August wedding.  It will be fantastic, I'm sure!

Two Hearts to Join in Wedding at the Sanctuary at Admiral

Anthony and Jamie will wed at the Sanctuary at Admiral - Posted by Patricia Stimac, Seattle Wedding Officiant


Anthony and Jamie will wed in September.

The two are full of life ... and love.

Each has their own interests.  Anthony is very passionate about music, and produces and performs his own electronic dance music in his spare time. Jamie loves cooking, reading, tarot and crystal healing. They enjoy being creative and artistic together. Jamie and Anthony also share an interest in fashion. 

The two met at a music event in Seattle in 2005 via mutual friends.  They were friends for several years before starting to date in 2007.  At their first date, it was clear they were meant for each other ... and have been inseparable ever since.  

They have two adorable "fur babies," Freeway and Juno, and enjoy spending as much time as possible with their cats. 

Anthony proposed to Jamie over Christmas of 2013 in the presence of both of their families. 

Now, with joy and excitement, they are planning to tie the knot in a fun and quirky Day of the Dead themed wedding.   They will marry on the seventh year anniversary of their first date!

Kent and I are looking forward to officiating as a couple for Jamie and Anthony.
