Summer Weddings

[nggallery id=18] So what’s been happening over the last month?  Well, I have performed weddings indoors and out, far and near.  One of my favorite weddings was the wedding of Chelsea and Joshua.  They are a young couple living here in Ballard that contacted me many, many months ago for their Bainbridge Island wedding.  They […]

Last Minute Proposal at Sculpture Park

I recently had the pleasure of performing my first “sunrise wedding” for Tyler and Apryl.  They chose the Olympic Sculpture Park for their 5:30 a.m. nuptials.  So I set my alarm for 4:15 a.m. that morning and was up and ready to go by 5.  Unfortunately, there was cloud cover but it was still enchanting […]

I really feel for the bride who chooses her venue for her large August wedding in […]

Williows Lodge Wedding!

Set in the wine country, this beautiful country lodge offers indoor and outdoor areas that are perfect for your small or large wedding ceremony.  Joe and Nadya chose the library of the lodge and decorated it beautifully!  Nadya’s […]

Delicious Cakes For Your Event!

I just made a new contact with a baker by the name of Suzanne Rosellini.  It never ceases to amaze me how many hidden jewels there are out there — and Suzanne and her cakes are no exception!  Suzanne also bakes cupcakes, cookies, pies, etc. for parties and weddings, but so far I have only […]
