Courtney & Scott are the sweetest couple and had the sweetest wedding planned up on Orcas Island. A couple of weeks before the wedding we went over to Alki for a little engagement session- right away you can tell how in love they are! We had so much fun dancing and twirling around the beach on the perfectly sunny day! (my favorites are of course the shadow photos!!
The Wedding Day!!
It was a rainy October afternoon – but nothing could dampen this party!! There were about 30 or so guests and the ceremony was at the cutest Victorian Valley Chapel not far from where the ferry drops you off. The reception was out at the Moran State Park on the other side of the island under a picnic shelter it was catered by none other than our favorite caterer Kate Thomson of Seasonal Palate. This wedding was like no other wedding I’ve ever been to – we went for a little walk to do some evening light portraits, did a little fishing, and when the sun set on the water and Scott’s father brought out his gift to them. A hand made row-boat!! It was a picture perfect ending to their perfect wedding day.
Here are a few of my favorite shots – enjoy!!
Thank you to Kate & Kevin for introducing me to Courtney & Scott!!
Cousin Jason (aspiring foot model) & fabulous designer girlfriend Jessamy were a riot – inspiring an impromptu portrait (jumping)session!! This delicious cake was made by the youngest & most talented pastry chef I’ve ever met! – Ellen Thomson!
