Salwa and Leon

Salwa and Leon were married on July 14th. Their wedding was held at Leon's parents' amazing property on Camano Island, WA. We were right on a cliff! The moody, hot summer weather cooperated, and we enjoyed incredible views of the Puget Sound and Mt. Baker. Such a great couple, beautiful Egyptian bride, fun music, dessert (pies instead of cake :) and open air dancing... And, the children had so much fun with the kitty, the chickens and the eggs...

Congratulations Salwa and Leon!

Jennifer and Dave

Jennifer and Dave were married in Jennifer's hometown of Lebanon, Oregon on June 30th. Dave is one of my husband's dearest and closest friends, and Paul was honored to be Dave's best man. Theirs was an extra special wedding for us, and I had the joy of photographing it!

We are so thankful that you've been blessed with one another! Congratulations to you both! You are true soul mates.

One of the most memorable moments of their wedding was Dave's substitute for the garter toss. In place of this more recent tradition, Dave chose one that symbolizes commitment and humility. With probably a dozen children around him, Dave removed Jennifer's sandals, and washed her feet. It was beautiful and we were humbled by your love!

Erin and Steve

Erin and Steve were married this year on the seventh day of the seventh month. According to theknot.com, 38,000 weddings were planned for 07.07.07 - three times the norm for July Saturdays. I would not have wanted to be anywhere else on this special day. Erin and Steve are two of the most friendly, fun and appreciative people one could ever meet or work with. Their families and guests reflected their vivacious personalities, and it was such a fabulous celebration.

Photographing their wedding was a gift in every way. One of the most touching moments was when Erin's father saw her for the first time in her wedding gown - just before she was to meet Steve. If every father and daughter shared such love and affection, the world would surely be better place!

The wedding and reception were held at the beautiful DeLille Cellars in Woodinville, WA. Willows Lodge provided wonderful event coordinating services, and the amazing catering was provided by Barking Frog. Everything was beautiful.

Chris of C. Charles Bowden Photography provided excellent second photographer coverage. Thank you, Chris! I love your images, and it was truly a pleasure to work with you.

Congratulations Erin and Steve! Thank you both for the privilege of photographing your wedding and our new friendship!
