Jill and Mike

We met in late August of 2007. A few weeks later, Jill, Mike and I left Seattle for New York City. Could there be many better places than Central Park for an engagement session? It was amazing! And, unusually hot in NYC that weekend. High 80s in October?! I think it was a sign of things to come... Jill and Mike were married in Seattle on one of the hottest days of the year. It was in the 90s, and Seattle residents only see the 90s on an average of three times a year. So, we were really HOT. But, it was a gorgeous, cloudless day. And, we had one of the best views in the city: the Olympics, the Sound and the Seattle skyline. The evening was perfect and included wonderful toasts, a Scottish bagpiper at sunset, a great band and one of my very favorite cakes - ever.

Jill and Mike incorporated some of Seattle's most beautiful architecture into their wedding celebration. Preparations at The Farimont Olympic Hotel, ceremony at the Chapel of St. Ignatius for their beautiful Coptic Orthodox service, and reception at The Golf Club at Newcastle. This combination is difficult to match.

Jill is such an elegant woman, and Mike is a true gentleman. A very refined and classy couple. And, what a fun wedding party!

Congratulations Jill and Mike - on your marriage and your new life together in Philly! I appreciate you both so much.

Here are a few of my favorites.

Oona and Jamey (and Willa)

Destination: Tofino, British Columbia. This was my second time to beautiful Tofino. If you've never been, it's definitely worth the 12-hour drive!

The weather (will it rain?) is always such a big issue in the Pacific Northwest. This weekend was no different as we had torrential downpours three days before the wedding. We were blessed with not only no rain on the day of, but the clouds disappeared about 45 minutes before the beach ceremony. The sun graced us the rest of the day!

Oona and Jamey, congratulations! It was so special to witness your marriage, your sweet affection and the immense love that binds your family. We'll never forget the words of your ceremony, the poetry, the singing, the arbor made by your brothers, and of course Willa, who stole our hearts.

Oonie, I couldn't be more happy for you!

Here are a few of my favorites from the day.
