Intimate, Elegant, Inspiring - Wedding at the Salish Lodge!

The happy couple on their terrace right over the Falls.
What a wonderful wedding!

Richard and Angela love hiking and backpacking and all thing outdoors.  So they wanted to marry in a place that had all the elements of nature that they love so much. They traveled from Oregon to Snoqualmie Falls.

The ceremony took place in their suite at the Salish Lodge.  The two had decorated it to include a table for the unity candle they lit and a place to sign their marriage documents.  Roses everywhere.  It was so romantic!
Angela and Richard were so happy

Kristen from the Salish and Bruce, the photographer, were the witnesses.

A tub for two

Then, it was time for some couple's photos.  We joked that they had two tubs and a phone for each ... but there was obviously a better thought.

The room itself was wonderful!  A perfect place to enjoy a kiss.

Followed by a five star dinner at the restaurant.

It was a beautiful day and there were many places to take those wedding photos that captured the day.

May the two live happily ever after!

Ah ... and a kiss at sunset to celebrate a perfect day
      ... a day to always remember.

Many thanks to Bruce Berg for this innovative images.

We want to thank you, once again, for marrying us.  You did a truly magnificent job.  I can definitely tell you know how to do this.  Everything was so professional and so incredibly special.  Thank you SO much.

Green Lake is the Perfect Place to Elope in Seattle

Landon and Emily are an adorable couple.  Both are in the military and Landon flew up to Seattle from where he is stationed in San Diego for his wedding.

They were going to marry at our place but the weather was absolutely perfect today so we all went over the nearby Green Lake (it's just four blocks away).  The ducks were about, the fish were jumping, the little white flowers were blooming in the grass -- life and love were in the air!

They brought two of their friends with them to be the witnesses.  

Landon and his best man ...

Emily and her man of honor!

Of course, the wedding vows were sealed with a kiss.

Then it was off to celebrate in Seattle!

Wishing the two the very best in their life together as a married couple.

The Most Romantic Vow Renewal Ever!

And so the ceremony began ...
"Tonight, the two of you will renew your wedding vows.
It is a very special occasion.  You have been married for 15 years and a day.  You came together as individuals in love and have sustained your union while supporting each other in your growth as individuals.  Both of you have helped create a relationship of loving kindness:  you have shared hopes and dreams, made a home that is safe and secure, a place of comfort and renewal, been able to express your true feelings, thoughts and emotions to one other."

The story of Mike and Lynn is so incredibly romantic!  They were fortunate to have found each other.  At the time, Mike was in the Navy so they married in front of the fireplace in their home. It wasn't the simple equation of man + woman.  There was man + woman + children + dogs + horses, then the birth of their children and the adoption of four others.  Not surprisingly, the two didn't have the time or the resources for a romantic get away.

Mike surprised Lynn with a vow renewal ceremony and weekend at the Salish Lodge. Lynn was thrilled and delighted!!

Their love was so palpable.  Theirs is a love that has met challenges and thrived.  Theirs is a love that inspires.

oth were so very happy!

These are the hands they have held through it all ... and their rings are reminders of their mutual commitment to "go the distance" together.

Lynn and Mike have hearts so big.  They are everyday heroes and it was an honor to be present with them at their vow renewal.  Wishing them blessings beyond measure!

Thanks to Amber Zbitnoff for the photos.
