Rain is a Blessing on Your Wedding Day -- Lars and Lexie are very Blessed!

Wedding photos of Lexie and Lars on their balcony at the Salish Lodge and Spa Our Indian Summer is a memory ... autumn is fully established in the Pacific Northwest.  When I arrived at the Salish Lodge and Spa, it was drizzling a bit but lovely.

Lexi and Lars wanted a simple ceremony to make their marriage legal.  They thought it so appropriate to wed at Snoqualmie Falls, since it was a place that was dear to their hearts.

Elizabeth was one of the witnesses.

10-11-12: A Day of Power, A Day of Choice, A Perfect Day to Wed!

It was a beautiful day.
Carlos and Mona-Rae were ready to wed.
Brides and grooms want an auspicious day to wed.  At times, numerology can be useful.  Days like 9-10-11 or 10-11-12 are so very popular.  According to Janice Lynch, Psychic, the number 10 represents completing a cycle.  It is a time to understand lessons learned and to decide where to go next.

Number 11 is a double digit of the same number, which reflects a power number.

Eleven relates to decision making and choices.

The number 12 is composed of 1 + 2 = 3.  Three refers to who is going with you.

All together, 10-11-12, is a day when the question of what is really important to you, where do you want to go and who do you want to go with you should be considered.

The view of Snoqualmie Falls is quite dramatic.

For Carlos and Mona-Rae, it was a self-evident truth.  They wished to marry -- to begin their life together as husband and wife.

The two wanted to wed a location that held natural beauty and simple elegance.  When they came upon the Salish Lodge and Spa, the choice was easy to make.

The red of the trees was vibrant!

Plus, autumn is Mona-Rae's favorite time of the year.  She was thrilled with the brilliant colors of the trees.
