When Patti and Frank wanted to celebrate their 15th wedding anniversary by renewing their vows, I was so happy for them! She told me it would just be the kids and the couple for a very intimate little ceremony. So one day, we all gathered at the pavilion in Poulsbo, put on some music, and listened to their very romantic vows and watched their little ceremony. How sweet it was! And, for a moment, even the teens who weren’t sure why their parents were doing this, thought it was sweet! Congrats to Patti and Frank! 15 years and getting stronger!

Meagan and Caleb made a great choice for their wedding venue – Jardin Del Sol in Snohomish. Considering the forecast was for rain all day, the garden of sun held up to it’s name and the wedding ceremony and reception was rain free and ended up being a wonderful day!
Meagan is another former student of mine. She took my photography class when I taught at North Kitsap High School. Watching a former student get married is so awesome! It is more like watching family get married – a bit more emotional than normal! And in this case, we had also photographed Meagan’s mom’s wedding 7 years ago, so it really was like working with family! These two are just so sweet together! More than once I had a little catch in my throat! They are the classic “stronger together” couple. I expect these two can and will weather anything together. Best wishes to an amazing couple!

Don’t forget to check out the slide show at the end.

It was such a pleasure to meet this little girl – just five days old! She came a little earlier than expected, but since my own grandchild was late, this little girl helped satisfy my need to hug a newborn! Plus, it was a blast creating photos of her. She was so patient and cooperative with me, and willing to pose pretty much any way I wanted. So awesome! Congrats to her amazing parents! I know their life has changed already and I know they are going to enjoy this new chapter in their journey!
