After meeting Drew and Kirsti for their engagement in late 2014, I was so excited for their summer backyard wedding. The sun was out and it was going to be a spectacular day of celebration!
We met up with everyone at the family home in Olympia. The girls were getting ready and enjoying a relaxing day. This dress was amazing and it was really fun to celebrate it in the summer sun.
Meanwhile, the guys went to the woods to shoot guns. These gentlemen knew what they were doing and showed me up (they made me take a few shots, but I don’t think I have a future in marksmanship).
Once everyone was back on site, it was time for the wedding. The whole house was buzzing with fun energy as everyone prepared in the separate wings of the house.
When it came time for the ceremony, smiles abounded. The day was bright, beautiful and personal. Not an eye was dry when Drew teared up while giving his vows to Kirsti.
They did it! Months of planning were over and it was time to start the celebration!
This was one good looking group of human beings.
I love this cake. It’s so creative, beautiful and just fun.
I don’t think it was possible to have more beautiful light for the sunset. This is one great part of summer weddings is that twilight hangs on forever and you get to enjoy all the Washington sun has to offer.
And now, commence the dance party!
Thank you again to the amazing work by the family, the planning by Valerie Fluetch and awesome video work by Rhys Logan. It’s awesome working with incredible humans and I feel so blessed to be a part of this fantastic celebration.
