I have been so excited for April and Jenny’s North Cascades Institute wedding for months, but no amount of excitement could have prepared me for the intention and joy that made this day so wonderful. From the first moments that everyone stepped onto the property, the sense of peace, love, and desire to make memories together was rooted in the way that these two make their community and make it stronger. There are a hundred little moments, whether they are seeing April and Jenny sitting together and writing their vows or the mountain ranges on their wedding rings. I almost teared up seeing Jenny’s dad hold her hand as they walked together to take family portraits. I will remember the way that April excitedly helped Jenny keep the train of her dress up while heading off for photos on the Diablo Lake dam and the “Hell Yes” that they each shouted at the end of their Quaker inspired ceremony. It was a day of beautiful tears and more beautiful people.
It was such an amazing honor for Erika and me to be a part of this celebration. I am humbled to make photos for these two incredible women and can’t wait to share more soon.
