What was supposed to be a 95 degree day in Santa Barbara turned into a 75 degree/sunny/gorgeous day. Hard to believe I grew up in this stunning place. Mike and Kellie are incredible hosts and they (with the help of their vendors) planned quite the beautiful, sacred wedding day for all their friends and family to enjoy. Heck even the rest of us had a blast with them! Thanks to the incredible list of vendors (below) for making the day come together perfectly!

Jason/Nissana have traveled extensively both together and separately. They have a very similar outlook on life: experiences > things. Naturally, their wedding was going to be a wonderful experience. Scroll down to see both a gorgeous Cambodian Ceremony followed by a classic Western Ceremony and an eclectic mix of both in a reception as well! Thanks to Rebecca Grant (New Creations Weddings) for planning such a seamless celebration!

Colleen/Elliot are super into each other (see photo below 😉 — They got married at their uncle’s house; I’d say it was a pretty epic venue, wouldn’t you? I didn’t stay long enough to see the preacher jump into the pool 😉 but let’s just say we had a blast. These two know how to throw a proper party and they brought all their best friends and family to help them!

So, Holly, Matt, and I had an Oregon adventure this spring. I took the Amtrak Cascades train down from Seattle > PDX in the morning, met up with them around lunch, started the engagement session at Mt. Tabor Park with a gorgeous old Ford Classic Truck. Are you kidding? A red truck in the woods with these guys? Straight WERKIN IT. Then we moseyed on over to the Oregon Coast; classic Cannon Beach engagement shoot, had a quick bite at the Pelican Brewing Co (highly recommended) before they took me to the airport and I hopped a quick 30min flight back up to Seattle (via my favorite, Alaska Airlines) — Let’s just say it was a LONG, EPIC day to say the least. Scroll down and enjoy!

How the heck do you sum up a wedding weekend like Jeff & Ashley’s? Destination Wedding in Jamaica?! So. Much. Fun. We got to spend 5 days with their friends and family in Montego Bay at the Hyatt Zilara Rose Hall resort, so we got to know everyone well and had a blast lounging in the sun (in the middle of Seattle winter)! Jeff, in his speech to Ashley during the wedding, mentioned something that stuck out to me: “When I found Ashley, I feel like I found my home.” I absolutely love that! Something we should all hope to find is someone we can be completely ourselves with, when all the walls we put up around us come crashing down. Jeff and Ashley, so glad you guys found each other! ☺️👏🏼
