Wedding at Alderbrook Resort & Spa in Union WA | Katie & Matt

Remember Katie & Matt's engagement session in The Hoh Rainforest ? Welp... Let's just keep those moody, misty, and magical Hoh Rainforest vibes going with Katie & Matt's intimate wedding at Alderbrook Resort & Spa. 

These two have got some SERIOUS style, and it consistently radiates out of everything that is their wedding!! From a gorgeous handmade ceremony arch to playful handmade animal masks, these two were very hands on when it came to details. One word comes to mind when we think of Katie & Matt... thoughtful. They don't do things for sake of checking them off a list... They are mindful of their choices and there is meaning behind each element of their special day. It has been so refreshing to witness a couple staying true to their unique selves and planning a day that was a clear reflection of who they are, individually and together. 

Their wedding day was held at Alderbrook Resort & Spa in Union, Washington. The morning and early afternoon was relaxed, similar to their personalities. After the ceremony, we took a short drive over to Twanoh State Park for some portraits. It was raining off and on that day, and to be honest, it was perfect. Maybe it's because we shot in the rain for their engagement session, but we can't help but feel that rain suits these two. The forest was quiet, and made for a perfect setting for the newlyweds to soak up all of those 'we just got married' feels. We had a couple of minutes to spare before needing to be back for cocktail hour, so we strolled down to the beach to take advantage of a little bit of sun that was making its debut, and Ahhhh... It was gorg! 

Katie... Matt... Thank you so much for including us in such a special time in your lives. It has been so wonderful getting to know you over the last year and a half. Keep being you. Keep being amazing. And keep being thoughtful.  

2017

It's pretty hard to believe that 2017 is coming to a close. It has been so unbelievably jam packed with just about every emotion One can think of, and it's difficult to go into detail about everything we've taken on and accomplished over this past year. But one word comes to mind... Proud.

We got married. We packed up our life in Ohio and moved across the country. It was a year of risk taking... A year of discovery... A year of beginnings... And we are so excited to welcome what lies ahead of us in the year 2018.

Endless thank you's to all of the amazing couples we've worked with over the last 365 days! It has been a pleasure getting to know each and every one of you, and we hope that you know just how truly special you make our "job".

Cheers to ALL that happened in 2017... And cheers to what's next.

Happy New Year.
