A place for proposals and promises

When Justin first laid his eyes upon Gina he knew there was something very special about her.  The conversations began and will continue between these two newlyweds  for the rest of their lives. 

Justin and Gina decided on a small, intimate wedding in a very special place.  This site was off of Five Mile Drive in Point Defiance…and was also the place where Justin asked Gina to marry him…a great place for proposals and promises.

The rain took a well timed break during this very wet month in May. A huge hawk flew by to greet us as we walked the path to the clearing under the trees, overlooking Dalco Passage.  The setting was peaceful and serene…and was the perfect place for Justin and Gina to become husband and wife.  Justin and Gina wrote their own beautiful vows and as they gazed into each other’s eyes, spoke them heartfully as happy tears were shed.

Justin and Gina, both University Professors, look forward to a rich and rewarding life in which they are best friends, lovers and companions, and where the love between them is easy to see.  I wish them the very best and thank them for the honor of performing their ceremony.

Wedding celebration for Laura and Ivan

Their vowel renewal at the Grand Holiday Ballroom

At last, they share their wedding day!

For nearly two years this couple have endured being apart as Ivan finished his tour of duty in the military.  They finally celebrated their wedding, a renewal of vows,  with close friends and family at the Grand Holiday Ballroom in Olympia.

They were happy to include as their ringbear, their son Matt…and 7 month old Bella made her presence known throughout the ceremony creating smiles and giggles. 

The ceremony was special as it included their love story and blessings for the children.Bella stold the show...such a cutie!

Guests flew in from all over the country, including Hawaii, Texas, Maryland and other states.  This couple looks forward to a bright future and wish to set a good example for their children.  Ivan has his eyes set on politics…so, maybe we’ll all be seeing move of him later on.  Best wishes to this happy couple!

A Springtime wedding

A great wedding at Pioneer Park

David and Amanda, Newlyweds

It was my honor and privilege to perform the wedding for Amanda and David. It was a beautiful spring day at Pioneer Park and this couple seemed very happy with their new union. Congratulations to this new couple!

Like many couples, Amanda and David had a very short window in which to plan their wedding as David is in active duty.  We were able to plan their small ceremony with ease and it was in such a beautiful setting.  Pioneer Park in Steilacoom, Washington, has a gorgeous view of Puget Sound.

Love, it’s not just a feeling, it’s a force!

Tonight I performed a lovely wedding for Lucas and Janet at the Grand Holiday Ballroom in Olympia. It seems their love story was one of those wonderful “love at first sight” happenings.

Lucas, it seems, was a confirmed bachelor, according to his family and friends. But when Lucas and Janet met at a business conference, the force of love took over the agenda. And, because there was business to do, there was little time to become acquainted.

They parted the meeting and continued the conversation by way of texting, e-mailing and phone calls, since a mountain and many miles came between them.  In month two, they had their first date…in month two, marriage entered their conversation.  So now, almost a year later, this couple begins their life together.  Congratulations to Lucas and Janet…and happy honeymooning! 

It was a fun story to tell and I wish them both the best in their new life together. Happy honeymooning you two!
