Shari and Stan were married on April 27, 2013 at Willows Lodge in Woodinville, WA.
It was such a fun and wonderful day celebrating Shari and Stan getting married. They had their closest friends and family as part of their entourage. Oh and their dog Stewart was the ring bearer!! And when we ran around the property to take fun images, he was right there with us. :-) We just knew that we would have a blast with Shari and Stan on their wedding day because their engagement session was one of our most fun sessions last year!
Willows Lodge is such a beautiful place for a wedding. It encompasses everything about the Pacific Northwest and the natural beauty which it surrounds. They have a fantastic outdoor location for the ceremony that looks out at the herb farm, which the restaurant uses for its wonderful dishes. It was touch and go for a bit whether the weather would cooperate, but the rain stopped right after we orchestrated Shari and Stan's first look, so we got to take full advantage of all of the grounds around the hotel for their images. It was the kind of light that we love to photograph in, soft and even shadows.
They had their official logo throughout all of their decor, a beautiful anchor with their initials on a heart. It was on their invitations, in an ice sculpture, on the cake and they both have it tattooed on them! Their ceremony was super sweet with a reading from The Velveteen Rabbit. Then the party got started! This was one wild crowd that knew how to have a good time. They had a unique band playing Hawaiian music for the reception and they of course had Foto-Robot as no party is complete without him!
We truly loved being a part of Shari and Stan's big day and are so glad that we had the honor of capturing all of the wonderful moments of their amazing day. Please enjoy their story!
