A sunny day in April at a beautiful winery in the PNW was the setting for this special wedding day. From the very beginning planning stages Carrie and Tylor were so fun to work with. Laid back, doesn’t even come close to these two and I love them for it! Planning a wedding anytime can be frustrating, but in 2020/2021 there are plenty of extra twists and turns (to put it mildly) and throughout it all Carrie and Tylor were laser focused on what was important to them. Marrying each other!
A couple of my own personal highlights from their wedding day:
-At the first look when Tylor saw his beautiful bride he was completely overwhelmed with emotion. It is such an honor for me to be present and witness these very intimate moments between people and something that I will never take for granted.
-The flowers were stunning. So cheerful and spring like. Colorful flowers always make me happy. Oh and the sunshine, it felt so good to be outside with great people photographing weddings again.
-The creativity at this wedding. A wine and cheese pairing lead by John, the owner of JM Cellars was a wonderful cocktail hour activity. Unfortunately I didn’t try the wines (I don’t drink and work – never a good idea) but the concept was great. Other little touches like the fine jar for people who mentioned the C-word added a little extra fun. (covid in case you were wondering) The neon sign with Carrie and Tylor’s new last name was a fun addition to the reception space which is already very unique with all the wine barrels and edgy lighting.
-Great people, great food, great day!!
Carrie and Tylor you two have such a special connection and it has been a real honor to witness and document this part of your love story. I love your vulnerability and the care and love you show to all those around you. I hope you enjoy your photographs for many many years to come.
