i heart fall weddings.

I do.  I love the crisp air.  I love the leaves on the ground.  I love the color palettes.  And isn’t Serena the cutest Fall bride?!

It’s been busy around our house lately, and I’ve been traveling the last 5 weekends in a row for weddings.  My suitcase is just about worn out, and my car needs a detail job STAT.

But I am having so much fun, and I am overwhelmingly blessed to get to call what is such an amazing honor, my job.  Lucky me.

Maternity Portraits: Erika

The last few weeks before your baby’s arrival are so special.

I can’t even describe the amount of excitement and anticipation that was pumping through my veins my last trimester.  It was so hard to focus on much else.  I would just day dream about what he was going to look like, what kind of baby he would be, what kind of father my husband would be, what kind of mother I would be…  I couldn’t believe how much I already loved that baby who was throwing elbows at my ribs and kicking my sides.  Such a special time, and so brief.maternity portraits in Eastern WashingtonI saw Erika, and I could instantly feel her joy.  I wanted to plop down on a bench with her and squeal over how exciting it all was, but we were on a mission for pictures.  Focus Kristen!  🙂  We had such a fun session- I was smiling for hours afterward, just giggling over our time together.  Isn’t she positively glowing?!  Such a beautiful mother already, and I simply can’t wait to see that baby in her arms.

The Canal Wedding: Stacey and Jon

The Canal is such a fun place for a wedding.  Beautiful views, a swanky restaurant vibe, and right next to the gorgeous Ballard Locks (think stellar photo field trip- right next door!).  Pair that with an adorable couple like Stacey and Jon, and you have an amazing day.

Where do I even begin?  I first met Stacey and Jon over a year ago when they were both part of Laura and David’s bridal party.  (This group is so much fun!)  Once Laura and David had officially tied the knot and the party was well on its way, I can remember someone nudging my arm and pointing out Stacy and Jon on the dance floor.  “Grab a picture of them- they’re next!”

And I did.

Sure enough, I got a very excited email from Stacey just 3 months later.  Love that.  🙂

Fast forward 11 months and a whole lot of planning, and we get to Stacey and Jon’s wedding date.  With such a fun group of friends, the day was filled with so many giggles, jokes, and full on snort-causing laughter.  Stacey was beaming.  BEAMING.  And Jon couldn’t take his eyes off her.

Things I loved:

Birdcage veils.

Reception games that involve all your guests.  (See awesomeness below)

The boys’ socks from Sock Monster (in Wallingford).  SO FUN.  My favorite was Jon’s ‘Kosher’.  (Stacey’s Jewish- get it??!!)  🙂

The speech Stacey’s Dad gave.  I wish I had it word for word to share.  Why do dads always know just the right thing to say?

Bridesmaids dresses- Anthropology for the win!!

Having their witty, well spoken friend officiate their ceremony.  Yeah- bulls eye.

Getting to party with this amazing group again.

Shout out to Maricar for catching this sweet shot of Stacey looking at her dad before he walked her down the aisle.  I remember that moment so clearly from my own wedding.  I was so worried about my dad, that I almost forgot to peek at my husband at the end of the aisle.  There’s such a special bond between a daddy and his daughter.The Canal hosts a Seattle Wedding Ceremony

SO, I am a huge fan of finding ways for all your guests to get involved.  Stacey and Jon played a FUN game that was a cross between Musical Chairs and a scavenger hunt.  They each chose teams from the crowd, and it was Team Stacey against Team Jon.  It. Was. On.  Such a riot, and fun for everyone.Guests play in a scavenger hunt during the reception
