Shannon and Tom got married at the Lake Quinault Resort and it was so beautiful. It was my first time shooting there and the view was gorgeous: a pristine lake and misty blue-green mountains beyond. You can see the view in this group shot of the wedding party:
Also beautiful were the details–the flowers, the cake, the delicate ferns at every place setting, the incredible food–and there were so many that I can’t post them all so instead I put some of them into a little collage:
But I’m getting ahead of myself here…back to the beginning. We started with photos of just Shannon and Tom. Here’s Tom waiting to see Shannon:
And here they are seeing each other for the first time:
Here are my favorites from the ceremony:
And then it was reception time!
Here’s Tom toasting his bride:
As you can see it was a tear-filled day!
I snuck the two of them away at dusk for a few shots down at the beach:
And then it was back to dancing…
I love seeing grandma on the dancefloor:
And I love a tent, glowing in the twilight!
It was a wonderful, emotional day, and I was so glad to be there to document it. Lastly, I want to give a big thanks to my second shooter Jennifer Richard for all her fabulous work at this wedding.
