On the last Sunday in August, Lauri and Richard were married at the chapel at Fort Lewis and celebrated their reception at the Marriott in downtown Tacoma. Lauri planned the entire wedding from afar in California, and I was amazed at how she’d thought of every detail—from special claddagh candles and cake toppers, to engraved cake servers and a monogram lighting up the dance floor. And I was also amazed at how Richard was able to remember all the guests’ names as he welcomed each and every one of them in his toast at the reception! It was a beautiful, heartfelt day, and I think that really comes through in the photos. Here are a few of my favorite.
The bagpipes signaled the beginning of the ceremony:

Thank you to Jennifer Richard for her second shooting, and to Elizabeth Nelson for her assisting. And most of all thank you to Lauri and Richard for including me in your wonderful wedding–it was truly and honor to be a part of it.
