Wonita found me through Wedding Bee, and we began to correspond over email. Immediately I could tell that she was kind hearted, easy going, and trusting. Somehow, through only a few emails she trusted that I, someone whom she had never met, who was based several states away, and who had no weddings in my portfolio, would be the right person to capture her day.
And I think she had AMAZING judgement, because I am so glad she chose me.
Wonita and Dave’s laid-back attitude was best expressed in a moment on the day of the wedding. Wonita was getting her hair and makeup done, the bridesmaids had already had theirs completed, and it was about an hour before it was time to go to the venue. Dave strolls in, chats for a minute, and then says ‘Well, I guess I need to go find a wedding ring somewhere….” I laughed and joked about his statement…. but then was quickly corrected that no…. he was in fact shopping for his wedding ring a few hours before the ceremony. Nothing seemed to stress out this couple, or if it did it truly didn’t show.
The ceremony was held at the Pickering Barn in Issaquah, WA. Giant red bard? YES PLEASE. Mike and I were married at a barn and while I hate country music, I AM a sucker for a good-lookin barn.
Wonita and Dave, you are without a doubt one of the most gracious, kind, welcoming couples. I was so happy to be a part of your day.
Is what is one of my favorite parts of a wedding. I LOVE the moment towards the very end of the wedding, where everything is winding down and the bride and groom go out and take a minute and seem to enjoy a slow, emotional moment together at the end of the night.
