I am so thrilled to say that my 2019 wedding season kicked off with Jonathan and Kayla’s beautiful wedding day!

It’s hard to summarize something that seemed almost like a dream. I had been to Hawaii one other time and there is just something magical about it. “It calls me…” as Moana would say.

Ok, I’ve talked a little bit about Basic Invite before on my Instagram. However, I feel like I should probably make a little blog post about them, so all this great information is easily accessible to all my beautiful brides!

So you know the feeling when you meet an absolutely genuine person? What about when you meet two? Well that’s the feeling I got when I met Emily and Alex! They are so in love with each other! That love and happiness radiates off them, 110%!

I was honored to be asked to not only be the photographer of this beautiful wedding, but a bridesmaid as well! Bridesmaid, sister, and photographer…

Driving up to this wedding, I had the case of the excited butterflies. I had enjoyed all of my email conversations and my Skype date with Sam and Eric while preparing for their big day, and I was finally going to meet them face to face!

So I actually knew these two growing up! Minnesota roots here. We hung out at a lot of church activities and went to a lot of dances together. They’ve always been two of the sweetest people I’ve had the chance of meeting. Who would’ve thought they would end up together?! 

Seattle doesn’t have many hot days. In fact, the likelihood of rain at one point or another on a May day is usually pretty high. However, that day the sun was shining! It was gorgeous. When I think about this wedding a sunny, summer day comes to mind.
