A couple of weeks ago, I was able to share in Courtney and Nathan's wedding. This wedding was special to me, as Nathan and I went to photography school together, and have spent some fun and crazy times together. I was even actually at the bar that Nathan and Courtney stopped by (it was a friends birthday party) on their first date. It still shocks me that that was back in late '04, early '05... so when Nathan and Courtney came to me and asked if I would be their wedding photographer, I was stoked. They were married on a beautiful Friday afternoon at Golden Gardens park here in Seattle. Courtney always wanted her toes in the sand when she said her I do's, and she got it! Courtney started her day with all her rad bridesmaids at the 4 Seasons hotel downtown. We had their first site outside by the pool of the hotel, and played around using the hotel for endless amounts of backdrops before running off to Golden Gardens. They were cracking up all day because, since Nathan is also a photographer, he wasn't sure what to make of being on the opposite side of the lens than normal. They kept being like.... so this is what its like! I remember the same weird feeling on my wedding day :)
Nathan and Courtney are such an awesome couple! They are always willing to go the extra mile for each other and support each other in their ventures. They are also always down for a laugh... as we saw during their ceremony, where Calvin and Hobbes was mentioned many times. I send my wishes to them to succeed in all their ventures together.
