I’M BECCA, AN OREO EATING, WARM WEATHER LOVING, LAID BACK FRIEND WHO LOVES TO CAPTURE THE WHIRLWIND MOMENTS IN LIFE!

Married | Snoqualmie Point Park | Allie + Noah

portraits of bride and groom Noah and Allie were married on August 21, 2010 at the Snoqualmie Point Park. The day was a beautiful August day. Overcast, but bright and warm. A perfect day for a park wedding looking out over North Bend (which is about 30 miles east of Seattle at the base of the Cascade Mountains). They got ready at Noah's parents beautiful house in North Bend where they had spent a couple years living while saving to buy their own house. The Smith house was a perfect spot for their intimate wedding, as it helped showcase the intimacy of the event, while being a beautiful backdrop to spend their reception under a tent in the backyard.

Allie was radiant while getting ready, which says something for the girl seeing that she got a bit of food poisoning the night before. Nothing was going to stop her having a beautiful day, she took it all with a smile and the graciousness she always gives people... just kept a bottle of Gatorade nearby. Luckily she was feeling a lot better by the time she walked down the aisle, and saw Noah's beaming face waiting for her.wedding dress, shoes and gartergroom getting ready with his boys

Leave it to the boys to make sure to get their mimosa action on early!  And if you are wondering, the cute groomsmen in the hat is my hubby Pete. He was Noah's groomsman just like Noah was in our wedding. We have known this couple for a LONG time :)  and I was honored to be requested to be their photographer.bride and groom portraitsbride and groom portraitswedding rings

Allie walked down the aisle with this little bible. This bible has made through 5 generations of Smith families. All brides in the family that have carried this little bible down the aisle with them on the their wedding day have had long happy marriages. It is a tradition to continue! It's a good thing that they aren't required to read from it though, as it is in German...dad walking bride down the aislewedding ceremony

It isn't uncommon to shed a tear or two at weddings for me. They are such amazing affairs with such heart in them that on many occasions I find myself wiping tears from my eyes while trying to focus :P  and this wedding was no different. They were sweet and touching and 100% into eachother. A perfect couple.wedding cermonybride and groom holding handswedding ceremonywedding partybride and groom kissingcake and invitebackyard wedding detailsbackyard weddingwedding cake cuttingguests falls trying to catch the garter

I love this last series as I don't think I have ever seen two guys be so eager to catch the garter... ladies, yes... but usually not the guys. One of them slipped on the pavement with his fancy dress shoes, that I doubt keep any traction, so he ended up getting the garter for sure perseverance.
