On Sunday I ventured over to the Woodmark Hotel in Kirkland to photograph Molly and Matt's wedding. Molly and Matt live in Jacksonville, Florida where Molly just graduated from college and Matt is stationed in the Navy, so Molly's parents were who hired me. I found myself really liking and respecting Molly's parents when we met and was super happy to have them choose me to photograph the wedding of their youngest daughter.  When I finally met Molly on one of her excursions up here for wedding planning, I was just as impressed with her as I was with her parents, which made me that much more excited to shoot her wedding!

So after many months of planning, the day arrived and it couldn't have been prettier. The Woodmark has this beautiful tent outside looking out on the water of Lake Washington that they use when the weather permits, and even though the forcast had been questionable, and there were a couple rain drops early in the morning, the day cleared to beautiful blue skies and upwards of 70 degrees by the time we started taking pictures, and they had their ceremony against the setting sun. Since Matt and most of his buddies are in the military, the groomsmen wore their dress whites (and one dress blues in the the Marines), and they finished off the ceremony with a sword ceremony of their own. It was quite beautiful.

Here are some of my favorites:

Congrats you two!
