Anacortes Garden Wedding: Paige + Tyler

Its true, I pretty much fall in love with all my couples, and these two were no exception. They are the sweetest, most fun, in love and downright COOL people. Ty wore a printed dog shirt to their engagement session! Paige has done a Ted Talk!! Their cat's name is NIPPLES. So yeah, they crack me up and they are a blast and a half. For their wedding, Paige never imagined wearing a ballgown, but once she popped one on, she couldn’t resist. On the absolute rainiest day in June, she was a perfect woodland princess in the middle of a torrential downpour.

Despite the rain, Paige and Ty were able to do their personal vows during their first look. This special moment in the forest, surrounded by rain, tall trees, and gorgeous flowers, was one of the most intimate moments I’ve seen in 5 years of doing weddings. Since it was raining cats and dogs, the ceremony was moved inside the rustic old barn, with a backdrop of white gauzy fabric shielding from the weather outside. A sweet receiving line, taco dinner, and dance party followed. Paige is an 80s music aficionado, and there was no shortage on their playlist. Overall, it was an exciting, personal, and celebratory day.
