Stacie and Rich Wedding {Snohomish Wedding Photography}

On Saturday I had the privilege of photographing Stacie and Rich's Wedding at Lord Hill Farms in Snohomish, Washington. What an amazing event!! This was an "exclamation point" event. I feel like every sentence I write should end with an exclamation point (or two or three). It is difficult to try to capture all the festivities and emotion of the day in 20 or so pictures...but here is my attempt!!
First, a shot from their engagement session....
One of the things that struck me about the day was the amount of little details that Stacie had put into the day. It showed her thoughtfulness of others, her gift giving abilities, and love of fun little surprises. The shoes were beautiful and had "I Do" on the bottom of them. She had both something blue (underwear that said "I Do" as well), and something borrowed (a little charm in her veil that was from her mom and dad's wedding, I believe). SO FUN!!
Then there was the detail of the flowers. As they were setting up for the wedding, the flowers just kept coming and coming! And they were breathtaking!! I don't thing 100 pictures could do justice to the amount and beauty of the flowers of the wedding. For those of you who were there, you'll just nod your head in agreement with me and for those who weren't, I've added a couple of pictures for you to see.
Getting ready, I just had to capture that beautiful ring on the hand of soon-to-be Mrs. Meyer...
Stacie and her bridesmaids were so fun (and beautiful)!!! They were relaxed and laughed with each other. I could see their love for each other...and how much fun they like to have together!
The ring bearer and flower girl were so cute! Once again - in the details...the flower girl's dress had the same buttons as Stacie's dress going down her back!
There is so much more I could say, but let's get to the main focus of the day...THE BRIDE!! Stacie, you are beautiful and you were positively glowing on Saturday!!
Not to leave Rich out...here he is with his groomsmen. They were relaxed, fun and oh so handsome. (Although I understand that between the two groomsmen, there was some hair cutting and change of color a day or two before. It would have been fun to have before and after pictures!)
Rich and Stacie opted not to see each other before the wedding, but that didn't totally stop them from being
together. We placed them on either side of a thick curtain just before the ceremony so they could talk, hold hands and connect.
Once again, the flowers...this is a picture of the aisle. Ribbons, flowers, petals, beautiful floral arrangements up front...oh my!! It was breathtaking!
A wide view from the back of the ceremony. And what a great ceremony!! A family pastor did the service, one of the bridesmaids sang, they lit the unity candle...and the ring bearer did a great job staying up there the whole time even though you could tell he was bored. (But what can you say...when you are a boy of four years old, weddings are not that exciting. Now, legos...there is some excitement!!)
HURRAY!!! They are finally married!!!!
After all the family pictures...together at last!!
You can tell Stacie and Rich have found their *BEST FRIEND* in one another.
One of my favorites of the day! May you have thousands of more moments to kiss one another over the span of your lifetime together!
So I feel like there are still dozens of pictures I would need to post to do the whole day justice. There were so many details and stories, I couldn't tell here (or the post would just go on and on and on and on...). Thank you to my friend, Moch Snyder, who came and second shoot the wedding with me. Thank you to Rich and Stacie's families...it was a tremendous celebration (and I love the flowers I got to take home!!)
Thank you, Rich and Stacie. It was a true privilege to get to capture your day in photographs. May your love for one another just grow and grow over the years!! And may you always be about the little details and fun surprises for one another!
