These two. They make us so happy.
We were elated to get their inquiry about their Mount Rainier wedding, and even more so after our initial consult where we learned their story : which included the medical field and craziness, mountains, adventure, music, dogs, and family- both intentional and biological. We were a YES! from the get go.
Scott + Aaron brought their family from the East Coast and Midwest to celebrate their love, occupying the most beautiful hot-tub-laden Copper Creek Inn for all to enjoy for the entire Labor Day weekend. Their dear friend Leah worked in cooperation with Kristen from Jubilee Event Engineers to design, coordinate and ensure their aesthetic was true to them – and it was, simply perfect.
The day began with their mixing of Signature cocktails – our favorite, “Sassy Ginger” – to doing a slow and relaxed getting ready. They did their first look down a rainbow hearted aisle that led to their ceremonial space, and then we jumped into their truck to adventure on some stunning logging roads within the National Park. It just started to rain as we finished up, which was exactly what we expected. It was so cleansing and actually made the day that much fresher. Once we arrived back to the site, things fell into place and folks were paraded to the ceremony site where Scott and Aaron shared their heartfelt vows, and were wed in the most authentic, reverent yet humorous manner by their friend and officiant, Claire. It was deeply emotional, and we were so happy to be able to both witness and feel the love between the grooms and their community of loved ones.
After the emotional ceremony, the most stunning appetizers were passed compliments of Sunshine’s All Natural, cocktails started flowing, and the Warren G. Hardings Blue-Grass band started playing. The catering was magic, and desert complimented the meal perfectly: naked hops inspired cake by Baked Custom Cakes, paired with the flavors offered by the Ice Cream Social cart which arrived for late night snacks. What a beautiful authentic, love and community filled, nearly inexpressible, toe-tapping, happy bellied wedding this was. We are honored to have been able to be partied to it. Go ahead, witness the story of their big day from our lens….
