There are some people that you just “click” with, and for us, Matt & Katie are two of those people. Hanging out with them for their engagement session and wedding day was just like hanging out with friends, and by the time we left I was sad to go! Aside from that, this burlap-and-lace wedding was simply amazing in every handmade detail – I could hardly believe how many gorgeous pieces that Katie had come up with! She MADE her flowers out of lace, fabric and heirloom brooches – took my breath away. At the reception, each table was marked with a place in the world that the couple had traveled to and their story there, accompanied by engraved wine glasses and a specialized bottle of wine. The dessert table was amazing, the food was delicious, and the atmosphere was full of a special kind of love.
Speaking of love, Matt & Katie’s story is pretty adorable. Matt grew up coming to his family’s cabin on Orcas Island, and he decided that because it was so special to him, he wouldn’t bring a girl here until he knew she was “the one.” When Katie was invited along for her first family trip to the cabin, she didn’t know the significance of that invitation; but on this day so many years later, they appropriately chose Orcas to vow their lives & hearts to each other forever. (Yes, I totally cried at this ceremony!)
Matt & Katie, we love you guys! Congratulations and many blessings in the years to come!

Karlyn and Kevin – you guys simply amaze me. Thanks for capturing all the details and moments of our day… especially some I never got to see!!! For example, I LOVED seeing the photo of my Dad and Matt before the ceremony and of my grandparents dancing – – let’s be honest, I love them all.
I feel like I got to relive the day all over again just by looking at your photographs…and that means more than anything.
From the bottom of our hearts, thanks y’all.
