Maya & Laura ~ Lakedale Resort Wedding, San Juan Island

brides-nuzzle-in-forest

With a love of the outdoors (Maya proposed on the first day of an eight-day backpacking trip over the Wonderland Trail, the 96 miles around Mount Rainer, at sunset), we recommended Maya and Laura checkout Lakedale Resort on San Juan Island for their wedding venue and we are glad we did as Lakedale Resort provided the perfect setting for a wedding weekend celebrating the love of these two women. Our favorite details of the wedding included the personal touches from the welcome gifts they created that included a custom embroidered blanket to the ceremony structure built by Maya’s family using logs from Lakedale Resort; to the traditional Ukranian wedding bread highlighting Maya’s family heritage; to their sisters standing for them in addition to Laura’s sister who officiated their wedding day; as well as the surprise performance by Laura who played the guitar and sang a song dedicated to Maya as she knows how much Laura loves to hear her sing.

BreeAnn you’re fantastic! We had no idea how much you were going to take care of for us and it was absolutely amazing. Could not have pulled it off without you!!! Seriously, we weren’t even going to have heaters. 🙂 – Maya

Marc & Rick ~ September 2014

As we drove over the Hood Canal bride this weekend home from a wedding it brought us back to Marc and Rick’s wedding last September and one magical night aboard the Steamship Virginia V. The day started after departing Foss Waterway Seaport as we headed to Quartermaster Harbor where Marc and Rick said their I Do’s as they faced the town of Burton where Rick’s family vacationed every summer. After tying the knot we headed south to the Tacoma Narrows Bridge for some amazing views as we turned around underneath the bridge before heading back to Tacoma as the sun set making for one incredible first dance backdrop on the bow. With the party going strong a porpoise made it’s grand appearance alongside the steamship as it too celebrated by giving us one spectacular show! Thank you Marc and Rick for letting us be a part of your wedding day! Photos by Ryan Duclos Photography.
