Check out this HOT couple and their GORGEOUS black and white (with a hint of pink) wedding. They even had their guest wear black and white…

Vendor notes:

The fabulous Steven Moore Designs- wedding design, floral, cakes and that amazing dress (so glad Steve isn’t a photographer!)

Resort Semiahmoo- I love shooting here.

Ashley’s Artisan Sweets- truffles, cupcakes, macaroons, and more…

shannon + rod

I really can’t say enough about this wedding. I simply love these guys. Not only did they choose all my favorite NW vendors, but they were just incredible, fun, relaxed people. My favorite part was hearing Shannon constantly exclaiming, “this is perfect, just perfect.” These two are contenders for the had-the-most-fun-on-their-wedding-day award.

So here is what they did: They chose Larkspur Farm, one of my all time favorite wedding locations, Shimmer for make-up, Jan from Larkspur for their incredible flowers, food from Ciao Thyme (I couldn’t help but post a million food photos since food was a huge importance to Shannon and Rod– they did it sorta tapas style– eating little bits of yummy, seasonal foods for 2 hours–whew!) and Bristish Motorcoach for their London taxi. And to top it off, Shannon decided to chop off her hair before their grand exit. How fun is this girl?

I had such a hard time choosing photos to post. I think I narrowed it down to 83 and then had to narrow it again so my blog wouldn’t crash. So here are just a few. I will probably have to take a blogging break after this monster post because I have 10 weddings coming up in September!
