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!

Okay– back from Camp and finally able to post some photos from Molly and Brandon’s wedding here in Bellingham. And yes, I did just happen upon that cool red couch on the beach while driving to the wedding. Perfect for this totally fun, spirited, creative and beautiful couple. And I had to take them to my favorite blue door and shutters nearby…
I am going to post more food photos than I usually do because M and B chose my favorite caterers and good friends, Ciao Thyme. Molly and Brandon are 2 major foodies [be sure to check out Molly's fabulous and famous food inspired blog- Orangette] so I am sure they won’t mind re-living the gorgeous feast they had at their wedding. I am still thinking about the caviar-herb dolloped, deviled, banton chicken eggs– whoa.

So here are just a few. I had such a hard time choosing… Thanks Molly and Brandon for being so fun and for putting up with my crazy ideas.
