I had been checking the weather forecast all week, yes, rain was predicted for Saturday. When I woke up that morning to the sound of water filling the bird bath outside my window (althought I LOVE this sound) I sighed. But wouldn’t you know, the rain was brief and did a thorough job of cleaning the late summer dust, just in time for the wedding of Alicia and Marlon. We had a rain shower during their engagement session, so I was beyond relieved for the rainy reprieve on their wedding day. St. Michael’s Parish http://www.saintmichaelparish.org/ on the Westside of Olympia has the most stunning view–vibrant greenery framed the ceremony site. Alicia and Marlon exited the church in a flurry of bubbles and found minimal refuge in their sparkling convertible… Marlon always has had a thing for cars, so it was only fitting his groomsmen received gearshift diagram cuff links. The newly married couple hit the road, with the wedding party in close pursuit. We kept one step ahead of the rain, photographing the wedding party around downtown Olympia, as the guests made their way to cocktail hour at Indian Summer Golf & Country Club http://indiansummergolf.com/
The evening was filled with heartfelt toasts and as the sun deepened in the sky, the dance floor was illuminated and guests celebrated late into the night. The photobooth was a hit–people stopped by again and again and again… Amazing what a box of props and a camera can unleash : )
Congratulations Alicia and Marlon! Thank you for such a perfect day!
