Erin and Brent tied the knot on a beautiful PNW day at the Squalicum Boathouse at Zuanich Point Park right on Bellingham Bay! After the ceremony we took some time to photograph the two of them around the boathouse area (LOVE those fish net textures!) and then took a quick ride up to Marine Park for some greenery and even got a little train in the background for fun. They had so many sweet details on their day including custom coasters, desserts from Pure Bliss, florals from Pozie by Natalie and their own photo booth. Their wedding was intimate and perfect! This is one of my favorite, central venues in Bellingham. Enjoy!
Mitch and Bre’s wedding day was perfectly Pacific Northwest- full of rain, umbrellas, pizza from Pizza’zza, personalized beer made by Atwood Ales AND cake topped in hops by Gathered Confections. The bride’s bouquet was assembled by the groom’s sister, Julia Moquin, and this afternoon was perfectly low-key and beautiful surrounded by close family and friends out at Hovander Park in Ferndale, WA! Check it out <3
Katie and Max were surrounded by their HUGE and HILARIOUS group of friends and family on their wedding day at Barnstar Events in Ferndale, WA. The entire day was full of laughter and while the weather was warm, we couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day to celebrate this sweet couple. I had the awesome opportunity of getting to know Katie and Max for more than a year before their wedding took place. Even though they lived out of town, they made their way back to Bellingham for an in person meeting and our engagement session together in the Fairhaven area. The chance to really get to know clients for a significant amount of time before their big day makes such a huge difference in the final product. I loved working with these two and Barnstar is a beautiful and unique venue offering SO many great opportunities for photos!

The Heliotrope Hotel is a little gem located just minutes from downtown Bellingham offering easy access to all sorts of Pacific Northwest fun. It’s right on the bus line and walking distance to all sorts of local businesses- it makes for a great jumping off point for whatever your adventurous heart desires. It’s also the perfect spot for a unique kind of wedding day! Friends and family can all stay in the newly renovated rooms and the pavilion is the perfect size for a smaller wedding ceremony. This session was meant to feature just that- an all day adventure starting and ending at the Heliotrope Hotel!
I loved working with this awesome team of vendors to really show off the unique and colorful aspects of the Heliotrope. We wanted to show how a couple might utilize this space and take full advantage of the central location. These two started the day off with a hike with their dog (the hotel is dog friendly, too!) before coming back to get ready for their celebration! You’ll see photos in the hotel rooms that are full of natural light, shots of their bridal party on the property with all kinds of bright and geometric backdrops as well as ceremony and reception photos. Everything took place right onsite which is what really makes this venue special. Everything is all in one place and you can spend the time with your guests relaxing and enjoying yourself!
Every single one of the businesses involved in this shoot are LOCAL and AWESOME. We all specialize in weddings and events and can help make your day special, too. Absolutely check each one of them out if you’re on the lookout for vendors of your own!
