It was a wedding on the mountain top. The crisp mountain air bit at your cheeks and when you spoke, a thin trail of white smoke would escape your lips. It was like winter in July, minus all the snow 😉 The cabin was filled with laughter as we walked inside, and I could tell in that second, this was going to be a wedding to remember. As the weather swiftly switched from perfect mountain weather to a torrential downpour (I kid you not!), Laura happily exchanged gifts with her bridesmaids, helped the flower girl with her lipstick and stayed happy, calm and relaxed through it all. She was marrying the man of her dreams and nothing could bring her down from the joy this day brought.
Trevor waited happily for his wife to be on the mountain top. When he seen Laura walk down the aisle, everything just stopped and it was like it was just the two of them…it didn’t matter if it rained – or heck, even if it snowed! The only thing that mattered in that moment was that they had each other.
Laura and Trevor, words cannot express how grateful I am to have been a part of your beautiful day. To put it simply, thank you. Your love for one another is undeniably true and I am so humbled to have been there to witness the two of you commit the rest of your lives to one another. You two have a bright future ahead of you as husband and wife.
An even bigger thank you goes out to my lovely friend, Adina, from Wren and Rook Photography for allowing me to tag along and shoot alongside you. Each and every wedding we do together I have more and more fun each and every time. Thank you for being such a great mentor and friend…Much love, J.

While Laura and Trevor were getting ready for their wedding, the weather outside was not going as planned. It would rain down hard for about fifteen minutes, then let off for another fifteen. Ten minutes before the ceremony, Laura called Trevor to make the call as to whether or not their wedding would be moved indoors or not. The decided to keep their ceremony outside, hell or high-water (literally!) and I am oh so glad they did.
And then we were off to see Trevor and his boys in their separate condo.
The Blue Jays have been having a remakably great season this year and Laura and Trevor’s wedding day happened to be on the same day they were in Seattle on a Saturday for the first time in years…their eyes were glued to the tv the whole time.
Ceremony at Raven Lodge.
The rain held off for the ceremony and started back up right before they walked back down the aisle as husband and wife! Pure joy.
After the ceremony we trekked down to Paradise Meadows for some portraits. Pretty fabulous if you ask me.
After portraits we made our way back to Raven Lodge for their reception that did not disappoint!
I’ll end it here. Sealed with a kiss.
