Meg + Nick: The Perfect Country Wedding

A couple weeks back I was blessed with what I believe to be a perfect wedding. Keep in mind this may have something to do with the fact that I just LOVE a rustic, outdoorsy, barn wedding! Anyhow, as a photographer this rarely happens. Perfect day, perfect location, perfect couple.

Meghan and Nick were married on the 20th of June in a wonderful outdoor ceremony at Pickering Barn in Issaquah. The rain and clouds threatened all day, but in the end they knew better. Their wedding was chock-full of all the little details that I love so much: red shoes, assorted bouquets from Pike Place, handmade cuff links (made by the bride & groom themselves!), wood-fire pizza made on site, local fruit pies, and to top it all off- homemade apple butter for wedding favors. Fabulous.

Their ceremony was brief and heartfelt. Touching. And when the officiant said to them (and I'm paraphrasing) "When asked what love is- I can't describe it, but I know it when I see it", I teared up a bit. I am SO not kidding, it was that sort of day.

It is impossible not to see how much these two truly adore each other.

The reception was just as great. Rustic pizza, beer (which I was sorry not to partake in), lots of singing, toasting, yummy pie, and a fantasic dance-off at the end of the night!

Unfortunately, as all good things do, this party had to come to an end. Last call was announced, the music eventually wound down (after a few Journey songs, and a stellar rendition of Biz Markie's Just a Friend belted out by the bridal party) and everyone lined up outside and blew bubbles as Meg & Nick raced to their awaiting Bentley.

Those of you who were there know what happened next, but for the sake of my perfect wedding story, I'm going to use a little artistic creativity and just say they were then whisked off into the twilight to the warmth of a cozy downtown hotel.

Sure to live happily ever after...

The End.
