It was a rainy Monday in November, but I must say, it was pretty memorable for a Monday…
Tom + Kelly met at summer camp when they were just teenagers. They had a summer romance and sadly parted ways at the end. They kept in touch for awhile, but eventually lost contact and lived their own lives. That is, until they found each other on Facebook years later. (oh, the powers of social media!)
Tom and Kelly live in Alabama (Tom is also a great photographer- check him out HERE), but decided to fly all the way to the rainy northwest in November to say their I do’s in a very private ceremony at the Tree House Point in Issaquah WA. (Which sounded crazy to me at the time- who would pick an outdoor northwest wedding in November if you didn’t live here? But I’m glad they did, because it was awesome!) Tom has always loved the northwest, and thought that the backdrop would be perfect for their elopement. There were 5 of us total: Me, Tom, Kelly, the Officiant, and 2 hotel guests that served as witnesses. (By far the smallest ceremony I’ve photographed to date!) Tom and Kelly were clearly estatic that they were getting married! It was truly an honor to see two people so in love finally getting what they want most in life- each other! (maybe this is a tad cheesy- but I can’t help myself) Congrats you crazy love birds!
I hope this giant posts makes up for my lack of post over the last two months. Where does the time go?
