Dana and Jeff….Wedding
I had a blast with Dana and Jeff on their wedding day. These two were so excited to be getting married. Their enthusiasm was infectious to everyone around them. We started out on Dana’s parents spectacular property on the water in Olympia. I want to go back on a sunny day and play in the water there…such a great spot.
I’d describe Dana in one word…spunky. She is so full of life and a total delight to be around…the kind of girl you want to be friends with. Jeff is a super guy too. He can’t stop smiling and has so much love for Dana. These two are forever.
The ceremony and reception were at the Olympia Golf and Country Club. We hit the tide right and were able to do their group shots down on the beach.
I went down later after the ceremony because I really wanted to take this shot. The beach had shrunk from 20 yards to more like 2 feet from the break-wall. I had to lay on the crushed shells to get this shot. I was covered in shells when I stood up, but it was worth it.
Dana and Jeff released 50 Monarch Butterflies just after they were pronounced husband and wife. They fluttered around everywhere! All night long I was finding them inside and outside.
Here one landed on Dana’s bouquet!
Not fans of cake….who needs it. How about 15 flavors and 10 toppings of Ben and Jerry’s Ice-cream….YUM!
One of the flower girls wanted Jeff and Dana to kiss her ice-cream.
Dana and Jeff, thanks for your patience in getting this blog posted. It has been a long time coming. I have 4 more anxious brides and grooms waiting to see their weddings posted. So keep checking….I’m slowly making progress on the processing of my photos from a crazy season. Last night marked my last wedding for a few weeks. So I’m hoping to catch up. Wish I wasn’t so particular and could hand off the work to someone. But I like to edit, crop, play with the photos. It is like the reward for me after shooting an event.
