Adam + Jess // Sedro-Wooley Wedding

September 30, 2016

September is perfect in the Pacific Northwest.  The temperature is lovely, the end of the month brings new colors and beautiful change to the Evergreen State.  And, if you're lucky, if you're really really lucky, the rain holds off until October.  Adam & Jess were recipients of such luck and were able to share it in spades with their friends, family, and most importantly, each other.

But much of it wasn't luck, it was the diligence and planning of two people who could not be more excited to spend their lives together.  So, as the sun warmed up the hills around the Skagit River Valley, Adam & Jess put on their finishing touches to start a whole new life together.

Admittedly I was surprised to hear a Catholic priest read the words of Lutheran pastor Dietrich Bonhoeffer but I love the statement for marriage that was given during the homily:
In your love you see only the heaven of your own happiness, but in marriage you are placed at a post of responsibility towards the world and mankind. Your love is your own private possession, but marriage is more that something personal – it is a status, an office. Just as it is the crown, and not merely the will to rule, that makes the king, so it is marriage, and not merely your love for each other, that joins you together in the sight of God and man.
 After the ceremony everyone headed to Rasar State Park for food and dancing and time with the best of friends.

Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Baker.  I wish for you a lifetime of dancing and joy.  I hope Italy is amazing!

I want to give a HUGE thank you to Ali Rongkawit of ali marie photography for capturing the day with me!  Team Ali for the win!
