Elyse and Ben are by all standards one of the most beautiful couples I have ever met. Their wedding day happened on one of the sunniest days of the year, after rain had been falling for months all over the Puget Sound. The grass and trees were the greenest I  had ever seen, and with Marionfield’s red barn in the background it seemed like we were all evolving in a children’s book.

      When I met Ben, I knew it was going to be a great day. He was relaxed, joking around while helping with the set-up. Elyse was getting ready in a little white cottage and looked like an angel. I’ll never forget how exited she was, anxious to see Ben, pacing back and forth in her gorgeous wedding dress.

      The whole day, from setup to dancing, seemed like it was happening beyond time. I can still feel the warmth of the sun, picture the fantastic landscapes as I was looking for the venue, and the joy of the families coming together to celebrate their love. One could feel that Elyse and Ben could not wait to be husband and wife. I wish them a lifetime of happiness.
