a couple snuggles together in the woods at manchester state park

A few years ago, a client of mine was mailing me a check to pay the final balance for their wedding photography. He said, “Did you know you live directly next door to our wedding planner?” Of course I had no idea. While I had seen this lovely blonde girl running around the apartment a few times before and thought she looked pretty cool, I had no idea she worked in the same industry as me. We worked that wedding together, realized we both LOVE Husky Football, and the rest is history! Allie runs Sweetly Hosted, a company that you can trust to plan and run your wedding day, and design beautiful flowers. She did the florals and coordinating for my own wedding and has worked on many other beautiful weddings with me, including this gem. Allie is truly a wonderful person, and, deserves an amazing man. Of course I have a lot of great things to say about Allie since I’ve known her longer, but Jesse is the perfect fit for her. He is kind, fun to be around, stylish, treats her like a princess, and isn’t afraid to be romantic. I mean, he proposed to her at the base of a waterfall, what more could a girl want? It was truly a pleasure getting to know him during their Manchester State Park engagement session and watching their vision for the photo shoot come to life. We spent the afternoon enjoying the beautiful northwest scenery, exploring the old buildings on-site, and trying not to slip on the seaweed covered beach rocks. Allie had somehow scored an amazingly huge Vera Wang ballgown and decided a trash-the-dress session was in order. It was a blast! We topped off the afternoon with a sunset session on the ferry back to Seattle. It was the perfect little Sunday adventure!
