A Great Few Years for Marriage Equality

Sitting in front of the fireplace, with my puppy sleeping by my side, I am reflecting back on all our wonderful projects, weddings, and events this past year!  This will be my last blog post of 2014 and while I was looking back at some of the photos I received back from various photographers, trying to decide which wedding I want to blog about, it became clear that I am especially grateful for one thing: all the wonderful couples I got to meet in the past 2 years since same sex weddings became legal in the state of Washington.
I loved each and every one of their weddings and each couple has a special place in my heart - I am so happy they finally have the freedom to marry who they love! And I am especially proud that our state was one of the first states in the nation to grant that freedom (by now, as I am writing this, same sex marriage is legal in already 35 states!). May the rest of the US states follow in 2015!!

This blog post is for the many happy couples I had the pleasure to meet and work with these past couple of years. I was so moved by the many stories they shared with me: that they were finally able to get married over 10 or 20 years together!! Many traveled 1000s of miles to Seattle from another state to tie the knot here in Seattle. Thank you for letting us be part of your special day!!
