It was another beautiful day and another beautiful wedding, but don’t take that wrong, it was unique in every way! I know in the world of Pinterest, it’s easy to get caught up in the competition of the best details and that Pinterest worthy photograph, but this bride and groom concentrated on the experience. There were still those great details and we still captured all the special moments, but what stood out to me was the concentration on others. They wanted everyone to have fun and experience something different and unique to THEIR wedding.
Tara and Waylon decided to have their wedding in Port Gamble. I’ve never been there before, so it was a fun adventure. Usually Joe shoots with me, but for this wedding, I had my friend, Misty Winesberry by my side.
Tara and Waylon rented out two little guest houses across from each other – to stay in the previous night with their wedding party. There was still evidence of a good time from the night before when we arrived.
We captured a few more images at the houses before heading to the pavilion.
If you’ve never been to Port Gamble it’s a cute little destination with cute little shops and streets lined with white picket fences. Most things are within walking distance, so the guest houses are right down the street from the pavilion and that is close to the church. We headed to the pavilion for a few more pictures before the start of the ceremony.
Remember when I told you it was about the experience, well we were lead by a sax player and tamborine player announcing us as we walked down a side path from the church to the pavilion. How cool is that!
Just a note: One thing that helps make a wedding run smoothly is an awesome wedding planner. I’ve had the privilege of working with some great ones. Check out Lori Losee from Elegant Affairs. She did an awesome job on this wedding!
