Stephanie + MIchael: Bellevue Temple Wedding and Gig Harbor Backyard Reception

Filed in: Uncategorized

Some weddings just make you smile. Michael and Stephanie are some of the kindest people I have ever met, and between them and their hilarious family, I had a smile plastered on my face all day. Their wedding started in Bellevue where they were sealed at the LDS temple and then moved on to Gig Harbor to Stephanie’s family’s backyard. Their reception was full of so many personal details that make their day SO unique. I couldn’t feel more honored to have been chosen to document their special day. Congratulations you two!!

Love these mad libs!

Stephanie’s father passed away 6 years ago and she wanted to do something special to honor him on her wedding day.

Anyone else see Dirty Dancing?

The amount of hilarious photobombs from this wedding was unreal. I felt like a crazy person laughing by myself in my office as I edited. SO much fun.

    Melissa, I completely understand. I was dying going through all the photobombs shown in the bloopers album Steph posted. That family is one of the funniest around. No competition.
