Sarah + Brett: LDS Seattle Temple Wedding + Gig Harbor Backyard Reception

I only met Sarah and Brett 3 days before their wedding. And when it’s my usual style to meet couples a year in advance and spend the next 365 days getting to know them, I definitely felt the challenge. But LET ME TELL YOU, this couple could win an award for their camera fierceness. I could have photographed them ALLLLLL day long. So seriously, Sarah. Can you guys please move back up here so we can arrange that? I would appreciate it. K. Thanks.

Sarah and Brett were married in the LDS Seattle Temple, surrounded by their sweet family and friends. We then proceeded back to Gig Harbor for a bride and groom session at a park before heading to Sarah’s Mom and Dad’s house where the reception was being held. I have to say, I LOVE backyard weddings. There is something so incredibly special and personal about celebrating a marriage in a place that already holds so many precious memories.
