• Zach + Britta

Her dad spoke up during toast time at the reception and started sharing that it wasn’t strange at all to be welcoming Zach into the family because really, he had already been a part of the family for quite some time. 8 years to be exact! He told the story of how Zach road his dirt bike through the snow to come see Britta one winter and how he had been on almost every family vacation. This story sounded so familiar to us because that’s exactly what it felt like when Michael and I got married. Everyone was celebrating and they had been looking forward to this day for years! Britta’s Maid of Honor mentioned that Zach and Britta’s relationship was what she looked to as her examply of true love and I don’t think there is any higher compliment than that!! These two were truly made of one another. I am friends with my brides on Facebook and I have LOVED watching the countdown to this wedding.

Britta’s excitement has been growing with every passing day and I don’t blame her! It’s crazy to think that after almost a decade of dating, these two were FINALLY becoming husband and wife!!

Their day was perfect! As soon as we arrived in the Seattle airport and mentioned to a few people that we were traveling to photograph a wedding, the first words out of their mouths were “This is going to be the PERFECT weekend for a wedding!”. Obviously the pacific northwest is not known for its’ abundance of sunshine and clear skies and so to have a day with no rain and beautiful sunlight was a welcomed surprise!! Michael and I absolutely LOVED being a part of the amazing day! You all are going to love this one, I can just feel it! They were married in a magical little spot in the forest that I like to think of as “Little Narnia” and it was stunning!! Enjoy our favorites! And Zach and Britta, we were BEYOND honored to be a part of your big day! I’m still baffled that we got to shoot your wedding day on the other side of the country!! We love you both and we are so happy for you!!!!

And if I didn’t love this post already, this makes it even BETTER!!! We absolutely LOVED meeting Jarrett and Heather from First and Foremost Productions and working alongside of them on Sunday!! They’re so awesome that they put Britta and Zach’s teaser together in 24 hours so that it could be included in their blog post! That’s amazing!!!! It’s a much see!! :
