7.13.13. Maplehurst Farms, Mt. Vernon, WA. Wedding days are really special, but this wedding was especially special to me as well. I’ve known Melissa and her family since she was 14 , and for a short time I even lived with her family as they graciously housed myself and many dancers over the years. They even helped me pursue becoming a photographer and bought me film when I began. So being there to witness and celebrate with her on her special day was awesome!
It was a perfect sunny day at Maplehurst Farms in the beautiful Skagit Valley about an hour north of Seattle. Their wedding ceremony ended with a surprise release of monarch butterflies and the reception was anything but quiet. Lots of laughter and dancing! Melissa and Mark, congratulations to you both and your families! It was great to be there and I’m looking forward to seeing you guys in Florida at Laura + John’s wedding in a few weeks. Cheers!
