I have been so bad at catching up on blogging. I have so much I want to share, and I’ve been getting side tracked. Now that it’s almost this lovely couple’s first anniversary, I know I needed to get this blogged!
From the moment Vanessa reached out to me about her wedding to Brittney last summer, I knew I was going to love these two. Vanessa told me they knew exactly what they wanted – a small wedding with their family and friends, something that they could easily plan long distance from their home in Western Washington. And that’s exactly what they had! It was a beautiful wedding, and I very much enjoyed spending a few hours with these two and their lovely families.
Sometimes people ask me if working with couples long distance is harder. Nope! I planned my wedding long distance, (in the dark ages, haha) before there was much online for long distance or destination wedding planning, and so I’ve worked very hard to make it easy for couples to do everything they need to do online. Yes, sometimes it’s stressful because you can’t reschedule an engagement session to next week because they are only in town for two days. Yes, sometimes we have our all “coffee date” meetings over Skype or the phone. Yes, sometimes I show up to a wedding and I walk into a room of beautiful people and ask “who’s getting married today?” but sometimes it’s super obvious, because there are two beautiful women in white dresses standing in the middle of the Davenport Hotel!
Vanessa and Brittney, thank you for welcoming me into your wedding day, and for introducing me to your sweet families. It was an honor to meet you, and I hope that someday our paths cross again!
