Justin & Allie: Wedding//Newport, Washington

As I sit here contemplating what to write for Allie & Justin's wedding post, I'm not sure where to begin. Their wonderful day was one of the most memorable to date so far and not just because it was beautiful. I believe if you're focused on being with the ones you love and having fun, nothing can go wrong. On July 8th, 2016, laughter rang out through Quail Run Ranch and excitement filled the air. From start to finish, Allie & Justin were relaxed and easy-going. It definitely helped that they were surrounded by amazing family and friends who were ready to help with anything that needed to be done. Even when the rain poured down, positivity reigned.   
One of my favorite things about weddings are the little details. One of the things that stuck out to me the most was how Allie infused her day with special items featuring her late grandmother. She wore her grandmother's pearl necklace, hand-picked her bouquet from her grandmother's garden, and dedicated a space to her at the entrance of their wedding. To see a family member so honored at their own wedding was really inspiring and moved me to tears.  
From the first look to their sweet ceremony to an awesome dance party, Allie & Justin's day was filled with joy, tears, laughter, silliness, and just plain fun. The rain stopped before their portraits and the sun came out for the ceremony. They danced away as husband & wife and hugged their way to the reception. Then it was time to celebrate. And let me tell you, these people know how to party. You'll see when you take a look at their reception photos.

Thank you so much Allie & Justin for trusting me to be your photographer. It was such an honor to be apart of your special day!
