The details: Rhandi and Danny’s wedding at Bowman Bay in Deception Pass State Park on Saturday August 18, 2018.
Here’s the word the encapsulates everything about these two and their wedding: fun. Just fun. I loved their attitude toward the day, that the whole day really was a celebration with each other and with their families and friends. From getting ready, to the ceremony, to the portraits and the dancing, to the exit in their Jeep. There wasn’t a moment when people weren’t enjoying themselves. They were so excited to have their wedding at the beautiful Bowman Bay, and I feel so fortunate to have been able to spend the day with them.
One of my favorite parts of an entire wedding is when the bridal party’s getting ready early in the day. It seems like it would be secondary to the ceremony and reception but it can produce some of the best moments between the bride or groom and their closest family and friends. Rhandi and Danny were surrounded by theirs in the hours before their ceremony, and it was really fun to be around them while they just had good times together.
While Rhandi and her bridesmaids were doing hair and makeup, Danny and his groomsmen were folding pocket squares, tying ties, and fixing their suspenders.
Danny wrote Rhandi a letter which must have been sweet because it brought out a few tears.
Their ceremony was nestled among the trees at Bowman Bay, set in front of a backdrop of forest, islands, and water. The setting was incredible and the weather was perfect.
They put SO much thought and work into the reception. So many incredible details. Look at this sitting area with lounge chairs! Look at these doughnuts! The candy! Blankets for guests in case they got cold. Succulents, lanterns, lights; Even just a couple of these would have been really nice touches. I am seriously impressed.
Little details really do make a difference.
Their cake cutting and first dance were big successes. We followed them up with some awesome portraits on the beach before rejoining the reception for some dancing in the stone and log shelter and bouquet toss. As the sun dipped below the horizon I tagged along in the backseat of Rhandi and Danny Jeep as they drove off.
THANK YOU Rhandi and Danny! You’re the best!
