Who: Karis and Joel

What: Awesome beach wedding

When: Saturday, July 22, 2017

Where: Lummi Island, Washington

This was one of those days when everything went perfectly. Karis and Joel – I recommend not playing the lottery because you already hit the jackpot.

My day started at 9:00am at Argyle Salon in Bellingham where I caught the tail end of Karis getting her hair done.

After hair we took the ferry together over to the island.

Karis and her family got ready at a beautiful log home on the island. Big windows overlooking the bay gave a lot of soft light for makeup (and photography).

I love the detail in Karis’ shoes and the patterns in the fabric of her dress.

Meanwhile, Joel and his groomsmen didn’t need quite as much time to get ready…

The finishing touches were wrapped up over at the ceremony location.

The ceremony was held down on their private beach. Joel’s family is restoring a Victorian farmhouse which was an incredible location.

There was so much detail put into the wedding space, like the driftwood signs.

The food and drink were really beautiful to see. There were even freshly shucked oysters!

Dinner was by Goat Mountain Pizza. If you haven’t had their pizza I highly recommend it. It was a perfect fit for the casual beach feel.

Seriously, can it get better than dancing on a beach under a gorgeous sunset?

As the sun reached the horizon Karis and Joel wandered off onto the beach to enjoy the last light and pose for a couple portraits.

I am seriously impressed with everyone’s energy levels at this wedding. The party just kept going and going…

Karis and Joel, THANK YOU!

I loved every minute I spent with you on your beautiful wedding day. Congratulations!
