Holly and Amy’s Fox Island Wedding and BBG Bash
Holly contacted me in July about the good news of her and Amy’s upcoming wedding on Fox Island in the Puget Sound. Island life is one of the local charms of Western Washington and weddings on islands are the best.
I met with Holly and Amy a few month before their wedding to prepare for it. Holly said,
“Your portfolio is the first I have really felt a connection with since I started my search – so much so that I am contacting you even though I am worried about my budget. Ceremony (short, I hope) is on Fox Island. The reception is immediately following at a large cabin in Gig Harbor, which I envision with more or a BBQ/kegs/family reunion feel.”
I knew right away I had the right people when the reception was referred to as the “Ceremonial Keg Tapping,” and they had the right photographer.
Each of their fathers walked the ladies to the ocean view alter at the Fox Island United Church, where Reverend Janet Matthews performed the happy ceremony. It was a very emotional celebration and the good feelings were strong among both their families and very close group of friends.
Holly & Amy couldn’t get enough of the rainbow. Their bracelets were especially chosen for this moment.
Being in September, their choice of black-eye susans and snapdragons was just beautiful.
Fox Island Wedding
Some things happen so unexpectedly and perfectly in my little photography world. I have never seen rainbows so vividly through my lens before, but while doing portraits behind the Fox Island United Church right after the ceremony I created these beautiful rainbow anomalies.
The Ceremonial Keg Tapping, AKA Reception, was held at a VRBO outside of Gig Harbor.
