Mountain Springs Lodge Wedding LGBT couple

As usual, it’s taken me far too long to share another of my very favorite weddings of 2015. Emily and Cassie’s rustic Mountain Springs Lodge wedding is one of those weddings that makes me smile every time I think about. Leading up to the wedding, we chatted a lot about what sort of vibe they wanted for this day and seeing it all come together, exactly as they’d pictured was amazing. These ladies are from Texas and in true Lone Star fashion, they wanted a fun, country-rustic feel- but with an intimate and chic edge to it. And that’s exactly what they created. I especially loved their super stylish wardrobe and floral details. Cassie’s cropped grey suit paired with bright turquoise heels and Emily’s drop-dead-gorgeous backless gown from The Dress Theory were perfection. Not to mention Emily’s extraordinary antler and dahlia bouquet (complete with Longhorn pin)!! Did I mention they’re from Texas?

Alone, nestled under the birch trees and next to a small pond, Cassie and Emily had their first look. This moment was made extra special by the sharing of separate vows which were shared only with each other. This intimate moment was incredibly moving and caused me to wonder why more couples don’t do this.  The ceremony was held in a large birch grove under a bright blue sky, and incorporated several personalized elements including the most adorable flowers girls and a unique foot-washing ceremony. After an epic first kiss and a rush down the aisle that included a LOT of dried lavender, everyone returned to the main hall for a lovely slideshow, yummy food, the sweetest toasts, and FANTASTIC music and dancing thanks to crazy-talented (and totally rockin) Jones and Fischer.  I simply cannot express how much a adore these two wonderful ladies. I feel incredibly honored that they chose me to capture their memories and take part in their most special of special days. I look forward to may more memories with these two and hope every day of their lives together is filled with as much love and happiness as their wedding day was.

SO, less talking more photos! And, um…prepare yourself for A LOT of photos… seriously.  I had a really hard time narrowing this one down. 🙂  Also, if seeing this gorgeous wedding online just isn’t enough for you, be sure to check them out in print in the current issue of Seattle Met Bride and Groom!  🙂 Now, without further ado… Cassie + Emily.
