This horse-loving couple's engagements session at Birch Bay State Park, photographed by Meraki Photography NW, is just stunning. What a great way to combine their interests with a beautiful location.
From the moment Katheryn Moran Photography sent us this gorgeous, spring-inspired styled shoot, we knew we had to share it with you. It captures the season beautifully and the detail shots provide a fantastic example of how to make your wedding truly seasonal. Enjoy!

Jennifer and Daniel's forest wedding, photographed by Nicola Reiersen Photography, is a feast for the eyes, and filled with sweet personal detail – we especially love that the couple's friends surprised them with a song during their ceremony.
This styled shoot full of autumn flowers, a plethora of apples, and beautiful design details, is just the inspiration you need if you're planning a fall wedding in western Washington.

This shoot is just what you need if you're looking for inspiration for your engagement or elopement photos – style, beauty and light. A collection of talented Bellingham-based wedding vendors put it together, and we can't get over the use of The Parkade in downtown Bellingham, the gorgeous flowers, and that sweet, beautiful couple.

On Saturday, September 24, Lydia Place and Boundary Bay Brewery will welcome 300 runners adorned in wedding dresses, tuxedos and bridal attire to the first Wedding Dashers Fun Run, a unique and exciting new outdoor event designed to raise awareness and financial support for homeless families.
Wedding Dashers, a whimsical fun-run, kicks off at Boundary Bay Brewery in Bellingham, and sets off on a 2.7 mile course down the Boulevard Trail and back. The finish line is just the beginning, as the Boundary Bay beer garden is transformed into a faux wedding reception complete with DJ, cake, mimosas and games. Registered attendees are asked to put on their wedding gear, lace up their runners and get dashing for families in need here in Whatcom County.
Wedding Dashers is the brain-child of Jenny Schmidt, local event planner, runner and events manager of Boundary Bay Brewery. Her hope was to design a fun, community-oriented event to engage people in an important and challenging issue and cause, in an accessible and creative way.
“The team at Boundary Bay Brewery and I wanted to find a way to honor the incredible work that Lydia Place is doing in Bellingham to end homelessness, while adding a little fun and humor to our downtown and beer garden." Schmidt said. "Wedding Dashers has been an exciting opportunity to collaborate with our local community and Lydia Place, while shining a light on this important issue.”
Online and in-store (Fairhaven Runners) is open through September 22. The cost to participate is $25, with 12 and under free. A limited edition tuxedo T-shirt by Iron Street Printing is also available to registered guests.
On the day of the dash, event participants are invited to enjoy complimentary wedding hair styling services provided by The Beauty Institute-Schwarzkopf beginning at 8 a.m. at Boundary Bay on Railroad Avenue. Additionally, the first 100 registered guests will receive a wedding-themed goodie bag filled with exciting items and services from event sponsors and wedding industry professionals. All participants will receive a wedding themed participation ribbon, and can enter to win prizes and goodies courtesy of Wedding Dash sponsors. Donations include prizes from Fairhaven Runners, Boundary Bay Brewery, Belle Bridal, LyLy’s Wonders, Wise Buys, lululemon athletica and more.
