melanie and brett get married on new years day

1.1.11. seattle.






the most awesome wedding, for the most awesome couple on the most awesome day in many many many many moons. when i first talked to melanie on the phone, we clicked right away. i fell in love with her laid back approach. when she described her vision for her wedding as a grand party for all the people she and brett loved most, i knew she was the kind of bride i just had to work with. i feel so grateful that melanie and brett had marty and i out to seattle for their amazing new years day wedding. the power of their connection was moving. the kindess, and yes, all around awesomeness of their family and friends made for an incredible and memorable trip. also, a big special thanks to my super talented  friend kj for second shooting for me that day. see her images here:
