Earthy PNW Forest Wedding Day

Kelsey + Ryan

I had SO MUCH FUN with Kelsey and Ryan during their earthy PNW forest wedding day. The PNW is absolutely one of my favorite places for weddings. I loved being tucked away amongst the trees and forest with these two. Kelseys bridesmaids surprised her while getting ready with the SWEETEST gifts while getting her ready, and the smile on her face was absolutely priceless. The best part, I did not see that smile leave her face ALLLLL DANG DAY!

I loved the earthy tones and moody hues all over their day, and I could not get enough of their epic backdrop. Kelsey and Ryan stood against the tallest trees and promised to spend the rest of their lives together in the sweetest ceremony, and every person was overwhelmed with excitement for these two. Once their ceremony ended, I followed these cuties into the woods and watched as they soaked up that just married feeling! Between the giggles, the tight squeezes and the sweet words, Kelsey and Ryan took in every last bit of the love between them.

We danced, drank, and partied ALL NIGHT LONG with their loved ones. There wasn’t a single person in the room who didn’t have a massive smile glued to their face. During their reception, Kelsey + Ryan slipped away once again. This time, they boarded the CUTEST newlywed paddle boat, and sailed away across the lake. Once again surrounded by the tallest trees, these two had the sweetest moment straight out of a freakin’ movie you guys. I was OBSESSED! Sparks flew and laughter surrounded them as they changed clothes, and ran off together at the end of night to celebrate forever together. I had such an amazing time with Kelsey and Ryan, and I hope you love these photos as much as we do. So so so so so much LOVE to Kelsey + Ryan!!!
