Or…

You can turn you finance/to-don’t list into confetti and throw it at you screen.  Don’t lie to us or little baby Jesus/Buddha/Zoroaster… pick a deity any deity at all.  We so know that you are viewing this at work.  However, you are entitled to have a little skive and continue on with the rest of Erik & Jess rather gorgeous DIY wedding.

“Ken and I met back in February 2011. I am from outside of Philadelphia, PA, and was making my way across the country to try a new city and Ken had moved to Portland from Honolulu, HI, where he grew up.

Our first date was at Tea Chai Te, and we hit it off as we shared mint moroccan green tea and 2 hours of conversation. Things took off from there, and the following year, Ken proposed at Kelley Point in North Portland, representing how we came together in Portland from such distant origins just as the confluence of the rivers come together at Kelley Point.

It wasn’t long before we were preparing for our wedding. Ken is 1/2 Japanese and has been studying a Japanese style of flower arranging, called Ikebana, for 8 years. He, along with his sensei (teacher) and a few helpers, arranged all of the flowers and planned the set-up for our wedding all in the style of Ikebana. I am of Indian heritage and so the actual ceremony and dress was of traditional Gujarati (the ethnic group in India to which I belong) style. Building on this immersion of cultures, we decided to have Japanese food (sushi), Indian food (samosas and chaat), as well as American food (Pizza!) at the wedding.”

Time to let shutter candy begin!

We’ll hand over to the born again bride, Ashley and let her share her re-wedding experience:

My dress was a wedding dress from Monsoon, which was an unworn wedding dress on ebay! BARGAIN. I then had it altered to suit my style, changing up the back into a more racer back form and dropping the neckline. I added a broach at the back to pull it in and show my back a bit more. I then added a vintage wedding dress lace around the waist as a sash.

My headpiece I made myself from fake flowers I bought from a lovely florist, local to me.
Of course I did my own hair and makeup. 

Dom wore some skinny chinos I bought him and a lovely Nautica shirt I bought him. I thought he looked very handsome and comfortable. I didn’t want it to be too contrived. It all was so lovely and perfect.

The Wonderful Wedding of Linnea & Bryce

Yo y’all it is handkerchiefs at the ready for the first Beyond Beyond wedding of the year *muffled sob*

So, who are the lovely couple – who are the gorgeous nuptial devils cummin atcha via the screen? Well the drool-some twosome and the drool worthy day is that of Linnea and Bryce.  And, of course as ever being shutter candy fiends we are suitably transfixed by the beautiful images lensed by Seattle Based Photographer, Sahara Coleman.

Sahara shared:

This summer I had the privilege to photograph a truly beautiful wedding in my own home town on Whidbey Island. I have to admit, this was one of those weddings that I found myself getting nervous and sick over.

The weather had been terrible in the week leading up to that day, the bride’s hair person hadn’t shown up yet, and the groom was watching the soccer game up until five minutes before it was time for us to start portraits. I thought for sure I had a challenging day ahead of me…I’ve never been so pleased to be so wrong in my life.

The thing about these two amazing people is that they are the most laid back, and genuine human beings I have ever had the pleasure meeting. As long as they were together, it didn’t matter what happened that day, or how anything worked out (this quickly became evident to me when Linnea allowed Bryce to ROW her to the ceremony in a small wooden boat a quarter mile across the water “if we fall in, then we fall in”). I could only hope to find a love like that some day. The wedding took place on Whidbey Island, WA. It couldn’t have been more perfect.

With those lovely words it’s time for you to be transported to a lovely wedding!  Let shutter candy begin!
