You know when you meet a couple and everything just clicks? Well that was the case with Candice + Brandon. They are two of the sweetest, kind hearted, and loving couples I have had the blessing of working with! We met in a local coffee shop in downtown Kirkland to talk about photography and their wedding day and chatted as though we were old time friends !
Candice and Brandon met at a party hosted by their mutual friends, after Brandon moved back to Seattle, where he grew up, and Candice had just moved to city from sunny California to pursue a new adventure. Within moments of Candice walking in the door, Brandon heard her laugh and immediately thought, “I am really excited to meet this girl.” That night they really hit it off and a new story began to develop. From long walks around Green Lake, to exploring new breweries or Sundays spent out on a boat hanging with their friends in the sun…it did not take long to realize they wanted to pursue life together, hand in hand.
Candice’s mom shared a sweet gift with Candice – a photo of the two of them together when Candice was a little girl. It was such a sweet and tender moment :)
This setting could not have been more perfect for the beautiful couple!Candice + Brandon have over 100 years of successful marriages behind them! What a beautiful legacy!
Oh yes. There was a llama.. and my heart skipped a beat!
I love it when couples take a few moments for themselves to celebrate being married! It’s a joy filled heart that is impossible to replicate!
Let the celebration begin!!
Candice baked her own wedding cake! She recently started her own bakery business called Eat More Cake by Candice and after sampling her desserts at the wedding, I can say she is going to do really well!
