I couldn’t have asked for a better couple to photograph for my second wedding in two days! Maiya and Nick found me through my Seattle Met Bride & Groom magazine ad… I *love* that magazine. Even if I wasn’t in the biz I’d still buy every issue.
Their wedding was held in La Conner at the unique “At The Quarry” and the unbelievable food was done by Pacific Grill Events & Catering. Nick is a chef and works for Rational Ovens, which was used to cook the food for his guests. It was truly amazing!
I’ve never been to a wedding where the dancing, full on dancing, started before the bride and groom’s first dance! Even DJ Mike was shocked but went with it and cranked the music up. Both Nick and Maiya’s family’s were laughing and having a great time the entire night.
Maiya, an Everett Police detective, has a bit of OCD, as Nick would say, which played well into planning a wedding. Every detail was precise and beautiful. Thanks to both of you for an amazing day. I hope your camping trip is fun!
Maiya’s sister, Malia, uses a crochet needle to do the buttons on the back of her dress…Malia dusts Maiya with sparkle powder…Maiya gave her bridesmaids gifts enclosed in this super fun box from Plain Mary…The many sides of Nick…Maiya’s dad, whose footsteps Maiya followed when she became a police officer, playfully frisks Nick before he sees Maiya…Hmmmmm…. I wonder what Mike, the best man, could be frantically looking for…First look!It was Nick’s idea to do the “Run DMC” style photo with pretty much everyone!Oh hey… there’s Mike… looks like he found what he dropped! Maiya and Nick’s rings had fallen out of his pocket and he was looking for them for at least 10 minutes!Maiya’s parents walk her to meet Nick…Looks like Mike held the rings tight until he needed to give them to the officiant…The “Run DMC” pose makes another appearance…Check out this amazing food… they even did sliders and mac n’ cheese for the kids…They had “321 Foto’s” photo booth at the reception…Maiya gave all the kids who came to the wedding a bucket filled with fun toys…Dancing before the first dance!Some after toast portraits…“All the single ladies, all the single ladies…”This woman snagged the bouquet from a kid, then ran a victory lap around the reception!Nick was victorious in getting Maiya’s garter!Nick’s dad gave everyone a laugh with his photo booth prop outfit…Malia had a bit of an accident involving a viking helmet, a glass of wine, and this guest’s white dress!
