Intimate Boho Summer Wedding in Bellingham, Washington // Washington Wedding Photographer

Whether you’re considering postponing your wedding date or sticking with it— this is for you.

Alyssa and Dustin planned to get married in Lake Tahoe earlier this year and of course covid changed everything for them.

Alyssa was so stressed and didn’t know what to do, so we chatted a few times over the phone to figure out the best plan for them.

I gave her all the options and said “no matter what you choose— I’m here for you and we’re gonna get you married!!!”

Their plans completely changed but because she was open to new details— they fell into her lap so seamlessly. So just remember that YOUR DAY gets to be exactly how you want it to be— and it just might end up being even better than you could have imagined.

Alyssa and Dustin’s wedding was nothing short of timeless, romantic, and celestial.

They rented out Vine Creative Spaces in Bellingham, WA as their venue (which actually is a photography studio so the lighting was PERFECT!)– hello genius?! They got ready there the morning of, just in different rooms, and then had their first look outside in front of the vines and greenery. Dustin completely broke down into tears (I was seriously balling behind my camera hahaha)– and they took photos with their lil pup Elvis. (who passed away only weeks after the wedding– read Alyssa’s review below about how special these photos were because of it– so so sad).

Their ceremony was straight out of a dream with a crescent half moon as their arch backdrop and her veil from GibsonBespoke was filled with mystical and magical stars.

They celebrated with everyone back at Alyssa’s dad’s home only a few minutes up the road. Everything was filled with so much intention– it was seriously a blessing to be apart of!!!

My bride’s review:

There are no words for how we feel right now. I am so grateful that we found someone so caring and passionate to capture the BEST DAY of our lives! It truly was! And we are both blown away. Thank you for taking on such a task and doing it with such ease, professionalism, and care. Seriously, Bridgette, we love you! Thank you for doing what you do and being the person you are. It means the world to us to have these images, and it means the world to me to have a you as a friend. These pictures are so special to us. And so BEAUTIFUL! I’ve went through them a few times now and have been sharing them with our bridal party and family. It’s been particularly hard for me as well as my family with the loss of our boy. Elvis was so important. My heart breaks at how sudden and unexpected his sickness was. I’m so happy he was there for the wedding. Thank you for caring. We are really struggling over here and this was refreshing to be reminded of all the love we experienced in one day, our day. 💛”
