A Washington wedding weekend with a sweet circle ceremony

Photos by Kristen Marie Photography

Looks like the fun started for Sam and Erin the day before their summer wedding… and by fun, I mean a completely chill, totally relaxing, sun-soaked evening by the water. The two brides swam and goofed off with loved ones to kick off their wedding weekend. The laid-back vibe carried over to the next day while the couple got ready together: Sam in strapless white and Erin in a jacket and cuffed pants. These two skipped the frill and went for details straight from the heart. The couple have got complementary jewelry going on (Erin's jeweled bolo tie, gah!!!), Sam wore a necklace that says "Erin," and the brides even walked into their ceremony circle together.

  1. My FH and I are planning on having circle seating! We initially got lots of comments about having our backs to people (to which we said it was no better than a church), but we love the symbolism of being literally surrounded by family and friends.
    This wedding does it the seating beautifully – Congrats, Sam & Erin!

  3. Envy! This all looks so beautiful, serene and right. And I LOVE the bolo tie. Have been looking for one to buy and wear low/loose, myself.

    I want to swim in that lake. Such a gorgeous dream.

  4. LOVE! I need to know where the couple found the marquee lights! This is my dream. I need them!

  5. Where did Erin find that Bolo tie?? My partner and I have been searching for the perfect wedding outfits, and even though we love pretty much everything about this wedding, that bejeweled bolo tie is the most perfect thing. Any hints or clues about vendors or sites for similar jewelry would be so much appreciated.
