Led Zeppelin, craft beer, and tattoos at this bad-ass rock show-themed wedding

We had a rock show-themed wedding, which was inspired by our engagement shoot (by the fantastic Wild About You Photography) at a San Francisco music venue. Rye and I have a mutual passion for rock music, tattoos, and the macabre, so that theme covered lots of what we love!

We asked our guests to "channel their inner punk rocker" and wear clothing that reflected whatever "rock and roll" meant to them. There were lots of leather jackets, band shirts, combat boots, and colored hair.

An intimate bucket list wedding planned in two weeks after a cancer diagnosis

Due to circumstances beyond our control, our wedding plans changed in a major way. Ben and I had been together for 5½ years when he was unexpectedly diagnosed with stage IV melanoma in the fall of 2016. Ben’s illness put a lot of things in perspective for both of us and we got engaged a month after his diagnosis. We had a simple, non-religious ceremony on the beach. Our friends graciously offered their family cabin near Seattle, WA (in Quilcene, WA if you want to get specific) for the occasion and we had the entire beach to ourselves…

Velvet, faux fur, and waterfalls at this Franklin Falls wintry elopement inspiration

If there's ever a place that deserves to be photographed with lush flowers, faux furs, and black lace, it's Franklin Falls, about 50 miles east of Seattle with waterfalls, hiking routes, and tons of greenery. This wintry elopement inspiration shoot featured burgundy velvet, Jon Snow-worthy furs, jagged icicles, and a roaring waterfall.

It was a three-mile walk to the area, but the breathtaking views are most definitely worth it. Go see for yourself and let me know how much you pine for that black gown…
