Briana & Paul's Wedding: Semiahmoo Resort

Destination Weddings

One of the things I love about my job is experiencing so many different weddings in so many amazing places. Semiahmoo Resort is easily one of my most favorite Northwest destination wedding spots, not only because of how gorgeous it is, but also because of the laid-back, easy-going couples that are drawn to getting married here. Even though the day got off to a “rocky” start with the US World Cup loss to Algeria, the nothing could put a damper on the excitement and joy of Briana & Paul’s special day. It was so fun to capture them as they casually moved through their day at their own pace, allowing us to capture them and their love at every single moment. We’re really excited about their photos and hope you enjoy this little preview!

The wedding was stunning and the photos are as well. A beautiful setting, sunshine, with the blue of the water to match an amazing sky. A crowd full of smiles & tears,expressing total happiness for the bride & groom. When all is said and done, and the glamour of your special day is over, all that is left, are the memories in your heart, and...the photos. Every detail was captured, from the warmth of candlelight, dancing & laughter,to the twinkle in a brides eyes. My compliments to the Popes, you are an amazing team. My daughter is only 11, I hope you're still behind the cameras when her special day arrives. Best wishes to Briana & Paul, you have some magnificent memories in your photos. Cherish them always....
