October 23rd, 2016 couldn't have been a more beautiful day for a wedding here in the great Pacific Northwest. Not too cold, not too warm and there weren't any rain clouds looming overhead. Robert and Keesa wanted a wedding surrounded by family and friends, a good time, great food, and memories to remember forever. Their wedding certainly over delivered on all of those aspects.
Keesa had eight bridesmaids and Robert had seven groomsmen. Keesa said she was kind of going for the "sister" feel as all of her bridesmaids were either her sisters, sister in laws, or soon to be sister in laws. The Castaway has a gorgeous bridal suite that allows the brides to get ready in a spacious room and away from everything going on in the ceremony and reception area.
The groom and groomsmen got ready off site but had the groom's mother pin their boutonniere's on.
The ceremony was incredibly beautiful. Keesa and Robert both looked amazing and you could see the love that just poured off of both of them. Happiness in its truest form.
After the formals and signing of the marriage certificate we were ready to announce the new Mr & Mrs and get ready for the reception. The groomsmen really were amazing sports during all of their formal portraits even if all they really wanted to do was "get their drink on."
Time to announce Mr & Mrs. A beer in the hand of the groom and a flute of champagne in the hand of the bride. Starting the reception off with a bang!
After all that partying guests lined up to give the bride and groom a send off with sparklers. Truly a magical night and send off!
And they lived happily ever after...... Congratulations to Keesa & Robert! May they have the greatest adventures that marriage gives them.
