Nicole+Stuart | Woodsy Wedding at Kitsap Memorial State Park

Before I start gushing about Nicole+Stuart, let me first emphasize this… Kitsap Memorial State Park is one of theeee most underrated venues in my little humble opinion of opinions. If you dream of a woodsy wedding amongst the trees, views of the crisp sound and a kick ass hall for you and your guests to celebrate…it’s Kitsap Memorial State Park. I love love love this venue.

Nicole+Stuart…these two are real gems. They both have incredibly kind hearts and my time with them besides shooting their wedding was always spent laughing over a yummy cocktail and great food. When I asked Nicole when she knew Stuart was the one, she described a moment they shared having a steak dinner and a good bottle of wine while siting on the floor because he didn’t yet have a table in his studio apartment. *Girl, I can relate! I also took to fancy-ing my boyfriend while sharing many meals…sitting on the floor…in his studio apartment. That’s love, baby.

Stuart’s brother was his best man and his father was their officiant. And I really loved being witness to all three of them standing at the front of the ceremony awaiting Nicole down the aisle. Pro Tip: Family Matters. DO involve them in your ceremony because the foundation of your vows will increase exponentially.

Nicole+Stuart’s wedding day came to life via the combined visions of Natalie at Ginger Bee Events + Planning and Amy at Gather Design. The moss aisle runner adorned with lush ferns? Nailed it. Dj Beaux and Cho had the party absolutely rocking and I almost didn’t want to leave when our coverage was wrapped. *Don’t mind the creepy photographer just staring through the window pining for another song. And! Nicole’s insanely talented Uncle did the illustrations for their table cards and seating chart.

Quick recap: food, family, forest, ferns, views, love. Check, check and check! Here’s where you get to relish in their beautiful day. Thank you so much for having me as your photographer, N+S!

-always love, amy.
