Board games and waterfalls. A quirky Salish Lodge weddingWesley and Nancy

night wedding at Salish lodge

It was fitting that my last wedding of the year was at the same venue as the first. The beautiful Salish Lodge played host to this intimate and quirky wedding celebration. Nancy and Wesley were two people that I immediately connected with, with similar passions. They loved creating things, board games, good food, the outdoors, and lots of good friends. I really loved the very personal touches they extended to their guests. My wife, the reader, was blown away that they had purchased and wrapped individually selected books for all of their guests. I loved that they stayed up late playing board games together. And I LOVED their bulldog, who had about as much character and stubbornness that I could handle (before stealing her that is).  Natasha and I really had so much fun being a part of their day, and we felt like we were invited guests. For dinner they had the best food I think I’ve ever had at a wedding. Sous vide lamb for Tash, and braised duck for me, both were absolutely out of this world delicious. Other highlights from this wedding for me was the floral arrangements done by down to earth flowers, the pinky swearing during the vows, and their dog watching Wesley tie his bow tie.

I hereby pink swear. . . Nancy forgot her Bouquet on this part of the shoot, so we made one. Toasts are a favorite part of most receptions for me. The Falls Terrace room at Salish is perfect for these cozy weddings. A beautiful bouquet by Down to Earth flowers. A collection of eclectic board games for later that evening. Guests love have themselves photographed while eating. Personalized book picks for each guest.
