{Jessica + Dwayne} Wedding Photography; The Villa at Little Cape Horn, Cathlamet, WA

May 29th, 2011

Jessica + Dwayne,

It’s been a priviledge to get to you know you both these last few months, learning your unique story of two in love in the military, and sharing in your wedding like old friends.  Even the little notes you leave each other on Facebook helped us understand how much this wedding meant to you both.  The DIY (Do-It-Yourself) details were awesome, from the hand painted umbrellas and fan, to the custom invitation, ‘I promise’ ring cup, the original song Dwayne wrote and performed (even we were teary!), the love letters you shared on your day…it was all unique, all YOU.

Thank you for letting us share in your elopement and travel to the ‘Italian-style villa of The Villa at Little Cape Horn in Cathlamet, WA.  It was beautiful place to shoot.  Having a couple cook their wedding meal, together with dress and tux in the kitchen was priceless!  Congratulations, thank you for serving our country, and may life bring you a wealth of joy together.

All the best,

B + W
