This couple wished to be married in the Yukon, near one of the two large lakes. Sometimes it gets windy up there, but we have a few spots to choose from. Luckily, their wedding took place on a wind-free sunny day! Wildflower bouquet in hand and hiking boots on the bride's feet, they were off on a short hike to a private location.

We hit it off from the start. She was easy to talk to. I felt as if I were helping plan my own daughter's wedding. Meredith was a "do-it-yourself"
August 7, 2014 Laura's hand lovingly brushed the daisies, as we walked the garden path, where flowers blossomed, "Mom would have loved these daisies, her favorites. She is here with us now." This touching moment has remained with me. Laura shared her special day with her mother. Mom's spirit guided Laura down the path to her waiting groom. Vows were exchanged in the garden gazebo, followed by a mountain reception. Raspberries were freshly picked that morning. They now sat a t
