Les & Makesha’s Stanwood open air wedding!

Filed under: Wedding — Tags: , , , , , , , — photobby @ 8:12 am

What a absolutely perfect day!  The weather cooperated (and there was fear in my heart that it would not, oh yes!) in a wonderful blue sky, warm, sunny, spring is coming kind of way.  Les and Makesha picked a wonderfully convenient location, in an open field, with distant tree line and a warm breeze!  There was some great rustic “dwelling” in the background that gave some wonderful texture and interest to some of the group shots…

Makesha is a local Zumba instructor, don’t know what that is?  Well check her site out here:  www.zumbalocamama.com (I shot her benefit event a while back too, it’s here)  What did that mean for the dancing?  Lots of it!  With some great beats!  Good times!  I was a bit nervous about this wedding as Les is a photographer as well, He just had finished some work for NOAH (a local animal rescue) and has the images up on his site here: www.naturalinkphotography.com Really it worked out great!  Knowing a little bit about what I would be dealing with (bright light, no shade, mid afternoon) Les picked the location allowing me to keep my back to the sun for the most part, and the background was awesome, smooth grass into the trees.

Hair was got all styled up by Shelly Anderson with Salon Capelli, in Marysville.  You can catch her at 425-239-1217

Makesha’s makup was done by Tina Panich, she is a guru and super fun to have around getting all ready! Here site is going together as we speak, so for how you can reach her at fourtwofive-422-0690 and e-mail tkpanich@hotmail.com

The Cake was uber yummy!  Jessica did an awesome job!  The cake tasted as good as it looked.  You can see more of her cakes and reach her through her site at www.simplycaketastic.com

The music was hot even after the couple drove off into the sunset, you can reach the DJ’s via e-mail rocknkris@yahoo.com and by phone fourtwofive-359-9450

All in all it was a wild success, here are a few of my favorites…

::First dance::

Les and Makesha were were really sweet at the cake cutting, the second helping (after some dancing) was a little more mischievous!

(note the cake “facial” in the last shot)

Off into the sunset!
