Kellie Sutherland the day of her engagement
This week is a special one for Paper Passionista, on a personal level, as our very special friend, Kellie Sutherland, returns to Seattle with her fiance', Josiah Watson, for their elopement at Snoqualmie Falls.
Kellie used to live with us, and during that time she developed a special bond to the Seattle area, and all the beauty that surrounds it. So a year ago, when she and Josiah became engaged, she started thinking about coming back to Seattle for their wedding. After looking at a lot of different options, including a church ceremony at her church while she lived here, New Life in Renton, Kellie decided Snoqualmie Falls would be the perfect spot to capture the natural beauty of the area with close friends she made while she lived here.
Unfortunately, Kellie's family members won't be making the trip to Seattle for the wedding - they've never been here and don't know what they're missing - but Kellie followed my suggestion of making sure they were invited. We did a small order of 15 very sweet invitations that she sent to her close family members just so they'd know they are welcome if they choose to make the trip.
The wonderful Jan Domek of Jan Domek Photography has an elopement photography package Kellie will be using to capture all the beautiful moments of her Snoqualmie Falls wedding, and then we'll have a small post-wedding celebratory meal at the Salish Lodge
following the ceremony at the lookout. I'll share some photos later of the couple in their wedding attire, but wanted to share that even if you're keeping the wedding small it doesn't mean it can't be special. This will be a fun week!
