Brandon and Emily’s wedding at Washington’s Denison Ridge was actually their second wedding day—and when you’re in love as much as these two are, who wouldn’t want to get married twice?
After a proposal at the Golden Gate Bridge, the couple held an early first wedding due to Brandon’s career in the Army, followed by the celebration at Denison Ridge a year later. Photographed by Brent Looyenga of Looyenga Photography, the event was full of special personal touches, from the table numbers featuring photos of the bride and groom throughout their childhoods, to the photos with the vintage car owned by Emily’s dad.
And, in lieu of a traditional guestbook, guests wrote well-wishes on quilt squares, which the bride’s mom sewed into a quilt for the couple (now we think this is one lovely wedding day keepsake!)
The couple served a BBQ spread catered by Nordic Smoke BBQ, previously featured on the Food Network’s TV show “Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives.” It was one of the bride and groom’s favorite parts of the day—along with the many family and friends that were there supporting them.
Emily and Brandon, thanks so much for sharing your beautiful wedding day with us!
