Casey and Kody-98.jpg

The wedding of Casey and Kody, quite honestly, was a family celebration more than anything else. I’ve photographed hundreds of weddings, and I’ve never seen such a family-centered event. Both Casey and Kody come from families that accept anyone and everyone from all walks of life, and hearing the stories of how they all intertwine and support one another was incredibly refreshing.

On the day of the wedding, both Casey and Kody greeted us with big smiles and warm hugs. This was an event that had been in the making for years, and you could feel the excitement as last preparations were being finalized.

Laurel Creek Manor in Sumner, Washington offered beautiful indoor and outdoor spaces, and the century-old estate was the perfect backdrop for day’s event. Natural light spilled in through giant windows, and a large field was the perfect spot to catch the golden-hour light.

After the celebration, everyone headed out to the field next to the barn to enjoy a surprise fireworks celebration— unlike anything I’ve ever seen at a wedding. Casey and Kody enjoyed the view as husband and wife, and their guests couldn’t hold back their expressions of awe.

Thank you so so much, Casey and Kody, for allowing us to document your wedding. The world is blessed to have good people like you, and I just know that as you live life together, you’ll continue to unite people along the way.
