Ryan and Allison had a lovely backyard wedding at their home in Olalla. Tay and I started off the day in different locations so we could get photos of both the girls and the guys getting ready. Afterward we met up at Jerisich Dock in downtown Gig Harbor for a first look. I love when couples decide to buck tradition by seeing each other before the wedding. It makes for such a great, romantic moment that’s more difficult to capture during the ceremony. When we finished with the bridal party at Jerisich we went to Wilkinson Farm to get some photos in the grove of trees there. It must have been the hottest day of the week, but their backyard wedding was amazing despite the heat. It was a small ceremony that was full of laughs and emotion. There were so many photos I wanted to share from this wedding that I’m going to do the same thing I did last time and split it into two posts. Expect more shots from their reception tomorrow evening!
