Whidbey Island is on my top-ten list of favorite places to get away and on which to get married. The island is chock full of quaint, quiet little beachside towns. Langley, for one, is where I imagine retiring to a life of quiet contemplation, nature photography and just endless weekend beach combing.
The day started in relative regular PNW fashion, overcast with the clingiest hope of sunshine. And then it rained, and five minutes later, the sun came out all boss-like. This is fairly uneven for August but you just never know here, and have to be prepared for everything, weather-wise.
We began our day at the cutest little cottage on the island where Joe and his boys, as well as stepdad (also Joe, if I remember correctly), got ready.
Thank you to my friend-ors for yet another beautiful wedding collaboration!

These guys just made my day go so much funner.
And then we met Sara and her ladies at the Boatyard Inn. She came out to greet us, sweet Sara, in her curlers and bathrobe!
I’m not crying, you’re crying! Sara’s mom kept insisting she was merely teary-eyed or had allergies. We knew better.
This field of sweet peas, just for us!
No garden wedding is complete without giant Jenga.
Sara’s brother made these place “cards” himself as well as a bunch of wooden boxes and favors!
To be honest, I wanted to swing and then ran out of time.
We all fought to get on that swing.
When couples decide to go with wedding pie instead of cake, I actually do a little dance.
Yes, you get a piece of pie too, buddy!
Also, dabbing isn’t out of vogue yet.
Always end a wedding with a group hug!
And sparklers. SPARKLERS! Congrats Sara and Joe, on a wonderfully fun day!
More island weddings here and here!
