Crystal Mountain Tacoma Wedding
Crystal Mountain Tacoma Wedding near Mt. Rainier. First of all, Mike and Melissa are such a sweet couple. They planned on a Chicago wedding, but COVID threw them a curveball. As a result, they decided getting married on a mountain top sounded pretty nice too. Crystal Mountain Resort has an incredible view, so I can see why they chose it.
In addition to having a first a first look with Mike, Melissa also had one with her dad that was very touching. Most importantly, I wanted Melissa and Mike to have a first look that would be as private as possible. Therefore we walked down one of the trails to find a nice overlook of Mt. Rainier where there was little other foot traffic.
Above all, their ceremony was personal and intimate with just immediate family. Melissa’s brother officiated the ceremony. They exchanged personalized vows that they had written. After the first kiss as newlyweds we took family pictures and then everyone toasted with a bottle of champagne. It was actually my personal favorite, Vueve Clicquot.
Finally, before I said goodbye, we were able to take this picture with these “just married” skis. It was a perfect way to end a beautiful day with these two. Mike and Melissa, I wish you all the very best in the years to come!
