Rattlesnake Lake Wedding
Looking back on this day, I can’t help but feel extremely thankful to have been the one to capture it. I first met Cassidy and Colby on a trip to Washington. They happened to reach out about shooting their wedding a week before I was going to be in Seattle, actually! We met over some late night breakfast and instantly hit it off. I could tell that these two had an immense amount of love and compassion for not only each other but everyone they came across. Their story is easily one of the most beautiful stories I’ve heard thus far.
Cassidy and Colby both grew up near each other and went to the same Church. In fact, they have known each other since they were Toddlers. They were best friends for the longest time up until Colby started to pursue Cassidy. However, Cassidy simply asked that the two of them take time to pray and think about if they should enter a relationship together. Cassidy was about to go on a mission trip to another country so the two could only communicate via letters. While out of the country, Cassidy had come across a bible verse that spoke to her. I can’t recall the specifics of the verse but it essentially spoke to Cassidy to give this relationship a chance. Crazy enough, the next letter that Colby wrote Cassidy had the same verse in it as he had found it as well in his own time. The icing on the cake was when Cassidy’s grandmother urged Cassidy to give her relationship with Colby a chance. Cassidy’s grandmother passed away before she could see Cassidy and Colby get married so in her honor, the family released Balloons into the sky as Cassidy and Colby paddled away in a row boat into the middle of Rattlesnake Lake.
I was so excited to be apart of this day! Here are a few of my favorites from this Rattlesnake Lake Wedding!
