A Rustic Beach Wedding by Calima Portraits

Wow, what a week of LOVE it was! Of course we all celebrated V-day Tuesday, our own wedding video was featured on SMP Destination on Wednesday,  and then my hubby’s birthday was yesterday so we enjoyed a nice dinner out together. We leave tonight to head to the city we call home (Atlanta) for a week where we’ll continue celebrating his birthday and my nephew’s 1st birthday, and also help my little sister package up her Save the Date magnets and bachelorette invites for her October 2012 wedding. Sounds like we’re in for another great week ahead!

But before we move into the weekend, I’m excited to share Heidi and Aaron’s intimate and rustic beach wedding! They married last August in Port Orchard, Washington off the beautiful Puget Sound. I honestly never thought of tying in a rustic theme with the beach- but it’s an absolutely brilliant idea! Top it off with the bride’s boots, an always fun photo booth, a rope swing, and s’mores over a campfire and you have yourself one sweet affair! Not to mention, I’m loving the bride’s sash and those adorable bridesmaids dresses.

Catherine Abegg from CALIMA Portraits holds the talent behind these perfect images from their day. Aren’t we so lucky she thought to share them with us?? Enjoy everyone…

Thank you so much for featuring this!!! I love your blog, and am happy to be here! I also meant to tell you before, that this wedding was very special to me because Heidi was a childhood friend of mine, but we hadn’t actually kept in contact over the years, and she just happened to stumble upon my work when she was searching for wedding photographers. Serendipity! Anyway, now it’s even more special to all of us… thanks to you. xoxo.
