July 17th, 2009 turned out to be a beautiful day to tie the knot. We were thrilled to be asked to capture their most special day at The Orting Manor, a gorgeous Victorian-style venue in downtown Orting. Travis’ brother, Matt Shumate, came out from Spokane to help cover the wedding.
It was a hot day in the shadow of Mt. Rainier, but both both Adrian and Melissa remained remarkably relaxed and cool. I cried through the entire ceremony — wedding’s just have that effect on me! The reception was also sweet. Travis and I were able to dance to “Passing Afternoon” by Iron and Wine — the same song we danced to on our own wedding day.
