Love is a Great Adventure! Congratulations Lily and Aaron Shouldis! Married 05/04/19

Love is a great adventure! Lily and Aaron met each other in third grade. And since then, they dated for eight years sharing friendship, faith, and life’s experiences. They married each other, after a two year engagement, on a beautiful spring day, on May 4, 2019, in the presence of family and friends at Lincoln Avenue Bible Church in Bremerton, Washington, followed by a grand reception held at Port Gamble Weddings & Events. It was such a pleasure to do their wedding photography. Rich and I wish Lily and Aaron many happy years together! Thanks so much too for the team of CME Experience for helping to organize the day and keep everybody on track. We love you! BTW, Lily’s gorgeous dress is by Ines Di Santo. Below is a preview of Lily and Aaron’s stunning wedding photos by Jolly Sienda Photography.

Valentines Day Wedding Photography and St. Valentine

What’s not to love about Valentines Day: candy, flowers, jewelry, stuffed animals, a lovely romantic dinner for two at a restaurant, a couples romantic weekend getaway, champagne, a wedding engagement proposal, and a Valentine’s Day wedding! Did you know the history of St. Valentine is open for interpretation. The holiday, from ancient Rome, is the festival of Lupercalia. Stories about St. Valentine vary from saying a priest took many wives against the Catholic Church and indulged in gratification and orgies; or Saint Valentine defied the emperors wishes and secretly married couples; and Cupid, the Roman God of Love and hearts is the heart of emotion. Whatever stories you choose to believe, today, on February 14, around the world, people celebrate Valentines Day with the one you love. Here is romantic wedding photography from a Valentines Day wedding!
