What a gorgeous day we had earlier this month for Ben and Melissa’s beautiful country wedding! You can tell how completely and tenderly these two love each other just by watching them together. We hit up some wonderful spots in north Whatcom County to capture some portraits before all the festivities began. The wedding took place in Lynden with a hilarious, eventful reception held at Melissa’s parent’s gorgeous old school house. I loved all the details that Melissa worked into the wedding—her flowers, the mason jars with candles, the buckets of white and chocolate milk, strawberry shortcake dessert—it all worked together to complete one beautiful day.
Thank you so much Ben and Melissa—you two were fabulous to work with! I hope you had a great honeymoon!
Check out my favorite images below as well as a video of even more of my favorites and a bit of video I captured throughout the day on my Canon 5D Mark II (have I mentioned how much I love that camera? My favorite!)!

I loved her dress!
My favorite part of the whole day was when Ben saw Melissa for the first time. I think he said “Wow” about 20 times—he couldn’t take his eyes off of her and I can’t blame him, she looked absolutely stunning!
