real wedding: Tanya and Gerry

A highlight of our past wedding season was when we had the opportunity to work at the historic Admiral’s House along with one of the most talented photographers in the wedding industry, Erich McVey.  This bride and groom were a joy to work with, and trusted us to create a wedding for them that was garden-lush and classically romantic. It was a perfect Seattle day, and a wedding that will remain a favorite of mine for a long time to come.

Grey’s nursery

I was advised by multiple people not to invest the time or money into a nursery, because our baby would never know the difference.  Three months into being a father, I can honestly say I’m so glad I ignored the opinions of those people, and I am so thankful we created a space that is just for our baby.  Putting Grey’s nursery together was one of my ways of bonding with our baby before he was born… preparing his room helped me to prepare my heart.  As I painted the walls and hung the drapes I wondered about our child growing within Jamie, day dreamed about who our child would become, and prayed I would be the kind of father our little one deserved. Before Grey ever entered the world, this room was waiting for him and it was filled with hope, peace, purpose and love.

Our nursery is one of our favorite rooms in our home.  The sun streaming in makes the room light and airy, and it just feels like an oasis from the busy world where we can watch Grey roll on the floor, read to him, change those dirty diapers and once he is just a bit older, this room is where we will lay him down to sleep.

Jamie and I worked together on every detail of this room, and had so much fun spending the last part of her pregnancy collaborating together on making it special. Here is a little glimpse into the world we created for Grey.
