Dustin & Sarah

I remember meeting Dustin & Sarah for the first time at a Starbucks in Tukwila and noting how easygoing they were. We talked about how they met, how Dustin proposed, Seahawks football, and the CMA Festival in Nashville – and eventually we discussed their wedding day vision. With chemistry like that, I knew we were going to plan and present an AMAZING wedding reception for their family and friends.

And after the final farewell as Sarah & Dustin made their way to Africa for the honeymoon, I drove home full of adrenaline and excitement from the night that was. It was definitely a good night.

Dustin & Sarah’s reception was also the first wedding where I projected a color monogram on my brand new, 4700 lumen LCD projector. This is what the monogram looked like during the daylight hours:

Color me impressed. (Pun intended!)

When you combine great people, great vendors, and a great location, you end up with a great night of celebration. It’s been true before, and it was true on this night. Congratulations to Dustin & Sarah: it was an honor to serve you; thank you for allowing me to be a part of your wedding ceremony and reception.
