Kitsap Memorial State Park Wedding
Olyvia and Justin married in the most perfect ceremony in the middle of the forest for their Kitsap Memorial State Park Wedding. The ceremony space was set up out in the middle of the woods in a clearing. For decoration, flower petals and branches placed in a circle created their ceremony area. Their friends and family gathered around the circle while they wed. I can’t imagine anything else more perfect for them.
The processional was led by Olyvia’s cousin playing the bagpipes. Followed by Olyiva and her father and step-father walking her along the path to meet Justin. When they met, Justin embraced Olyvia in a way that melted my heart. I could palpably feel the love between them. I hope all of their guests could feel it too.
After the ceremony, their guests made their way through the forest back to the Log Hall at Kitsap Memorial State Park. And the reception was ready to begin. The building was decked out with beautiful twinkling lights hanging from the ceiling and beautiful flowers on the tables arranged in birdcages. In addition, favors were individual sapling trees as a gift to the guests from Olyiva and Justin. The guests enjoyed dinner and drinks looking over Hood Canal.
Olyvia and Justin had a sweet first dance with each other, followed by Olyvia dancing with her father, Fred. And finally her step-father, Mike. One of the sweetest parts of the evening was a surprise mother-daughter dance with Olyvia and her mother, Gina. After cake cutting and toasts, Olyvia, Justin and their guests danced the night away.
I absolutely loved this wedding. It was casual but classy, rustic but polished and fit Olyvia and Justin perfectly. They are such wonderful people. I wish them a lifetime of happiness.
