Downtown Edmonds Engagement Session: Dianne + Mike

Apr 22, 2009 | Engagements

I met Mike and Dianne through one of my very first wedding couples, Sheila and Baylor (they had the amazingly gorgeous backyard wedding in fall 2007).  Like Sheila and Baylor, they are smart and funny and just a teeny bit geeky.  We all fit right in together in the most awesome way.  🙂

Mike lives on the east coast right now, and last week was his final visit back west before the wedding.  We had some pretty nasty weather the first day we tried to meet, so it was a huge relief when we finally found some sunshine.  Dianne and Mike took me up to Edmonds where Dianne has spent a lot of her life, and it was so fun checking out somewhere new (that’s a hint to all you engaged blog-stalkers out there – there are so many awesome places in the Seattle area to take photos!)  Thanks to Mike and Dianne for a very fun sun-washed evening by the sea, and I can’t wait for the wedding!
