Don't ever stop dating your wife and don't ever stop flirting with your husband!
. . .
It was a date day for Ryan and me! We joined in on the #solareclipse2017 fun and then played tourist around Pike's Place. (He had never been to @beecherscheese!!) So thankful that we both have flexible schedules and we can work in much needed days like these.
Who knew there are so many ways to customize Boutonnières? I sure didn't! But man, it is one of my favorite details to capture. Jessica & Greg's wedding had golf tee's in them, the wedding before had fishing tackle. What will be next?!
Hello, to our new followers and Happy Friday to everyone!! If you don't already know me, I'm Erika, the owner of #TheGreatestAdventure . (Ya, the one up the Bride's dress.) This photo, by @nickplusdanee, is a snapshot of my literal happy place!! #FridayIntroductions
One of my favorite parts about photographing weddings is getting to see all the creative and unique touches the bride and groom do to make their BIG day specially tailored to them.
For instance, since Kaycie & Chris LOVE to fish together, they turned their fishing boat into a cooler for all of the drinks. How stinking cool is that?! The coolest part about getting to be apart of weddings is, no matter how many of them have the same theme, colors, or location... not one will ever be the same. What are some of the neatest decorations, themes, and or traditions you have seen at weddings?
They say rain on your wedding day is good luck, tying the knot in the rain makes it harder to loosen, strengthens the bond.
Rick + Allie danced in the rain with their friends and family by their side and I honestly don't think anyone will ever forget that moment.
These two!! Surrounded by incredible beauty but he couldn't take his attention off of her! #sneakpeek

Let's talk about yesterday. It was amazing. I rarely cry at the weddings I run, because honestly I'm usually to busy to....but this wedding was special. From the awesome wedding party, to the special surprise she planned for him during the ceremony, right down to the amazing heartfelt speeches...I didn't cry, but I did get a little misty eyed. Feeling all the feels for sure. What makes it even more awesome is that these 2 are so crazy busy that I NEVER (not once) met them in person until rehearsal yesterday morning. These 2 just felt like home and are just my speed. Wishing them a lifetime of love and happiness though I'm pretty sure they have that down already. #LastLaChance

Remember that little Dream Elopement Contest we mentioned?! Remember how we couldn't tell you the winner?! Well, we no longer have to keep our lips sealed. They're engaged!!! M & J knew they wanted to elope but he hadn't actually proposed yet! M entered the contest without telling J. (In fact, he told her that he forgot to enter when she asked about it.) When they won, he asked us to keep it a secret until he could pop the question, IN SPAIN!! So happy for you two and can't wait to work with you on your dream elopement!! Salud!
"Please pace yourself so we don't have to." 😉
