Look at this gorgeous smile!  Look at this beautiful lady!

I snapped this photo of Dee Dee just before she walked down the aisle at Swiftwater Cellars in Cle Elum to marry the love of her life, Jim.  DeeDeeJim

And the delight on Dee Dee’s face made my heart happy.  I was so thrilled to have the opportunity to officiate a wedding ceremony for a couple I would love to have as next door neighbors.  In getting to know Dee Dee and Jim, you could feel the love, devotion, courage and resilience of a loving partnership that will indeed stand the test of time.

Surrounded by 100+ very happy family and friends, Dee Dee and Jim exchanged vows and celebrated with sweet rituals including the pouring of art glass to ultimately create a gorgeous take-home memento from their wedding ceremony.

Including Jim’s son in the ceremony was very important and we all loved it when Dee Dee took her new step-son aside during the ceremony for a few private words.

Love. Love. Love.
