Back in 2011, my husband Beau & I went to Sasquatch Music Festival for the first time with a small group of friends. We just so happened to be driving right behind a super rad couple, which meant that we would camp next to them. We had such an awesome time with them, that we caravaned with them in 2012 to make sure we camped together.
In August of 2015, that couple got married on Orcas Island and I got to photograph it. Life is pretty cool sometimes.
Orcas Island is definitely one of my favorite places, now. As someone who practically grew up in rivers and lakes, the vibe on the island feels exactly like home. The day before the wedding, Beau and I spent time at Doe Bay, lounging in lawn chairs and drinking IPAs. It felt like we were in McCall, but when I looked down into the water, there were mussels. So cool, right?
I just know that Orcas Island is about to be one of our regular weekend getaways.
And that’s why Austin & Stefanie picked the island for their wedding. And Rosario Resort is the perfect combination of laidback and class. I’m so thankful I was able to be there on such a special day for my friends in the perfect place.
