Five2Five Buckley, Washington | Sam & Betty



I can not iterate enough how blessed I have been this wedding season with my line up of couples! They have all been so wonderful to work with. Betty & Sam made a last minute venue change to a brand new wedding venue in Buckley, Washington. After this wedding, The Five2Five has made my top ten list of favorite venues in Washington! I absolutely love this place and the amazing people who are running it! Lisa, Courtney, & Karley are an amazing team. The landscape is so well cared for and the renovations on this beautiful old church are spot on.

Betty and Sam had a friend officiate and you would never know he wasn’t a public speaker full time. His ceremony write up was perfection and everyone agreed! The cake was also made by a friend, Kylee Schurmann, and holy smoke did she do an amazing job. It’s one of my favorite cakes this year! She also made the best sugar cookies I have EVER had. I had to track her down for the recipe and I will seriously go out and buy the ingredients the minute she sends it to me! Every wedding I’m finding Etsy to be the go-to source for 2018 brides! If you’re planning a wedding and need some custom details, Etsy is the place to be.

Betty’s flowy gown was from New Beginnings Bridal Studio. I’ve worked with countless brides whose dress came from New Beginnings and they all have nothing but good things to say!

Here’s a surprising one! Haggens Grocery in Lakeland Hills did all of the flowers! Flower crowns and all of the bouquets. I was absolutely expecting a boutique florist but Haggen knocked it out of the park.

Hair by Brieana Medford Stone. I had trouble finding a page for her so pleads DM me if you have a link or Insta account for her and I’ll add it here!

D.J. Suave threw an awesome party and had everyone dancing until close! His set up always looks so professional and he brings the most fun lighting!

The way Betty’s daughter, Amelia, was incorporated into the ceremony and entire day had everyone misty eyed and so filled with love. I balled during toasts like they were my own family (what’s new? I love you guys all so much!) CONGRATULATIONS to Betty, Sam, and Amelia on your legally joined family! This was the most amazing day and I can’t wait to complete your gallery over the next few weeks! ENJOY this fun sneak peek in the mean time and thank you to all friends and family who made this the best day! ♥

Written July 2022 To all the LGBTQ people who fell in love with their best friend on accident. I see you. This was mine. I hope you find healing, too. To the girl I loved first, I’m 31 now. I think you turned 30 last month. I’ll bet you celebrated in a beautiful way. I […]

Hi, there. I’m back. Let’s book Spring 2023 Family Photos. I know I have to prove it. It’s been a wild few years since Rona and it’s taken me a long time and a lot of heavy consideration to come back to shooting full time. We’ll take it one day at a time. Baby steps! […]

Something all of my readers should know if you don’t already? My updates are never permanent. Not even close. What we’re “for sure” up to one week might change in a random two hour conversation at 10:00pm on a Tuesday. I love that for our life. I love having time and location freedom. I feel […]
