Noah and Keri Ballard - Jacob Smith House, Lacey Washington

        This summer has definitely not been your typical Northwest summer; we have had weeks of beautiful, clear sunshine-filled days.  And just such a perfect day dawned for Keri’s and Noah's outdoor ceremony at the Jacob Smith house in Lacey, Washington.  When I arrived, I fell in love with the beautiful landscaping and the immaculately restored 1900's house.  It was the perfect location for Keri and Noah, a blank slate to which they could add many of their own personal touches to make this day even more special.  All the bridal party’s and the bride’s bouquets were made with lavender, which made the whole day smell just beautiful. Another personal touch was that Keri's uncle David Ellis was the officiate.  
       Keri and Noah also opted for a first look, which I love.  It allowed them to have a very special moment alone before the ceremony.  The beautiful ceremony overlooked the property’s amazing gardens with Mt. Rainer rising in the background.  With delicious catering from Longhorn BBQ, all the guests enjoyed great food and drinks.  Keri and Noah topped off the evening with dancing, their first dance to Jason Mraz's “I Won't Give Up.”  It was a perfect ending to a glorious day.  

      Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Ballard and best wishes to you both as you begin this next chapter of your lives!
