Mrs. & Mrs. Harris – An intimate look inside the wedding of Mercedes & Ashley

This past June I flew to Lacey, Washington for a celebration of life, love, and marriage as my younger sister wed her girlfriend in a beautiful, non-traditional ceremony that would join these two hearts and souls for eternity. The evening was beautifully captured by photographer, Joshua Taylor.

Although this was a non-traditional wedding and included things like the first look, a mother-daughter dance and two brides, it also nicely incorporated some age-old traditions that we’re all familiar with.

Venue

The Harris wedding was held at The Grand Holiday Ballroom in Olympia, WA.

The First Look

Brides were led into the room with their eyes covered and sat back to back while guests counted down to the moment when they would turn around for the First Look. Both brides looked absolutely stunning!

This was not only Ashley’s first time seeing Mercedes in her wedding gown, it was the first time she had ever seen Mercedes in a dress before.
