A Bellingham, WA, Wedding at Carson Creek Estate

Christina and Ethan’s wedding in Bellingham, WA, was at Carson Creek Estate under clear skies after heavy rain on the preceding and following days. The couple felt authentic enthusiasm and support from their friends, resulting in a straightforward and memorable celebration.

Christina and Ethan, with over five years of companionship, share a loyal and encouraging bond. Despite their demanding careers, they find solace in curling up on the couch, enjoying favorite shows, and playing cards or board games. Weekends are reserved for visits to friends and family, indulging in appetizers and drinks at restaurants. Recently, they’ve discovered a shared interest in wine tasting, adding a new dimension. When Christina and Ethan contacted me, I was thrilled to document their classy winter wedding day.
