Deanna & Mike met in the Pacific Northwest but the way their paths crossed is nothing short of a miracle. Deanna, the daughter of a dairy farmer from North Dakota, traveled to the PNW for an internship. The internship turned into a job offer, which she happily accepted. Mike, the Boston boy, had graduated college & found a calling serving our country. He was stationed at Joint Base Lewis McChord in the PNW. Their paths crossed at a restaurant in Tacoma & within a few years they decided to elope & have a courthouse wedding. With both of their families unable to witness the day, Deanna & Mike organized an incredible vow-renewal over Memorial Weekend in Woodinville Wine Country at Willows Lodge. “Some things are worth saying twice…” their invitation suite read, as they invited friends & family from North Dakota & Boston to the PNW for a weekend full of laughter & celebration. Deanna carried a bouquet of market fresh peonies, wrapped in her grandmother’s rosary. Deanna’s two-tone David Tutera mermaid gown was a show-stopper perfectly complementing the mismatched blush toned dresses worn by her bridesmaids. The groomsmen sported Boston scally caps & grey suits.
