Lake Crescent Lodge Inspiration - Port Angeles, Washington

I’m one that truly loves most things. I don’t have a “favorite” anything because I love adventuring to new locations, restaurants, and styles but Lake Crescent Lodge will always be the exceptions to my normal. This location is 20 minutes from where I grew up and it remains THE most gorgeous location on planet earth to me. It’s a place that I go to think, float on floaties and drink Pepsi and chow down on Doritos in the summertime, hike around the lake and jump off the bridge into freezing water, and so on.

Kim + Mike - Quebec City, Quebec Canada

When you start a career with no experience, you truly don’t know where it’s going to lead. If I could predict, CRW would have done a wedding in London before we would ever have an opportunity to do a wedding in Quebec. First off…can anyone off hand tell me where on a map Quebec is?

Tara + Kris - Los Angeles, California

A couple month ago Kathryn was asked, “so you guys have a lot of bridezillas?” Her response was: “Carly Rae Weddings doesn’t attract bridezillas.” This gallery is actual proof that she’s right. I feel so bad ass around Tara and Kris. Maybe it’s my ego shining through...maybe I shouldn’t feel so cool, but I do.

Linda: a seamstress, screenwriter, prop stylist…Lance, a competitive free diver (Yes: you read that correctly), spear fisherman, model, actor, chef. When they hired our team to make their wedding come to life, they invited me over for dinner for Sashimi. I, being from Washington, the land of the best seafood, was…honestly not expecting to get any good seafood in Los Angeles but I complied. OH MY GOD was I proven wrong.

Brooke + Paul - Long Beach, California

Paul taught me how to poach an egg in 2010. He was over at my house where I lived with 5 other girls and naturally that’s what you do when hanging out. I’ll never forget him giving me the reasoning for adding white vinegar…whirlpool-ing the water, and then drop the egg in and turn the water down to a slow simmer.
