NatureBridge Evening on the Lake

At NatureBridge’s Evening on the Lake we coordinated a captivating evening at MOHAI to support environmental science education in Olympic National Park.

Alison and Christi Wedding

Alison and Christi were married in the backyard water view property of a family friend. The relatively small space was naturally beautiful and minimally decorated because of the surroundings. The photo booth and ipod playlist kept the party going into the warm summer night. Photography done by Catie Cleveland of Catie’s Photography.
