Summit Lake | Skipping Traditions

Updated: Oct 24, 2019

Katie and Connor went to high school together and started dating in sophomore year. They have been together for ten years. Not in any rush to get married, they always knew that some day they would. The two of them didn’t want a big wedding and weren’t into the idea of doing something traditional just for the sake of traditions.

Their vision of the perfect wedding day consisted of the two of them getting ready together. Which is just what they did at the Hatcher Pass B&B. Katie did her own hair and make up and she surprised Connor with a pair of socks she knitted for him to wear on their wedding day. They even matched his boutonniere. He loved them!

Katie described Connor as more gregarious and her more of a simple, sensible, introvert.

They have a dog-named Miller who they love to walk together. They also enjoy spending time at their local coffee shop, bird watching, appreciating nature and watching television together. He even helped her shop for her wedding dress.

Their short and sweet ceremony was officiated by Celtic Ministries at Summit Lake in Hatcher Pass. Then they toasted to their love and headed out hiking around Hatcher Pass together, enjoying the incredible mountain views all around the area.
