I met Sam and Jon at a Starbucks, as is the way of things for photographers these days, and over a frothy drink I got to know them. They are both middle school math teachers, they love to hike and explore the back country, and neither of them were looking for a "mushy" wedding.
But the emotions of the day won out, and a tear or two were shed
The ceremony was a short, standing wedding as the sun went down
The REI building used to be a factory, so it has weathered brick walls and high, dark ceilings. It was lit only by small fairy lights.
