This is one of my favorite wedding stories. Karla and Mike, both from Whidbey Island, met and fell in love in San Diego. They would have loved to elope but instead devised a three year plan. Mike worked in Alaska fishing - yes, the 'Deadliest Catch' and Karla pursued her career in Hollywood acting and singing. After three years they finally saved enough to return to Whidbey Island permanently.
Karla's brother was an important part of the wedding, too. On the morning of the wedding his wife went into labor in San Jose. He was able to fly in for the ceremony but had to immediately fly back. Questions was, would he get back in time?
We spent three days getting to know this wonderful family and explore the beauty of Whidbey Island. It was early spring, the weather was perfect and flowers were bursting into bloom. Be sure to notice the pair of Bald Eagles we caught at the top of the trees towards the end of the film!
