“For Every Blue Moon and Berry Burst Moment, there’s been you.”

That was on a placard at the head table, and Sarra had made sure to pull me aside and let me know what it means. They just happened to be drinking BJ’s Berry Burst during some high points in their relationship. For bad days, they always seemed to be reaching for a Blue Moon beer. It’s a sign of a great relationship when you’re there for both the good times and the bad. Sarra wanted to make sure that the couple’s special saying made a sweet little appearance at the wedding.

The couple got ready at the lodge, and then we loaded up the cars and headed off into Battle Ground to the Sacred Heart Catholic Church. There was a grand ceremony with lots of friends and family filling up the pews.

There was a short receiving line, we signed the license, and headed back to the lodge.

Summit Grove Lodge is tucked up on the hills between Ridgefield and La Center, WA. Its a gorgeous log structure with an open hall for weddings and receptions, an upstairs loft for the bride and her party to get ready. The basement has been converted into a grooms area to get ready and hang out.In the back is a gorgeously landscaped grass area with two waterfalls and a giant tent to protect everyone from the typical Pacific Northwest weather.

Sarra’s father piped them in, and there was a tradition sharing of the whiskey and wishing the bride and groom many years of love.
