Where There Is Love-Riverside


“To the attentive eye, each moment of the year has its own beauty.”
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

At Royal Scout & Co., our moment of beauty came to us in the backwoods of Washington State during a productive afternoon by the rippling Icicle River.  The lapping of the water besides our boat, the blushing shyness of our would-be bride and groom, and that stillness in the air that feels weighty with buzzing bees and and heavy, warm rays of sunlight...what a...
