Melrose Market Studios Wedding: Katie and Travis

My apologies for how long this blog post is, but I really didn’t want you to miss a thing.  I really, truly, love this wedding.  Katie and Travis planned such a FUN celebration for their day- all about surrounding themselves with friends and family to create some amazing memories… and that they did.  Katie was a knock out in her gown, the decor was flawless, and the food amazing (hello Skillet Food Truck!), but most important, everyone was so genuinely happy and it was a smashing good time. And a shout out to Perfectly Posh Events- everything went flawless.  A good coordinator is SO worth it!

Some of my favorite things:

Have you ever seen such a beautiful bride?  Katie, you are gorgeous inside and out.

Their bridal party had male & female attendants on both sides.  I love it when couples break tradition when it means making their wedding more ‘them’.  Both Katie and Travis were surrounded by their favorite people.  The best!!

Their guestbook was a marriage bucket list- guest wrote activites to be ‘crossed off’ by their first, tenth, and twenty-fith anniversaries.  What an awesome gift that will last the next 25 years of their marriage!

They had a good friend marry them.  When it’s the right kind of friend for the job, I always love this.  You might recognize their officiant from THIS SUPER CUTE ENGAGEMENT SESSION.  Awesome job Todd!

Their cocktail hour was held next door at Still Liquor.  Such a fantastic way to keep the party rolling.

Cinnabon in lieu of wedding cake.  No further explanation needed.  YUM!!

The wedding was the night before St. Patrick’s day, so at 11:00 Katie (with a fantastic new dress) and Travis suprised their guests with a full blown St. Paddy’s celebration including Irish music, green attire, and of course, green jello shots.  These kids know how to throw a good party.

Katie and Travis- thank you SO very much for inviting me along on this day.  You two are the perfect pair, and working with you was nothing less than wonderful.  So happy for you both!

Seattle Aquarium Wedding: Brittany + Ben

I have such a back log of weddings I’m dying to share- so let’s get started!

Brittany and Ben’s Seattle wedding was definitely a memorable day.  The day began with some getting ready pictures at Hotel 1000.  Brittany and Ben exchanged letters before seeing each other.  I love this for two reasons: 1. It’s an opportunity to put your feelings in ink.  We often forget to really tell someone exactly how we feel about them.  2. What an amazing keepsake to have from your wedding day!  They will be able to read those letters on their 50th anniversary, and pass them on to their children and grandchildren.  LOVE!

After getting ready at Hotel 1000, we hauled the bridal party to Pioneer Square and Seattle’s Sculpture Park for some photo field trips (two of my favorite stops for wedding day photos!).  I loved how the girls’ bouquets popped against those black dresses, and check out the guys’ socks- I die!

The Seattle Aquarium is definitely one of my new favorite venues for ’12.  If the weather is in your favor, you can have the ceremony on the gorgeous private pier behind the Aquarium- and it’s seriously a breathless view of the sound.  And inside, I was amazed at the transformation that space took on.  It went from a family-friendly activity for your toddler on a rainy day, to a modern, chic, ball room back lit by that gorgeous blue aquarium light.  So perfect.

And please note that freezer full of delicious ice cream sandwiches!  Such a great option for your wedding dessert!

Brittany and Ben- I adore you both and I am SO happy I was able to share this amazing day with you.  Congratulations!!

30’s Inspired Engagement Session in Pioneer Square: Kris and Kevin

The first time I met Kris and Kevin, it took me no more than 2 minutes to know we would be a good fit.  Our meeting (if I can call it that), was more like sitting down with old friends- full of excitement, laughter, and a touch of playful banter.  Their chemistry is perfection- I am pretty sure just being in the same room together makes them both giddy.  And when they said they wanted their engagement session to give a nod to that 1930’s style, I was over the moon.  The engagement session is the PERFECT opportunity to think outside of the box, explore what you love, and have fun with your session.  You don’t always need a bunch of props/extras- sometimes a well executed wardrobe and our beautiful city are just enough for the perfect evening with the one you love.

Seattle Engagement Session: Kerry + Josh

We hit up downtown Ballard for this engagement session (anything in close proximity to Trophy Cupcakes wins in my book!).  Kerry and Josh are so full of energy and excitement.  Our session was filled with running, jumping, and a whole lot of giggling.  And between it all, I loved watching these two snuggle into each other-obviously so comfortable with the other by their side.
