This was my first wedding of the 2017 wedding season and it was the perfect way to kick off what would become a hectic year!
When I first met Alicia & Colin over lunch they had been searching for someone to run their wedding for a bit and just hadn’t clicked with anyone yet and by the time we were done talking…I knew that we would all “vibe” and hopped that they saw it too. Luckily they did!
Alicia and Colin’s big day happened in early spring at The Lodges on Vashon. The Lodges is such a unique and beautiful spot “…where modern style meets Mother Nature.” (seriously, check out this venue if you are in the market for a wedding that can illicit that intimate feel.) Their wedding completely matched who they were as a couple and had a total island vibe: relaxed, classic, and in a naturally beautiful place. They hired FANTASTIC vendors that really brought to life what they envisioned their wedding day to be. Miranda Hattie Photography captured their day so stunningly and was a joy to work with. Botanique Flowers created beautifully colorful, bold and confident bouquets and boutonnieres. The food from Earthen Chef was sheer farm-to-table perfection! Oh, and Shutter Bus Co. provided unlimited VW Bus photo booth entertainment
Alicia & Colin hosted their friends and family for a whole weekend of fun on Vashon and even hosted my husband and my girls for the weekend. The night before the wedding everyone enjoyed a night of paella and square dancing. Take it from em, it was SO FUN! Oh on the morning of the wedding? The father of the groom planned a “fun run” for anybody who wanted to join…and the bride & groom themselves partook in it! I loved working on this wedding. Alicia and I were in contact so much it felt like we became quick friends! I still miss having to reach out to her on the regular basis, but I have warned her that I plan to keep in touch!
It turned out to be a gorgeous, sunny weekend that was full of friends, family and love. Isn’t that what it’s all about? Get a glimpse into their day below!
I don’t even know where to start with these 2 and their amazing day at Lairmont Manor in Bellingham!
Alex & Kris were referred to me by the amazing B.Jones Photography (who also beautifully captured this day!). Kris is her her brother and she knew that I would take great care of them on their wedding day. You may have heard of Kris (Orlowski) before,he is a Seattle-based singer/songwriter who tours nationally and who has had his work featured on a variety of primetime television shows. He has some beautiful songs, you REALLY should go take a listen.
This couple was so fun and easy going to work with and that ease and liveliness shone right through on their wedding day.They focused on all the right things on their wedding day and surrounded themselves with the love of their family and friends. It was such an honor to bear witness to. There were so many great moments in this day, but some of the highlights include: DONUTS(!), A gorgeous wedding gown, one of the most picturesque wedding parties I have ever seen, a Mother-of-the Groom speech that I don’t think I will ever forget, and the amazing surprise that Alex arranged for Kris during their ceremony.
Alex secretly coordinated having some of Kris’ friends & bandmates sing his song ‘Stone by Stone’ while her bridesmaids walked down the aisle. He had no idea it was happening and well, let’s just say the emotion was palpable in that moment…you’ll be able to see it in the pictures below!
Take a gander at their beautiful, greenery filled, bohemian-esque wedding day. It was obviously no fun at all…
Kris & Alex I wish you nothing but the best and I KNOW you will have a lifetime of happiness and then some!
Sara & Josh were referred to me by a mutual friend, and boy am I glad she made the connection. These lovebirds met on Tinder and that spark ignited what would turn out to be a true love story. S & J were so great to work with and had such a focused vision of what they wanted their wedding to be and when I initially met them over coffee I could tell that Sara was going to be an awesome (and super organized) bride. Then when she told me that she had jewel tones in mind for her wedding?…well I was sold!
The day at WithinSodo went off with out without a hitch and was so beautifully captured by Kirsten Marie Photography. Every time I look at the photos from this day I want to relive it over-and-over! Kirsten was on top of her game, was super professional, fun and amazing to work with. Kirsten is newer to the Seattle area and is such a great addition to the photography scene here!
From the chic industrial feel, food truck dinner, ice pops, late night Dick’s burgers, and all the personal touches that fit them perfectly…this wedding was a dream to be a part of. I’m sure after checking out the photos you will see why!
Thank you for letting me be a part of your day Sara & Josh!
