Kenneth & Regina’s tea ceremony was such a fun experience for Evan and I. Not only was it amazing seeing Regina in her gorgeous traditional gown, it was interesting to see how they honored their families on such an important day. The day started with Regina being dressed by her sister and mother in this beautifully embellished red gown. From there, the bride ate a meal prepared by the family and was then whisked away to wait for her groom’s arrival. Kenneth and his groomsmen then played a few games prepared by the bridesmaids…all while Regina listened in hiding. It’s a fun tradition that once the groom has proven his love for the bride through these silly games that he “wins” her affection and they can see each other for the first time that day. Kenneth sang his heart out and won Regina’s affection! The couple then ate a meal together along with their family & wedding party. Tea was then served to their families and gifts were presented. It was truly emotional watching Regina and Kenneth open their gifts and I have to admit I fought back a few tears. Tender moments of true gratitude are normally rare to witness, but there were quite a few throughout the morning. I am so happy this couple invited us to share in their ceremony and feel honored we were able to capture this along with their wedding that afternoon.
Regina & Kenneth are an absolutely amazing couple. We’ve loved getting to know them for the past year and am so excited to share part of their special day with you. We’ll be posting their morning tea ceremony in a different post, but for now, we hope you enjoy their wedding images. It was a gorgeous day at DeLille Cellars and Regina looked beyond perfect in her Sarah Seven dress from the Dress Theory. It was a day filled beginning to end with love and laughter. One thing in particular I loved about their day was how often they took the opportunity to honor their parents and grandparents. It was a wedding we’ll never forget.
We absolutely adore this couple. Aimee & Ian are a fun creative couple who you can’t help but be happy around. These are only a few of my favorites from their engagement session at Discovery Park. Their wedding is later this year and we are so excited to capture their special day! Enjoy!
Natalie and Andrew’s wedding was an absolute blast. They both radiate happiness and it’s easy to fall in love with them. Taking place at one of our favorite venues, Sodo Park by Herban Feast, we knew right away the day was going to be amazing. Natalie’s father made almost all of the decor including those awesome hanging frames with the candles and the bookcases filled with flowers. Talent runs in this family, Natalie is one of the owners of Baked, a bakery in west Seattle who’s cakes have been featured at many of our other weddings. They’re delicious! Not only are these two great, but they come from incredibly kind families. Everyone made us feel right at home & part of the group from the beginning, which made our job that much more enjoyable. I hope you enjoy these images and get a glimpse into this darling couple’s relationship. I know they’re going to enjoy a lifetime of love & laughter!
It’s hard to deny how beautiful Jenni is. When we captured her wedding just over one year ago, I wasn’t sure I’d ever seen a more effortlessly gorgeous bride. When she contacted me to do a boudoir session in honor of her one year anniversary with David, I was so excited. We decided to create a 60′s sex kitten vibe with her hair and makeup and the transformation was incredible. She’s as sweet as she is seductive with her big blue eyes and red lips. This look was created by one of our favorite make up artists, Meghan Oliberos, who continually amazes me with her talent. I hope you enjoy this small selection of images from our shoot…it’s definitely one of my favorite boudoir sessions to date!
