Real Wedding: Danielle + Cameron

Photographer: Lloyd Photographers  | Planning: ELEGANT AFFAIRS |  Ceremony Venue: JBLM Main Chapel  |  Reception Venue: Heritage Room | Flowers: Jen's Blossoms | Officiant: Father Robert Glasgow  | Caterer: Occasions Catering  | Hair & Makeup: Pacific Artistry  |  Transportation: Olympic Limousine

From the very beginning, we fell in love with this sweet couple who moved from Texas. Cameron being stationed at JBLM, decided to hold a Catholic ceremony at the JBLM Main Chapel with an honorable Saber Arch grand exit. To celebrate with their closest family and friends, the reception was filled with southern charm and the look of Fall in the PNW with festive DIY decor, harvest pumpkin centerpieces and custom made wooden round favors. With Danielle glowing as a southern belle in her dress and cowgirl boots, Cameron in his military uniform, they closed out the night taking sunset photos in front of the State Capitol and busted out a boot scootin boogie country line dance or two. In most recent and very exciting news, we would like to say a big Congratulations to Danielle and Cameron who are expecting their first baby!

Real Wedding: Michelle + Taylor

It all began at the Seattle Wedding Show where we met Michelle and Taylor. They were a very fun, loving, and adventurous couple who wanted to celebrate their special day at Crystal Mountain. Fast forward to several months after planning, and things began to heat up a bit. Literally... their venue at Crystal Mountain was in danger due to the unpredictable wildfires of the PNW. Left with three days to tie the knot, Crystal Mountain had closed and we had to find a new venue as well as caterer. Even though they couldn’t have the scenic gondola ride or Mt. Rainier backdrop for their wedding, it was just as uniquely beautiful behind castle walls at Mystique Ranch. It was our first time doing a wedding there and we loved it! It felt like a fantasy wedding with a modern day rustic twist. As extra entertainment, guests were able to enjoy the barn animals, yaks, and even a peacock! Though there was a statewide fire ban and couldn’t light sparklers for their magical send off, we used white LED balloons to create their own perfect fairy-tale ending. Michelle and Taylor’s will definitely go down as one of the most unforgettable.

For Caitlin and Hamed, planning a Labor Day wedding in Seattle while living in northern California could be tough but not for this couple. The color scheme of navy blue with accents of soft pink and white was perfect for a wedding bringing two families and cultures together.

One of the highlights of this day was the double ceremony performed by both the bride and groom’s fathers. The bride’s father performed the American Ceremony while the groom’s father performed the Persian Ceremony complete with a beautiful table.

It was all about the little touches infused in throughout the day, from their photo table cards to the personalized cake toppers- everything was gorgeous!
