Madison Park engagement

I just realized today that it’s been FOREVER since I’ve posted an engagement, so I figured what better to start the ball rolling than to post my most recent session from this past weekend. So, feast your eyes on all the lovely from Katie and Josh’s Madison Park engagement. These two are just so sweet together! I’m so excited for their Karma Vineyards wedding next June; I met Katie when she was a bridesmaid at another fantastic couple’s wedding so I know how completely awesome this party is sure to be. Thanks for spending a lovely evening with me and here’s to all the laughs that are still to come. xo, Amy

WithinSodo_DannesseLydia_SoperPhoto_01

Dannesse and Lydia were married in what I can only describe as a warmly lush ceremony at Within Sodo last month.  It was amazing to me how Bretlyn Shea’s talented event team was able to transform this already lovely venue from mostly brick and wood into an incredibly rich, glowing, green space. I loved absolutely every aspect of this wedding: stunning florals, finely scripted programs and menus, fantastic food, a crazy-fun and equally charming wedding party and at the heart of it all, two wonderful brides in love.  Lydia and Dannesse are two of the most caring, kind, and beautiful women you could ever have the chance to meet and I feel so fortunate to have been asked to capture this incredibly meaningful union. I want to send a huge shout out and lots of hugs to all of the friends, family and fantastic vendors who came together to create and celebrate something truly magical for two incredibly special women. We love you Dannesse + Lydia!! xx, Amy

    Steph - Can’t believe I’m just now seeing this… Stunning photos! I loved working with Dannesse and Lydia on their wedding invitations and day of stationery. It’s so nice to put face sto the emails we exchanged. Looks like a beautiful, wonderful wedding!ReplyCancel

Seattle Aquarium Wedding

Kate and Jeff’s Seattle Aquarium wedding was nothing short of magical, which was the perfect setting for this superbly suited pair. Gorgeous flowers, a ceremony backdrop of swimming fish, a hysterically funny bride, an immensely charming groom, kind and thoughtful family, a tear-jerking rendition of The Glory of Love sung by Kate’s mother (the incomparable Lucie Arnaz), a surprise drop-the-mic vocal performance (with dance number!) by Kate for her new husband, fantastic music, a sparkler exit spilling out into the streets of Seattle… It’s tough to know where to start when talking about all of the many things I loved about this beautiful day, which is why showing is generally better than telling. I feel so incredibly fortunate to have had the chance to capture all of the love on this most special of days.  Huge hugs and many, many thanks go out to Kate, Jeff, their family and friends and all of the amazing people who came together to celebrate this perfect union!! xoxo, Amy

Dairyland Wedding

I was super excited about Kelsey and Brian’s wedding from the start knowing they were getting married at Dairyland, a perfectly rustic venue out in Snohomish.  Kelsey planned every last DIY detail to fit with the restored white-washed barn. I loved all of their yellow and grey details and the down home country charm of lemonade with BBQ for dinner. Although the rain rolled in moving the ceremony indoors, it was just a passing storm and guests had the chance to play games while waiting for the clouds to part so they could enjoy some time by the fire roasting s’mores. Big congrats to Brian and Kelsey, we had a wonderful day sharing in all the charm!! xo, Amy

Within Sodo Wedding

Candis and Lydia began their wedding day at the beautiful Hotel Sorrento in Seattle. Their ceremony and reception were at one of my favorite Seattle venues, Within Sodo. I have to say that my very favorite touch from their wedding day (other than their rainbow cake, ceremonial whiskey box sealing during the ceremony and brides-bartended receiving line) were their “favors”: Handwritten letters to each and every wedding guest. How incredibly thoughtful is that?! We were so very honored to share in Lydia and Candis’ special day and I feel very fortunate to now call these fantastic ladies my friends. Love to you both!! xoxo, Amy
