University of Washington Sylvan Theater Wedding Photography | Becca + Robbie

Wedding Photography at University of Washington Sylvan Theater and Hotel Deca in Seattle

Rebecca and Robbie met as students together at the University of Washington and fell in love while living abroad in Tokyo, Japan. Robbie wanted to propose in Japan, while Becca’s family was visiting, but was thwarted by the earthquake in 2011. Instead, in a move that took them full-circle, he waited a few weeks until they took a trip home to Seattle. While walking the UW campus with family and admiring the cherry blossoms in full bloom (how very apropro!), Robbie stopped to pluck one for Becca and gave it to her. He had done this every spring when they were students, but this time, he said “I have something else for you too,” and knelt to produce the ring from his jacket pocket. “I love you so much. Will you marry me?”

Becca tackled him. And the rest, as they say, is history.

After engagement photographs that we created together in Tokyo, Rebecca and Robbie were married at the Sylvan Theater (the site of the famous columns) on the University of Washington campus. Again, full circle! Afterward, they celebrated with friends and family at the Hotel Deca in the U District of Seattle. Their closest pals from Japan, who couldn’t make it to the wedding, had prepared touching video greetings for everyone to see in lieu of in-person toasts.

I have to say, the portraits that we made that day with these two are some of the most fun and spirit-filled I’ve ever photographed (also the best use of architecture! woo!). And the photobooth we set up at their reception was HILARIOUS and filled with laugher made straight into memories. See if you can spot the photo of Robbie doing the garter toss (with a 20-sided-dice garter, no less) — well, that garter made it into Hotel Deca’s ballroom ceiling, never to be seen again. Until, during the photo booth, Robbie pulled out the whiteboard and made a “replacement garter” for a photo-documented faux-garter-toss with his groomsmen. Classic!

Rebecca and Robbie, you know we love you, and we know you love each other. We hope you’re doing well in your new home and that your life together is filled with countless happy days. Congratulations!
