Maddie and Brian celebrated their marriage with a quintessentially urban Seattle wedding on the most beautiful, sunny October(!) day. It was a modern affair, hosted in Velocity Dance Center, where they fell in love with the exposed brick, wood floors, and delicious catering by Blue Ribbon Cooking. Sprinkled throughout the day were touches of vintage appeal — antique, reworked jewelry, a birdcage veil for Maddie, homemade pies (also by Blue Ribbon), a classy olive/eggplant/gray color scheme, and the monogram “R” for their new married name in various letterforms. With a wedding party that was one side Maddie’s sisters and the other side Brian’s brothers, the day was complete: good friends, good food, good beer, and good memories.
I had the pleasure of working with Jennifer Tai of Jennifer Tai Photo Artistry as my second shooter that day, and one of the most pleasant moments for us was taking a leisurely stroll for portraits with Maddie, Brian, and their attendants through Cal Anderson Park, Elliot Bay Books, and to other Capitol Hill landmarks for portraits. There are so many beautiful, artistic, urban Seattle snapshots that it was difficult to pick what to share! After that, during their ceremony, there was hardly a dry eye in the house. And then, the food, oh the food! This was the first of several weddings I’ve photographed at Blue Ribbon Cooking venues and they are always, always delicious.
Thank you, Maddie and Brian, for making including me in your day and making us a part of your lives. I enjoyed reliving a really good day with your photographs and I hope you will, too!
