Kadie and Doug wowwed us with their sweet, stylish, and budget-savvy wedding last September. Their wedding wasn’t just a coming together of loved ones, or the creation of a new family, it was also a homecoming of sorts for Doug, who had been away in California and then Oregon on residency most of the summer. When we took their engagement photographs at Cafe Vida, Molly Moon’s, and Gas Works Park it was the day before Doug returned to California for three months! In fact, it was only just after the wedding that he was able to return to Seattle to be close to his new wife. So this lovely, smile-filled day was very special for everyone.
While Doug got dressed at his family home, Kadie got ready at a really amazing rental house in West Seattle where her out-of-town family was staying. They then met at Interlaken Park, just across the street from Volunteer Park, where they had a very intimate friends-and-family-only wedding ceremony with a beautiful view of Lake Washington. One of their friends officiated while two stood by as Maid of Honor and Best Man and still another played beautiful, tearful ceremony music on the violin. Their Boston terrier, Bailey, watched with his “grandparents” as parents tied the knot.
We celebrated the gorgeous, Indian Summer day with wedding portraits at Gas Works Park on the Lake Union waterfront. The Seattle skyline from Kite Hill was pristine and colorful kites fluttered overhead as Kadie and Doug took a moment to soak up the sunshine and their newlywed status.
Their beachside reception was on the patio of a clubhouse at a private Lake Washington residence, where guests enjoyed wood-fired pizza and salads provided by Inferno Catering, delicious cake and cupcakes, and even the Molly Moon’s ice cream truck! It was the perfect way to spend a long, summer evening watching the sun set over the water. Congratulations again, Kadie and Doug!
