Kristina & Simon’s Oregon Wedding

Kristina and Simon were married one year ago. (Happy One-Year Anniversary, guys!) At that time, and for many months afterward, I was literally too busy to blog. (I know! Crazy!) I’m finally getting around to blogging some of my favorite weddings from last year, and this was definitely a highlight. Simon and Kristina got married at McMenamins Edgefield in Troutdale, Oregon. Lovely location and its multiple pubs fit in very well with Simon’s British culture (and entourage). With Kristina being from the South and Simon being from the UK, this was a destination wedding for them. Since the Pacific Northwest can be very “iffy” at this time of year weather-wise, it was pure magic that this day was not only sunny but HOT. Wonderful!

Here are the highlights from Kristina and Simon’s wedding day!

Kraig & Radiance’s Seattle Wedding

Kraig Klinkhammer and Radiance Bellavita have two of the coolest names EVER. Not to mention they have a lovely relationship, including Kraig’s two girls. The ceremony itself was low-key–family and closest friends only–gathering at the Inn at the Market, a small boutique hotel at the Pike Place Market in Seattle. After that, the reception was held at Seattle’s lovely El Gaucho in a private room.

The whole affair was very relaxed and intimate, and exactly what they’d wanted. I’m privileged to know Radiance from the Seattle culinary world, where she’s hired me several time to do food shoots, through which we’ve actually become friends. So, it was such an honor to be included in their Big Day. There was a lot of love, tears, and joy, and I was happy to be in the midst of it all.

Here are some of my favorite pictorial highlights from throughout the day!

Kiah & Ramon’s Utah Wedding

Kiah and Ramon got married in December at the Logan Temple in snowy Logan, Utah. I had the privilege to photograph their amazing day, which was comprised of family and friends flying in from every which direction. Despite the cold and snow, it’s a sunny, gorgeous day.

Some of you might have seen the sneak peek I posted, but here are more of the highlights!

Sarah and Chris Are Engaged!

I am very excited to be shooting the upcoming wedding of fellow wedding photographer, Sarah Mitzel and her fiance, Chris. The wedding will be in Lake Chelan in May. How perfect!

Sarah and I actually shot a wedding together last year and I met Chris at that time, who was doing video. What a perfect pair–talented, warm-hearted, and beautiful.

I really enjoyed my photo session with them, where we walked all over downtown Seattle and the Pike Place Market. Here are some of the highlights from that afternoon.

April & Becky (or: Best Wedding EVER)

Last month, April and Becky tied the knot at a friend’s property on Vashon Island (a short ferry ride from Seattle). It was a truly fabulous wedding from start to finish. First of all, Becky is a fairly new friend of mine, and I absolutely love her to pieces. So, seeing our mutual friends, and watching her marry the girl of her dreams, made the day very special. I also loved their 1920s and 1930s theme. So many guests dressed up in costume; it was fabulous! Becky’s brother’s band, the Tin Pan Band (check them out!) flew in from New York to play for the occasion. Every single song was amazing. In addition to that, a swing-dance group came in and gave everyone swing-dance lessons. And since Becky’s family is Jewish, at the end of the night, they threw in some Jewish tradition by playing “Hava Nagila” and doing the Hora (carrying the couple around on chairs). Such good times!

The overall vibe of the day was purely celebratory. There was so much love and joy and excitement, it was palpable. Congratulations to a very lucky couple. I’m so very happy you have found each other, April and Becky!

Here are some photographic highlights from the big day.

Julia & Damon’s Museum Wedding!

Julia and Damon met several years ago and have an adorable son, Cedar, together. (You might remember their engagement shoot from a couple of months ago.) They finally decided to take the plunge and got married in Seattle’s historic Frye Museum. It was, in fact, the very first wedding ever conducted at the museum! The wedding was absolutely lovely, and the gallery was perfect for a small, private wedding ceremony.

Julia is part of the Troupe Hipnotica tribal bellydance group, so her troupe danced at her reception to much applause, even from the little ones! It was a such a lovely wedding and I’m honored to have been a part of it all.

Here are some of my favorite highlights from the event! Enjoy.

Hope & Jim’s Church Wedding

A few weeks ago, Hope and Jim got married at their church — New Life Christian Center in Renton. What a great couple! I would describe Hope and Jim together as playful, loving, and dedicated. You can tell that they really love each other, and at the same time, they are best friends. What a great combination!

The reception was also in the same location. As always, I’m posting a few of my personal favorite highlights from the day!

Enjoy!

Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. Harrigill! :)
