In mid August, I had the pleasure of photographing our friends Kim and Darren getting married at Woodland Park Rose Garden, followed by a fantastic reception at Lake Washington Rowing Club (which is actually on Lake Union, just to confuse us all!) It was a true family affair: although I wasn’t the official photographer this time, I was part of a big group of close friends all wearing our various vendor hats. Stacey Jehlik was on fine form as Wedding Coordinator (she even found a spectacular free firework display on Lake Union for us to watch!); assisting her was our friend Dave Kaludy; the gorgeous Jen Hurlbert designed and made all of the bridesmaid dresses; our friend Neal Van Hoeven flew up from Atlanta to officiate; and my husband Josh played DJ and totally rocked the house … it was such a fun night!
It was pretty tough choosing which images to upload – but I hope you enjoy the selection. The black & white photo of Kim & Darren on the balcony was from my favorite moment of the evening: when Kim showed her new husband the boudoir photos we took a few weeks ago. It was so exciting getting to see the guy’s reaction – I almost cried! I also had to include a photo of their awesome favors (such a neat idea) … and the photo of Kim’s makeup artist looking surprised to be caught with her lipstick out must be my favorite candid I’ve taken so far.
