The end of fall went off with a big bang – the good kind of big bang, that is! My last October weekend was spent photographing two amazing weddings, the first being Scott & Cindy’s Columbia City event. Cindy and Scott got married at the Columbia City Theater, a very cool, crazily dark, but totally awesome venue for a wedding. There were lanterns, leaves, amazing theater lighting, live music (check out the cool pianist in the black and white shot below) and some of the most emotional and funny moments I’ve ever witnessed in a ceremony. It was delightful. And, to cap it all off, Scott jumped and clicked his heels together during the recessional – perfect!
After the ceremony we grabbed a few group photos outside the theater, then made a speedy tour of Columbia City for some couples portraits. I love how the fall colors and gorgeous afternoon light played against Cindy’s amazing red hair. Photographic bliss!
The reception was held at the Mount Baker Community Club, another gorgeous spot. There was a delicious sit-down meal, followed by lots of great speeches (my favorite being Cindy’s sister Kim’s speech which centered around the Valentine’s card that Scott gave to Cindy when they were on the high school swim team many, many years ago), and then dancing a-plenty. Congratulations guys on finally making it happen and thanks for having me be part of your totally rocking day!
