Wow, so Saturday’s wedding up in beautiful Snohomish was pretty much my idea of photographic heaven. I’ve been itching to get these images up on the blog to show you all! I don’t even know where to start – there was just so much good stuff about every part of the day … The venue, Jardin del Sol, is gorgeous and I love the set-up. There’s a very natural flow through the grounds for the different parts of the day, and the ceremony lawn is killer. The owner, Melanie, is a dream to work with – although she doesn’t officially coordinate the events, she was really helpful throughout, helping the guys with their boutonnieres, getting events moving and being generally awesome to have around.
Teryl and Hunter were … amazing. Look how gorgeous they are! They were so much fun to work with – their bridal party, too – and they were both on emotional rollercoasters the whole day: huge grins and many giggles during the getting ready and portraits, then tears during the ceremony, toasts and first dances. Love it. Some other highlights for me were going to King Charley’s burger shack for a few fun bridal party photos … the perfectly delightful bridal suite (white walls and mirrors and lots of natural light, hurray!) … the adorable flower girls and ring bearer (check out the girls up to no good during the ceremony) … fab party music from Sounds Unlimited … the amazing non-matching bouquets and bouts (I really loved this idea) … and the most emotional toasts I’ve heard in a long time. Thank you all for a fantastic day and I hope you enjoy the teasers below and the highlights slideshow (click here).
Kate – The photos are magnificent! You did a stunning job of capturing the joy and beauty of the day.
Thank you Kelly! I had an easy job with this wedding 🙂
Kate – These are fantastic and I can not wait to see the rest! Truly magnificent!
stunning!!! i want to shoot there!
Kate, you made me laugh and cry and remember every special moment of such a beautiful day. You have a gift that goes beyond photography. You capture the heart and that is truly special. Thank you so very much for highlighting the love surrounding our Teryl and Hunter.
Aw, thank you all for the lovely comments – they made my day 🙂
Kate, these are beautiful 🙂 i love the King Charley’s shots! That place is right by my work! what a fun time.
Kate!!! These photos are FABULOUS! I cried on our honeymoon when I saw the teasers but the slideshow wouldn’t work on the cheap computer I was on, so when I got home from the honeymoon I watched the slideshow and cried (again). You were an absolute joy to work with and hang out with on our wedding day and made everyone feel at ease. I knew the photos would be great but you blew me away. Not just with the bridal party shots but also the way you captured our guests enjoying themselves, which is something the B&G are sometimes too busy to see. Thank you, thank you! Teryl and Hunter
