Arctic Club Seattle Wedding: Jackie + Tim Preparations

Jul 26, 2010 | Weddings

It’s such a treat still being able to fly back “home” to Seattle for the odd wedding.  And this time – finally! – I lucked out with the weather.  Jackie and Tim’s wedding took place on a sparkling Saturday in mid July, at the art deco masterpiece that is Seattle’s Arctic Club Hotel.  Sure, it’s a beast to shoot in (hello mixed lighting and insane darkness!), but it’s a phenomenally cool space.  I was so happy that they’d booked some rooms in the actual hotel for their preparations:

Jackie’s shoes were amazing.  She had hand-glued each one of those diamante sparkles on herself … wow!  Her toss bouquet was also pretty cool, and again hand made by Jackie (this lady is seriously crafty!)  While the ladies began makeup I went over to the guys’ room to see what they were up to.  Tying ties and eating ginormous sarnies, apparently.  🙂

Jackie’s makeup took place in the killer bathroom in the bridal suite.  I want that floor, all over my home.  Even on the walls.

It was finally time for Jackie to get into her dress.  I love this photo of her sister’s girlfriend, Sarah, below … and the shots of Jackie ecstatic as she slips into her gown.  And that’s florist Anne from the awesome Floressence Design working on Jackie’s beautiful bouquet.

A couple more shots of the radiant Jackie and then it was off to set up the first look … which will be coming along soon!
