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!
Kate! These are amazing, my mom texted me this morning before I even saw your email. 🙂 I think she had been checking your blog on the hour and needless to say you didn’t disappoint! It is so special to be able to re-live the day – with such powerful and artistic photos. Can’t wait to see the others. Thanks again for all your hardwork!
Jackie’s right Kate…..I have been checking the website quite a bit! These are terrific photos and you captured the special moments perfectly. Thank you!
Thank you ladies! So great working with you all. 🙂 And tons more good stuff coming your way soon!
Very fun too see the day through your lens, Kate. Can’t wait to see more!
Thank you Heather! More comin’ tomorrow 🙂
Gorgeous, as always!
