Seattle Weddings


One thing I love the most about weddings, and especially about the weddings that I’ve had to change and adjust this last year during Covid, is how many couples have been able to incorporate so many special things that they might not have otherwise incorporated in a more traditional wedding day.

Amy + Noelia for example. Married in the front yard of their home that they lovingly renovated over the last year. (also shout out to anyone who took on the daunting task of renovations during the pandemi-lovato) I swear to god it was like walking into a living Pinterest board. Having just renovated my bathroom and done some other house projects since we bought our home in 2019, we bonded over plumbing finishes and tile combos. #vibe

On our initial wedding consult, I remember getting to talk to Amy and a lot of it seemed both exciting and exhausting for them. Renovating their home in Seattle, trying to plan a wedding during all the uncertainty of Covid, and overall just living on a prayer and hoping for the best without really being able to plan for anything concrete. All they knew was that they wanted to celebrate at their home, and the place that they love, with the people they loved.

Sign. My. Happy. Ass. UPPPP.

Amy wore a stunning two piece wedding said that she sorcerer self, and Noelia looked absolutely stunning and dapper as hell in her white suit and gray blazer (not to mention the blush pink Cole Haan zerograand oxfords that I may or may not have immediately added to my Amazon cart before I even left their wedding day)

We frolicked down the street of their neighborhood, danced in their driveway, and had their first look in front of their fireplace in their living room. They had their sweet ceremony on their front porch, and it was officiated by one of their dear friends. We loosely circled up for a round of toasts from their family and friends, had a gorgeous babies breath flower shower first kiss, and sent everybody off to have tacos and quesadillas from the delicious Mexican Food truck they hired for the reception.

If you’re planning a Seattle elopement, or a Washington wedding, or destination wedding in any place that tickles your fancy, just remember that you can do your day however you want. Catered dinner or food truck, grand venue or quiet backyard, $10,000 gown or $100 thrift, or anything in between. It’s the people that count, and the moments that matter.

Cheers to A+N for making the absolute most out of a wild year, and still creating the most beautiful, personal day to celebrate their marriage.
