Jamin and Alicia - A Seattle City Wedding

Alicia and Jamin are a wonderful couple! Their wedding day was a blend of traditional (the ceremony took place at All Pilgrims Church), historic (the reception was at the Lake Union Cafe) and playful (photos at fun places and interesting footwear).


The ladies were sophisticated, each dressed in their preferred version of the "little black dress." So practical for later use. And they were prepared for inclement weather with their unique footwear.



T
he men, meanwhile, were enjoying themselves: hanging loose and having fun.









A
licia had a moment before the ceremony for this elegant photograph.

















Loved the whimsy of the "ring pillow" ... and the definite cute factor of the pumpkin bearer and flowergirl.






The nuptuals were exchanged at All Pilgrim's Church.









Then, on to the Lake Union Cafe for the reception. A good time was had by all!












And, as the evening drew to a close, Alicia and Jamin, a very happy married couple, made their get away!!!

Tyler and Brittany - Wedding Anniversary on Valentine's Day

Last year I had to honor to officiate for Brittany and Tyler. They selected the ultra-romantic Valentine's Day to share their wedding vows and celebrate their marriage.

Britt is an amazing organizer and planned every detail. Their colors were chocolate and pink. Of course, her wedding dress was pink, too. A very good color for her.

The ladies were beautiful and excited about the upcoming festivities.



The guys were polished and exuberant. Ready to stand by the "man of the day."






The ceremony and reception were held at the Sahalee Country Club. Being a night wedding, candles were used to bring out the softness and highlight the intimacy of the evening.





Monty, their West Highland Terrier, was a star. Looking quite the dashing dog, he was a show stealer.







The table settings were "sweet," creative and playful.

The centerpieces reflected Ty's love of golf and the location. As did the cake topper.



A very happy Valentine's Day. A day to remember for many years to come!

Thanks to Becker Photography for their images.

Weddings In Woodinville 2010

On Sunday, January 31st, we were privileged to participate in the Weddings in Woodinville tour. This was the first of what I'm sure will be an annual tradition.




Everyone had an amazing time: organizers, wedding professionals, brides, grooms,and their guests. For a very affordable entrance fee, people were shuttled from the Columbia Winery, to DeLille Cellars, JM Cellars, Novelty Hill - Januik Winery, Russell's Barn and Willows Lodge.

The event was well attended. Not only did they see each site at its best, there were over 18 wines and amazing food to taste. We were at Willows Lodge and were wowed by the Grand Marnier Prawns, the cheese fondue, the halibut cerviche ... delish!



Janel Schlitt of Occasions coordinated our site. She worked hand-in-hand with Jenn and Erin of Willows Lodge. John Garner and the team of Aria Style showed the Lodge to its best. It was gorgeous!

Other professionals at the Willows were La Vie Photography (thank you for these detail photos!), Pinkalicious Cupcakes, Starry Nights Catering, Good Times DJ, Pederson's Rentals, Merchants Paper and Design, and, of course, the ladies from Alexandria Nicole Winery.

Our hats are off to Weddings in Woodinville!
