This was a FUN wedding ... and a wedding to remember!  Darcie and Neal married at the Sunset Club.  Talk about having a unique celebration that reflects your personality.  This is a shining example of that.

Darcie was inspired and designed a collection of balloons with streamers made from various types of ribbons, lace and material.  So playful.

They were used to decorate the reception hall.

Darcie is studying premed and is also an artist.  She also has a streak of originality to her.  Check out her website.

Darcie's gown is an Elizabeth Dye creation.  It suited her perfectly!

An heirloom locket from Darcie's grandmother was attached to the waist of her dress, a very special "something old."









The dress was matched with these very comfortable yet highly stylish shoes.

Then it was time for the ceremony to begin. The grandparents, parents and wedding party gathered in the upper foyer.  We made our entrance down the stairs to the ceremony hall.

After the welcome, words of appreciation were expressed to Neal and Darcie's parents.

The bride and groom invited two of their best friends to offer perspective and words of wisdom during their ceremony.  The first was Patrina, who selected a reading by Thomas Kempis entitled "On Love," followed by more personal words.

A bit later, Thom, presented passages from Sandol Stoddard Warburg's very humorous "I Like You."  He too is an actor -- he did a great job.

Personal vows were then changed.

Darcie expressed she would always be on Neal's team and how through finding common ground regarding their differences they have strengthened their love.

Neal's words ending with "Todo para ti, Amore!" brought a tear to Darcie's eyes.

When it was time to exchange the rings,  Lenora did a great job of bringing B-Bear forward.  I loved how the rings were attached with velcro  -- so easy to remove.





With this ring, I join my life to yours.

Nice wedding at a place I haven't seen before! Amazing that there are still wedding venues in Seattle that I haven't shot at yet.

I agree, Cory! I think I know the venues ... and then discover a great place. It was elegant to say the least.
