Mike and Elizabeth Wedding….
I decided to look up the definition of BEAUTIFUL (byoot’e fel)….having beauty; very pleasing to the eye and mind. That which has beauty or pleasure. Those who are beautiful.
Yes, that pretty much summed up the wedding of Mike and Elizabeth…..BEAUTIFUL. Everything about their day was spectacular. My team included the super talented April Greer and Breanna Meldrum. We photographed 11 hours of coverage, but there were so many details and such terrific venues that we never tired.
This raven haired bride was sizzling & sexy and her groom was handsome & gracious. Elizabeth had a classy and tasteful touch on everything throughout the day from her Luly Lang Couture shoes to the party favors. A New Chapter wedding planning helped orchestrate the event so that Elizabeth’s vision could become a reality and she could just enjoy being the bride. Mike delivered a touching speech in which he commended Elizabeth for planning the event of the year and promised Elizabeth’s parents he would take care of her forever. Awww………his parents raised a true gentleman!
Holy Names Academy is always such a treat to photograph inside and out. The decor is ornate and the warm light that comes through the windows is inviting. Mike’s Uncle flew into town to officiate the wedding. He even did some of the service in Spanish.
The flower-girl (Mike’s niece) was precious as she intently watched the bride and groom taking communion.
They were off to the Seattle Tennis Club for a fantastic reception. You can’t beat being on the water in Seattle on a day like this.
One of the guests offered $50 to these boys if they could keep their tongue’s on the ice sculpture for an hour…..I checked back in 20 minutes and they were still at it.
I saw the boys walking around with blue tongues later in the evening.
Mike and Elizabeth, enjoy your honeymoon. April, Breanna and I had a blast photographing every last detail of your day.
