It was such an honor to photograph this wedding! They had a 2 day wedding and we were SO lucky with the weather on both days! Seattle really does have the bluest skies when the sun comes out!
On the first day Nicole and Derek had a small ceremony of family and close friends at Riverview Playfield. The park is nestled in a quiet neighborhood of West Seattle, with a nice field, walking trail and ball field. They had the ceremony in the field under a huge maple tree. It made for the perfect background for the alter space. The ball field located at this park has special meaning to both the bride and groom, as it is where they met! We made sure to go and get some photos of them at the ball field after the ceremony.
The reception on day one was located on the waterfront at Lincoln Park. If you've never been to Lincoln Park you should definitely go check it out! It overlooks the sound with all the ferries and was a gorgeous backdrop to have!
The wedding on both days had a Hawaiian theme which paid tribute to the groom's Hawaiian heritage. The groomsmen and groom wore Hawaiian shirts and Nicole had a stunning, custom handmade lace dress made by Colleen's Creative Sewing located in Seattle. Her bridesmaids wore gorgeous dresses that they found in California. The whole day was gorgeous and filled with love!
The second day was the party for all their extended friends and family!!! It was so much fun!! They had the party at this super cute vintage place in Georgetown called The Stables. The venue had an awesome indoor and outdoor space and a stage for their super fun band Island Soul, which made The Stables the perfect spot for their reception! Everyone had such an amazing time celebrating the bride and groom!
Let's not forget the cake! They had an awesome cake topper and the cake by Stuffed Cakes was pretty darn good too!
It was such an honor to be a part of their big day and I had so much fun putting their wedding gallery together!!
