What do you get when you mix a beautiful venue, a crafty and stylish bride and a talented photographer? This beautiful wedding at Broadway Hall in Bellingham, photographed by Courtney Price Photography. Meredith and Dan's wedding is simple with a personal touch, and we just adore the wildflowers and Meredith's birdcage veil.
We just love this colorful, joy-filled wedding from Katheryn Moran Photography. And could this bride look any happier? Kelly lights up every photo she's in, and Oscar's no slouch either! We love a groom that takes such an active role in the wedding!
Read on past the photos to see what Kelly has to say about her wedding day.
Katheryn says: Kelly Runerstrand and Oscar Alvidrez had been engaged for about a year prior to their wedding date. I did an engagement shoot with them in Portland with the same theme that turned out great. See it here.
I had known these two for quite some time as friends before I shot their wedding, so it was a real treat to be there and meet all their extended family and friends. This venue isn't used often in Bellingham, but it provided so many great backdrops for photos and had lots of awesome natural light. I loved this theme, although it was a funny choice because Oscar, the groom, is color blind. Nonetheless, he hand-stitched each of the groomsmen's shirts with collar and cuff lining to match the color they were in the wedding party. Most of the giant wedding party knew each other because they all went to school together.
While it can be wonderful to have big, ornate centerpieces, we think something small and simple can have just as big an impact.
We've gathered together some of our favorite uncomplicated centerpieces to inspire you.
On March 30 a group of Skagit Wedding Society members (and a few non members), collaborated to create a bright, beautiful and romantic wedding scene at Maple Hall in La Conner.
Darcy and Tyson took advantage of the Skagit Valley's yearly spring bloom of tulips to head out with David Clumpner of David Clumpner Photography to take these gorgeous couple's photos.
We just love the brilliant backdrop of tulips, and this sweet and silly couple's personalities are bright enough to shine before it.
When the leaves turn bright orange, red and yellow, there's a little part of us that wishes it could stay fall forever. Particularly, if we have a fall wedding in mind!
This simple DIY project can help you hold on to that colorful season in a unique and beautiful way and we're excited to share with you. It's just one more way you can tie the turning of the seasons into your wedding day.
We're so excited to share this sweet October 2012 wedding from Stephanie Stremler Photography with you. Even a little rain didn't dampen Todd and Jessie's bright fall day. The couple used the colors of the season to their advantage, even incorporating touches of Halloween in the decor.
We love that they took some time for just the two of them before their wedding, and read love letters to each other before seeing each other for the first time that day.
This adorable Seattle wedding, photographed by Barrie Anne Photography, is absolutely charming. From the bride's vintage-inspired style to the groom's irrepressible smile, everything about this couple makes us swoon. Especially the venue! Holy moly, that view is incredible!
Bold splashes of color (we love the subtle and classy tint her uber-cute dress has!) make this wedding bright and lively, and perfect to share on a gray October day.
There's nothing sweeter than the moment a groom sees his wife-to-be on their wedding day. It's even better if it happens pre-ceremony when the couple can sneak away and share that special moment by themselves.
Talk to your photographer and ask them for a "first look" photo like the one below. They can help you tweak your wedding day timeline to make room for an enchanting encounter. We promise you won't regret it!
