From the bride: "My (now) husband and I have always been into costuming and fun, so when it was time to plan our wedding the theme of 1920’s was an easy pick. It was a great way to incorporate the older generation of family members to get involved and the costumes, and ultimately ended up loosening up the whole party and uniting our many groups of friends and family. Having such a fun theme made decorating decisions and planning all much clearer. We did things simply, keeping the whole wedding under $6000. The venue was outside and while we were nervous about the weather we were blessed with a sunny late June afternoon for our nuptials. We asked guests to dress up but provided a prop table to add a little 20’s pizzazz to classic wedding outfits. My dress was a creamy lace, and while not 100% 20’s style, defiantly had a nod, united with a feather headband and era style makeup. Tables had glitz, glam, and feathers – sticking to our gold and black scheme. Lots of pieces were borrowed and put together by family, the day and months preceding were all a group effort. Our band played jazz & lindy hop music, we brought cigars and one guest even brought a tommy gun for a prop! The theme kept things classy while bringing in a fun element."

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.
