A beautiful, intimate, rainy day wedding on the Seattle Waterfront.
Matt and Kim began their day with a Ray LaMontagne record spinning softly on the turntable, while they got ready together at their amazing house.
They read their handwritten vows while family and friends gathered around in a circle. I really liked one line that Matt quoted from a Mumford and Son’s song:
“…where you invest your love, you invest your life”
It was an honor to photograph the wedding of two kindhearted people who have dedicated themselves to helping the community.

Congratulations, Matt and Kim! Thank you for allowing us to a part of your wedding day. We’re so happy for both of you and look forward to seeing you again soon!
We become friends with so many people in life, ultimately searching for that special person. You know, the one who creates an awakening within our soul. As if we experience an awareness of who we are, and who we can become. We yearn to find a soul mate, that person who, when you look into their eyes, can make time stop and the world spin. And you don’t want it to end, so you do everything to keep it – you feed it with trust, commitment, and sacrifice. Both of you know this is bigger than you could have ever imagined, and you finally understand why you’ve been searching. So when you look at her, you can’t help but smile, and you can’t help but want to love her, and care for her and with everything in your power you want her to be happy.
Prior to the wedding, Kyle and Christine’s closest friends & family took a moment to tell them a few special words.
The wedding details brought a personal touch of Kyle and Christine to the venue & ceremony – you could feel their country spirit.
One of my favorite moments was when Kyle saw Christine for the first time – his face lit up and they were so happy together completely immersed in that moment.
S’mores bar and lots of cowboy / cowgirl boots at the wedding! It was so much fun!

One frame from Kyle and Christine’s amazing outdoor wedding at Evergreen Gardens. Can’t wait to post more photos from their country-style wedding.
It was an honor to photograph the wedding of two of the kindest, most committed, and genuinely awesome people! I remember leaving their engagement session thinking, “these guys have something special – commitment and patience.” It felt like their wedding was a celebration of these two pillars, and it was a time for friends and family to celebrate love… and a celebration it was! The energy was incredible, and they were surrounded by so much love.
“Whoever loves much, performs much, and can accomplish much, and what is done in love is done well.” –Vincent Van Gogh
The Arctic Club in Downtown Seattle is a beautiful wedding venue. It used to be a gathering place for the men who returned from the Yukon Gold rush after “striking it rich.” The main room contains a giant gold dome ceiling, which created a special ambiance for Sean and Jono’s wedding ceremony.
The dancing and celebrating Baraat started at opposite corners of the Arctic Club in downtown Seattle, and moved towards the front entrance. There was so much energy as the family & friends from each side danced to the loud beating Indian drum (called a Dhol). This first ceremony set a fun tone for the evening to follow.
Sean and Jono were surrounded by their closest friends and family as they signed their marriage certificate. During their engagement session, Jono told me “…we waited a long time for this” and I could hear those words during the signing. it made me appreciate and respect their resilience and dedication to each other.
