Classic, Elegant & Simple | An Autumn, Seattle Wedding Celebration | Anne + Brian
My first time meeting Brian, the groom, was minutes before he saw his stunning bride, Anne. He was calm, collective & cool; anticipating their first glance in front of the Alexis Hotel downtown Seattle. I set-up the first glance alongside the hotel making sure it was clear of people. I absolutely LOVE this moment. It’s a time when brides & grooms can have an intimate moment seeing each other for the very first time on their wedding day. They can exchange sweet, loving words and even have time to shed a few tears of joy during this once in a lifetime moment. And, during this, there aren’t 200 set of eyes of them, just me from afar with a long lens capturing every second. Anne and Brian’s expressions were transparent of the love they have for each other, not just during their first glance, but also throughout the entire day. The rest of day unfolded beautifully, full of smiles & sunshine. It was brisk fall day, October 10, 2009. The autumn colors were beaming of reds, oranges and yellows which perfectly tied into the wedding day color scheme. We took the ‘formal’ shots of the wedding party near the Seattle iconic Kerry Park and met the family at the most beautiful Catholic Church called Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church in the University District followed by their lovely ceremony. The reception was held at The Canal in Ballard! So much fun. A special thanks to Melissa Parker with Amazing Events and my amazing photography assistant, Amber Brickman. Congrats Anne and Brian!! I had such awonderful time capturing your wedding.
