This Seattle wedding is probably one of my favorite ballroom celebrations ever. I just adore the creamy palette, shimmery, metallic details and classic feel with a modern twist. Gone are the days of frumpy bridesmaids dresses at least that is the case with the spectacular all-white, glam-tastic, chic attire these lovely ladies donned for the big event. And these images by Andria Lindquist are just delicious! See them all in the full gallery!
Of course, you can't possibly leave without seeing this fantastic fete come to life in Alec Cattarin's lovely film...
From the Bride...Luckily I married John cause otherwise the wedding would have never gotten planned. I am a medical student at the UW and was in the midst of my third year spending 80 hours a week in the hospital which did not leave a lot of time to plan a wedding. John really stepped up to the plate. He researched everything and then together we made the final decisions. We hired our dream photographer out of a list of 40+ photographers in our area and Andria was amazing to work with, in addition the day was captured on video by the very talented Alec Cattarin.
It was important to me that our spaces be beautiful stand alone, not needing much added decor on the day. John stumbled upon the Women’s University Club and the second we stepped foot in the door we knew this was our venue, the staff was incredible to work with. The formality and the elegance reminded me of my childhood in Boston, and was exactly my style. We got married at the City Church in the University district which is a beautiful historical building. We had two receptions; a Korean buffet following the church for 250+ guests and then a private smaller sit down dinner at the Women’s University Club for 85. John is the eldest son of a Korean family, we surprised and honored them by wearing traditional Korean wedding attire to the Korean food reception.
I really wanted my bridesmaids and mom to feel elegant and pampered on the day which the team of three sisters, the owners of Sorella’s Salon and Spa completely accomplished. The whole day was absolutely the best day of my life, there is nothing I would have changed.
