Simple & Chic Outdoor Engagement Session

This sweet couple held their engagement session with O’Malley Photographers just outside of Seattle, near the local island where the beautiful Bride-to-be grew up. Looking forward to their upcoming summer wedding, they wanted to first bask in that unbeatable engagement bliss in a place they hold dear. Take a peek at the full gallery here, and feel the love!


From O’Malley PhotographersWe’d love to share a recent engagement session with you! Lizzie & Andy’s upcoming wedding is being planned by Sinclair & Moore this summer on the Bride’s family’s estate and they are the sweetest couple. After spending time with them, you easily see why they fell in love and are perfect for each other.

Lizzie grew up on a nearby island outside Seattle and wanted their engagement session to reflect a strong sense of place including water, wide open space and a slightly dramatic back-drop. Their simple and chic sense of style, love for one another, and natural surroundings made this engagement one of our favorites.

Colorful Western Washington Barn Wedding

Whenever we are putting together weddings for SMP, we pay attention to the small things that really make a wedding lovely. Of course there are the flowers and the cakes, the invitations and the gowns. But there is also the look on the groom when he knows his bride is nearby. And then the moment he sees here. There is the joy that you can feel on every child’s face. And there are the photographs, like these from Alexandra Knight Photography, that tell the whole story to utter perfection. More here!

Barn

From Alexandra Knight PhotographyHere’s a colorful summer wedding to brighten up any cloudy day! Missy & Chris said “I do” at Countryside Meadows in Arlington, Washington – about an hour north of Seattle last summer under standard-issue overcast weather. But Missy’s DIY decor and details brightened everything up. She chose a playful blue, aqua and yellow color palette and created her centerpieces and table runners by hand! The bright colors, combined with the bold red barn, were a beautiful combination together.

The barn’s ceremony space is rustic and country, without being far from the big city, and is so romantic. The chandelier above the altar was swoon worthy! Missy & Chris’ families helped with coordination, planning, and set up. Music, dancing, decor, invites, and more were all DIY. The couple even invited a magician to entertain guests at the cocktail hour and reception as an ode to a family friend!

Missy & Chris are such a sweet couple and a perfect pair together. They wanted the day to be beautiful without too much fanfare, and came up with their own ideas for design and decor instead of relying on a designer or websites for their plans.

From the Bride… Coordinating and planning our wedding ourselves was a lot of work but also a lot of fun. For the day of, would really suggest a wedding coordinator to organize the day, keeps a lot of the stress off the bridal party to have to arrange and organize everything. Take several moments throughout the day to step back and enjoy it for yourselves because all the months of planning goes by really fast in one crazy day!

While I can be swayed by almost any color (be still my heart beautiful blush), this palette right here, these gorgeous ivories and peach, dusty blues and sage, are the colors I keep coming back to time and time again. Place these pretties in my latest favorite locale, throw in a Claire Pettibone dress to seal the deal and I’m ready to print Faith Teasley’s pics to frame all over my apartment. See it all right here!

Spring

From Faith Teasley PhotographySerene beauty and striking colors for days. The natural elements of Rattlesnake Lake, a hidden gem in the Pacific Northwest, created the perfect color scheme for this springtime wedding inspiration. Combined with film photography, a gorgeous gown by Claire Pettibone, and talented team of vendors, we were able to bring this vision to life. It’s true: there is beauty in simplicity.

Farm

From The Groom… We met in Hawaii in mid 2008. Neither one of us were Natives to the Island of Hawaii. We met at a Starbucks outside of Audrey’s workplace and hit it off pretty quickly. I had lived on the island for a couple of years longer than Audrey had so I offered to take her to some of my favorite places around the island. One of my favorite places was the Maunawili Falls hike in Kailua. At the end of the trail is a waterfall with lots of great places to jump into the water. We had a lot of fun on that hike and we kept going out to do fun things around the island whenever we could.

Audrey introduced me to a lot of great food I’d never tried before. She had lots of fun introducing we to lots of delicious food and I was happy because each new food I hadn’t tried was another excuse to see her again.

In 2009 my time in the Navy was over and I planned to go to college in California. Audrey took a huge leap of faith and agreed to join me in California. She gave up going to the beautiful beaches every day in Hawaii to be a poor college student with me in California. We moved into a small apartment in Hayward, CA many miles and a mountain range to the nearest beach. When we moved to California in February of 2009 it was still beautiful and sunny in Hawaii, but it was very cold in Hayward. It was a very harsh transition, but Audrey and I still look back on those days as some of our happiest days together.

Audrey ‘s family lived in Seattle, so when we moved to California it was nice to be closer to them. We took trips up to Seattle a couple of times a year to visit Audrey’s friends and family. During those trips to Seattle I fell began to share Audrey’s affection for the natural beauty of Seattle and love of her family. While the rain and clouds that are Seattle’s hallmark don’t often make one picture an ideal wedding location, the truth is the natural landscape of the Seattle Washington area is perfect for the rustic style wedding we had dreamed of. Also, the weather isn’t as dire as it’s often portrayed to be.

Red Cedar Farm was the perfect venue for our wedding, because it’s fits our two personalities very well. Red Cedar Farm on one hand is a beautifully landscaped and manicured estate. It has a large green lawn and lots of trees, accentuated by natural wood benches and gazebos. However all of this prim beauty hides an exciting secret once you enter the large converted barn.

On the inside of the barn, instead of farm animals you find bar games like shuffleboard and even antique (but still in great shape and playable) pinball machines. Having simple games available to play was especially important because not all of our guests spoke the same language. We thought having games would be a great way to bridge the language gap. Ultimately, this location fit our two juxtaposed personal styles better than anything either of us could have imagined. We also released butterflies at our wedding as a symbol of our love for each other hopefully having a positive effect on the rest of the world, and our hopes to make our love a positive force.

Audrey wanted her Washington State barn wedding to have a loose Marie Antoinette theme and I loved the idea of contrasting the rustic farm venue with a gilded, ballroom design scheme. To achieve this, we employed a mix of rented vintage pieces – old clocks, jewelry boxes, packets of antique love letters, a French barn ladder, and art déco pottery with lush, organic florals in luxe gold urns. Gold rimmed plates, chargers and Chiviari chairs added to the ballroom look while stunning La Tavola linens added a final touch of elegance.

The garden inspired florals included local garden roses and dahlias, fresh blueberry branches, clematis, Annabelle hydrangea and Kent Beauty oregano. A sprig of rosemary at each place setting added a fragrant touch.

Guests wandered around the farm visiting the various resident animals and then took their seats for the ceremony on rustic wooden benches as Audrey and David were married under a metal arch covered in peach, blush and green blooms.

HotelLake

From Alexandra Knight PhotographyKristin and Chris were married in a romantic and elegant lakeside wedding at one of the Seattle area’s great wedding venues, The Woodmark Hotel. With a ceremony and reception space just feet from the lake, the scene for the whole wedding day is open, relaxing, and romantic. The Woodmark Hotel treats newlywed couples to a private lake cruise on a gorgeous wooden boat, while guests enjoy cocktail hour on the lawn near the water.

The couple choose a perfect color palette featuring navy blue and white striped ribbons and table cloths, with hints of baby pink everywhere. Accents and details carried the naval theme throughout the day and every element of the entire day was thoughtfully prepared. I loved the contrast of the light bridesmaid bouquets against the contrast navy and white striped bows decorating the edges of the reception space. The suite Kristin got ready for her wedding in was adorned with navy blue details, which just added to the picturesqueness of the entire day.

Kristin and Chris personalized their ceremony with a knot-tying and personally written vows to each other. The celebration was filled with laughter and jokes and every guest in attendance shared in the joy that fills the relationship between these two.

With our gorgeous sunny weather that day, evening portraits on the dock as the sun set were a must. Photographing them together was a joy because they were so over-the-moon to be married that they would forget I was there, and be 100% focused on each other.

This wedding was a beautiful celebration between two families, that really took intense joy in being together and celebrating such an incredible day. The bonds between both sides of the families were easy to see and inspirational, as the support for this couple in their married life is immense, as it should be for everyone.

Photographing this wedding for Kristin and Chris was a joy. They were a couple that knew what they wanted and envisioned and stuck to their ideas to really make the day what they wanted it to be. I hope to work with them again for their next adventures in life!
