Jewel tones are my kryptonite.  Sure, I love a soft, muted color palette, but give me a shoot rich in dark, dramatic tones juxtaposed against a crazy cool industrial space and that, my friends, is my happy place. Now add in a fabulous team of vendors, drop-dead gorgeous florals + decor from Kaleb Norman James Design and a gallery of lovely captured by Ali Mae Photo and it’s happy, happy Monday.

From O’Malley PhotographersThis Bride and Groom chose a destination wedding in Seattle because of their childhood ties to the area. Guests flew in from from all over to witness their union and in true Seattle fashion, they sipped artisan drinks while taking in gorgeous mountain and city views as the bride and groom said their vows.

Noah and Allie have a unique yet classic taste. Just a sampling of what was incorporated: Hawaiian traditions to pay tribute to the groom’s childhood in Hawaii; Allie rocked a gorgeous gown that came up in the front to show off her chic Christian Louboutin burgundy heels; the flowers brought in an earthy, organic feel to the modern vibe of the new Hotel Ballard’s beautiful space while the guests enjoyed a delicious family style feast as the sun was setting.

Seattle Waterfront Engagement Session

I don’t even want to admit this, but I’ve never been to Seattle. I’ve always wanted to make the trek, and after pouring over all these super pretty images from O’Malley Photographers I’ve decided to add it to the tippy top of my travel list. This gorgeous couple took advantage of all that pretty city had to offer, and it gave them the most lovely background for their sweet engagement session. See more here.


From O’Malley PhotographersBeing a photographer in the Pacific Northwest means being prepared for anything…rain, snow, wind, sunshine…sometimes all in the course of the same hour! This sweet couple wanted to take their engagement photos so badly they were up for nearly any adventure with umbrellas and boots in tow. Any couple up for adventure and a little rain is truly one after my own heart; but it was raining so hard the day of their session that it looked like a lost cause. Just moments prior to calling it off the clouds parted and our sunshine filled prayers were answered. We all nearly ran from under our umbrellas to create some sun-filled magic on the gorgeous Seattle waterfront before the clouds rolled back in. This is just one of the reasons I love this beautifully unpredictable city!

Snowy Snoqualmie Engagement Session

I truly believe there is an absolute beauty in simplicity, and this engagement shoot by O’Malley Photographers seems to agree with me. Maybe it’s the calmness of the snow, or the insight of the bride-to-be’s photography experience as well, but add it all together with the O’Malley’s talented eye and we have a stunning, snowy scene. Sit back, relax and enjoy these beauties.

From O’Malley Photographers… We recently photographed this snowy engagement session. With the lack of rain in California, Melanie and Chris realized they needed to get away somewhere guaranteed to have the snow she dreamed of for her engagement session, so they met us up in Washington and we headed to the nearby mountains. Melanie’s vision for the session included snow, soft light, lots of wintery layers and of course, gorgeous photos since she’s a photographer herself. They’ll be tying the knot soon in San Francisco and we couldn’t be more excited for them!

From Perfectly Posh Events… Slava was raised in Moscow and Jessica was raised in the Seattle area. Their paths crossed as a result of their passion for ballroom dancing and now they are dancing professionally as award-winning dance partners.

Slava and Jessica met at a dance tryout in Los Angeles in April 2010. They decided to dance together shortly after and a few months later, Slava surprised Jessica with a bouquet of red roses as they were on their way to the dance studio. They decided to move to Seattle from California so Jessica could be near her family and proceeded on an incredible journey, opening a new dance studio while creating a life and home together.

For their wedding, Jessica & Slava wanted a memorable intimate affair with their closest family and friends. They both really love romantic classic European styles and selected Thornewood Castle as the backdrop for their personal fairy tale. Jessica loves feminine details and chose a color palette of light pink, blush, champagne and ivory.

Their intimate ceremony was held in the picturesque sunken garden surrounded by roses and hydrangea bushes. Jessica walked down a very long aisle on a carpet of rose petals before they said their “I Do’s” under a gorgeous floral arch with a stunning chandelier. One of my favorite personal touches in the ceremony space was the custom-made banners for each family crest that hung on the castle towers on either side of the ceremony space, not only did they fit the fairy tale theme perfectly but it also tied in their family heritages which are extremely important to Jessica and Slava.

Aria Style created the perfect romantic ambiance for the ceremony and reception with hundreds of roses and lush floral arrangements. I loved the design that we did with the tables, complete with blush pink linen layered with lace, vintage dishes, menus tied with lace and ribbon, tables named after ballroom dances, and drop-dead-gorgeous centerpieces! The reception was filled with lots of love and laughter, champagne in abundance, delicious food and of course plenty of dancing. To end the evening, Jessica and Slava departed in a vintage blue Lincoln Continental Convertible after being showered with rose petals by their family and friends. It was truly a modern day fairy tale!

From the beautiful Bride… On a sunny Sunday in June last year, Slava suggested that we go for a walk in the Bellevue Botanical Gardens – he looked very dashing all dressed up in a suit, so I put on my favorite pink sundress. We held hands as we walked through the garden and stopped to rest on a beautiful bench in the forest. The afternoon light was shining golden through the verdant green of the trees and there were butterflies occasionally flitting by, and the music of birds chirping happily. Then Slava got on his knee and proposed to me and I said yes! He presented me with the most beautiful, custom-designed Italian engagement ring, which he had secretly had made during our visits to Southern California for dancing. We bought pink champagne to celebrate at the outdoor patio of a cafe on Bellevue’s main street, and then we went to tell my parents, who welcomed Slava into the family. Shortly after, we also called Slava’s family in Bulgaria and Moscow to share the news!
