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!

From the beautiful Bride…Danny and I met in Thailand on New Years Eve last year. We hadn’t known each other long before deciding to get married, but almost instantly upon meeting him I knew I wanted to spend my life with him.

Wedding planning started off as things usually do: Ideas began small, and continued to get more elaborate as time went on. We thought about doing a courthouse wedding, then decided on a small gathering with immediate family, then agreed to do a larger party to celebrate. When we found out a good amount of Danny’s family and friends would be coming from all over the world, we knew we wanted to have a real wedding, but we also knew we wanted it to remain small and intimate. Danny’s best man flew in from India, and his groomsmen came from New Zealand (just a quick 19-hour flight). His sister and dad traveled from London, and his mom (mum!) and stepdad traveled from Croatia. We had around 20 out-of-town guests make it from six different countries.

Because Danny was immigrating from England, we didn’t have long to plan. We had about three months in total, two of which he was still living in the UK, so needless to say we had to cut some corners and make quick decisions. But that’s what downloadable menus on Etsy is for, and online bridal dress shopping, and friends that are willing to frantically finish folding paper airplanes three hours before the ceremony. We focused on the important stuff (like the perfect cake!), and knew whatever was done was done, and whatever we didn’t get to, it didn’t matter.

We chose The Court in the Square as our ceremony and reception venue for the cozy factor, and the fact that it feels like an outdoor venue when it’s really in the middle of February. It’s already such a beautiful space that it didn’t require much decorating.

We couldn’t resist adding in some sort of travel elements. Instead of table numbers, we did table cities that represented the places Danny and I have been together. We had our (very talented) friend sketch landmarks of each city for the tables, and had a big poster board seating chart with names next to each landmark. We folded paper airplanes for place cards and adorned them with washi tape. We wanted everyone to sit together in a sense, so we did one long table that wrapped around the venue. That table, and being able to look out on everyone who had come to celebrate with us, was one of our most favorite and cherished things. Our guest book was a vintage globe we had everyone sign that now doubles as one of our favorite decor items in our house.

This last year has been hard – long distance is hard, but that’s what made our wedding day so incredibly special. Danny was finally in America, and we were able to start our life together. The day was full of love, you could absolutely feel it.
