Colorful Tulip Field Engagement

If tulips make you happy like they make me happy (that’s a lot of happiness), then this sweet engagement session is totally going to make your Monday morning.  It’s the breathtaking tulip fields of Washington meets a crazy cute duo meets the fabulous images of Alexandra Knight Photography and, well… that makes for one pretty amazing way to start the work week.  See every beautiful moment in the full gallery.

From Alexandra Knight Photography… This colorful spring engagement session at the tulip fields in Washington’s Skagit Valley was perfect! Thunderstorms threatened the entire day, but when it came time to shoot, the sun came out and was a gorgeous contrast against the rain clouds that pushed off into the distance. What an awesome backdrop!

Missy and Chris are such a sweet pair and this session was a great chance for their quiet, but loving personalities to come out. Missy wore an adorable dress from Nordstrom and switched out her planned shoes for rain boots since we’d be traipsing around in the mud. We shot at the Roozengaarde Tulip Fields in Mount Vernon, WA on the last weekend of the annual Tulip Festival and were the last group to leave the venue that evening! We were treated to a beautiful, warm sunset and fields still in beautiful bloom.

This session was photographed entirely on film and Missy and Chris’ upcoming wedding in July is sure to be a stunner!

Whimsical

From Karen Obrist PhotographyI photographed this intimate vow renewal last September and it was beautifully styled and full of details! Tall candlesticks, old books and fresh flowers lined the tables.

Lindsay and Jeremiah have two adorable little ones and a DIY blog of their own in Portland. They were celebrating 10 years together by renewing their vows in the comfort of their home. Close friends and family joined to celebrate and support this incredible couple. It was truly magical to be part of!

From Catherine Abegg… Sean & Tracy met in Seattle about twelve years ago, and have since traveled the globe together before settling down in London…but it seemed natural to have their wedding ceremony in the city where they met surrounded by old friends, new friends, international friends, family from close & family from far.

They essentially celebrated every day that they were in town, including a gay bar hop through Capitol Hill, a glamorously casual rehearsal dinner at Escala in downtown Seattle, and then the main event at Seattle Art Museum’s Olympic Sculpture Park, that was absolutely posh & downright fabulous. This being the first year that Washingtonians could officially be married in our state, besides all of the glitz & glam of this wedding, there was so much love & just so much celebration that you could feel it pulsing all weekend long.

From The Bride…Our “perfect wedding” vision was to create a contemporary, elegant, colorful, and whimsical event that would focus on family, close friends, and our perspectives on what being in a relationship, and in love, encompasses. These were the guiding elements that played into every facet of our wedding.

We felt fortunate to be able to celebrate our day in my aunt and uncle’s magnificent garden. A wildfire had broken out the week before and was raging close by, and there had been evacuations in the area that week. We knew our wedding day would be threatened by smoky skies, but we hoped nothing worse. Miraculously, our day was completely clear; vivid sunshine and azure skies. We exchanged our vows surrounded by our closest family and friends in this beautiful family garden that bordered dramatic cliffs along the Big Wood River.

We chose a vibrant poppy orange as our main accent color for flowers, bridesmaid’s dresses, groomsmen’s ties, and table décor to match my Aunt Jane’s garden that had many amazing elements including a “wishing well” where guest could leave ” well wishes” for the two of us.

Other personal elements to our wedding décor included a “guest tree” where guests were asked to sign and add their ” leaf ” thumbprint to our family tree that Jay and I had painted together. Also, all of our tables were all named after some of the many things that we find important in our relationship, including “Love,” “Play,” “Trust,” “Smile”, and “Dance”.

There were far too many memorable moments just to pick one, but some of the highlights were my “reveal” to Jay before the ceremony that we had planned in advance so we could have a special moment together before our friends and family arrived. Jay waited in the garden by a stone bench overlooking the river, and I walked up behind him and had him turn around – it was an incredibly exciting and emotional moment.

We also had written our own vows and during the ceremony read letters that we had written to each other before making them. The ceremony, we wanted something lively and fun so Jay placed bubble guns below the guests’ seats and had them raise their guns in a “bubble gun salute,” shooting bubbles as we exited to a classical quartet playing the Beatles, “All you need is Love.”

Our reception, set in a beautiful, three-peak, sailcloth tent in the garden, was more fun than anything we could ever imagine. We entered the tent to the band, the Groove Merchants (from Utah), playing Macklemore and Ryan’s “Thrift shop,” which set the tone for the rest of the evening followed by incredible food and drink, emotional speeches, and an amazing band. We chose Dave Matthew’s “You and Me” as the song for our first dance, and they nailed it! They kept all of our friends and family on the dance floor all night long, and at one point played the longest (and fastest paced) Hora ever. When the band took their one, short break my talented brother and cousins performed “Ho, Hey” by the Lumineers, which was touching and kept the spirit of the event alive. The energy and love from that night will forever be etched into our hearts.
