Elegant Seattle Wedding full of Classic City Details

At the hands of Sinclair & Moore, this black tie affair was artfully infused with a fresh burst of color. It’s a gorgeous rendition of Seattle city nuptials but with a twist on classic. The vibrant florals, the cityscape, the feasting in front of a weathered brick wall all come together through the lens of O’Malley Photographers. Have a look at one wildly good looking gallery right here.


From O’Malley PhotographersWe have a gorgeous Pacific Northwest wedding planned and designed by the talented Sinclair & Moore team here to share with you! Todd and Kristi’s wedding was full of classic and elegant touches, exactly what they hoped their wedding would be. They opted for a classic and elegant wedding in downtown Seattle, but wanted their photos to also incorporate the gorgeous water and mountain views, something that is unique to Seattle. The slate grey, navy, smoky blue, coral and peach color palette was perfectly achieved with garden and spray roses, dahlias, clematis, sweet peas, raspberries and other unique natural elements. They chose Court in the Square to say their “I Do’s” at and new venue, AXIS, to host their reception. Both venues boast quintessential Seattle vibes with lots of brick, exposed wood and warm character. The bride and groom got ready at nearby Alexis Hotel, within walking distance to the historic Pioneer Square district where the ceremony and reception were held. They incorporated other special touches into their big day such as a touching tribute to their grandparents during the ceremony and a late night snack of wood-fired pizza (the bride’s favorite treat) to keep their guests fueled for dancing late into the evening. It was a beautiful and memorable day!

Warm Winter Wedding in Seattle

Seattle has always held a special place in my heart and this quirky, cool, winter wedding was the breath of fresh Pacific Northwest air I’ve been craving. Kirk Mastin perfectly captured this couple’s carefree style and laid-back city soirée. These two are clearly head over heals for each other and their joy is pretty darn contagious. You can join in the fun right here in the gallery.

Urban Space

From the Bride… After 3 years, 2 states, 4 moves and a puppy, I couldn’t wait to get married to Chris! On Thursday evening January 3rd, 2013 he asked me to marry him – while I was queuing up Grey’s Anatomy on Netflix. I said yes, in my pajamas. So much love.

Over the next year we moved 3 more times, added a new state to our address, found new jobs and planned a wedding we think reflects us.

Seattle seemed the perfect choice for a location; it’s where we met and most of our family/friends are there. We had no idea where to go from there. Have you ever googled “wedding venue”? Sensory overload. Chris found Skillet Street Food, burgers and fries, perfect! We drove up to Seattle one weekend and ate lunch at their restaurant – yummy. From there we found Melrose Market Studios from the preferred vendor list on Skillet’s website. Here was THE venue, we didn’t need to look at a another one. Both of us loved the exposed brick, concrete floor and how we could have both ceremony and reception in one place.

“OK” I’m thinking “we got this.” 8 months ’til the big day and we have the basics covered. Chris’s brother Nick would be the Best Man and my brother Jimmy would be the Man of honor. Perfect. Except people kept asking about colors and my dress and concept. What? Uh… Earth tones?

I have never planned a wedding, not even as a little girl, in my imagination. Nope.

I decided on pinecones for a theme. They are super cute, earth toned, and in the Pacific Northwest you can find all different shapes and sizes. My mom has boxes of old canning jars that were my grandmothers. Candles in mason jars and gold glittered pine cones, white table cloths with brown butcher paper runners, yes! Kat, my sister in sarcasm and an amazing chef offer to make our cake – chocolate with mocha frosting, drool!

I found my dress after a full day in bridal boutiques and vintage store, when I was about to give up someone suggested The English Department. There I found Elizabeth Dye and her perfect mix of classic lines built for real people! And it wasn’t white!

We found our photographer kind of haphazardly, but like everything else, he turned out to be perfect. My only request was to have at least one photo at Pike Place Market. Growing up in Seattle it holds so many memories and it’s just a really fun place. Kirk took this request to the next level. First look was on the lower landing, we went to Socio’s where we used to do all our produce shopping, and of course in front of the sign. He also suggested a big mural on Capital Hill, where 3 years earlier Chris had taken my photo when we were first dating. Like I said, perfect.

Fast forward to 6 weeks before the wedding. Things we don’t have: rings, suits for Chris and his brother (my brother wore a suit he already owned), officiate, flowers, music, hotel room, dog sitter, marriage license. Yikes! What we did have was amazing family and friends.

On January 5, 2014, a freakishly sunny dry day, surrounded by love so strong you could feel it, we were married.

Quite honestly this wedding planned itself. Everything just fell together, at the last possible moment. It was warm, inviting, filled with laughter, and a little quirky – just like us.

Seattle Engagement Session With a Pup

This might be the tiniest bit biased thanks to Radcliffe (the couple’s adorable pup) but this is hands-down one of the sweetest engagements I’ve ever had my hands on. Photographed by the crazy talented Lora Grady, it’s a sunset session on Seattle’s gorgeous coast, and just what we need to kick a Friday off right. Click here for lots more.

From Lora GradyBrett and Chandra are a vivacious couple! Full of laughs and energy and they are just so sweet. It was so fun photographing them in some of their favorite places. They are moving to Oregon soon, so it was was the perfect way to commemorate their love and life in Seattle. They were such a joy to be around, and their little dog (Radcliffe: Rad for short) is so adorable. And he LOVED me. (Okay… that last part was kind of a lie.) It really was the perfect night!! I am so excited for their 2015 Spring wedding!

As a Seattle Engagement photographer, I never run out of opportunities to photograph in beautiful places. The city skyline was the perfect addition to this Seattle couple’s engagement session. We chose a beautiful evening, so that made for a sunny and crowded quick stop at Kerry Park for the iconic Seattle city skyline as the backdrop for this Seattle engagement session. We then went to a more natural location with trees and pretty light and finished up at the most beautiful Pacific Northwest beach.
