Classic Weddings

Right off the bat I'm in love with this wedding when I see its rainbow of blush colored bridesmaid dresses. And then I see the pink and white flowers, the beyond beautiful dress, the gorgeous church, and yes, the Ben and Jerry's ice cream and I'm officially in full on wedding crush mode this afternoon. Captured to perfection by Riso Studio, this Seattle nuptial has single-handedly resurrected my love of all things traditional. See even more here.

From the Bride...For me, the vision for our wedding day came together as soon as I saw our reception venue. We wanted to have a classic wedding but with modern influences and the spectacular stained-glass ceiling in the Northern Lights Dome Room of the Arctic Club Hotel was the perfect compliment to our classic but modern wedding.  The colors incorporated into the ceiling of the dome became my palette and inspired details in the table decor, flowers, bridesmaids dresses, invitations and ceremony programs.

Some of my favorite memories of the wedding-experience are those leading up to the day.  Weddings are a reflection of love between the couple as well as the family and friends who surround them. The love and attention by our family and friends was overwhelmingly evident by the effort and hours my Mom and I spent making runners for our tables, the planning my sister put into organizing our engagement and bachelorette parties, the time my Fiancé and Dad took off work to attend vendor meetings, the bridesmaids assembly line putting together welcome boxes, the multiple car-trips to and from Spokane by my future in-laws, and the distance traveled by our wedding guests over a holiday weekend. They are all contributors to the success and beauty of our wedding day.
