Earlier this summer, we had a Revel wedding in Washington State. Yesterday, I was so excited to get word from the fabulous Jaqui of Jaquilyn Shumate Photography that the photos of Sarah and Eric’s wedding at their family residence on Puget Sound are ready! Jaqui and her husband, Travis, were such fun to work with. What more could you want in a pair of wedding photographers than a beautiful husband-and-wife team who are madly in love? Priceless! Here’s a little sampling of the loveliness they captured that day.
In the morning, Sarah’s family hosted the ceremony and brunch reception in University Place, Washington. Check out the stunning view! Sarah’s mom, Linda, is an avid gardener and spent months making sure that the flowers in the yard were not only at their best, but were matched to the jewel-tone colour scheme of the wedding. Now that’s dedication! To complement her existing garden, bouquets and centrepieces were provided by Seattle’s Marigold and Mint, whose creations were incredible. I don’t have a close-up of Sarah’s bouquet, but zoom in! It’s fabulous!
After a delicious meal, a bouquet toss to the married gentlemen, and the welcome emergence of the sun, the happy couple and their guests headed in to Seattle to the tres chic Sole Repair Shop in Capitol Hill for cocktails, canapes, and dancing. The food and drinks were delicious and the venue looked great; beyond that, the staff were so friendly, fun, and helpful. I want to take another trip to Seattle just to see them again! At the cocktail reception, photographers Jaqui, Travis, and Jeramie brought the main attraction upstairs: a photobooth with hilarious props that kept the crowds entertained in between dances. I can’t wait to see those photos!
