How do you have a destination wedding in the Seattle area without going too far? You go to the San Juan Islands, like Billie Sue & Bobby did! This adorable couple was referred to us by the amazingly talented Jesse and Travis from True Colors Events. They are VERY busy Microsoft people so we didn’t have a chance to meet with them before the wedding. And to make matters more complicated, we already had another wedding booked that day. But luckily we have a pool of incredible talent so we flew up Terry & Joe from New Orleans to shoot while Chris did the Same Day Edit.
The week of Billie Sue & Bobby’s wedding was gorgeous with clear blue skies and temperatures in the low 80′s. Perfect summer weather. So you can only imagine the disappointment when there was rain on Saturday morning since this was an outdoor wedding. But Jesse and Travis along with the staff from Roche Harbor turned what could have been a disaster into a beautiful, intimate tented outdoor wedding. As you’ll see from their Same Day Edit, the rain actually became a character in the story of their wedding day.
I love how the darker light gives the video a bit more of a vintage feel and how the colors in the garden and flowers from Susie Wampler just pop. I can’t wait to see what the talented Joey Hong got for photographs! Of course later in the evening Sean Wheatley from Seattle Parties made sure the celebration continued and there are some lovely speeches from friends and family that I can’t wait to incorporate into their final edit.
