Over a year ago, fabulous wedding planner Michelle Engvall introduced Diane to us and we hit it off right away! Picture the Long Island girl and the Hawaii girl having a blast talking about everything under the sun! Diane even helped us at the Seattle Wedding Show earlier this year…she’s such a great lady that I actually begged her to be our Studio Manager at one point, but alas, she wanted to keep her ‘real’ job. LOL!! Anyway, Chris and I have been really excited to meet Fred and do their Same Day Edit, especially when we found out their two dogs would be involved! How cute!
So today started off at the fabulous Fairmont Olympic Hotel in Seattle where Diane and Fred both got dressed and then saw each other for the first time. We were working alongside Joe & Jill Photography which is always a treat since they like to bounce creative ideas around with us. Things moved over to Herban Feast in SoDo Park for the ceremony and reception where Steven Moore Designs totally outdid himself on the decor and made such a large, open space feel warm and cozy. The ceremony was officiated by Annemarie Juhilan who we’ve known for many years now…it’s always so great to see her because she has to be one of THE most positive people you’ve ever met!
The ceremony was fairly intimate with about 100 people total. The reception was a laid back yet elegant lounge atmosphere but later on DJ Darrel Christel rocked the place with such a cool mix of music that I need to make sure to get the play list! It was a GREAT celebration! The Same Day Edit was a smash hit and had the crowd dancing and cheering. It was so much fun to watch people’s reactions! Diane and Fred were beyond happy with the video….Fred yelled out “You all need to get a copy of that!!!” Too cute!
Congrats Diane and Fred…you are such a fun couple and we were so happy to share your wedding day with you today!
