When people think about Seattle they usually think about Starbucks coffee, Pike Place Market, and the Space Needle. The Needle has to be the most iconic building in Seattle and it was also the place where Carrie and Nick tied the knot recently! We had SO much fun at this wedding! They are constantly laughing and so obviously in love with each other.
Carrie and Nick got ready and had their First Glance at the fantabulous Fairmont Olympic Hotel. I’m pretty sure the Fairmont was our home away from home last year…even the guys at the valet were getting to know us really well! Carrie looked SO regal and elegant in her sleek Winnie Couture gown (which she bought at La Belle Reve in Bellevue). And her gorgeous bridal bouquet and other floral designs that day were created by Tanya Stone of Elements in Bloom. Their photo session with Jason Koenig of JKoe Photography was such a blast and Jason got some amazing images while we got some great moments of laughter and movement at Kerry Park and the EMP at Seattle Center.
The wedding ceremony was held in the Skyline Level of the Space Needle which is 100 feet up and has a 360 degree view of Seattle. Annemarie Juhlian officiated the ceremony and as always made it a very personalized and joyous occasion. There were LOTS of tears and laughter! Afterwards we headed up to the observation deck of the Space Needle to take some more photos and video with a gorgeous sunset backdrop. You just can’t get any more “Seattle” than this!
I would say something like “and then the party started” but honestly…it was a party all day long! Carrie & Nick have some very entertaining friends and family and we loved capturing them having a great time on the dance floor. Kevin Olson of Disco Royale spun the tunes and kept the floor packed with moving bodies! I think the dancing might be my favorite part of their video, so make sure you watch it, OK???
A lot of couples we talk to budget a smaller amount for their wedding video, not completely knowing the costs involved, and sometimes even get a little sticker shock after talking with us. Carrie found us on Junebug Weddings (yay for Junebug!) and after meeting with us she did a little shopping around, but ultimately realized she was really drawn to our quality and style of work so they were able to rearrange a few things in their budget to hire us since this is the one thing that will truly last their lifetimes! She said it was worth every penny and over time the cost won’t matter, but the quality and memories will. I think she made the right choice!
