I absolutely love photographing redheads. Probably because I'm partial.... :) But mostly because that red hair just pops no matter how you photograph them! I was honored to document Ryan and Stacie's wedding day; I've known Ryan since I was in college (he lived with my brother for several years and also knew Jason from some engineering classes at UW), which is nuts to think has been 9 years. What?! It was so fun to meet Stacie, who compliments him so well and is so friendly and sweet.
We started off in Bothell, photographing at Bothell Landing despite the constant traffic over the bridge and across the Burke-Gilman Trail. We took advantage of the bikes for photos, especially since bicycling is a big interest for them (please note their cake topper). People for the most were super nice and patient, and there were even some that let us use them for props!
After the ceremony at the beautiful Chapel of the Resurrection at Cedar Park Church everyone headed down to the Mercer Island Beach Club for the reception and a bride & groom entrance of epic proportion: on a sea plane. So cool! It was a beautiful day for it. I was super impressed Stacie managed to get in and out of that plane with her dress,veil, and wedding shoes and do it gracefully!
The celebration continued with dinner, drinks, toasts (which had me both laughing hysterically *ahem, Best Man Nick* and tearing up *ahem, still Nick*), and a full dance floor that went well into the night....and continued with an after party I heard?! Pretty sweet. Not a bad way to send the newlyweds back home to Hawaii.
Ho'omaika'i 'ana (Congratulations) to the new Mr. and Mrs. Anderson, Go Dawgs, and mahalo!
