Fairmont Olympic Hotel Seattle – Korean Wedding – Vera Wang Gown

This May, Lu & Joon were married at the Fairmont Hotel here in Seattle.  They travelled in from Chicago and managed to have their wedding land on a *perfect* Seattle spring day!  There are lots of things I love about this wedding but here are my absolute favorites.

• Lu’s style.  Seriously.  From the moment we met {in person instead of Skype} I knew that I wanted to raid Lu’s closet.  Her clothes are AMAZING.  It was no surprise that she had a gorgeous Vera Wang dress to go along with a swanky Fairmont wedding.  Look closely because Lu changes her sash to a pretty lavender color to switch up her look for the reception.

• The Korean ceremony!  One of the best parts of photographing weddings is getting to see so many different types of ceremonies.  I *love* Korean ceremonies because they are so full of complete color and joy!  Lu & Joon wore the traditional Korean wedding costumes and serve tea to family members amongst a table decked out in sweets and fruits.  My favorite moment of the ceremony is when the couple has dates thrown at them for fertility ;)

• The table decor.  Lu and Joon’s wedding had a very ornate feel to the reception décor and I think it’s because instead of giant florals, there were some incredible candelabras and other rented pieces that created some very interesting visuals {and lighting!}

• The lighting!  One of our biggest, biggest recommendations for weddings is no matter the venue, uplighting is always a plus!  It is completely transformative to an event space and even the fanciest venues {Helloooo, Fairmont!} can have their architecture and ambiance enhanced from it.

I hope you enjoy the images below {many thanks to my collaborator, Shane Macomber!} and feel free to comment or pin!  Questions?  Start a conversation with us on Facebook :)

Truly, Kimberly
