Seattle Wedding at the Edgewater Hotel – Green & Damask – Jennifer & Shan

Jen and Shan had about as perfect of a wedding day as you can get in Seattle; a warm but not too hot June day full of happiness, emotion, and celebration.  Jen is one of the most exuberant and warm people that you could ever meet.  She’s already had a career as a buyer for Nordstrom flying all over the world {it’s no wonder she had such an amazing Melissa Sweet wedding gown} but she tired of it and decided to go back to school for nursing.  Shan is sweet, thoughtful, and funny as hell.  He had Jen {and us} laughing all day.

If I had to say, the theme of the day was Shan picking up Jen at just about every moment.  First look?  A lift.  Pike Place Market?  A lift.  Pioneer square?  Two lifts!  The couple had a stunning Edgewater Hotel Wedding.  Jen’s mother, Heidi, killed it on the décor with impeccable style.  Black chiavari chairs created a super chic interior that went so well with the candles, green, and damask of the dinner tables.  She took it up another notch by getting linens from BBJ Linen who have an insane collection.

For as much fun as we had during the day – just check out the groomsmen photos…!  There were so many emotional and touching ones, too.  Rather than just show you the gorgeous portraits, enjoy a complete wedding recap of the day.  My personal favorite moment: Jen’s walk down the aisle with her father.  I’m warning you now, there’s a really good chance you’re going to tear up.  Other great moments included the massive cruise ship just outside Jen’s room as she got ready, Shan’s best man, Kellan, picking gum off of Shan’s shoe at pioneer square, the boys sneaking off to grab a shot, and of course, the late night cigar that Shan enjoyed and looked soooo cool smoking.  {I know we’re not supposed to think that anymore, but… he did.}

As always, no wedding day could happen without the entire creative team that comes together.  On this wedding we were so fortunate to work with the following creative professionals.
