When Alli and Nick’s original wedding plans needed to be canceled because of COVID in 2020 they decided to host a small ceremony with just immediate family in their backyard. Fortunately, in 2021 after a long wait they were finally able to celebrate their marriage with friends and family at the beautiful JM Cellars in Woodinville, WA. Their celebration featured a delicious cake from Honey Crumb Bakery and some for the best florals of the year thanks to Lori of Flori Flowers. Friends and family were overjoyed to come together and enjoy this relaxed and happy celebration.
During one of the hottest weekends I was more than happy to film Alyssa and Gun’s wedding at the Four Seasons in downtown Seattle, WA. Not only was the air conditioning appreciated but I was truly touched by Alyssa and Gun’s love for each other.
I was also in awe of the work put into Alyssa’s dress. With lace, sparkles, and beadwork her dress was unique and stunning. The mothers of the bride and groom also nailed their fashion choices wearing complimentary hanbok (Korean traditional dress).
After a heart felt ceremony and fun cocktail hour Alyssa and Gun wowed their guests with a surprise choreographed first dance. We were lucky that the temperature dropped enough allowing me to capture a lovely rooftop sunset photo session I ended the night watching the bride and groom living it up on the dance floor.

Sitting in my car on a drizzly June morning, waiting and pleading with the sun to come out I wondered what my first social distancing wedding would feel like. A few minutes later the sun broke and a while after that I saw a well dressed man with a huge smile on his face strolling down the hill. From that moment on I forgot about worries and remembered why I do this, love. On that beach, there wasn’t a covid backup plan of a wedding, there was the real thing to its fullest extent. I couldn’t have been more honored to be a little part of James and Ron’s big day and I am looking forward to the rest of this season whatever it may be with confidence, optimism, and a lot of love. I also would like to do a shout out to David Cooper from Forever, Together – Western Washington Wedding Officiants for performing the lovely ceremony.
I love filming at the Hyatt Regency Lake Washington. They have amazing getting ready rooms, the ceremony and backup ceremony spots have tons of light, and the reception space is killer for 200+ people weddings. Did I even mention the view looking north on lake Washington with the Seattle skyline just peaking through? This venue really has it all.

Do you want to have a wedding that is away from all of the traffic, buildings, and noise of the big city but you also don’t want to make all your guests drive for multiple hours to get there? Well the Robinswood House-City of Bellevue is the venue for you. This idylic venue is right next to downtown Bellevue but you would never know it. The Robinswood House is hidden away in a small park and surrounded by massive hedges. I love the gardens around this property and the tree where you setup the ceremony is perfect. If you every thought about getting married under a beautiful tree look no further 🙂 There is plenty of space for getting ready here and ample photo/video spots. It is an intimate space but that didn’t stop Leslie and James from packing in a ton of people and a the full Michael Benson Band to rock the night away.
