Bonney and David are a fun couple from Tacoma. I was excited to use their wedding as an excuse to take a vacation to Seattle! I had fun exploring Mount Rainier and downtown, and I shot their wedding in Tacoma. Fun fact, it’s where 10 Things I Hate About You was filmed!
The morning started off really relaxed as she got ready in one of the rooms of the church, which was historic and absolutely stunning. I love this candid I captured of her putting on her jewelry before the dress, which was her mother’s wedding dress.
Once she had her dress on, it was time to do the first look! They decided to do it in between the columns of the church, which created such a timeless look. I love the layers of her dress and how cute they look together.
This was one of my favorite parts. The planner helped them go up the steps of the church to the balcony so I could snap a few shots. It reminds me of Romeo and Juliet, so elegant and timeless.
This is when the day started speeding up. We had to shoot the wedding party photos, the details, and then the ceremony! I loved the pop of color in her flowers and how adorable the flower girls looked.
The ceremony went seamlessly and then it was time to head to their friend’s farm for the stunning reception. They made their getaway in a vintage red car, which was super cute and added to the elegant theme of the wedding.
Growing up as a farm girl, I love when I get to shoot farm or outdoor weddings. This one was no exception, and I loved the rustic feel with flowers picked from the garden and wooden logs placed as decor.
My favorite part of the night is by far when we got to go into a field around sunset and do this balloon portrait shoot! Their fun loving personality really shone through during this part, and we had a blast taking photos with their dogs.
Her dogs! Too cute, right?
I pulled Bonney aside to snap a few solo shots of her, because her dress was too stunning not to. I especially loved the added touch of flowers in her hair. The lighting was absolutely perfect.
Fairy lights strung around added to the mood of the reception as the sun set. We did one last shoot of the two of them before I left them to enjoy dancing and drinks. They started a bonfire for everyone to circle around, and it made for the best silhouette shots. Overall it was a wonderful wedding in Seattle and I had a blast shooting it. I can’t wait until I get to go back and shoot another!
