They're from Texas. I live in Seattle. Like a good portion of my clients I had never met Britteny or Michael prior to their wedding but due to the fact that we follow each other on Instagram I felt like we already knew a bit about one another. They had planned a Seattle destination wedding and were joined by about 70 of their closest family and friends, none of whom were from Seattle! All day I was surrounded by warm southern accents and a dose of that southern hospitality that I've heard so much about. Britteny and Michael are both warm, outgoing people which I can see reflected in their photos. They laugh freely and they have fun freely. Together they arranged to grant us access to the Seattle Aquarium for photos after their first look. Seeing as how their wedding was in late October, we had no idea whether or not we'd be taking any photos outside so the interior of the aquarium was a safe bet. Lucky for us, there was no rain and we were able to do photos both indoors and out. The city of Seattle made for a unique backdrop for a couple who resides in a state that is very different in appearance. I wanted to give a special thanks to the Seattle Aquarium for opening the doors before a private event for us!
Lit by warm candlelight Britteny and Michael were married at the beautiful Edgewater Hotel. Immediately after the ceremony we were ushered upstairs into the room where the Beatles famously stayed during their first US tour. We were all walking around and remarking, "The Beatles were in this exact room! They fished out of this window!" - pretty cool!
The remainder of the night was filled with good food, good drink, and good company as well as the sounds of the talented Seattle Live Band. Late in the evening we were treated to a special performance by Michael himself. He has a wonderful voice and did the other Michael (the Buble one) proud.
Congratulations y'all! (can I pull that off?) :)
