Wedding Bells in Seattle!

Weddings weddings weddings! LOVE LOVE LOVE.

This weekend was a perfect example of a sweet opportunity as we made our way to the ever lovely city of Seattle to photograph a wedding.

The wedding was for Jaffrey and Dan, whom we actually didn't get to know until the day of the wedding. We are close friends with Jaffrey's sister Jodi, who attends Trinity Western University with us and who we originally met at Capernwray in Spain. Jaffrey saw some of our pictures through Jodi and asked us to photograph the wedding, to which we were thrilled to accept!

We traveled to Seattle on Saturday and made it just in time for the rehearsal dinner that afternoon. We were felt so special attending the dinner, seeing as we only knew Jodi's immediate family, but by the end we felt as if we had known these people forever. It was so helpful to hear the stories and emotions behind Dan and Jaffrey's relationship because we instantly saw the impact their love has on other people and the sincerity it holds.

They were so fun to take pictures of! So genuine and real.
As far as the wedding, well we won't go into huge detail about the venue, because that would take hours. But we will say that EVERYTHING about it was beautiful, and the wedding was so encouraging to witness. Dan and Jaffrey are definitely one of the most beautiful couples we have ever been blessed enough to encounter, because their love for each other is so clear through every action, and every glance and everything they share together.

Check out this Venue! It's an old Warehouse and sooo beautiful.

Dan and Jaffrey did a "first look" before the ceremony, so fun.

Yes. They are the cutest couple in the world.

They were just funnest and best looking bridal party imaginable.

Aren't they the most beautiful sisters ever? Yes.

Dan's Father was passing on his wisdom to the younger generations :)

Jaffrey's father owns a catering business and provided all the deliciousness!

The dance was SO beautiful, we were utterly enthralled.
