Anyone who knows me really well would tell you I have a severe weakness for beautiful shoes. Shoes. Succulents. The sweet innocence of dimples and any man who knows how to rock a tux. Oh, and Seattle. So you can imagine how excited I am to share this next wedding with you all, photographed by the superb Stephanie Cristalli. So excited in fact, I don’t even know where to start!
Ok, Shoes – let’s start with the shoes and move up. Seems fitting doesn’t it? I’m very punny today. Can we please, please, please say a prayer of thanks for the bride’s gorgeous florally white satin heels and the lovely gems bedazzling her bridesmaid’s feet? They are both going on my top 10 list of gorgeous wedding wear. Also, check out the gorgeous bridal bouquet shot. These bouquets are exquisite and the succulents add such a calming, sweet touch.
And the handsome groom Jared, wow. You sure know how to make a girl swoon! Great job rocking that tuxedo. But a little piece of advice: you may want to save that tux for a rainy day, because I have a feeling you aren’t going to be getting your way often. Not when you get to wake up to those adorable dimples hugging Jamie’s beautiful smile each morning. So save the tux and pull it out when you really need a win.
Wow, shoes, succulents, dimples and a handsome man in a tux… my day is nearly complete. The only thing that could possibly make this next wedding even more romantic is to hear how the adorable Jamie + Jared met, from the couple themselves. Because, after all, there’s nothing I love more than a good old fashioned boy meets girl love story.
Our Story ~
We met while working together at the flavored syrup company, Da Vinci Gourmet – wow, almost 9 years ago! Still seems like yesterday. Jared’s parents owned the business at the time, so we had to keep it quiet – and we did pretty well for almost a full year! We have pretty much been inseparable ever since. While on vacation in Hawaii, Jared proposed. And it was the easiest question to answer.
Our Style ~
We were going for simple/elegant/fun. We asked our photographer Stephanie for photos that gave a Gossip Girl-ish sort of feel, minus the aspersion. Our wedding party had some quite unique characteristics. For the gentlemen, it was tuxes all the way. A bit of juxtaposition with the fancy outfit and the fellas hard core features. The ladies wore short and spunky cocktail dresses from BCBG, paired with sky high ‘Canonita’ Christian Louboutins… a gift from the mother of the groom. They were a head-turning bunch!
