Real Weddings: Shirley + Derek

Thought I'd emerge from the studio for a few minutes to share photos from a March wedding (I know! I'm a little behind!) that I did. Jen and Jody did a fabulous job on the photography, and I love the clean, crisp look of the white and green--it's so fresh!

Love these shots at Seattle's Gas Works Park. It's such a dramatic backdrop and Seattle institution!

You know I always love the dress shot! Doesn't the silk look so perfectly crinkly and soft?

The beautiful Lake Union Cafe, all dressed up for the party. Those chairs? The cutest leopard print velvet on the seats. I'm always amazed at how it seems to go with whatever wedding decor we're doing there!

No grooms allowed int the bride's dressing room!

We did several different centerpieces; one version was heavy glass dishes of black river rock, green floating orchids with ivory candles, and aqua ribbon.

A sweet little cake with white roses and green cymbidiums. Cake by Sharon's Cakes and Catering (she's a sweetheart to work with!)

Can't wait to share a few from this weekend soon! Peacock feathers, exotic varieties of orchids, gorgeous silver silk linens, blue crystals, and a bride that has become a good friend. Coming soon!

Oooooh...and the cake looks like my wedding cake... a foudant with little pearl frosting... I had gardenias on the top only with two small white doves... thanks for the memory!
