The Olympic Sculpture Park is an awesome place for a wedding! It has a 360 degree view of Elliot Bay, the Olympic Mountains, the Space Needle and the downtown skyline plus plenty of open sunshine. Sara and Ian were the first couple of the year to add a second photographer to their package. Toni, my second photographer, has a wonderful eye for capturing moments so Sara and Ian decided to have her join me for the ceremony and reception after all of the posed pictures had taken place. It was fantastic having her there during the ceremony because the two large walls on each wouldn’t have allowed me to capture the bride’s eyes during the ceremony – so while I captured the wedding from the back, Tony carefully hid behind one of the walls and unobtrusively captured the ceremony from the side.
Sara walked down a long path with her father to greet Ian. The ceremony was sweet and ended with a beautiful announcement and kiss. Then it was off to the covered terrace for cocktails while Sara and Ian had a moment together on the Mezzanine to sign their marriage license before joining their guests for dinner. The pavilion walls are all glass so guests were able to to witness the sun setting as if they were outside. The Portage Bay Big Band created a delightful environment with their music. Sara and Ian were amazing dancers, and all their guests were too! It was a fun, perfect evening for Sara and Ian. Congratulations you two! Thanks for the joy of capturing your wedding.
