Heather & Ben | A Winter Wedding at The Manor House at Pleasant Beach Village | Bainbridge Island, WA

We always love traveling to Bainbridge Island for weddings, and Heather & Ben’s wedding at the Manor House at Pleasant Beach Village was no exception. Heather invested a lot of time and energy into personalizing their wedding and making it a fun event for their family and friends – she designed their invitations, hand wrote the dinner menu, setup a hot chocolate bar much to the delight of their youngest guests, and picked some of her & Ben’s favorite chocolate truffles to give out as party favors.

Jacky Grotle with NW Event Success handled all the details, Melanie Benson brought Heather’s rustic/elegant/holiday theme to life beautifully, and the Manor House team cooked up a truly incredible meal. As Heather had told me multiple times throughout the day, she had a wedding “dream team,” and it clearly showed! We hope you enjoy this peek into their sunny December wedding day. We feel blessed to have been there to capture it for them, and wish them a lifetime of happiness!

Pike Place & Waterfront Engagement | Ariel & Geo | Seattle, WA

This sweet couple met while serving in the United States Air Force, so it seemed fitting to post their engagement session on Veteran’s Day! Ariel grew up in Issaquah, and she & Geo recently relocated to the area, so she thought it would be fun to visit the brick lined streets and alleys around Pike Place Market & Post Alley, as well as the Seattle waterfront for their engagement session. We had so much fun wandering the historic district with them, and loved capturing their budding love.

We hope you love their photos, and a huge Happy Veterans’ Day to Ariel, Geo, and to all who have served and continue to serve our country so selflessly. We appreciate you more than words can express.

Intimate Canlis Wedding | Hanh & Quang | Seattle, WA

Every once in a while, we are invited to capture a wedding celebration that is small and intimate – a beautiful gathering of many of the people the couple holds nearest and dearest to their heart. As photographers and fellow human beings, these weddings are some of our favorites, and Hahn & Quang’s day was no exception. It was a quintessential Seattle day – from the getting ready portraits at the Fairmont Olympic to the gray skies over the Great Wheel down by the waterfront, to the warm and romantic ceremony and reception at the place that put themselves on the map as Seattle’s special occasions restaurant, Canlis. The bride and groom were elegant, the flowers and decor timeless, and the food absolutely delicious. We hope you enjoy this glimpse into their day – we certainly loved capturing their special celebration. ~The Popes
