From Amanda, Emily and Elizabeth’s photographer: E&E have such a sweet and enduring love for each other. The morning of their November wedding was cooooold, but clear and sunny. It was also busy with friends and family preparing the 8th floor of the Pacific Tower that overlooks Seattle. The excited brides planned long tables to diagonally fill the space where their guests would both watch their ceremony and enjoy a second Thanksgiving feast. Each table was named after a bird to follow one of the sweetest relationship stories I’ve ever heard…
Emily and her cousins were riding in the car together one day. One of them was looking through an online dating app and swiping past profiles she wasn’t interested in. Soon the others added commentary, including the word “Duck” whenever she would swipe past one and “Goose” when she would give the profile a thumbs up. Fast-forward to early in Emily’s relationship with Elizabeth… there was a gathering with Emily’s family and upon seeing the way they looked at each other one of Emily’s cousins pulled her aside and asked, “Is she your Goose?” Awwwwww! She was, and she is.
We started the formal photography with a first look at Four Points – across the street from the hotel where everyone was staying. The pillars and urban backdrop added the perfect variety and compliment to their venue. Elizabeth & Emily were ecstatic when they first saw each other and hugged so much that their dresses became attached at the bust! Haha!!!
With their siblings by their sides as bridesmaids and bridesmen and Emily’s uncle officiating, these two read their vows of support, promises, and love to each other while the sun went down behind the Olympic Mountains and the Seattle lights began to glow behind them. Happy tears, laughter, and love swept over the whole building as the wedding ceremony ended with a kiss and transitioned into a sequin filled dance party.
