Liesl and Jeremy's Wedding!

Oh my, I am so excited about this wedding... it was truly a magical day, Adam and I feel so blessed to have been there to capture it. Liesl and Jeremy were married at The Ruins, a beautiful private event space that I think is one of Seattle’s best-kept secret wedding locations.

I met Liesl at the Alexis Hotel the morning of the wedding to photograph her getting her hair and makeup done by Erin Skipley of Bellatrix Studio.... beautiful job Erin!

She wore part of her Grandmother's veil in her hair, I loved how the delicate flowers went with her dress.

Liesl's Monique Lhuillier dress was a vision, I could not stop photographing it!! The bustle was custom made for her, and was inspired by a vintage dress she had seen in an old photograph... amazing.

We had such a fun time with their families, thank you all for a great portrait session... group hug!! :)

Liesl's sister, Justine, and her fiance Kurt (below) are getting married this September in Port Gamble, Washington... we're so excited to be there, what an adorable couple they are!!!

The Ruins did an amazing job with all the flowers and decor. As the guests arrived, each of the women received a flower for their hair, such a great idea!

The photo below was taken right before Liesl and Jeremy were lifted up in the air for the traditional Jewish Hora dance... I think the look on her face is so great!

During the Shtick the guests dance and perform for the couple. It's always so fun to see what everyone comes up with, I love the photo below of the pyramid that some of the guests made. Adam was standing right behind the couple when he took the photo... I think you can truly feel the energy in the room.

For their first dance, Liesl and Jeremy asked a friend, and opera singer, to sing La Vie en Rose for them.... it was so beautiful to watch.

At the end of the night Liesl changed into a fantastic going away outfit and the two of them peddled off on a red tandem bicycle... how great is that!!

Thanks again to both of you for a great day, congratulations... and happy honeymooning!!!!

When I look at these I'm totally enveloped in the moment you photographed. Everything else stops around me, and I'm captured and taken to the magic of their experience. It is truly wonderful to be ale to be given a glimpse into the spirit, beauty and love of their day. Thank you for your intuitive artistry! Kandace

Best wedding ever! Your photos make the beautiful attire, decor and bride even more beautiful! I'm so glad you posted so many pictures - I kept going "don't end, don't end" because some photographers only post five or six.

Such a beautiful wedding! I love, love, love Liesl's dress! I wore a lace Monique Lhuillier for my own wedding, but if I'd seen Leisl's dress first, I probably would have wanted to switch dresses! Thank you for sharing these beautiful pictures with us.
