A three-day event. What a great idea when you truly want to enjoy each celebration designed for you and your guests. Ever wondered how you can pull it off by having an event that not only pleases everyone, but also allows you to mingle, chill, celebrate and enjoy moments? Well this is how Jason & Bess did it.
Day one was a pre-wedding party with close friends and co-workers, dancing at a club, toasting to life all night with lots of high energy. Being a few weeks before the actual wedding day, hangover was ok and they were able to work off all the alcohol and food. Being sore from dancing all night was ok, they had time to rest it off. No one had to worry if mom or uncle Ben are bored or can’t stand the music.
Day two was the ceremony and a small lunch reception. Immediate family and best friends attended a roof top wedding over looking the Puget sound. A very touching ceremony with an accordion playing softly in the background, adding a Parisian feel to this beautiful fall afternoon. We started the photo shoot with the bride and groom at the Seattle Art Museum, walked through the Pike Market and Post Alley, then stopped for Gelato before touch ups at the Four Seasons Hotel. Across the street, the ceremony was held. Short and sweet but very meaningful words made vows to each other tear-filled… happy tears, even I was crying! The newlyweds, along with about 20+ guests walked up to Wild Ginger on 3rd Avenue.
Day three was the combined reception, held at the Cedar River Watershed Education Center in North Bend. This is where Jason’s and Bess’ friends and families all meet and get to celebrate their union. Good food, good company, good wine…surrounded by mountains, the reception hall’s walls were open to allow the outside, in. It was a casual event and everyone enjoyed the afternoon.
All three events were fun and memorable. We’re glad they chose us to capture those special days.
