Allie & David: The Cutest Little Chapel

I don’t know if I’m insanely lucky but it seems like every single couple whose wedding day I get to share in is just beyond sweet. Allie and David gathered all their families and friends on a typical slightly drizzly Seattle afternoon at the adorable Ruston Chapel. Just take a look at that iconic door. After they exchanged their vows and shared a few sweet moments in front of the chapel door in front of their friends and family, we all made our way down to the Rose Gardens at the Point Defiance Zoo.

Allie, David and I wound our way through several of the wooded pathways in the gardens to find these locations for their wedding portraits. I love how photography can completely transform a space. That photo with the giant tree on the bridge, I would swear that’s in some massive forest on the Olympic Peninsula or in California. But nope. It was about a two minute walk from the main street that leads through the parking lot and right off a heavily trafficked walking trail. But you wouldn’t know that looking at it!

This couple also forever changed my views on what a wedding dinner should look like. Guys. Breakfast for dinner. What the actual f. Why have I never thought of this or witnessed this. Everybody loves breakfast! Such an awesome idea and Thyme Well Spent catering really delivered.

Oh AND this bride made her own cake. And it’s not a hodge podge mess that I would make. It’s a stunning, beautiful, scrumptious looking cake. That’s some talent right there. Had a fantastic day mingling with this fun group and was happy to send them off out of this rain and right on to their sunny Hawaii honeymoon.
