Seattle Yacht Club wedding: Courtney + Sean

Sep 2, 2016 | Posted by | 2 Comments

Since she was a young girl, Courtney knew she wanted to have a fairytale wedding. Growing up as a Disney kid (how I fondly refer to anyone who couldn’t get enough of Simba, Ariel, Belle, and the likes) how could she not. ;) Her parents may or may not have talked up the fun and excitement of eloping, ;) but nope, she was going to have her day to be a princess. Soon after they met, Sean proved to be the man of her dreams – kindhearted, witty, with a strong pair of arms to wrap her in a hug whenever she needed it. As Courtney walked down the aisle towards her prince charming, smiling and spreading her infectious laugh, her fairytale was complete.

Courtney and Sean’s wedding at the Seattle Yacht Club was on a very warm and sunny day. Boats full of sunbathers passing through the Montlake Cut honked their horns in congratulations as we took photos, and there were few dry eyes during their ceremony. Thankfully, the rest of the evening was all smiles and laughter.

Courtney and Sean, thank you for choosing me to be part of your wedding day – not only to document your union, but to witness your love. You both have such kind hearts and fun personalities, and I so appreciate the opportunity I’ve had to become your friend. Congratulations, and have the most amazing time on your Mediterranean cruise!

Courtney had all the frills and bling fit for a princess, for sure. ;)

Courtney and Sean’s first look was tender and sweet…and may or may not have required a makeup retouch! ;) seattle-yacht-club-wedding-courtney-sean_05

We wandered off of the Yacht Club property just a few blocks away to a park where we could find some shade from the super warm day. Thankfully the gorgeous tall trees also provided a lovely backdrop! seattle-yacht-club-wedding-courtney-sean_12 seattle-yacht-club-wedding-courtney-sean_13 seattle-yacht-club-wedding-courtney-sean_14 seattle-yacht-club-wedding-courtney-sean_15 seattle-yacht-club-wedding-courtney-sean_16 seattle-yacht-club-wedding-courtney-sean_17 seattle-yacht-club-wedding-courtney-sean_18 seattle-yacht-club-wedding-courtney-sean_19

Their ceremony was under a billowing white tent, which was a nice relief from the warm weather! seattle-yacht-club-wedding-courtney-sean_20

Before the end of the evening, we snuck outside as the sun slipped over the horizon for a few photos along the water. A perfect ending to a beautiful day. <3 seattle-yacht-club-wedding-courtney-sean_34
