Skansonia Wedding: Sarah + Mark

Oct 1, 2013 | Posted by

Sarah and Mark met each other at Occidental College in Los Angeles. They fell in love on a cross-country road trip. On a blazing day in September , they tied the knot aboard the beautiful Skansonia on South Lake Union, surrounded by an incredible – and incredibly hilarious – group of family and friends. I had the pleasure of photographing their rehearsal dinner the night before, and between that evening and their wedding day, I heard countless stories about Sarah and Mark that made me not only want to be their friend even more, but made me feel like I’d known them forever. Everyone there had the nicest and funniest things to say about them. Their wedding was beautiful and fun, and I was honored to capture their day.

Sarah and Mark, may your future be full of plenty of love, laughter, and scooter rides.

Sarah and her bridesmaids all wore TOMS. As someone who’s worn some of the most uncomfortable bridesmaid’s shoes ever, I was seriously jealous.

Their guest book was individual notecards on which folks could type special messages using Mark’s grandparents’ vintage typewriter. Sarah&Mark_090713_242__web
