This tops all of the weddings I’ve ever photographed in terms of uniqueness and adventure. I met the couple and their wedding guests at the couple’s floating home on Seattle’s Lake Union and we took some fun portraits at Gasworks Park while we dodged raindrops. As luck would have it the skies opened up and we enjoyed a beautifully sunny boat ride around Lake Union as we made our way to the surprise wedding location. A pilot, caterer and myself joined this couple along with their 3 kids, 2 friends and a sister in a Kenmore Air seaplane that took us to a Pacific Northwest uninhabited island. The couple kept the family and friends in the dark such that they had no idea where the wedding was to take place and their expressions were pretty priceless when they learned they’d be climbing into a ?10? seat seaplane that would fly them directly above downtown Seattle and over to an island that would be all ours for the afternoon. The pilot dropped us off and flew away leaving us alone on the island for a few hours to enjoy a gourmet picnic catered by Northwest Floatplane Picnics and to witness a wedding. This couple is anything but conventional and thought it would be fun for everyone to wear silly hats which gave everyone a laugh. We went back to the rooftop of the couple’s home and watched a colorful sunset as they cut their cake as husband and wife. It was truly lovely and a celebration I will never forget. These photos represent their day as shown in the album that I designed for them.
