Back in the day when I was a corporate desk hugger Melissa was a colleague of mine. Flash forward several years and we reunited when I photographed her wedding. Melissa, her husband Craig (a former fighter pilot!) and I had great fun all day long running around from downtown to Holy Rosary church and Lincoln Park in West Seattle then across town to the Seattle Tennis Club. Even though it was a jam packed day I hope you can tell by their expressions that they really enjoyed their wedding. I’d love to impart some advice on newly engaged couples or those of you who may be mere days from getting married. Take a page out of Melissa and Craig’s book and relax, go with the flow, and focus on having a lovely time. They spent plenty of time planning a beautiful, elegant wedding and when the day finally came they fully enjoyed it. Speaking of beautiful wedding I cannot say enough good things about floral design company Botanique. Owner Kelly Sullivan is just a love. Professional, talented and very pleasant to work with. Enough gushing for now. Check out Melissa and Craig’s big day!
