I can see why! 😍 I remember a few you previously posted. Your ceremony is so sweet! Love the ones of you & both of you sitting on the outdoor bench. And what cool theater photos! Wow the lighting. ♥️ 💜
Are all of these from the same venue or did your photographer follow you to different locations throughout the day? I'd love to know where they were all taken because each location is so unique and pretty!
My favorite is the landscape shot of you kissing under that painting/mural. There's so much perfect, eclectic decor going on there but you two still stand out marvelously. Definitely some of my favorite pictures I've seen on the site Your photographer did an awesome jobs setting up well crafted shots and capturing the best of you both!
We planned for two locations with our photographer (Myrtle Creative Co - Ann Marie). The wedding venue (Ruston Chapel, Tacoma, WA) was fabulous, affordable, and really took care of just about everything there, including the decor. The second location was just for extra photos and is part of a wonderful pacific NW chain of quirky/historic renovated hotels/restaurants/bars/venues called McMenamins, this one is called Elks Temple, also in Tacoma, WA. We were originally supposed to get married and celebrate at one of their other locations outside Portland, OR. When we had to re-schedule and come up with a local plan B courtesy of COVID, we wanted to take photos at Elks Temple as a nod to our original plans.
I was only able to get confirmation that we COULD take photos there about 30 minutes before the ceremony after talking with the manager a couple times earlier in the week. Our back up plan with the photographer was an outdoor Chihuly Glass Garden exhibit not far from Elks Temple. Thankfully McMenamins came through! Their venue manager let us into several bars that been closed since COVID for private shots and 3pm on a Sunday was quiet enough that we may as well have had even the open bars to ourselves!
We're both huge fans of McMenamins (we stay at their hotels several times a year), so being able to incorporate them into our wedding day was absolutely magical and incredible exciting. The colors and quirkiness of their decor really does just make for amazing photos!
