A couple of Sundays ago, I had the pleasure of photographing Natalie and Steven's wedding at the Pan Pacific Hotel here in Seattle. You might remember them from their fun Pike Place engagement session from this spring. Natalie and Steven are one of a couple of couples this year that found each other via the world wide web. They were both somewhat recent transplants to Seattle; Natalie from Florida and Steven all the way from Australia. They both found themselves looking for someone to share an evening with and maybe their lives if worked out. Needless to say, when both Chemistry.com and another dating site paired the two, they went for it and went on a date. Fast forward a couple years to July 25, 2010, we watched a radiant Natalie walk down the aisle to her smiling groom, Steven.
Their wedding was sprinkled with elegant details, kept simple and beautiful to match the "less is more" feel of the amazing Pan Pacific Hotel. Natalie chose a dark purple for her colors, and her florist, Aria Style matched the color with beautiful flowers and lighting through out the ceremony and reception to match. There was a candy table of ALL purple candy (which was devoured by guests by the end of the night!) thanks to Natalie's cunning online abilities. Did you know you can order m&m's just the color you want? LOVE IT!
They had officiant Annemarie Juhlian walk them through the ceremony with great details about them both as people as well as a couple!
They had a smaller affair as the mass of their guests came from out of state, some as far as Australia, Florida and Jersey. The great thing about having so many out of town guests is that many stayed late into the night dancing to music by the talented wedding DJ, Chris Graves of Your Song DJ.
