This day was one for the books. First of all, Kevin & I drove through SNOW -in April– on our way down to Seattle. When we met Marc & Paula at their hotels, the sun was just starting to peek out, and by the time we were wrapping up pictures with the party, there were ominous storm clouds swirling our way. As we arrived at the ceremony venue, it was raining; as the couple was pronounced man & wife, hail punctuated the rooftop; it lightened just long enough for a few more quick pictures, and then was back to rain. …Talk about crazy weather!!
But beyond the weather patterns, let me tell you: by the end of the night, Kevin & I had a hard time pulling ourselves away from this party. Seriously, we didn’t want to leave! Marc & Paula are one of those couples who are so obviously made to be together that anyone can see it just from looking at them. The way they make each other smile with a happiness that fills the room is intoxicating. All of the details of this day were amazing – from grandmother’s pearls to lace from Malta around the flowers, to homemade pies in mason jars for dessert – but the real party was in the love that just oozed from everyone in the room. Laughing, joking, crying, dancing… what an amazing, incredible day this was!
Paula meets Marc’s grandmother via Skype before the ceremony; they had Grandma skype into the wedding because she couldn’t travel to be there in person.
