Steve + Kristi {Pan Pacific Hotel Wedding Photography}

“Guys… we are not classy enough to be at our own wedding,” was Kristi’s opening line at the reception. Well, that might not have been entirely accurate; but the mix of white roses and candles adorning the tables coupled with organza-wrapped diet Pepsi cans as guest gifts was both adorably unique and an accurate depiction of what huge personalities Steve & Kristi have. Both separately and together they are two of the kindest, gentlest, most hilarious souls I have ever met – Kevin and I felt like we wanted to just hang out with them forever.  Their big day, set at the impressive Pan Pacific Hotel in downtown Seattle, was filled with little kids running everywhere, constant laughing, plenty of tears (the good kind), a few well-placed swear words, and of course about a million cans of diet Pepsi. Steve and Kristi, as a police officer and an ER nurse, respectively, spend every day laying themselves out to serve everyone around them; today, their friends & family came together to serve, celebrate and uplift them for the amazing people that they are.

Yes, the sisters ARE actually hot-gluing themselves into their dresses. High five.

Steve’s sister stood as his Best Woman today, and I have to say that I felt ALL the feels seeing what an incredible, supportive relationship these two have built over the years.

Kristi and Steve had their sisters stand with them as their official party, but Kristi just couldn’t leave out her posse of best girlfriends – so they joined in as Official BFF’s!

These silicone wedding bands were a joke Kristi planned for Steve – he thinks they are the coolest thing ever, so since his actual wedding band is a “normal” one, she bought six of these and had her BFF’s all hand him one as they walked down the aisle. Now he has a different ring for every day of the week… and one of them glows in the dark! 🙂

Steve’s brother-in-law Todd, who officiated their ceremony, read this book as part of his gift to them: “When You Are Happy,” by Eileen Spinelli. Seriously, all the feels. All the tears.

With the formalities over, the party begins! And let me tell you – between Steve & Kristi, their energetic crowd of friends and the talented DJ Dylan with Otto-Matic Mobile Music, this party was rockin’ ALL NIGHT LONG! Pan Pacific Hotel Wedding Steve Kristi_0072Pan Pacific Hotel Wedding Steve Kristi_0073Pan Pacific Hotel Wedding Steve Kristi_0074Pan Pacific Hotel Wedding Steve Kristi_0075

The view of the Space Needle at night from the Pan Pacific Hotel balcony is simply beautiful.
