August 5, 2016 was a perfect day for a rooftop wedding at the Fremont Foundry. This landmark, and several other Seattle well known destinations, were the perfect background for this lovely couple’s wedding. Not only were Claire and Tristan a pleasure to work with, but all of their friends and family were filled with so much joy that their feelings became infectious! I left their wedding on cloud nine, and I’m sure many others did as well.

Our day started with some getting ready photos at their home. We then met Tristan near Pike Place Market for the first look. It was clear to us immediately that these two had a special connection. From there, our couple enjoyed touring the city in style thanks to British Motor Coach and we had fun finding creative ways to photograph them in the most iconic vistas our lovely city has to offer. Once we arrived at the Fremont Foundry we enjoyed a break and lunch which the couple wisely planned for before doing family portraits and the ceremony.

During the ceremony this pair shared thoughtful and heartfelt vows that left my eyes a little wet behind the camera. The reception that followed was filled with more happy tears during some wonderful toasts and a beautiful first dance at sunset. At the end of the night this couple jumped aboard the best get away car I’ve ever seen, a vintage VW bus decorated with flowers and a just married decal.

Not only was each event during the celebration wonderful, but they had swoon worthy details I had to share as well! The Fremont Foundry’s view was a great adornment to the nuptials and complimented the gold, navy blue, and fuchsia color scheme.
