Hi, friends. This week I'm sharing photos from our wedding, starting with our portraits. We shot these during an hour at the Ballard Locks. Stefan and I chose the Locks because it has lots of variety: a botanical garden, huge trees, a few sculptures, the water, and old buildings. Our photographers were awesome at giving us direction and making it a fun experience. (All photos by JL Photografia.)
My dress is from J.Crew (the Gracie gown) and Stefan's suit is Hugo Boss. I loved my dress – it was light, comfy, and didn't even need to be altered.
Yay for black wedding shoes! (And I only semi-tripped once. That's almost a miracle, considering I never wear heels anymore ever since I started working from home.)
Above is a section of the actual locks, which are used to move boats from one water level to another. When a boat is coming through, you can get stuck on one side. And yes, that happened to us.
When you're all dressed up like this, it's inevitable to get stares from other people. But, I mean, don't you stare at brides & grooms walking around in public? I do.
I was surprisingly relaxed on the big day. I think it's because I worried about everything so much in the months leading up to it that when the actual day came, I had used up all my worrying. (Okay, joking. The secret to being relaxed on your wedding day is to focus on enjoying the day. Things can go wrong and it won't ruin your wedding. I promise.)
Alrighty. Enough portraits; let's get over to our wedding venue. Coming up tomorrow: the cocktail hour!
