Casey Blackstead and Brandon Wagner were married last Saturday at the Sanctuary at Admiral in West Seattle on a wonderful May Saturday. Rain had been predicted but it never showed up. They are such a great couple and even though Brandon was suffering a cold, after some chicken soup before he got dressed he was good to go. The Sanctuary at Admiral in West Seattle. It’s a beautiful old church of the Christian Scientists that was re-designed into a wedding and events venue that was designated as a Seattle Historic Landmark in 2009. The day went really well thanks to Kristen Tsiatsios of Jubilee Event Engineers was the fabulous wedding coordinator. I have just stared to go through the pictures but wanted to put up a quick preview , so here are a few of my first favorites. Jana and I loved the ending when they lighted the lanterns and had them float off into the night sky. See the last picture below.

Vinnie and Jeff were married at The Bridges Golf Club in San Ramon, CA on May 5th and after the wedding ceremony, everybody at the wedding came together for a large group panoramic portrait with the bride and groom. I am still going over all the rest of the pictures, but wanted to get this one out for them to see. Here is a link to the previous post of their Bridges Golf Club Wedding Pictures.

After waiting what seemed like eons for a nice and sunny weekend, Casey and Brandon and I finally got together on Sunday and made some portraits in the glorious weather. I did feel like spring has arrived and all of the buds in the trees confirmed that. Casey and Brandon will be getting married in May and it was good to spend some time hanging out with them before thew wedding. Brandon is a natural cutup and was a lot of fun to photograph. Casey is beautiful and they make a wonderful couple together. I made many pictures of them but Here are 8 of my favorites. Thanks to Monica Frisell, my assistant on this shoot.

Rouella Mendonca and Harneet Singh were married on one of those gray cloudy days we have in mid-February. Just before sunset, after their second wedding ceremony of the day, a glimmer of sunlight worked its way through the gloom. The sky in the picture above should give you some idea of what the light was like. Yet Rouella and Harneet were so happy – it could have been pouring and it would not have mattered to them.
Coming from different faiths, they decided to celebrate their marriage with two ceremonies, reflecting their Sikh and Catholic denominations. The Sikh ceremony took place at the Sikh Centre Of Seattle in Bothell. The beautiful and simple rite was accompanied by wonderful Indian music, and it was a delight to witness. After a meal and a break, we headed over to Blessed Sacrament Parish in the University District, where Rouella and Harneet had their Catholic wedding ceremony. This required a different wedding dress for Rouella. It was stunning to see her emerge from the rectory of the church. Her dad walked her down the aisle. Harneet looked on as she came up to the altar. The wedding party was quite small, with just two grooms men and two bridesmaids.
This was one of the hardest set of wedding pictures I have had to edit in a while, as there were so many wonderful images of the many details from both ceremonies- it hurt to leave them out! Below is my best effort of doing their wedding day justice with a small number of my favorite images. The slideshow shows a larger and more complete set of Rouella and Harneet’s wedding photos. Special thanks to Megan Keller of a KURANT EVENT for the great work she did organizing and planning the events, and to my second photographer Monica Frisell.
Here is a link to the web gallery with all of Rouella and Harneet’s wedding pictures and a link Rouella and Harneet’s Sikh and Catholic Wedding Photos to pictures previewed previously.
