Seattle wedding photographer makes panoramic wedding portrait at the Columbia Tower Club

Jack Safar and Will Bean were married at the Columbia Tower Club  in August and after the ceremony we cleared the chairs and everybody posed for this large group wedding portrait.

I really love the Columbia Tower Club. the view is splendid on a clear day and we could fit 160+ people in one panoramic frame. The 12″ x 36″ print look spectacular as well.

Will Bean and Jack Safar  have been together for years. Last month, their happy mothers got to walk them down the isle at the Columbia Tower Club   where the two finally married, surrounded by family, friends and spectacular panoramic views of Seattle. Before the wedding ceremony, we had a nice time taking pictures around downtown with the skyline in the background, as well as at the renovated train station on King Street. It was a beautiful day full of joy; just one of all the obvious reasons why legal recognition of same-sex marriage by Washington and eighteen other states is a wonderful thing. Hopefully, same-sex couples everywhere will be able to enjoy the celebration of their love and commitment the same way soon.

Will and Jack were married in a same sex wedding cermony at the Columbia Tower Club

On Sunday I had the pleasure to photograph the wedding ceremony of Will Bean and Jack Safar on top of the tallest skyscraper in Seattle at the the Columbia Tower Club which has floor-to-ceiling picture windows featuring spectacular panoramic views of Seattle.

Before the wedding we took some pictures around town including some with the tower in the background. Throughout the day I could not help noticing that I was not the only one making photographs. I just started looking though the pictures and wanted to post a few images to preview the the rest to come when I finish up editing them all.

After 14 1/2 years of being together, Amber Pearce and Christina Smith decided to take advantage of last year’s change of same-sex marriage in Washington’s state law. They were married at the King County Courthouse in downtown Seattle, accompanied by two of their closest friends as witnesses, in a touching ceremony in  a beautiful old courtroom. It was lovely. The following day they had a reception in the fabulous garden of their Ballard home and afterwards we headed down to Golden Gardens Beach for some pictures.  Here are some of the highlights.
