Arctic Club Seattle Wedding photography of Shauna and Matt's wedding in the  Arctic Club Northern Lights Dome Room
After being together for a number of years, Shauna and Matt didn’t want to do the traditional wedding day thing. Having coordinated hundreds of weddings at the Skansonia, Shauna wanted something different. She didn’t wear a white wedding dress – instead, she wore a beautiful rose sequin number matching their daughter Ella’s cute little dress. There were donuts from Top Pot rather than a wedding cake. She didn’t throw the wedding bouquet (didn’t even have one) and there was no garter toss either. Instead, there were trivia games and dancing games, and prizes, and a magician to entertain all the invited guests including over twenty children.

The landmark Arctic Club Hotel and it’s Northern Lights Dome Room was where they had their beautiful wedding on one of the last days of 2014. It was a beautiful wedding ceremony and everyone had a blast. Here are some of my favorite highlights of the day.

For my last wedding of 2014 on Saturday I had the pleasure of photographing the wedding ceremony of Shauna and Matthew at the landmark Arctic Club Hotel and it’s Northern Lights Dome Room, one of my favorite places for a wedding. Shauna and Matthew are off to Mexico at the moment so I wanted to share with the a preview of some highlights of the day. After I have had time to edit and process the rest of the pictures I will post some more here. Have a great 2015!

Jumping for joy!
The weather in January was mostly dark and wet but on January 12th it cleared up very nicely which was a good thing for Erin Danielson and Raymond Tse  who had picked that day for their wedding. After getting ready in rooms at the downtown Seattle Arctic Club Hotel  we made some portraits and  then headed up to the Blessed Sacrament Church in the University District for the wedding ceremony. After the ceremony while most everyone headed back to the Arctic Club for the reception, we took off to make some sunset pictures with Erin and Raymond. Above they were jumping for joy as the sun went down behind a low hanging cloud bank over the Olympic Mountains across Puget Sound. Love that band of red sunset sky peeking through.

After some really fun pictures we headed back to the Dome Room of the Arctic Club to meet uo with their guests and join the wedding reception. Below are some of my favorite pictures from their wedding and below them is a slideshow of a more complete set of  their wedding pictures. Special  thanks to my assistant photographer Monica Frisell.

First look outside the Arctic Club Hotel in Seattle WA

 

Our first wedding to photograph of the New Year was that of  Erin Danielson and Raymond Tse on Jan 12th. For a pleasant surprise the weather was wonderful and the sun shined like no one would have predicted. So for Plan B we were unexpectedly able to do a number of pictures outdoor.

Above, Raymond sees Erin for the first time outside the entrance to the downtown Seattle Arctic Club.  I have not been back to the Arctic Club in Seattle since it was acquired by the Hilton Hotel and completely refurbished. It is an amazing vintage building. They have restored all of the most elegant details, including the bar in the lobby and the Doom Room with its amazing ceiling dome,  preserving the atmosphere of a vintage gentlemans club for Arctic explorers in downtown Seattle. The lobby is decorated with framed portraits of past member explorers.

They both got ready for their wedding in rooms there. Later after the wedding ceremony at Blessed Sacrament Parish Church,  their wedding reception was in the fabulous Dome Room of the Arctic Club Seattle.  We are still early in the process of editing all of the wedding pictures,  but wanted to show off just a few to preview what will be coming. Congratulations to Erin and Raymond.
