My dear friends Lyndsay and Kelly are getting married tomorrow at Palace Ballroom, one of my favorite downtown venues and caterer. An urban Fall wedding with an emphasis on food, cheer and family. This wedding is very close to my heart because I am maid of honor and Lyndsay is more like a sister than anything else. I could not be happier for her. Kelly is her other half in every sense and the two of them together exude happiness and the type of relationship we all strive for.
One area where me and Lyndsay differ is that she is a huge sports FANATIC and lucky for her so is Kelly. They have season tickets to the Seahawks and each game is quite a production, from getting to the tailgating lots at the crack of dawn to grilling breakfast on the truck complete with a sofa and flat screen tv in the back. It is no laughing matter when it comes to their home team dedication so it was only fitting that their engagement session take place doing just that. Matthew Sumi of Flowertoss Photography met Lyndsay and Kelly down by Qwest Field and they had a blast taking pics, having some breakfast and laughing uncontrollably. Friends and family joined them for the festivities making it one of the most unique engagement sessions and my personal favorite.
Fall being Lyndsay's favorite season is the perfect backdrop for their affair. Colors ranging from rusty orange and chocolate brown to crip navy blue set the tone. Vintage umbrella's from my go to shop, Bella Umbrella, will act as accessories and possibly a necessary prop during photos ranging in a variety of colors and patterns. Hand picked antique jewelry and handbags by Lyndsay will adorn the girls while the guys sport chocolate brown suspenders and orange button dahlia boutonnieres created by talented florist, Julie Borrud of Bella Rugosa. At Palace Ballroom an abundance of candle luminaries accented by delicate orange mokara orchids, a heavenly dessert bar and homemade salted caramel favors will be in tow. Yes, Fall is in the air.
Congrats Lyndsay and Kelly! I can't wait for tomorrow to be here.
