Audra + Chris are getting hitched today at Corson Building
Audra and Chris are getting married today at the Corson Building in Georgetown. Corson was created by acclaimed chef and owner Matt Dillon as a true farm to table restaurant experience. An old cement building nestled under an overpass with a train crossing running through the back and the chance of airplanes flying into Boeing Field overhead it is an unlikely oasis. Lush gardens, Italian globe lights strung on the lawn and a charming brick patio are just some of the features that make this venue feel warm and inviting.
A few pics to share from their engagement session with the fabulous Jenny Jimenez. I could not be more thrilled to have another Jenny J wedding! In true Seattle fashion it poured (and I mean poured!) the day of their shoot so Jenny took these gorgeous shots at their historic Capitol Hill condo.
What are Audra and Chris most excited about with Corson? The food of course! We visited Dillon's other restaurant Sitka & Spruce in the beautiful Melrose Market atop Cap Hill for an amazing lunch of fresh halibut, raw olives and warm dates with homemade yogurt, sea salt and honey and talked menu ideas with Dillon. The final menu served today will be a surprise to Audra and Chris and their intimate wedding of 65 guests. Other talented vendors bringing the day together is uber talented florist Katherine Andersen of Marigold + Mint (also located in Melrose Market), macaroons from Honore Bakery in Ballard and a mouth watering lemon citron cake from Creme de la Creme.
Both Audra and Chris are talented artists and Audra hand painted a drawing of the two of them at Corson Building for their invitations which I adore. You may notice chickens in the drawing, yes, we will have some chickens roaming around too! Heres to one of the sweetest couples I know on their wedding day! See you soon.
