Stylized. Royal. Urban. Modern. Rustic. 1940’s. Rockabilly. I don’t know if I’ve ever photographed such a wedding, but somehow it was a glorious cornucopia (yes, I said cornucopia…) of all those things and more! Rae and Rob met in college in Chicago. She has her pilot’s license. He loves to cook, especially dishes of the red meat variety.  When they started planning for their lively celebration, they turned to none other than the fabulous Lisa Chambers of Chambers & Co to bring it all together. And boy did she EVER. Eggplant, teal, and touches of copper. Succulents and lotus pods. And oh, the whimsically fun rock candy. It was Disneyland for the eyes, lemme tell you. So many beautiful details and so much fun style really spoke about Rob and Rae’s personalities and love of a goooood party.

And it all starts with and announcement to your friends and family. Check out these beautiful save the dates and the custom invitation suite from Paper Moxie. Can you believe that Sheryl MADE this pattern JUST for Rae & Rob? It’s GORGEOUS. Talk about going the extra mile for your clients! And it was all set atop a bed of sugary sweet rock candy and surrounded by handmade votives by Glassybaby (I’m not going to say I DIDN’T eat the rock candy after I shot it because that would be a fib).

Rae’s wedding gown is a custom design from couture designer Luly Yang and boasts an asymmetrical collar, sash, and ruffles galore. The inspiration for such a grand gown? A dress Katherine Hepburn wore in 1940 in the classic movie, The Philadelphia Story (and who doesn’t love her leading man, Cary Grant!! Swoon.).

Thistles, succulents, eggplants, pheasant feathers, and vintage ribbon makes up these unique woodsy bouquets and bouts from Fremont’s own Willow and Bloom. I can’t get enough of this bouquet! Perfectly coiffed hair and rad red lips courtesty the uber talented Erin Skipley. Who else?!

Oh Rob, looking so dapper in your suit from downtown men’s clothier Mario’s. LOVE your purple and teal dotted pocket square.

Beautiful looks and unique style aside, I think THIS is the true Rae + Rob! Never taking anything too seriously.

Meet Harvey. Rae & Rob’s first child and honorary groomsman, sporting his very own doggie tux!

Willow and Bloom’s florals and the Prop Gallery West’s swag and copper chuppah add a splash of drama to the urban gem of a rustic warehouse, Sodo Park.

Don’t you just dig their super unique and raw diamond wedding bands?! They’re made by Todd Reed, and they found them at Seattle’s Contemporary Art Jeweler Facere.

Rock candy, Glassybaby, and regal escort cards! Can’t get enough of the teal and purple.

Their beautiful plum, teal, and copper wedding cake was designed by New Renaissance and sits atop a breathtaking Raise The Cake cake stand, and was supplemented by the Dahlia Lounge‘s famed coconut cream pies! Lisa Chambers scoured the city for R’s to place all over the soft seating area at the front of the ceremony room.

The whimsical kids table, with handmade pinwheels! Every kid should be so lucky!!

Check out these AMAZING hats that the groom’s sister designed for each of the bridesmaids. Rae gathered feathers, ribbons, and flowers and sent them to Giddy, where she designed some really fantastic toppers! I LOVE them! I think she may have an Etsy shop….. Anyone know what it is? I’m dying to see what else she makes!

Appetizers by the amazing artisinal and organic Herban Feast pictured with those delish coconut pies from Dahlia’s.

Who doesn’t love a choreographed first dance! In keeping with their 40’s inspired wedding, they danced the Charleston. With ruffles and feet a flyin, I actually had to pay attention to be sure I wasn’t kicked in the face in all of the excitement. Sometimes when you’re behind the lens you just forget exactly HOW close you are to the excitement! And the band? None other than the rockabilly Seattle favs The Dusty 45’s!! It was SO much fun!!!!!!

And of course, the very best part of a Jewish wedding, the hora! I love the napkin tug, the near spill, and the dancing in circles as the crowd engulfed us all in elation.

“But wait! There’s MORE!” she says!
