Amanda and Nick’s wedding really was a pleasure from the start to the end. The love and mutual respect they have for each other is both heart warming and inspiring. I can only imagine how much their cheeks must have hurt the next day from the none stop ear to ear grins the two of them wore all day.

My own personal highlights from Amanda and Nick’s gorgeous Snohomish wedding have to be their first look which was just so sweet and authentic and Nick and his Mom’s special dance. The way he hugged her so tight as they danced and she cupped his face in her hands as she kissed his forehead. That really made my eyes water. I heard someone say you can always tell a good man by the way he treats his mother 🙂 Thank you for inviting me to document your love story Amanda and Nick and thank you to your lovely family and friends for welcoming me in.

Wedding at Corson Building in SODO Seattle, WA

Wedding Photographs by Joanna Monger Photography – Seattle Wedding Photographer

It has been about 18 months since Kim and Brian approached me about photographing their wedding and I have loved getting to know them and see their vision come to life. I knew it was going to be a lovely day filled with lots of special details and sweet moments and with the help of the ladies at Bixby & Pine the day certainly did not disappoint. I could gush forever about all the pretty details, how Brian got all teary eyed as he saw his bride for the first time, the amazing food or seeing how happy Kim’s son Kaiden was about the two of them getting married… I could go on and on but instead I’ll have to take a look at a handful of their photos and you can see for yourself…

Wedding at Canvas Event Space in Sodo, Seattle, WA

Wedding Photography by Joanna Monger

I loved spending time with Jessica and Pete at their amazing wedding last weekend in a really cool urban venue in Sodo in Seattle called Canvas Event Space. I love how they transformed the space to make it so unique and completely them! I see now why the venue owners called it Canvas, it really is a blank canvas on which to create your own really cool event. The very talented florists went to town decorating the venue and used lots of vines and greenery to really soften the urban feel. Who here has read the book “Where the Wild Things Are” by Maurice Sendak?  It reminded me of that – ha ha.

Pete and Jess are literally THE most relaxed bride and groom ever. Erika the planner coordinated an amazing team of vendors who guaranteed their special day one was for the books. Some of my personal favorite details were the tables decorated beautifully with ferns and gorgeous floral arrangements. The updated twist on the corsages the ladies wore – the flowers attached to the gold cuffs… check out the photos below. And the fact that Jess and her girls, including Grandma, changed into cute sparkly Kate Spade sneakers for the dancing!

I hope you enjoy looking at a handful of photos from their urban Seattle wedding and feel free to leave the happy couple a note in the comments below. I am sure they’d love to hear from you.

Snohomish Engagement Photos on Sultan River – Kaitlan & Matt

Photos by Joanna Monger Photographer – Seattle & Snohomish Wedding Photographer

I enjoyed spending the evening with Kaitlan and Matt for their engagement shoot a week or so ago. These two love to laugh and clearly have a great time together, they are a lot of fun to be around. We made their engagement photos at the bottom of my property out in Sultan on the river. It almost felt like fall with a little change in the color of the leaves and the slight chill in the air as soon as the sun went below the trees.

These two love birds are getting married next year at Hidden Meadows in Snohomish, WA which is a great venue and I am very excited for them 🙂 I hope you enjoy looking at a handful of their engagement photos. Feel free to leave them a note in the comments below, I am sure they would love to read your well wishes.

Congratulations Kaitlan and Matt!!!!

Snohomish Wedding Guild Meeting at Olympic View Estates, Lake Stevens, WA

Olympic View Estates Wedding Venue in lake Stevens near Snohomish, WApinimage

One of my favorite parts about being in the wedding industry is working alongside great professionals who all contribute their special talents to make wedding days go by smoothly.  Every other month I get together with some of my wedding industry friends at the Snohomish Wedding Guild meetings where we chat, we eat great food and talk shop. If you know anything about me you know that I love to talk about weddings and eat good food so it’s always a fun evening for me! This month’s meeting was held at Olympic View Estates in Lake Stevens and yours truly was in charge of the photography for the evening. I thought I’d share with you a few photos in case you are interested.

It was my first time at Olympic View Estates and I wasn’t all that sure what to expect as I drove through Lake Stevens, then as I pulled into their venue BAM there it was with it’s beautiful views over the valley. Trent and Pam are the owners of this relatively new venue and their fun and bubbly dispositions are just what you need to thrive (and survive) in the wedding industry 🙂 Jennifer from JDW Industries was the planner for the evening and pulled together a beautifully classy meeting with soft pale greens and whites being the color palette. Candi and Eli provided the yard games from their new lawn games rental company which we had fun with.The food was provided by one of my favorite caterers in the area – 12 Basket Catering. Great great food, thank you for feeding us so well Jaffrey and team! The flower arrangements were designed by Tiffany with Flowers by Tiffany and were beautiful as always. (I just published another blog post earlier today with a link to a wedding Tiffany and I did together so if you want to check that out you can here) There is no party without some beverages adult and otherwise and Janet and her team at Pour Girls served with a smile as they always do. I love listening to live music and Ian Skan…. serenaded us with his beautiful music all evening. You should check out his music he’s really good! Lastly Hey Sweets provided us all with deserts which were just delightful. Their lava cakes are just pure perfection. I don’t think you can beat the chocolate raspberry ones. I’ve been trying to eat much more healthy recently but if I am going to break my streak it’s going to be with one (or two) of these yummy cakes. I may or may not have one sitting right in front of me right now as I type, it’s about to be gobbled up and chased with a good old cup of English tea. Yes!!
