A big thank you to all the wonderful vendors who participated in this great styled wedding shoot in Seattle. This is part 1 of a 3 part blog post set, this one is featuring the lovely model Rachel.

We originally started the shoot in North Bend by Rattlesnake Lake, but a crazy (and I mean CRAZY) rain storm came in with thunder, lightning and the full works. We zoomed back west 40 miles or so in time to make the golden hour at Lincoln Park. Luckily it was a gorgeous evening and it turned out swimmingly!

The dress Rachel is wearing is from Calla Bridal – a great Seattle based bridal boutique. The designer is Martina Liana and it is style 541. It is a beautiful vintage style chantilly lace dress with tulle and a chiffon skirt. The pretty crystal sash really ties together this gorgeous gown. As a side note I just LOVE how lace photographs 🙂

Don’t you love her hair?! Dawn from Seattle Bride Hair did a fantastic job. She created a pretty halo braid adorned with babies breath flowers which perfectly matched the feel of the shoot.

As for the flowers, Rachel’s bouquet was created with love by Gina From the Ground Up Floral. It is a classic rounded hand-tied bouquet with peonies and anemones with touches of dusty miller and camellia foliage. All the flowers were from either Gina’s cutting garden or from local farmers. <I love that!!

I hope you enjoy a selection of the photographs from a really fun evening.
