Real wedding: Vanessa + Scott

Categories   Real Weddings

Dear readers – Heather from One Love Photo passed Vanessa & Scott’s wedding photos our way and we’re so glad to be able to share them with you today.  They got married in Oxbow Park in Seattle and took advantage of the quaint local vendors for fun details and photo ops. Plus, the reception was held in an old brewery, which is as amazing as it sounds. Vanessa did most of the planning, decorating, and flower arranging herself, with help from family and friends as needed (dear old Dad provided the records for the tables – totally cute.)

Bee tee dubs, these two have an adorable love story worthy of a rom com – close friends secretly madly in love for years, while living as ROOMMATES. Right?!  Let’s adore their nuptials together now.

How could you not want to get married underneath a gigantic orange hat?  Cute to the nth degree.

Those sky-high windows are marvelous. Can you believe Vanessa & her friends put those flowers together themselves? A quick trip to the Pike Place market did the trick… so easy and pretty with the balloons!

You know how everyone says pot lucks are impossible? Turns out that’s a lie. Look how incredible everything looks!

Love all the fun and personality, Vanessa & Scott – everything was super gorgeous. May your future bring you nothing but happiness!

Love her dress! Watters is always a good choice. I think it's amazing when brides can gather the troups and hit up the flower market just before the wedding. you would think there would be so much other stuff to do that you wouldn't have time. I am definetly considering taking a trip to the market to make my own centerpieces. xo Kirby

Using balloons as a splash of color is such an easy and fun idea. And weighing them down with records? Yes please!
