Drew and Jennie: Bethany Community Church and the Seattle Aquarium – Seattle, WA

A few weeks ago I had a fabulous day photographing Drew and Jennie’s wedding.  I was a little nervous about their wedding for a few reasons.  They had by far the biggest bridal party I had ever photographed.  Also, the reception was at the Seattle Aquarium which was a new space for me.  I met Jennie at the Renaissance Hotel and my second shooter Jeramie went off to meet the guys.  We then all met up at the Sculpture Park for photos.  The bridal party was so great.  Even though there were a ton of them, they were super easy to work with!  It was actually much easier than I had anticipated. After their lovely ceremony, we all climbed aboard a Ride the Duck.  We had a tour of the city and floated on the water on the way over to the Aquarium.  Drew and Jennie had made a mixed CD of all their favorite music so everyone was dancing and singing.  I don’t think I’ve ever had more fun riding to a reception!  It was a great night at the aquarium with lots of dancing.   I had a great time capturing all the crazy dancing.  Thanks SO much to Jeramie Shoda for second shooting with me.  He was able to get tons of great photos of the guys getting ready and lots of great dancing photos! Here are a few of my favorites from the day.
