The day started out just right. When I knocked on the door of the Four Seasons suite that overlooked the Ferris Wheel in downtown Seattle, I immediately heard laughter from behind the door. I walked in to find a relaxed and smiling bride with three of her best girlfriends. This is how every wedding day should begin. This relaxed and high-spirited vibe lasted all through the day! Ben + Kimly are one of those couples that brighten a room!
Their wedding celebration took place at Within Sodo in Seattle. This urban industrial-chic space was the perfect backdrop for their city wedding. And when you combined the industrial backdrop with the elegant and soft neutral tones of their color palette, styled by the talented Sarah of EVENTful Moments, this wedding was fit for a magazine. And let’s not forget, everyone has been swooning, not only over Kimly’s stunning wedding gown, but also for her bridesmaids’ blush sparkly full-length gowns that made every girl there wish they would have chosen those dresses for their own weddings! Clapping and cheers erupted in Within Sodo’s urban rooftop garden as Kimly + Ben shared their first kiss as husband and wife in front of their close family and friends!
Kimly + Ben, thank you. Thank you so much for inviting me to come celebrate with you and treating me like family. When you came out to give ME such an intentional and thoughtful gift on YOUR wedding night, it was such a clear picture of the type of couple you are. You have been so easy-going, thoughtful and kind throughout this whole process and I have truly enjoyed your friendship! I hope your honeymoon was a trip you’ll never forget and that you are easing into this beautiful journey of marriage!! Congrats and I hope you enjoy (as much as I did!) reliving a glimpse of such an incredible day!
Kimly + Ben chose to do their first look in Post Alley downtown Seattle. This part of the day is always a favorite!
This crew had “Blue Steel” down. (Zoolander, anyone?)
Sarah and the team at Within Sodo… you guys knocked it out the park!! It looked absolutely gorgeous!!
Ben’s choice for his groom’s cake – Twinkies! Yup. It was amazing.
Kimly + Ben stole a few moments alone together as husband and wife before the party kicked off.
One of my favorites from the Photo Booth!
