Yachty by Nature!

I've been lucky enough to know and work with the gorgeous bride for over six years! Jenn Repp is a crazy great photographer and we've been 'working' weddings together since 2008! She is a preferred vendor of mine and I'm very happy to say that the feeling is mutual! When she asked me to be her day of coordinator I was super pumped and extremely flattered!
When she described her fiance Zak to me she lit up like a Christmas tree! She was literally giddy when she told me the story of how they met and have spent the past few years together. Very cute!!
The couple got married at my FAVORITE venue, Roche Harbor Resort and the cherry on top, Jenny Jimenez photographed the day. You know you are an amazing photographer when another photographer hires you for her wedding!!
Here are a few of my favorite detail shots. Jenn & Zak added such charming touches to their big day. It was fun to watch guests discover all of the unique touches they added. From her dress hanger, to the inscription inside his suit vest to the custom cuff links he wore. Everything was just very thoughtful and their June day turned out beautiful!
I know, she is looks stunning!! I cried when I saw her, for realsies. JennyJ has a blackmail photo of me open mouth, teary eyed. Not a good look on me. She on the other hand, was perfection!
Get ready to roll your eyes. Jenn made her invitations. I know! She is crazy talented!! She also created their seating chart turned guest book out of a map of the San Juan islands which now hangs in their home.
The Sunken Garden was the perfect sunny spot for their ceremony! Jenn wrote on their chalkboard, "pick a seat, not a side" to convey open seating. Love it!!
They carried the San Juan 'theme' through to the reception as each table name was the name of an island. Guests water glasses also served as favors. They were frosted with their anchor logo and initials.
Their dessert bar was beyond! They had cheesecakes, cupcakes and cookies - oh my! Family photos hung from the fire place which made for a great gathering spot for guests.

Once the sun started to go down a fire was started on the patio. A perfect get away for guests who needed a break from the rock'n dance floor. Jenn's mom helped her sew the blue, gold and white bunting that was hung - a perfect touch!
Thank you SO MUCH to Jenn & Zak for letting me be a part of their AMAZING wedding day! You two are awesomesauce!!

Maria & Jeremy's Wedding Bash!

When meeting with Maria and Jeremy they made their wedding vision very clear - they were going to have a good time party!! And boy howdy, did they! I had known Maria & Jeremy both through mutual friends and neighbors for a few years and they are SO great with each other! They laugh and play and are just fun to watch. Their wedding day was filled with flirty glances, a ton of hugs, even more kisses and a few swing your feet above your had dance moves!! They embraced the day with their guests, but more importantly you could tell they relished the day with each other!
Family was also a huge part of their day. Maria was born in Russia and she incorporated aspects of the Russian culture. Infused vodka favors anyone!? She even found vodka bottles that donned her name in Russian and placed them at her parents and grandparents tables. And her grandfather toasted their marriage with the cutest speech!  Jeremy's mom walked him down the aisle, his brother was his best man and his nephew was the most adorable and show stealing ring bearer ever! One super fun family tradition, his mom and aunts made up and SANG a song about Maria and Jeremy to a Beatles tune after dinner - so fun!
Here are a few of my favorite shots from their August wedding from Jeramie from SHODA LOVE  Photography!  Check out more great photos on my Clutch Events Facebook page!

Her dress was GORGEOUS! Each layer of tulle and lace floated as she walked - I couldn't get enough! And I LOVE this earring shot pinned to the Seattle map, such a unique picture!

Aaand here is the lovely couple! So dam adorable!! Their 1st look was down at South Lake Union and the weather was perfect!!  

The Rose Garden at the Zoo was a perfect backdrop for their ceremony! Ok, can you not feel the excitement after they were pronounced man and wife!?
Pun intended! Their adorable rabbit cake toppers is for their last name, 'Hare'. How cute! And a shout out to Judy Tallant of Tallant House. Jeremy and Maria consider themselves tiramisu connoisseurs and after scowering the city for the best tiramisu they selected her homemade treat!

Maria and Jeremy each made their own flavor of infused vodka before the wedding! Mini corked bottles acted as a favor and seat assignment for their guests.

The couple did a choreographed first dance and ended the traditions with a hora!! Seriously, her dress! So gorgeous!


A huge thank you to Maria and Jeremy for letting me be a part of your wedding!! You guys are the best!!
