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!!
