Bethany and Will are unquestionably one of my favorite couple of all time. I actually met them through the referral of Sara and Graeme who are also my favorite. We first met each other at the Staples which is where the reception venue was going to be for a quick walk through. After that Sara and Graeme actually came over because they were meeting for dinner. They cordially invited me to join. How could I say no for an occasion to actually hanging out with my clients, especially two couples I have and will be working with! It was a pleasant time.
Will told me it was gonna be a really casual wedding. And he wasn't kidding when he said that. The ceremony was right by the water at the pier in West Seattle. There's no seats at the ceremony. Everybody was standing and surrounding the couple. And there was no sit down dinner at the reception either. We had pizza and beer. Although it wasn't formal, it was definitely one of the most emotional weddings I have ever participated in. When I brought Will to meet Bethany for first look. He bursted into tears immediately. He couldn't believe how beautiful she was. I shouldn't be surprised though. Because when I asked him before if he's gonna cray when he sees her. "Oh yeah I'll be crying like there's no tomorrow." So when you thought his tears would run out since he already saw her. But no. He started sobbing again at the ceremony when Bethany walked in the isle with her dad. And everybody was just tearing the whole time. A lot of touching moments. A lot of stories were shared. And I managed to snap a picture of them with this Bethany's veil in front of the lens so exquisitely right afterward before they started crying again. I haven't done a lot of veil shots, but this is for sure my favorite.
