Ben & Emily {happily ever after} | Rose Garden wedding, Seattle ~ Seattle wedding photographer

When I first met Ben and Emily earlier this year, we immediately bonded over a discussion of our favorite strategic boardgames.  If you asked Emily, she booked me because I was “friendly” and “take beautiful pictures”.  If you asked Ben, it’s because I play his favorite character in Battlestar Galactica:P That was a first!  Needless to say, we were a perfect match!  ^_~

I had the honor of photographing their gorgeous fairytale wedding at the Rose Garden just outside the Woodland Park Zoo.  Roses are Emily’s favorite flower, so the Rose Garden was perfect!  From her princess dress to the gorgeous rose-themed decor, everything about this wedding was just magical.  Special thanks to my second shooter Candice Hackett of Ivy & Tweed for capturing some of the beautiful images below.  Here’s a sneak peek of some of my favorites from this memorable day!
