A New Year, and new brand. Welcome to the new S & L Creative website, we hope you’ll take a look around and enjoy!
Who doesn’t love a wedding in San Juan Islands? We enjoy the extended road trips for weddings, even it it’s just for a day or two. Our last wedding of 2016 took place at the beautiful Roche Harbor Resort.
It was our first time actually on this island, which is hard to believe after 17 years of weddings. While November weather can be challenging, the couple really wanted an outdoor ceremony.. Even though it was cold and windy, the rain held off and a beautiful outdoor ceremony was on! We had a great time working with Amanda and Daniel, their family and friends are amazing, and wish them the best.
It was a great way to end a busy photography year; a fantastic location, great clients and even a sunny outdoor November wedding!
We met Gina and Ben at the Seattle Wedding Show, and found out right away their wedding was going to be a unique event. Both of their families have spent many summers over in the Lake Chelan area, so this was an easy decision to have the wedding there.
Greens Landing and Events was the perfect location for them, nestled in an apple orchard along the banks of Lake Chelan. Ben is an avid brew master, where he provided a few home brews for the reception, in addition they had some delicious pies from a local Manson bakery. It was a casual, fun filled day, during the end of the night, a few of the bridal party decided to jump off the diving boards into Lake Chelan.
Abhishek and Vetri had a three day wedding event weekend. It started Friday evening, where we met up with everyone on Lake Union for an Argosy Dinner cruise, where we were treated to an abundance of Indian food from one of their favorite local restaurant. The party kept going all night, even after we had docked.
The next afternoon, we met up with them at Madrona Beach park for a BBQ, with lots of fun and games, henna tattoos, and the night culminated with a Chinese lantern launch, where we captured video of this spectacular send off. They were commemorating the loss of friends and family members, while writing spiritual message on the lanterns prior to launching into the skies above.
Sunday was the formal wedding day and reception. We met up with them at Stimpson Green Mansion on Capitol Hill in Seattle, Washington. The ceremony was outside in the courtyard, while the reception was held inside the mansion. It was so fun to witness the love and support given by both of their families, we were honored to be a part of the wedding weekend celebration!
I first met up with Kim and Linda at their Seattle home, while finishing up their preparation and getting ready for their event. We were picked up by a lovely vintage British Motor Coach and visited a few spots on Alki and West Seattle before heading to the Mercer Island Community Center for their ceremony and reception. It was a small intimate ceremony with close family, friends in attendance, making this a heartfelt evening. I was honored to be a part of capturing their wedding day celebration.
