We've had so many wonderful weddings to show lately, that we decided to make this week Real Weddings Week! Every day here on What Junebug Loves we'll be showing off a fantastic real wedding, sure to spark lots of inspirational ideas of your own, so stay tuned! Today we're starting with the amazing fall Seattle wedding of couple Eun and Isaac, photographed by the one and only Jenny J. Enjoy!
The Goals: Eun and Isaac invited 270 guests to join them at the Four Seasons Hotel in Downtown Seattle
for their elegant fall wedding and although not everyone knew each other, they hoped that their friends and family would mingle, dance and have an amazing time celebrationg together. Photographer Jenny Jiminez set up a photo booth that really broke the ice for people, and it was just one of the reasons that Eun and Isaac felt that working with Jenny was the best decision they made for their wedding. “Your wedding day goes by so fast, you hardly remember it. Jenny captured every fun, genuine and emotional moment and didn't make us feel unnatural or staged while she was taking our pictures. The photos are all we have for our memories from our wedding, so definitely going with the BEST quality photographer is the best decision we made for our wedding. We couldn't ask for more!”
The Design: The Four Seasons provided a backdrop with the
warm, earthy, fall tones of ivory, brown, and champagne that Eun and Isaac wanted to use throughout the wedding. Invitations by Sarah McNally of Constellation & Co. featured more of the
couple’s fall-inspired vision with an ornate tree surrounded by leaves
blowing in the wind. To add sweetness, an extraordinarily beautiful floral wedding cake from the Four Seasons was made of white cake with strawberry filling, and the wedding favors were mini jars of honey.
The Look: Eun had always imagined her dream dress
would be elegant and timeless. The gown she from Marisa Bridals, a trumpet-style dress graced with a
sweetheart neckline and delicate lace details, had both “the elegance factor
and also the fun factor” that she hoped for. The wedding
party's look was elegant and chic with the bridesmaids wearing dresses from I do Bridal in Seattle and the groom and groomsmen in
suits from The Tux Shop in Lynwood.
The Moments: During their traditional Christian ceremony, officiated by Eun's childhood and college pastor,
the bride and groom shared a sentimental moment when they gave thanks to and exchanged hugs with their
parents. “Isaac and I became very emotional in that split moment, because we
were looking back over the years and thinking about everything they had done
The reception that followed took on a fun, lighthearted feel and
the party continued long into the night. Says Eun, “There was nonstop dancing! Family friends and guests danced so
much that I had to take a break and eventually take my shoes off and wear
Now that sounds like the perfect way to celebrate!
