Seattle Wedding Photo Collection by Michèle Waite Photography – Amy and Andrés

July 13, 2011 | christy

Couple Amy and Andrés recently hosted a beautiful and personal wedding in Seattle, and chose top Pacific Northwest wedding photographer Michèle Waite to capture their day. We fell in love with these images as soon as we saw them, and are lucky enough to get to share them with you today, along with some words from the beautiful bride about how their wedding day came to be…

“We got married in Seattle on April 16, 2011, exactly 10 months from the day that Andrés proposed in Jamaica. For the ceremony, we chose Holy Names Academy chapel, which is the location I have wanted to use for my wedding since I attended high school there. Holy Names is a private, Catholic, all-girls college prep school located on Capitol Hill in Seattle and the current location was built in 1908 (the chapel was completed in 1925). For the reception, we chose Pravda, which is a 5,000 square foot loft-style space also on Capitol Hill. We chose Pravda because it is a light, open, beautiful space with hardwood floors, high ceilings and a ton of light.”

“We like to have fun and we like to laugh, and family is very important to both of us so we kept those elements in mind when we planned the wedding. We chose bright, playful wedding colors like fuchsia and orange, and incorporated those colors in the flowers, invitations, cake, event décor even in the mango margaritas we served during our cocktail hour. Andrés parents and family are originally from Mexico, so we also wanted to bring in parts of the Mexican culture. Our invitations and ceremony programs were bilingual, we had a Mariachi band play during dinner and we served margaritas, ceviche before dinner and churros later in the evening. We also danced to Spanish music most of the evening. Once the dancing began, our 150 guests were treated to a laser light show above the dance floor!”

“What we loved most about our wedding day was getting to share our special day surrounded by so many great family and friends. Our parents are both still very happily married after 37 and 42 years of marriage, and have set great examples for us of what you need to do to sustain a loving, lasting marriage. Their excitement and participation in our planning and our wedding day really made the event even more meaningful for us. Weve been together almost 4 years and are looking forward to celebrating many anniversaries for years to come!”
