Last weekend I made my pilgrimage to Seattle for more wedding activities and my first winter wedding extravaganza! There is something fresh and fun and youthful about spring and summer weddings – flowers and green grass and sunshine and spring dresses and rosy cheeks and tan lines. But there is something absolutely magical about a winter/Christmas-time wedding – ornaments and twinkle lights, mistletoe, cranberries, holly, an abundance of candles, and an overwhelming amount of romantic lighting. Kathleen’s wedding was a great day. Winter magic included.
These photos are a combination of Kamel, Claire, and my phone-photos. Not professional grade but still amazingly fun. And wow the red, so much red! And of course I couldn’t post without a little snippet of the amazing boob whisperer. The greatest magically wedding and/or formal dress fairy godmother there ever was.
I stayed in bare feet as much as possible, and everybody was a trooper with the chilly weather. My favorite parts of being in a wedding is ALWAYS the getting ready/champagne pre-ceremony. Quality lady time cannot be beat. And Kathleen’s dress was to die for, seeing her sister tie up the ribbons in the back – breath taking. It looked like it was custom made for her body.
Yes I wore real person peep-toe T-strap patent leather shoes. I even put little gel cushions on the balls of my feet. But after standing in them for a good 20-30 minutes, I could barely walk. Immediately after the ceremony I had Kamel whip those puppies off of me and spent the entire reception gleefully in bare feet.
That dress, Miss Kathleen. I DIE.
There was a very convenient bench just to the left of the dance floor. I sat there often. Chair dancing – way underrated.
Such a good picture of Kamel and Kathleen I can’t even handle it. Cannot.
And then of course I have to end with the greatest photo of Kamel ever taken…
It was just that kind of night. And now I will attempt to sleep for 1000 years to make up for all of the attempted pregnant dancing and staying up too late. Or ya know… I’ll just sleep my usual amount and drag myself to work this AM like everyone else. Sigh.
Yay Kathleen and Devin are married!!! And it was an amazing party. Hip-hip Hooray!
