This fashion forward (+ insanely gorgeous) couple is Bryn & Shafin. As luck (or fate!) would have it, these two were paired up to complete a project together at work. When they were finished, Shafin worked up the nerve to ask Bryn out! I'd say he's pretty glad he did.
These two got lucky yet again when the weather was picture perfect on their wedding day, which was held in late December... in Seattle. I mean, come on... that never happens!
They had their first look at the Four Seasons before heading to the ceremony, which was held at the Seattle Jamatkhana in Kirkland (Shafin's parents' mosque). Not the worst place for a photo shoot by the lovely and talented Laura Marchbanks. Check out that view!
The couple changed out of their traditional clothing after the ceremony and into more formal wear for their reception. And, man, they did not disappoint! Bryn's dress & jewelry were absolutely to die for! So many beautiful details that I couldn't stop staring at her. Plus, she's not bad to look at herself, am I right?!
Let's just say that Bryn has met her fashionista match in the very dashing Shafin. I mean, look at him! He wore a navy velvet tux jacket made by none other than Tom Ford. This has to be my absolute favorite groom's look of all time. Swoon!
Now that they were dressed for the part, it was time to party! Bryn and Shafin wanted to incorporate a lot of bright colors in this celebration, and a lot of gold! I think we accomplished this with our choice of gold chivari chairs and champagne shantung linens from Pedersens Rentals, and the beautiful custom stationary by Chic Ink and Red Sparrow Design throughout WithinSodo, their reception venue. We finished off this dreamy look with fern foliage table runners and a ton of candles.
Post cocktail hour, the couple participated in their final wedding tradition, the Clay Pot ceremony, before guests sat down to a delicious plated dinner from Duos Catering.
For their first dance, Bryn and Shafin recruited a local street performer they had met at Pike's Place to serenade them for their first dance. Totally original, and Dre was a big hit! Then guests were invited to boogie down on the dance floor with DJ Kryspin, who turned the rest of the night into one big dance party.
For dessert, guests enjoyed some baklava- Brynn and Shafin's favorite! Yum!
Thank you Brynn and Shafin for letting me be a part of your big day! It was such a treat!
And thank you to all of the incredible vendors who participated in this beautiful day!
