Spring weddings are tricky in Seattle, especially in the dreadfully rainy month of April. Even if it doesn’t rain, you’re still looking at a huge chance of it being overcast, which makes for a gloomy day (and video). This is what drives many in the Pacific Northwest to book weddings throughout May and the end of Summer, but that shouldn’t stop you from getting married earlier in the year.
Bride and groom Rachel and Jon decided to roll the dice and get married on April 22. Their prayers paid off; the wedding day was blessed with sunshine and happiness. Getting ready early in the day, it’s clear that purple is the way to go. Everything from the ties, to the flowers, to disco lights at the reception was a different shade of purple. The photo shoot, especially down on the docks with the sun glittering through the clouds in the distance, was breathtaking and remains some of our favorite work.
After mistakenly breaking a necklace given by Jon (yes, we got that on camera, Rachel) and a loving chest bump with her dad, the bride met her fiance on the balcony of the house for their passionate first look. Emerging through the double doors, the two share a long kiss as the groom sees his future wife in her wedding dress with a bouquet of cascading orchids.
The wedding, held at the Landing in Tyee, was classy and gorgeously planned. The gray suit with purple tie worn by the groom added a sophisticated flair to the event, while the altar itself was a sight to behold. As family filed in, the entire room was abuzz with excitement . The traditional ceremony, with prayers and heartfelt vows that bring tears to the eyes, was a personal and spiritual event for the the two as they made the promise to devote their entire lives to each other and God. Though, we think Jon puts it best when he promises to, “laugh at her jokes, even when she’s not funny.” Finished off with yet another passion-filled kiss, they walked back down the aisle as husband and wife, while also sneaking in another kiss just for show.
We see a lot of different cakes at a lot of different weddings, but the brilliant, pure white, four-tiered cake with a frosted flower draping down its entirety at the Pearman wedding--well, it just takes the cake. The dancing and celebration to follow featured quirky moves, good music, and the sort of bliss that comes from weddings. The night ended with Jon carrying Rachel through a sparkler send off towards a life of happiness together.
The Pearman’s wedding was a joyous celebration that we were honored to do the video for, and we hope that you found something to appreciate on their wedding day! Don’t let the potential for rain scare you for your wedding day, if you live in the Pacific Northwest you just know it comes with the territory, but even if there’s a cloud here or there--it’s still home, right? Sound off below and let us know your favorite moment from their wedding video!
