This gorgeous wedding, which took place on the Skansonia, a retired ferry boat on Seattle’s Lake Union, was just overflowing with love. I first met Drew and Elise back in Berkeley for their engagement shoot, and I noticed immediately that they are an extremely loving, playful, gentle and heartful match. Their spring wedding day reflected them perfectly — elegant and simple at once, bright and glowy, and bursting with love.
Seattle is a notoriously fickle place for weather, especially in the early spring, and we were unsure about the forecast until hours before the ceremony. In the morning it was cold, windy, and raining. But as soon as I left to see the bride and groom for the first time, the entire city seemed to break through the storm clouds, and we had a perfectly sun-soaked afternoon and evening.
The Skansonia is a beautiful, old ship, loaded with memorabilia and gadgets from its former life. And the ferry itself points directly across Lake Union at the amazing Seattle skyline.
