Christa and Justin came to Seattle for a destination wedding, leaving their two small sons back in Camdenton, Missouri. They booked the beautiful and zen-like Treehouse Point for their ceremony and intimate champagne toast, followed by photographs around the location and at the nearby Snoqualmie Falls.
Justin is a direct descendant of William Wallace--yes, THAT William Wallace--and so wore the traditional tartan and formal clothing of Clan Wallace, imported straight from the Scottish Highlands. His details were absolutely stunning. Christa's gorgeous antique lace gown perfectly complemented Justin's kilt, and she wove his clan colors into her own look by adding burgundy flowers to her hair and bouquet, along with lovely scarlet ribbons.
This wedding is special for many reasons, but one of the most important (to us, anyway!) is that Kevin and I were able to participate as much more than photographers. I was honored to help Christa make her headpiece and bouquet the day before, as well as help her with her dress and accessories. We had a great time choosing her flowers at Pike's Place Market (along with doughnuts and coffee, of course). Kevin spent some time with Justin on the morning of the wedding choosing champagne and cake for later, and then helped outfit him before the ceremony. We both had the very great honor of signing their marriage license as witnesses.
Overall, it was a beautiful couple of days with two wonderful people we had the best time with. Congratulations you two!
