Abigail & Shaun are one of those couples that can’t stop smiling and make everyone else around them feel so full of joy. Their day was perfect. Their venue, Within Sodo, was amazing. Plus we ended up with a sunny, beautiful day in Seattle in January (miracles do happen). Abigail and Shaun knew they wanted a first look, which we absolutely love. As Abigail approached Shaun we’re both pretty sure we saw their smiles go ear to ear. Their intimate moment allowed Abigail to bask in all her glory and Shaun was able to feast his eyes on his soon to be bride. Kissing, hugging, laughing and taking in the moment was all they wanted.
Within Sodo was picture perfect. It’s simplicity and intimate feeling filled the air with love. When it was time for the ceremony Abigail calmly took her father’s arm. Friends and family stood as Abigail and her father entered the room and walked down the aisle. Her father, trying his hardest not to cry, kept his eyes lifted and arm solid, but try as he might the immensity of the day overcame him. Tears of joy filled the room. Let’s just say theres a 100% success rate of getting goose bumps when you witness the faces on the bride and groom’s parents at this moment.
The sweetness of these two really showed while they laughed, cried, and pronounced their love for each other during their vows. When it was time to announce the couple Shaun grabbed his new wife, kissed her with the love and passion of a new husband, and raised their hands in a cheer. Overcome with happiness and full of love the couple exited and were greeted with hugs and congratulations from all of their guests. This really was a day of celebration and love.
Thank you, Abigail & Shaun, for letting us be a part of it all. ~Erik & Marissa
Could a bride be any more lovely?
Abigail told us that although she really wanted to get a plaid wedding dress, her family and friends advised against it so she settled for a photo in one of Shaun’s flannel shirts.
After their ceremony, Abigail & Shaun were able to take a few more photos and have a little time alone to soak in the moment before entering their reception.
Congratulations Abigail & Shaun! We wish you all the best as you embark on this new journey together. ~ Erik & Marissa
