Lauren & Jamie | Green Lake Engagement

She claims he’s not good at keeping secrets, but this one time at least, he nailed it. For her birthday they took a ferry to Brown Island for a weekend getaway. He stashed a very important ring and didn’t tell anyone, just in case. Jamie suggested a walk along the beach and she thought nothing of it, until he dropped to one knee and asked her to be his, forever. Lauren was so shocked at being surprised that she squealed and excitedly said yes, already knowing that he was the one she was meant to be with for the rest of their days.

Less than a month to go you two! So excited to celebrate your wedding day. ~Erik & Marissa

We had a last minute change of location (thanks Adele), but were so grateful to hold the session in Lauren & Jamie’s new home and neighborhood, which made it that much more special.

Kaitlin & Nick | Westland Distillery Wedding

Kaitlin is one of those perfectly happy brides we love! Even an hour into their wedding day she said her cheeks hurt (Nick is the BEST at bringing out her smiles, probably one of the reasons she fell for him!). This bride just couldn’t stop smiling! And they both had a lot to smile about.

Her bridesmaids all showed up in denim shirts (unplanned), she was getting ready right next door to her soon to be husband (Nick had rented out the neighbor’s house), they traveled everywhere on a giant bus with their friends (and a few beverages), she had a beautifully decorated reception at Westland Distillery (thanks to Simply by Tamara Nicole, Smashing Petals & Chalkful), and best of all Kaitlin married the man she wanted to spend the rest of her life with…with these and so many more reasons to be happy, that smile never left Kaitlin’s face (except maybe for a few teary speeches, but those were happy tears).

Congratulations Nick & Kaitlin! We couldn’t be happier for you two, what an amazing wedding day! We wish you two (plus your puppy of course) a lifetime of love, adventure, and plenty of smiles (Kaitlin will make sure of that:) ~Erik & Marissa

Julie & Matt | Lake Sammamish Park

She had noticed him during their work meetings because of his sense of humor and great insight. He noticed her too and began finding excuses to stop by her cubicle. They realized there was a lot in common between the two of them and decided to start spending time together outside of work. Walks led to more adventurous hikes which led to trail runs (and now they run races together!). Julie figured if Matt still found her attractive after seeing her red-faced and sweaty, “he was a keeper!”

Thank you for a wonderful engagement session you two (and for showing us a gorgeous new spot)! We are so excited to see you soon for the big day! ~Erik & Marissa

Maya & Matt | Westin Bellevue Wedding

CiccarelliPhotography_0268

She waited for him in the room with all the women, surrounded by loved ones and friends. They congratulated her and sang songs as she hugged and kissed them warmly. Everyone kept saying words like giving, warm, happy and beautiful to describe Maya. She puts others first and is a friend you can count on, a daughter that makes her parents proud, and a sister that keeps life fun.

He was kept company by the men, telling stories, singing songs, and taking celebratory shots to commemorate this day. Stories of Matt told of his fun college days, how he is a role model for his brothers, and how he won over Maya with his dedication, love, respect and persistence. They sang into Maya’s room, where Matt ceremoniously swept her veil up and over her head. She smiled up at him and he held her hands. Their forever was about to begin.

Maya & Matt thank you so much for being such a lovely couple. We loved celebrating with you and capturing your gorgeous wedding day. Congratulations! ~Erik & Marissa

Anton & Jimmie | Sole Repair Shop Wedding

CiccarelliPhotography_0180

This was the day. The day they’d switch rings, Jimmie’s would go onto Anton’s finger and Anton’s would go onto Jimmie’s finger, to signify their marriage, love and everlasting commitment to one another.

As they walked from their home through the park to Sole Repair, where the festivities would be held, they told us their fingers felt empty without those rings (they had been wearing them since their engagement). But they had each other, and walked hand in hand, stopping here and there for photos, being congratulated by a passerby and enjoying this moment of anticipation. Friends and family watched as they slid each other’s rings onto their fingers, promised to be one another’s smizmar (meaning: one true love), and sealed the deal with a kiss plus a few happy tears.

Congratulations Anton & Jimmie! We are so happy for you two and can’t thank you enough for allowing us to capture all the love on your wedding day. ~Erik & Marissa
