Molly & Taylor | Semiahmoo Wedding

CiccarelliPhotography_1322

They are meant to be together. That was the sentiment all day long at Molly & Taylor’s wedding. Speeches, the bridesmaids, and close family members all gushed about how these two were the perfect match and how each of them so lovingly embraced the other’s friends and belonged in the other’s family already.

Their first meet-up was summer camp in 7th grade. Adorable or what? They began dating after college and the most romantic proposal took place in Thailand, much to Molly’s complete surprise!

On their wedding day it was no surprise to Molly that Taylor shed a few tears. They were both showered in love and special Jewish traditions as this day of celebration unfolded. It all ended with the entire guest list on the dance floor, having a blast, just as Molly & Taylor had dreamed of.

Molly & Taylor you two really do make the perfect couple. We wish you a lifetime of more dancing, lots of travel, and unforgettable moments together. ~Erik & Marissa

Julia & Alain | St. James & Stimson Green Mansion Wedding

She first noticed him in English class at UW because he was cute AND smart, the perfect combo. It was a super small group of students and the two began walking together from class. Slowly they began getting to know one another, spending time outside of their English class even. Julia claims she made the first move, but regardless of who started it, there is no doubt these two were meant to be together.

Their friends and family showered them with words of praise about the strength of their relationship and how Alain & Julia already seemed like an old married couple, in the best way possible. The toasts were not only full of love for these two, but littered with funny stories that had the entire mansion full of guests laughing out loud. We can always tell when a couple is genuinely wonderful by the people they surround themselves with and these two were non-stopped loved on and congratulated by sweet people all night long.

Congrats Julia & Alain, we loved getting to know you two and spend this day documenting your story! ~Erik & Marissa

Starks Family | Carkeek Park

Here’s the most awesome thing about our job…we get to stay in touch with our people for years to come! We’ve seen puppies brought home, babies born, homes purchased, anniversaries, and kids grow year after year.

We first met Will & Sara many years ago when they were newly engaged. As huge Husky fans we met on the waterfront with a view of the stadium to capture some candids before documenting their wedding the next year. Seeing their pup for the first time during a maternity session as they were excitedly awaiting the newest addition to their family was super cute. And now Henry, what can we say. Have you seen a more smiley, cute 6 month old? What a doll and so loved by his parents. He hardly stopped smiling the entire shoot, which reminded us of how smiley Sara & Will were during their first session with us all those years ago. Henry definitely inherited his happy demeanor from mom and dad!

Will & Sara, thanks for letting us document yet another big moment of your lives. Henry is so darn happy and you all make the sweetest family unit. Honored to be a part of it all. ~Erik & Marissa

Elisabeth & Ashton | Gasworks Park and Lake Union Cafe Wedding

CiccarelliPhotography_1223

The day started full of family and friends all gathered together in one giant house. Think the beginning scene of Home Alone, but on a wedding day with way more fun, more people, and a whole lot of happy. On the third floor sat Elisabeth, relaxing calmly with a few bridesmaids and groomsmen, getting beautified (which is pretty much unnecessary since she’s a natural beauty) and laughing with her sister. A few floors below a groomsmen sat playing the piano as Ashton prepped for the day with some of his best friends, laughing at how Elisabeth would give him heck for making them all wear suspenders with belts.

Flash ahead to a beautiful bride crossing the street to stand back to back with her handsome groom, counting to three, then jumping to meet one another in such a fun first look. The day continued much the same, with a ton of goofiness (family photos with silly faces was a must), a lot of fun (these two were all smiles, all day as they laughed, joked, danced, and had the best time), and a whole lot of love (talk about a perfect match). It’s so obvious why they had such lovely friends and family joining them on their big day, giving speeches with the kindest words and surprising them with a special song. They’ve touched the lives of many and will now continue to do so as a team.

Thank you for letting us join in on this super fun day Elisabeth & Ashton! We loved every single minute. ~Erik & Marissa

Ashley & Jeff | Discovery Park Engagement & Family

She had just graduated and moved to Alaska for her very first job. Part of the gig was going to the docks, which is when she spied this handsome guy throwing lines to tie up their boat. That cute guy, Jeff, was working there as an engineer and they happened to have a mutual friend who happily introduced them. As the season grew to a close they knew there was something special between them so she agreed to go with him to Portland, the place where their love story really grew!

These two are so giddily in love and even better they have the cutest son, Colin, who was a trooper and slept through half our session then decided to join us for some fun on the beach. Thanks for the sweetest session Ashley, Jeff & Colin! We cannot wait for all the festivities next year! ~Erik & Marissa
