Samantha & Igor | Westland Distillery Wedding

CiccarelliPhotography_0235

Their day was nothing short of magical, which is exactly how they’d planned it. These two Harry Potter fanatics decided to subtly add little details to show their love of the wizarding world, which was accented perfectly by their choice of venue, Westland Distillery.

Igor was so ecstatic to see his bride for their first look. As she kissed his hands and he stared wide-eyed at her the feelings sunk in that their day had finally arrived. Guests were seated to the Harry Potter theme song and Samantha walked arm in arm with both of her parents down the barrel-filled aisle, laughing as she told guest to be seated (a small detail her brother had forgotten to say). Their love filled the high ceilings and just like the famous great hall they dined with their favorite people, wands at the ready.

Samantha & Igor, your magical day was a complete thrill to capture! You two seemed so grateful and full of celebration for this day and we couldn’t be happier for you both! ~Erik & Marissa

Exciting Announcement…Round 2!

CiccarelliPhotography_0220

Oh boy…or girl, we are so thrilled to announce that our little family will be growing early 2018! Bryce is super pumped (although he doesn’t know it yet) to train another member of our photography team. We have no idea what we’re in for with two little tykes, but we’re certainly excited to find out!

How Bryce probably really feels about all this…

CiccarelliPhotography_0218

Certainly the parents of 1+ kiddos out there can attest to the fact that having your first baby is this tremendous occasion. We felt everything from pure joy to extreme anxiety, not knowing what to expect. This pregnancy has been a totally different experience. There’s the fact that we’re chasing around a toddler and have less time to think about the new little baby we’re growing (honestly we haven’t even talked about names yet!). We’re still pretty tired, haha, since Bryce isn’t the worlds best sleeper (wasn’t that supposed to end after the newborn stage?!?) so we don’t have too much extra brain power to even worry about the things we worried about when we were first pregnant. There’s also this calm that you at least half know what you’re getting into. Of course every pregnancy, birth and baby is different so we’re not super confident we know what’s going to happen, but we’ve at least been there before so there are fewer questions at the doctor’s office, no hospital visit, less frantic google searches about pregnancy symptoms (seriously every symptom is normal or at least has been felt before by some pregnant woman out there, even when it doesn’t seem to be normal).

Although our baby story didn’t begin how we’d planned yet again (does it ever?), we know how many people struggle with infertility problems and we feel lucky to be bringing another being into the world.

Some interesting things we’ve noticed with round #2 that we thought we’d share…

How does this pregnancy compare? It’s 100% completely different. I expected to know how my body would handle a pregnancy, but whoa was I incorrect! Everything I remember from round 1 hasn’t happened this time and many symptoms I read about and felt lucky I never felt are here this round.

How did you find out? We were actually trying to plan around wedding season as crazy as that sounds! We didn’t want to be giving birth during someone’s wedding so we were trying for a winter baby and found out with a test in June that we’d finally become pregnant.

Was it a surprise? Nope, we had been planning on giving Bryce a sibling and feel so lucky that we were able to!

Will you find out the sex? Yes, we’ll know this September so just a month to go until we know! This will help us actually start thinking of names once we know 50% of them are out.

How do you feel? Much better now that we’re in the second trimester! Way less tired and sick (oh first trimester you were no fun).

Any weird cravings? Last time it was tomato soup and peanut butter, but this time I could eat a carb for every meal if I wasn’t so worried about losing all the weight after baby’s arrival!

We are so happy to begin another adventure together, as parents of two and are so thankful to all of you who have supported us with congratulations, advice, and love. ~Erik & Marissa

Bryce is practicing being a big brother already (and Erik trained him to say “big brother” if you ever ask him, it’s pretty cute!) carrying around his baby, taking him for walks in the stroller and playing hi some guitar music.

Jenna & Nate | Discovery Park Engagement

He asked her to go to dinner and she thought nothing of it. Just a night out, a date to enjoy each other’s company. What she didn’t know is that he’d looked at her Pinterest board to see ring styles she adored. He’d even measured the diameter of her rings with a tape measure so that when he went to the jeweler he was fully prepared to order the perfect ring. Even though she’d never mentioned rings and they hadn’t had that talk yet, he took it into his own hands! The ring came and he made a reservation at the same restaurant where they had their very first date. He even requested that they sit at the EXACT same table! How romantic is that? Needless to say, she was totally blown away, surprised and completely happy to say yes.

Jenna & Nate, we just loved meeting you two! Such a natural pair together, let’s do photos every month until the wedding okay? 😉 Tuxedo required though. ~Erik & Marissa

Laura & Matt | Woodmark Hotel Wedding

Since they now live in Texas it was only fitting that they got the most beautiful, sunny day for their Seattle wedding. We’re glad they left the heat down there, but are so grateful they decided to tie the knot up here on the waterfront of the beautiful Woodmark Hotel!

These two have a perfect, complimentary sense of humor (which we think is why they’re just perfect together!). From the Lucky Charms cereal gift for her and the “Shit just got real” card for him to the laughter during their ceremony and stretching before their first dance, these two had an unforgettable day of celebrating. Not to mention the most romantic lift down the aisle!

Congratulations Laura & Matt! We are so happy you found your perfect person and that you had such a fantastically fun day to celebrate the beginning of this chapter together! ~Erik & Marissa

Sherry & Matt | Willows Lodge Wedding

Neither seemed nervous. It was as if they were already married, and this was the celebration bringing together all their family and friends. It made total sense when speeches were given as the couple was showered with love and compliments about how they completed the other. They were basically already fused at the hip, two people so in love. When Sherry & Matt stood to give their own separate speeches they talked about how lucky they each were to find the other and thanked their new in-laws for being part of their new family. So sweet! These two sweethearts were certainly made for each other!

Thank you Sherry & Matt, for allowing us to be part of your day and to capture this celebration! ~Erik & Marissa
