Seattle Ballroom Wedding

Editing down the number of images for today’s wedding was no small task, let me tell you. Every single image from Andria Lindquist is such a beautiful sight to see! Blakeley and Matt married in Seattle’s The Arctic Club, which is a showstopper of a venue if I’ve ever seen one. Just wait until you see the ballroom for their reception space!

From the bride, Blakely: My inspiration was from my love and appreciation of classy, regal, timeless elegance of the 1920’s. However, I wanted to spice it up with the excitement of glamorous sequins and beading, giving the regal theme some personality and fun.

My favorite moment of the entire day was peaking into the ceremony room with my future husband once it had been completely finished. We were both completely awe struck and overtook with tears. We couldn’t speak; we just looked at each other with our hearts full and soaking wet faces.

Any advice to future brides planning their weddings now? Whenever a decision comes up, just go with your gut feeling and then stick with it and feel great about it. It’s not about how others would do it, or what other people think, it’s YOUR day and YOU should enjoy it. I believe most of the reason I enjoyed the process so much was because I was excited about each decision I made, and then I stuck with it so my stress level was usually low.

Boise Botanical Gardens Wedding

Garden Weddings

This Idaho wedding shot by Andria Lindquist is that of a couple with two main priorities: comfort and fun. Isn’t that how it should always be? We love the mix of having a ceremony in a garden setting then moving to a reception in an industrial building!

From the bride, Kristin: The majority of our relationship has evolved through shared experiences and memories of being outdoors; from camping trips into the Sawtooth Mountains of Central Idaho to a surprise proposal while hiking the Na’Pali coast of Kauai. In this light, we realized early on that an outdoor ceremony would be perfect for us. The Botanical Gardens stole our heart from the first visit. It offered an intimate, natural setting and had just the right mix of qualities we were looking for.

Together, we decided what was important to us and weren’t afraid to break away from tradition. We wanted every aspect of our wedding to be personal and a reflection of our relationship. During the planning process, we went through the details of the wedding ceremony together and tailored them around things that were significant about our relationship. It was more important for us to involve the people and things that have touched our lives than to conform to conventional standards. We dressed our Miniature Schnauzer, who we absolutely adore, in a bow tie and he accompanied the ring bearer and flower girl down the aisle. We had close friends perform the music for the ceremony, which included the bridal processional, an original acoustic composition of Coldplay’s “The Scientist” instead of the customary “Bridal March.” For an officiant, we had one of Blake’s friends from grade-school perform a ceremony that we all prepared together. The day was pulled together with the help and support of friends and family. Ultimately, it was very intimate and incredibly special to both of us. It was a perfect representation of who we are together and a reminder of how far we’ve come.

Although the entire day was absolutely amazing, there is one particular moment that will hold an extra special place in our hearts forever. Shortly after the ceremony, we managed to sneak away with our photographer to capture a few more pictures as the sun started setting and the lighting was in its prime. As the photo session began to wrap up, my anxiety started to build. I knew we were headed strait to the reception, and shortly after we rejoined our guests we would have our first dance together. I was not only anxious about our performance, but also lacking confidence in the ability of my dress to cooperate with all the twisting and spinning. To calm my mind and ensure there would be no major wardrobe malfunction, Blake pulled out his iPhone and turned on our song. He grabbed my hand and we danced with each other on a cracked slab of concrete in front of an rustic old barn with the sun setting behind us. In that moment, everything slowed down. We looked around and there were no guests, no timeline, and no pressure. It was just the two of us, my new husband and I sharing a moment together that was sweet, improvised, intimate, and unforgettably perfect.

Advice to future brides: Don’t rush the planning process and really take the time to truly enjoy each step. Take the opportunity to have fun, learn more about each other, and explore what it is that makes your relationship so special to each of you. Appreciate the little moments that occur as you work with each other to customize your big day. For me, some of my fondest memories were made while planning; going through all of our favorite songs together and choosing which one to dance to, coming to tears as we wrote our wedding vows, working together to find the right shade of pink for the ties, and stumbling through our first dance practice in the middle of the living room. Those little moments are now just as significant as the actual wedding day.
