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.
