Kristi and Will were married in the heart of gorgeous Tacoma Washington. I fell in love with Tacoma when I attended the Urban Campus of the University of Washington in the heart of downtown, so being back in Tacoma was a wonderful feeling! Kristi + Will’s wedding was pure Pacific Northwest beauty. The backdrop of the Estate was a beautiful panoramic view of the Puget Sound. The clouds in the sky did not stop these two from having the time of their lives.
Everything about their wedding was romantic and elegant from the silver candle holders that adorn the tables to the soft blush floral arrangements which complimented Kristi’s GORGEOUS lace dress. Perfection, for this Sunday afternoon affair.
Emotions ran high throughout the day, but in such a way that let you know exactly how in love these two were. Their 1st look was a perfect reason I am such an advocate for escaping the crowded venue and being in the moment with the one you love; the intimacy in the moment of a 1st look in astounding. All the stresses and worries of the day melt away as you get lost in the moment.
I had to break this wedding into 3 parts, so I hope you enjoy part 1 of Kristi + Will’s wedding Day!
XOXO – J
