Sara & Michael's Wedding

From the very beginning, I could tell this was going to be a special day. After getting ready at the Watertown Hotel, they came downstairs for their "first look." When Sara and Michael saw each other for the first time, it was truly a special moment. You could see the overwhelming sense of joy and excitement welling up within them--more than a few tears were shed, and I think Sara and Michael may have even cried a little too. It was one of the most beautiful and touching moments of their entire day. Although, Michael may have topped that at the reception when he surprised Sara by singing a song that he had written for her. That was definitely a smooth move--one worth remembering and repeating throughout your marriage Michael... ;)

LOVE THIS! If you go to you can get your own pictures printed on Jones soda bottles. Michael and Sara did this with several of their engagement photos as favors for guests--so cool!

You can see Sara and Michael's slideshow here. You can also preregister to see all of their wedding photos when they are ready here. Congratulations Sara and Michael!

Among Sara & Michael's amazing vendors were: the talented musician Geoffrey Castle * the absolute BEST DJ in Seattle, Austin Beaver with Nite Lite Entertainment * University Temple United Methodist Church * totally adorable cupcakes by Danny Fisher * beautiful arrangements and decor by Miki's Flowers * the Seattle Harbor Club.
