Andrea and Henry planned THE most unique wedding I've ever photographed. Ever. The lovely Meredith of Rain Wedding Planning brought it to life and the whole day was just a ball. As for how these two met? They tell it best, and it's too good for me to paraphrase!
"Once upon a time, both Henry and Andrea moved from California to Seattle. Henry, not knowing anybody in the area, turned to the magic of computers to help him find new friends. He searched the internet high and low, from hobby meetup groups to dating sites, looking for interesting people of all types. In his searches he found many friends, and he also found Andrea. Andrea's page asked some very peculiar questions about Batman actors and Disney movies.
Henry wrote to her and answered the questions truthfully — Kevin Conroy is clearly the best Batman, even if he only contributed his voice to the animated series — and closed with:
'You and I should get coffee some time.
I think it's going to be AWESOME.'
Four months later, there was a cat.
They took trips to Hawaii and Paris. They sampled the best restaurants in Seattle. They baked cookies and watched movies and played board games and bought a house. They stood on top of the Space Needle and ate gelato under shooting stars. And after an endless onslaught of beautiful, spontaneous, romantic moments in which Henry did not propose, he asked Andrea to marry him. On the couch. After an episode of Game of Thrones.
She said yes. And that's how we know that it's going to be awesome."
Andrea and Henry, your whole wedding day was … awesome. Just plain awesome. I'm so honored to have been there and captured each beautiful piece. Cheers to you guys!
Andrea and Henry are just FUN people. Plain and simple.
Yes, those are STAR TREK BOUTONNIERES.
I could have photographed Molly Taylor's beautiful florals all day long. Holy cow were they gorgeous! I especially loved the luxe ribbon detailing.
Andrea and Henry had a few wedding themes that were "hidden in plain sight" as Meredith described it to me. One of those themes was dinosaurs. Can you find the dinosaur hidden in the bouquet above? I absolutely adore how Andrea and Henry integrated their interests and personalities into their wedding details.
