A Classic Fall Catholic Wedding
Paul and Julia’s Bothell wedding was beautiful and we have been bursting at the seams to share it with you! First of all, if you haven’t already seen Paul and Julia’s gorgeous engagement, you have to go check it out!
Paul and Julia are simply a beautiful couple – inside and out. We knew this was going to be one of the highlights of our season just because they are both so sweet and genuine. We’ve been looking forward to capturing their day since their engagement session last fall at Julia’s parents’ home in Conway, WA! It was a gorgeous colorful fall day in the PNW! In fact, the fall colors that Paul & Julia chose were perfect and had a great pop! We know that even if the weather had been gloomy and rainy, these two would have been joyful none-the-less. They were so excited to finally be married. When you see their genuine smiles and laughter in their portraits you can see the love between them!
A First look…then off to the Ceremony
We simply LOVED Julia’s gorgeous dress, it was so classic and elegant and had somewhat of a vintage feel to it…she could not have looked more radiant as she prepared to go meet Paul for the First Look!! Paul and Julia’s first look was so awesome, not so much because of the location (just outside the hotel) but because they had so much anticipation. These two just couldn’t stop smiling throughout the morning as they were getting ready, knowing they got to see each other soon! They were SO excited and we just loved hearing their laughter as they anticipated seeing each other for the first time. Their first look was filled with so many smiles and pure joy, we loved capturing it.
Paul and Julia’s ceremony was held at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church in Bothell. It was an elegant and simple Catholic ceremony full of beautiful music from beginning to end.
Grand Hotel Reception
After the Ceremony, we all traveled back to the hotel for the party to start. It started off with cocktail hour in the grand lobby space of the beautifully remodeled Embassy Suites Seattle North. They then made a huge splash with their grand entrance into the ballroom. The celebration continued well into the evening with dancing, toasts, and laughing of friends and family. One of our favorite moments of the day was when Julia’s Mom and Dad got out on the dance floor! Once they got out dancing, the dance floor filled up and stayed full for hours and hours! It was a joyful celebration of such a wonderful couple!! Julia and Paul, congratulations on this special new season of life!
Enjoy our favorites from their day!
