A Crisp Fall Serafina Seattle Wedding
Justine and Peter’s intimate fall Seattle wedding at Serafina in October was such a perfect day for those who love the colors and feel of Seattle in the fall. The day was clear, the air was crisp and the city was full of colors. Justine and Peter got ready at the downtown Four Seasons and, after getting Justine dressed in her amazing Luly Yang wedding dress and Jimmy Choo sparkly heels, we headed out to the pool deck to bask in the sunlight and meet with her husband to be.
Justine and Peter are the laid back type of couple. They joked during their capital hill engagement photos session that these were the first photos they had together that didn’t include a beer in hand. You see, these two love good food and good drinks. Justine works at Purple Wine Bar and knows a thing or two about a good wine, as Peter loves him a good beer. There love of food is one of the reasons they chose Serafina for their fall wedding venue. Nestled in on Eastlake, Serafina is a neighborhood restaurant with amazing ambiance and delicious Italian food. While they have hosted plenty of wedding receptions there, I believe this was the first wedding with ceremony that the restaurant has done.
Their 70ish guests sat in the patio between Serafina and Cicchetti. Since it was a beautiful day, the sun was just going behind the trees, and the light was warm and comforting when Justine walked down the aisle to meet Peter. It was a day full of funny anecdotes, tender moments, falling chestnuts (read down at the bridal party photos for this story), close family, amazing details, delicious food and great wine
We were in Volunteer Park for their portraits, and decided to stand here for their bridal party portraits when a chestnut fell on the umbrella of the bridesmaid second from the left. Luckily it only hit the umbrella, and it caused an amazing reaction among them all! Some of the amazing vendors who brought this wedding together are A Kurant Event, New Renaissance Cakes, Seattle Wedding DJ, Salon Maison, A Paper Fling, Maxine’s Floral, Four Seasons , Vintage Ambiance, , Serafina and Rebecca Ellison Photography.
