Gasworks Park Wedding, Seattle, WA | Jen and Robbie

 
This wedding was amazing. It was amazing, not only because it was beautiful, but because Jen and Robbie didn’t let the unexpected rain put a damper on their outdoor wedding day.  They researched the day before deciding on having no “rain” plan for their Gasworks Park wedding. The weekend of August 7th was Seafair weekend and one of the least likely weekends all year long in Seattle to rain. Perfect for a beautiful outdoor wedding overlooking downtown Seattle.
Well, Seattle decided to throw everyone through a loop and make it POUR all day. It never even phased them. Jen was a bundle of smiles and excitement from the moment I showed up; nothing was going to affect the day she got to marry Robbie.

So, that morning, I ran over to the amazing Bella Umbrella store in Ballard, where she rents and sells vintage and otherwise amazing umbrella’s for all sorts of occasions. She was a bit short on supply seeing that everyone else with outdoor weddings that weekend also thought of her, but we got some amazing umbrella’s for the girls and headed for Gasworks Park.

Even though the rain was still going strong by the time the ceremony was to start, Jen wanted her wedding right where she planned it. Everyone donned their umbrellas and joined the bridal party for the ceremony where Jen and Robbie included a “stone ceremony” into their regular ceremony. All guests were invited to gather a stone from the basket of stones that Jen and Robbie have gathered, and give the stones to them with a wish or congratulation. It was a beautiful addition to their special day.

Then they hopped into a pedi cab to take them from Gasworks to the UW Club.

I also loved the corks they used for their seating assignments. They saved all the corks they have from every bottle of wine they shared in their relationship and used them as a detail in their wedding!Wedding details featuring a white and lavender chrysanthemum bridal bouquet, wine cork place card holders, a wedding cake covered in purple and red chrysanthemums and multicolored floral arrangements

Thank you Jen and Robbie for sharing such a beautiful day with me! I am sad you have moved to Chicago (3 days after the wedding!!!!) because that means I won’t be able to see you and Robbie grow into your relationship and start a family down the road, but I am super excited for your upcoming adventures.

    Becca, I absolutely love these pictures. Even as far away as I am (in Manila right now!) I try to look at them as often as possible. They bring back such wonderful memories of a beautiful day. I’m glad you were the one who captured them.

    These pictures manage to capture the beauty of the rain without the misery we may have been feeling at times! The umbrellas make it so unique and everyone and everything looks amazing. I love the pictures of Jen’s dress and in the buildings at Gasworks–how unexpected!
