On the morning of July 20, 2013 Kate and her bridesmaids got ready at the Alexis Hotel while just a few blocks away, Scott and his groomsmen finished up final preparations at the W Seattle before they would all celebrate later that evening at FareStart. Rick+Anna Photography was on hand to capture their wedding day which incorporated the couples giving hearts as they are big supporters of local charities including one that they hold responsible for their lasting love, Motley Zoo.
Making sure not to see each other as they both arrived at FareStart, Scott and Kate, watched as guests made their way to their wedding venue. Having visited FareStart in the past for numerous chef's dinners and knowing what FareStart meant for the city, they knew this was the perfect place for their celebration!
The bridal procession ended with Kate's parents escorting her down the stairs then leading the way so Kate could walk down the aisle on her own as she was able to see Scott for the first time that day.
Kate's Father officiated the ceremony.
As the newlyweds signed their marriage license and headed outside for photos, guests dined on pulled pork sliders, roasted vegetable frittata's, soka patties with micro ratatouille and a cheese board.
After finding their seats, friends and family enjoyed their choice of entrees ranging from grilled salmon with a citrus vinaigrette to grilled beef tenderloin with a pinot noir jus or a pan-seared quinoa cake with a balsamic glaze.
After a delicious meal, Kate and Scott cut into their pie which signaled the start of dessert, dancing and a truly memorable wedding day!
As a nod to their parents, Kate & Scott surprised their parents by displaying their wedding images but the fun was had when Rick+Anna Photography stole the couples off the dance floor and went to take these shots outside. We suggested that their parents recreate these images without the newlyweds knowing that day! What a special surprise and by far one of our favorite series of wedding images!

Congratulations Kate & Scott!
"We truly cannot imagine how we would have had such a lovely family celebration without you." ~ Kate
