Congratulations Lindsay and Chris!

This wedding was quite possibly one my most anticipated weddings of the year, as Lindsay and Chris had waited for Chris to return home from Iraq to be able to get married! Chris is in the Military and had been serving in Iraq right before their wedding, so Lindsay waited patiently while her fiancĂ© returned to the states! All of their groomsmen were also in the Military, so they all wore their “dress blues” which are their formal outfits they wear for special occasions like this! These images are all thanks to Ben Becker Photography, and these first few above were taken at the Olympic Sculpture Park!

One of my favorite memories from this wedding was their cake cutting – the military puts a unique twist on the traditional cake cutting and they use a sword to “cut” the cake. So, Chris and Lindsay used a sword that was something like 80 years old and was an heirloom from Chris’ family, so it was extra special.

A fun tidbit about this's going to be featured soon in a book that a fellow wedding planner in Colorado is writing! The focus of the book will be on metropolitan city weddings and she is going to feature a few weddings from each major city. I'm excited to see the results and will definitely post when the book is published!

  1. You can just tell that these aren't in Texas. I love the second shot of them on the bridge/ledge. Amazing!

  2. Yes, isn't that image so cool on the ledge? It's at a really cool Sculpture Park in Seattle overlooking the water, mountains, etc.
