Seymour Conservatory Wedding



This Seymour Conservatory Wedding with Reception at Shenanigans was a dream in the making and so meant to be!

Back in February or March I photographed bridals for Heidi and Michael at the W.W. Seymour Botanical Conservatory in Tacoma, Washington. Check out that post HERE!

Many moons ago I photographed a wedding reception at C.I. Shenanigans.

It was so fun when Brooke and Joel reached out about their wedding plans and I was familiar with both their ceremony and reception locations! I love photographing repeat venues. You’d think after 100 weddings in the books I would have repeated wedding venues many times! NOPE. Not even close. I’ve repeated wedding venues just four or five times.

I first arrived at Shenanigans as Brooke and her sister were finishing final details in the reception room. It was dark and romantic. The colors were rich and beautiful. I love working in low light so this reception was a dream!

After finishing up details at the reception, I drove over to the Seymour Conservatory for the wedding ceremony! I saw Joel making final touches as the men put on their boutonnieres. Brooke’s Mom was busy setting up the welcome table and ceremony stand. Guests visited outside and inside as they admired the landscaping and unique plants.

Right at the entrance, a lemon lime tree had fruit the size of a child’s head! haha Everyone admired the tree and the orchids.

Right before the ceremony I accidentally stepped back into a big cactus! Joel and their officiant were so nice to help me pick it back up! Definitely one of my more embarrassing wedding day moments.

After the ceremony we finished family photos and took a quick moment for couple’s portraits. We found the perfect fall tree as my favorite back drop!

As the light faded we headed to the reception.

Brooke and Joel’s closest friends and family were all there. There was AMAZING food, beautiful toasts, and even better cake!

Thank you so much for working with The Studio, Brooke & Joel! I can’t wait to see your completed gallery soon! ♥

Hi! How are you? Thinking of lots of my clients lately and hoping you’re doing well no matter where life has taken you! I’ve been laying low. Loving on my kiddos, friends, sisters, and partners. They’re all taking great care of me, too! Working my booty offf. Trying to eat healthy and navigate adulting more […]

The in between

Life has been very romantic lately. Unknown and confusing and both flighty and grounded all at once. I remember being 14 and seeing my entire life by your side. Life is wild. I remember a water bottle and abandoned bleachers. I remember axe body spray and the way I had never been kissed. I know […]

Nirvana & I think of you

I hope you know better than to think I’d want to be anywhere but here right now. It was true on NYE and it’s true right now in my car outside the café. This may have felt seamless. Too seamless. Happenstance. But I’m here on purpose, now. I see your soft heart and I see […]

I hope you know better

You’ll walk through a glittering white veil, uncharacteristically soft compared to what you’ll find behind it. It has no need to keep you out. You quickly realize it’s the aura within that turns most around. The texture disorients. I’ll already be inside. What do you see? Upon first impression, you’re in a desert. Interesting considering […]
