August 12 of 12

Time again for 12 of 12, and thanks to Chad for developing this oh so cool way of sharing our days each month.

Hectic day, so no pics from work ... but I left work early because Scott and I attended a Tuesday (yes, Tuesday) wedding this evening in Issaquah. So, without intending to, I have a love/marriage/tradition/hope theme this month. And the couple that got married are the most beautiful, wonderful, deserving people. So let's take a little trip, shall we?

4:29 p.m. The wedding is at 5:00. It's 20 or so miles away. Think we'll make it?

4:44 p.m. Almost to Issaquah ... luckily traffic is light.

4:53 p.m. Joe Jetta saved the day. And I was wearing heavy shoes. Made it in time.

4:55 p.m. One rarely wears a suit in Seattle. Matterdays likes wearing suits. And a cute pink tie that one of my team members bought me for Christmas last year.

5:02 p.m. The groom looks a tad nervous.

5:28 p.m. The beautiful bride is given away.

5:45 p.m. I love this picture. They were both so emotional during their vows. The bride sweetly brushed away a tear off of the groom's cheek.

5:51 p.m. You may now kiss your bride. Applause.

6:10 p.m. The bride walks through the reception hall. Radiant.

6:17 p.m. The Hall - simple and very cool.

7:02 p.m. The bride's shoes. Somehow, I love them.

7:29 p.m. The First Dance. Of many, many, many dances.

As cynical as I tend to be about ... well, everything, I am one of those mushy types who tears up a bit at weddings. I hope that their life together is long and happy and more than either of them ever even imagined wishing for.

Lynette and Joel, Love and The Best Of Everything To You Always.

And that's my 12 of 12.

We really wanted to get married at that barn in Issaquah (I can't remember what it's called though), but all of our family was in Olympia so we got married there, which was great too. But those pictures are great, we loved that place.

Hey! This is so wonderful. What a nice 12 of 12. (Every month I plan on joining this, and every month I forget.) You look gorgeous in a suit, no surprise, although I was waiting for a pic of Scooter in a suit, too! Glad you had a nice night.

Matterdays looks so dapper and all grown up. It makes me want to pinch yer cheeks ;)

Looks like a lovely evening!

Polt said...

The groom's quite the cutie. And she brushed a tear away...OH, it's just like in a movie! How sweet.

beautiful pictures, what a nice way to spend a Tuesday night. Very dapper in your cute pink tie.

Sizzle said...

How sweet! You look great in a suit. I wish men would wear suits more often. Or maybe I need to work downtown?

Lewis said...

I'll will my one and only suit to Matterdays. Because the Sprit of Saint Lewis can't stand 'em. As for the groom, he looks more than nervous. He looks sexy and handsome! And can't love and devotion and all of that take place on the weekend instead of Tuesdays?????

A nice theme-related 12 of 12. Great captures of intimate moments. And that guy with the suit and pink tie is such a dapper one I might add. ;-)

A lovely event to make for a more interesting mid-week 12 of 12! (I'm sure that was the reasoning behind them choosing a Tuesday :P)

Also the bride in the 6:10pm photo? Helena Christensen's twin, I tells ya!

Scooter said...

Okay, this is really weird...but I went to a wedding that day, too. What's really odd, is I took pictures of the shoes worn by the mother-of-the-bride! What are the chances???
