Tatjana and Brady have opposing personalities but in the complimentary way, he’s a little more outgoing and extroverted and shes a bit more reserved and introverted. However the two of them combined are quite the pair when it comes to having a good time. This Seattle Country Club wedding was certainly one for the books.
Broadmoor Golf & Country Club is located kitty corner to the UW Arboretum and naturally we used that proximity to our advantage and utilized the scenery and the classic aqueduct for our first look and formal shots. We also used the pristine manicured greens of the course for some contextual shots as well. The gents got themselves ready in downtown Seattle at the Seattle Athletic Club and the ladies opted to take the Champion’s Room at Broadmoor all to themselves. Tatjana surrounded herself with her closest friends and her Mother while Brady kept his closest buds at hand and seeing as how the guys get ready faster that also means they get to start the party sooner!
Once everyone was on site at the country club we shot our formals and took our time before the ceremony to just relax and make the last minute preparations. The staff at Broadmoor handled their end of the deal beautifully and the catering and decor looked excellent. One of Tatjana’s friends; Carey of Bleedfoot Florals handled all of the flower arrangements, bouquets and her unique style really shined through. I especially loved the low key and subtle decor on the cake as well as the bushy and wild look of the fireplace mantle. She also put together the flowers and decorations at the ceremony site alter.
The ceremony was touching and heartfelt, given by a friend of the family who happily stuck around and partied with the rest of the crew through the night. A short poem reading by two dear friends was a touching addition. After the ceremony the buffet opened and the drinks started flowing and by the hour the fun kept getting bumped up a few notches. I was lucky to get a few minutes with just Tat + Brady for some twilight portraits later in the evening, it can be hard to pull the main attractions away from an event where they are in high demand for attention.
Great people, great guest and a great location. It takes a village to make it all work.
