Vanessa & Ryan

This wedding holds a special place in my heart because both the bride and groom are Cougs! Ryan and Vanessa met in Pullman and are now both engineers and live in Mercer Island. The wedding ceremony was lavish and decadent. St. James Cathedral was the beautiful backdrop for this traditional Filipino Wedding and Columbia Tower Club was the sky high reception venue for all 200+ of their guests. Vanessa had the PERFECT dress to walk down the aisle of St. James Cathedral. Reem Acra is know for their ball gowns--and let me tell you, this dress from Voletta Couture in Bellevue was drop dead gorgeous! (see photos below)

Random Factoid: For all you Team Coco fans out there--St. James Cathedral is where your beloved Connan O'Brien got married!

In true WSU Cougar fashion one of the colors of their wedding had to be Crimson. We accented the Crimson with Tiffany Blue and White. Guests were welcomed to cocktail hour at CTC and greeted with a Crimson Strawberry Spritzer, followed by an open bar of course (again in true Cougar fashion.) Guests were escorted to the 76th floor of the Columbia Tower Club for dinner and dancing. Vanessa, a woman after my own heart was obessed with having the right chair for her reception...they chose the gorgrous dark wood Chiavari chairs from Grand Event Rentals. They worked perfectly and were worth every penny!

Check out these fabulous photographs taken by the ever-so-talented Loren Callahan with Alante Photography. This wedding was also featured in Seattle Bride Magazine's latest issue--so check it out on page 108 &109.
Go Cougs!
