The Whiskey Table

  Sometimes to come up with a great event theme, all you need is the location.  Some venues serve as blank canvases on which to paint the look of an affair, but others come fully equipped with an undeniable atmosphere.  If you’re getting married at The Clubhouse on Queen Anne, then you’re certain to have a stunning vintage fete.  Add to that a love of the opulence of the Prohibition Era and you have yourself a Speakeasy night to remember.  A group of Seattle vendors teamed up to create such a stylish wedding and the results are flapper-tastic!  Photographer Irene …

So …

Darcy’s Bride

Dr. Who & the Newlyweds

Unless you’ve been living in a cave for the last 50 years, then you’ve probably heard of the British TV phenomena, Dr. Who.  If you’re not familiar, it is the timeless tale of a man trying to find his way in life… by battling robots and teleporting through blue police boxes.  Naturally, it makes for an amazingly kick-ass wedding theme!  Photographer Bonnallie Brodeur describes the fantastical day: Émilie and Bobby are inseparable. They met while they were in school and haven’t left each other’s side since. They have become best friends, confidantes, accomplices, and soul mates.  They chose to celebrate their love …
