Marit and Craig are the perfect match. Their story is like a romantic comedy script...They met through mutual friends in a ballroom, went through several phone miscommunications and then finally found each other again in the end. Marit followed the wedding tradition of something old, new, borrowed, blue and had a penny in her shoe. She nailed the vintage look and had lace everywhere!
Marit's mother made the wedding gown, and the lace at the bottom of the dress was from the mother's wedding gown. Her mother put so much work into the dress and was working on it up until the wedding morning! Such dedication and such symbolism.
We also photographed the largest family portrait we have done in a long time. There were even family members who came from Norway! They had a Kransekake, which is an 18 layer Norwegian wedding cake, made by her Norwegian maid of honor. They topped the cake with a vintage topper from 1957 that was used in her friends wedding and passed on for Marit to use. The bridesmaids had matching forever bracelets and this symbol was also intertwined into both the bride and groom's wedding bands.
We had the pleasure of working with Jocelyn and her team with The Invisible Hostess and they were amazing! They were so good at logistics before and during the wedding. All of the little details were taken care of which made for an awesome stress free day. The wedding cake was truly designed by a cake artist! Cake Noir specializes in hand painted cakes, which is a true art! We haven't seen many wedding cakes like this! The ceremony was held at Our Redeemer's Lutheran Church in Seattle, WA and the reception was at Daybreak Star Indian Cultural Center in Seattle, WA.
