I first met David and Yulia through their wedding coordinator, the very talented Stephanie from Lilac&Lace and immediately formed a great connection with them. They wanted a small but beautiful and elegant wedding using black, white and gold accents and Stephanie and her team did such a fantastic job putting together Yulia and David’s vision for their dream wedding. The French Creek Manor in Snohomish, WA also provided such a beautiful backdrop for their special day which was made perfect by their small and close circle of family and friends that came together to celebrate their special day. Being a photographer herself, I could tell Yulia was a little sad to put down her camera but she had such a great time being on the other side of the lens.
Their wedding day started at their home in Kirkland for Yulia and an old fashioned Barber Shoppe for David. How cool is that?
After their emotional first look we headed to Juanita Bay Park in Kirkland for their portraits. As a destination wedding photographer, I feel so lucky to be able to shoot in some amazing wedding locations and I have to say the Pacific Northwest has a very special place in my heart.
As Yulia was getting ready to walk down the aisle for her wedding ceremony, David was patiently waiting for her. You could sense he was so full of anticipation and even got teary eyed when he saw her walking towards him.
