Kaila + Josh: Downtown Tacoma Wedding at Washington State History Museum


Kaila and Josh got married in downtown Tacoma, WA at the Washington State History Museum. I had the opportunity to take their engagement pictures last spring, only blocks from where their ceremony would be this summer. We met at a brewery on a drizzly day, and enjoyed all the cloudy vibes Tacoma had to offer. See the whole session here.

Kaila and Josh's wedding day was just the opposite, with bright sun followed by a gorgeous sunset. Their venue, Washington State History Museum, was decked out in black and gold details. We wandered down through the Chihuly Bridge of Glass toward the Port of Tacoma. Kaila rocked the most amazing tiered Maggie Sottero dress.  

Kaila and Josh's wedding ceremony was super family-oriented and so uniquely them. Kaila's dad even officiated! Washington State History Museum was an amazing venue to hold their event, and Kaila looked like a dream as she came down the terraced ceremony site. The whole scene was elegant and romantic as Josh and Kaila said their vows, with dozens of laughs along the way.

After the reception, we snuck out for some golden hour portraits on the Chihuly Bridge of Glass. With the cars rushing below, it was every wedding photographer's dream as the sun dipped lower in the sky. We headed back for some dancing, a bouquet toss, and a party that only Josh and Kaila could throw.

By far the best! She did our engagement shoot as well as our recent wedding and we couldn't have been happier. She is professional, fun, and knows what she is doing! We loved our engagement photos and can't wait for our wedding photos. She will definitely be photographing all the important moments in our life together!
