Ali + Alex: Rock Creek Gardens Wedding


Ali and Alex had a vision for their wedding that was totally them: 1920s glam. From Ali's art-deco inspired dress to their vintage style half moon photo booth, the entire day was a fabulous affair. 

I met Ali more than 10 years ago when we were both in high school drama club. She was a true leader of our rag-tag crew, and inspired us all to shine both onstage and off. When she and Alex and I met last year ago to plot an enchanted forest engagement, I knew we were in for an adventure. We hit up a waterfall, and Ali rocked a yellow dress straight out of a fairytale. But their wedding was even better.

Their wedding day in July was searingly bright, located at Rock Creek Gardens in the South Puget Sound area. Ali's delicate feather hair clip and her golden shoes were the perfect details to start the day off. After a first look more romantic than any you'll see, the bridesmaids gathered their bouquets and the groomsmen lined up for an elegant ceremony filled with meaningful vows and smiles between tears. 

Ali and Alex surprised their guests with a choreographed waltz straight out of the Great Gatsby, and Ali and her dad broke into a dance that was more fun than anyone expected. The wedding guests were treated to a taco bar, and a three-tiered wedding cake that matched the vintage photo booth. As the sun went down, Ali, Alex and I snuck away for a few twilight pictures under twinkling lights, then headed back to the tent to dance the night away.
