Jennifer and Jonathan Wedding at Hangar 30 Magnuson Park Seattle
Jennifer and Jonathan met Kate and I at Talaris Conference Center for their first look. This was the perfect time right after the bride and groom getting ready to be able to take a moment together to stroll hand in hand, take a breath of fresh air and laugh together before the busy part of their big day began. The serenity of the water and shade of the weeping willows were the perfect setting.
From here we drove to Magnuson Park Hangar 30 for cocktail hour in the Officers Club upstairs. There was live guitar music, gourmet appetizers, lots of family and friends, hugging, dancing and laughing.
After cocktail hour Jennifer and Jonathan led everyone in a procession from the Officers Club, past Hangar 30, down a winding pathway through the gardens which opened up to a vast green amphitheater! All the guests were seated here while the bride and groom took a moment for photos in the flower gardens above and congregated with their dear friend and officiant.
The mood was jovial. Both the bride and groom waved to everyone as they walked down the aisle and hollered silly comments to guests yelling “woo!” from their seats. The big first kiss then another procession to the Hangar for the reception. Guests stood in line to sign the guest album, grab their seating chart tag and treat themselves to a cotton candy flavored Oreo…yes, theses little morsels served in glass jars with antiqued silver lids were delicious!
Cocktail hour again but this time with a whole band playing, a bar and a photo booth. Little kids played ball with their dads, the pre-teens made their silliest faces possible and arranged their wacky poses for our cameras while the adults clinked their glasses in “cheers!”
Dinner was served family style (which I love). The caterers were fabulous. Their attention to detail did not go unnoticed by Kate and I who have been to many weddings. We were impressed. As you can see we were kept very busy and entertained taking photos of all the guests, and the multitude of details that made Hangar 30 elegant, festive and unique.
Please enjoy the rest of the photos that are full of the toast, cake cutting, dancing and fun/silly family photos.
