Congrats to Khris and Dave – a wedding at the Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay

After a long break…(well not really a break with all the editing and engagement shoots to be done LOL), it’s great to come back again to the shooting mode with Khris and Dave’s wedding at the Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay. I am so thrilled to be part of this wedding day. Weather finally warmed up and we are going to rock the show!

Check out the images from their engagement photo session at Kent Manor Inn in Maryland where they actually got engaged few months before we did the shoot.

BEST WEDDING PHOTOS OF 2010 – Shilshole Bay Beach Club Wedding in Seattle, WA

Chricelle and Brian’s Seattle wedding was our first destination wedding of 2010. We had so much fun with both families. It was a wedding to remember.

Here’s my favorite image from Chricelle’s wedding…as she walks down the isle with her long veil behind her….a very dramatic entrance!

And below are from the next day post…enjoy!

Bride and Groom- Chricelle and Brian

We were so blessed with a gorgeous wedding day on Saturday for Chricelle’s wedding. I prayed for a whole day of sun and my prayers are answered…Thanks be to God! Chricelle and Brian both work at Boeing in Seattle where they met for the first time. This couple is a match made from heaven…they love to travel and they know how to live life. Wishing this beautiful couple a happy marriage and lots of cute kids…LOL

We started the shoot that day at Chricelle’s home in Olympia, WA. I took advantage of the gorgeous Asian decors around their home and incorporated that with her wedding pictures. Her mother insisted to make sure she gets ready at her house…one of the many Filipino wedding traditions. The venue for the wedding ceremony is in Seattle, which is about an hour and a half drive from Olympia. Thank God, the traffic was not as bad as we thought, so we got there just on time for the formal pictures.

Ceremony- Blessed Sacrament Church, Seattle, WA

This church is one of the best churches I’ve ever shot at. Talking about a combination of an antique-like church with modern architecture. Love the natural light inside this church. How I wish we have one of this back in the East Coast.

And the best part is, Father Jordan, who officiated the matrimony, was super nice to us…that’s always a plus when the priest is pretty cool with us  photographers. He even asked everyone to turn around and look above the choir loft for a staged picture. Thanks Father Jordan! Also, Jesson Mata, the music director/wedding coordinator was an awesome guide to us during the ceremony. He even helped me organized the formals after the mass.Ok, Jesson, next time I am back in Seattle for wedding you will be our coordinator.

Reception- Shilshole Bay Beach Club, Seattle, WA

Great venue with a nice view of the sunset.

Love the Asian furnitures and decors at Chricelle’s home. Most of these stuff were imported from the Philippines…gorgeous set-up, and might as well incorporate them into her wedding pictures.


Gorgeous bride in the making….


Mother and daughter before they left for the ceremony. Both of their dresses were made out of Pineapple fabric. They were custom-made and imported from the Philippines. Talk about an eco-friendly wedding dress. =)


I’ve seen a lot of pictures of the bride and groom infront of this church, and every time I see one, there’s always a uniqueness in each of them.


After the ceremony, I took Brian and Chricelle for a drive to Kerry Park, a park overlooking the cityscape of Seattle. For a gorgeous day like that, the park was crowded with tourists. But we tried to capture what we can as the bride and groom try to survive the heat of the sun.


And last but not least, they did a great choice for their reception venue – Shilshole Bay Beach Club, where the sunset view is amazing!
