Married: Chris and Samm

This elementary school teacher and jazz singer are a perfect match! They tied the knot on a crisp February day in Tacoma. Their day was full of love, laughter and tearful joy.

The weather started out drizzly and cold that morning but as soon as Chris and Samm were ready for their first look at Union Station, the sun peeked through the clouds and shooed the rain away! We had bright angled sunlight for their portraits, which made for some striking contrast.

The festivities were held at Historic 1625 in downtown Tacoma and the brick went well with the grey and deep purple color palette they chose. All the details were picture-perfect, thanks to Samm's meticulous attention to detail and fun DIY decorations. They even opted for a doughnut table for dessert, which I thoroughly enjoyed sampling ;).

One of my favorite moments of this beautiful day was Samm's first look with her father - they had the whole wedding party sniffling on the sidelines! There was so much love surrounding this couple that I know they will be well supported as they make this transition into married life.

Congratulations again, Chris and Samm! It was an honor being a part of your wedding day and I wish you many even happier days going forward!
