Meet Ryan and Jessica; one of my very favorite couples this year. Why? Because in the midst of whatever chaos or confusion they encountered on their wedding day, they handled everything with grace, humor, kindness, and style. It was at this wedding that I realized what a huge influence the bride has on the tone of the wedding day. If she is stressed and upset, the day becomes stressful and tense. If she is relaxed and happy, the day becomes a true celebration, as it should be. Jessica was this second type of bride. In the face of stress, she knew when to let go of control and just go with the flow of the day. The joy she felt was contagious and it was a true honor and pleasure to spend time with her and Ryan. I am so happy for both of them.
The ceremony was held at the Rose Garden at the Zoo, with the reception at Shilshole Bay Beach Club. The fabulous Sean Patrick O'Reilly officiated.
