Matt and Michelle's Monte Cristo Ballroom Wedding

I have been busy this summer photographing a number of amazing weddings and there will be many more posts to come, but to start things off I couldn't resist posting a few images from Matt and Michelle's beautiful wedding. I had the privilege of being at second photographer for Andy Pinnell of Studio 517 (http://www.studiofiveseventeen.com) for their wedding at the amazing Monte Cristo Ballroom in Everett.Image I have photographed at so many great locations that it would be impossible to pick a favorite, but the Monte Cristo Ballroom definitely ranks up there. The staff was wonderful, the building was beautiful and full of gorgeous natural window light, and the decor looked like a page out of an anthropologie magazine. There wasn't a detail that was forgotten in the whole building, including the bridal suite, which made for some beautiful getting ready photos

One of favorite parts of weddings is all the little personalized details that make a wedding unique. Michelle and Matt had some amazing details, including hand painted shoes from Figgie Shoes http://www.figgieshoes.com, and a charm from Michelle's childhood on her bouquet for her something old.

Matt and Michelle had a gorgeous wedding and it was so evident that they were very in love! I felt so honored to be a part of their special day, and I wish them the very best in their life together.
