Houseboat Wedding for Kristina and Jille!



Kent officiated for this wonderful couple on their friend's houseboat on Lake Union.

The day was absolutely beautiful.








A friend of theirs came by on his boat -- yup, right in the middle of the ceremony.  There was much good humor and lots of laughs, plus the taking of this photo before all returned to complete the ceremony.

Kristina and Jille emailed us after the ceremony:

          Thank you so much for a beautiful ceremony!  
           It turned out perfectly, even with the interruption!  
           Attached is the "interruption picture" as I like to call it.  :) 
 
Life can be so very playful and fun!

Wishing Jille and Kristina many more years of happiness together.

"Ring Security" in Action at William and Lauren's Wedding

William & Lauren's Ring Bearers - Kent Buttars, A Heavenly Ceremony
Kent and I always head to the photo booth at wedding receptions.  Sad face ... I wasn't able to attend this one ... so Kent went looking for trouble.

He found Hunter and Chase, the ring bearers.  Both were wearing their "Ring Security" t-shirts and ready for action.

The three had a pretty good time, I'd say.

Lauren sent along the photos.  So glad she did!

Photobooths are just plain fun!

Clock Theme For Shanon and Kris's Wedding -- and Their Engagement Photos

Shan and Kris plan a clock theme for their wedding - Patricia Stimac and Kent Buttars, Seattle Wedding Officiants

When I met Kris and Shanon, I was so excited to hear about their wedding plans (more on that to come).

Since they chose a clock theme for their celebration, this engagement photo is so perfect for them.

Sean Hoyt of Affinity Photography has posed a challenge to see if anyone knows where it was taken.  Hint:  somewhere in Seattle.

Wishing this creative and inventive couple the best in their life together.

I thought that was a very nice compliment for John!

And it bodes well for their wedding photos as well.

Eugenia and Jan Roelof look so happy.  And their ceremony is going to be wonderful.  (Kent will be officiating for them.)  Many bright days are in their future together.

Jen and Jeff Wed at Crystal Mountain

Wedding ceremony atop Crystal Mountain - Patricia Stimac, Seattle Wedding Officiant

What could be more beautiful than this?  Family and friends gathered from across the country, rode the gondola to the top of Crystal Mountain, and witnessed Jeff and Jen exchange their wedding vows.  

It was calm and warm atop the mountain.  The wind gently blew the clouds away from Mt. Rainier and at the end of the ceremony, the sun broke through.  Now, that's a blessing.

Thanks to Rick Takagi for this lovely photo.  More to come ...

Anthony & Elisha Wed on the Fourth of July - Chewie, Their Dog, Has Central Role

In Seattle, folk wisdom says the summer begins the day after the Fourth of July.  This year, we lucked out and had a perfect sunny afternoon.

(Yes, we're getting ready to go to see the Fireworks on Lake Union and it has started to rain ... so sad.)





Elisha was beautiful, Anthony handsome and Chewie ... well, Chewie is in a class of his own.  Quite the dapper doggie.

Wishing Anthony and Elisha (and Chewie) a very happy life together!

Investment in Planning a Personal Wedding Ceremony is Worth the Effort!




We love our ceremony ... and we really enjoyed putting it together.  I'm glad we took this time to really work on it and talk through it and use it to discuss our intentions for marriage, as well as for the rest of the wedding. 




 

Just received this email from Eddie and Nicole this afternoon. It was a pleasure to hear these words.

Kent and I truly would like the words we speak at a couple's wedding ceremony to be words that reflect them, that inspire, that offer hope, that celebrate their good fortune.  I'm smiling as I write this because a ceremony is such a special moment and it always makes us happy!

If you are planning your ceremony and would like to engage in a co-creative, thoughtful and meaningful process to arrive at wording that is just right for the two of you, give us a call at 206.789.9788 or contact us through our website.
