Bruce and Mehnaz Wed Atop Sundial Hill at Gas Works Park

Talk about a beautiful setting:   the artistic sundial atop the hill, Lake Union and the skyline of Seattle.

Plus, this is where Bruce and Mehnaz shared their first date.  So there was sentimental value too.

Mehnaz was escorted to the wedding by a dear family friend.  The two made a striking picture as they progressed up the hill.

Atop the hill, the ceremony began.  Family and friends drew close.

"Dr. Chuck" presented a reading by Kahlil Gibran on Marriage.

Love one another, 
  but make not a bond of love:
Let it rather be a moving sea 

  between the shores of your souls.

The two shared very unique wedding vows, alternating as they spoke.

Rings were exchanged ... and happiness continued to prevail.

Now the two have even more memories to enjoy in context to Gas Works Park!

Wishing Bruce and Mehnaz the very best in life ... along with their family and friends.
Thanks to Scott Means for the photographs.

Scott and Amy Exchange Their Wedding Vows at the Bear Creek Country Club

Amy and Scott with their wedding party at Bear Creek Country Club - Patricia Stimac,Seattle Wedding Officiant

What an absolutely perfect day for a wedding!  Sunny skies, warm (but not hot) temperatures, a beautiful setting.  Amy and Scott were so fortunate.   It doesn't get better than this in the Pacific Northwest.

The "ladies" of Amy and Scott's wedding at the Bear Creek Country Club - Patricia Stimac, Seattle Wedding Officiant

The bride and groom decided to be traditional and not see each other until the ceremony began.  So the majority of the couple's photos took place during the cocktail hour.  The guys particularly appreciated that many of these were taken in the shade!

And, of course, there needed to be a photo in front of the Bear Creek signature sand traps at the entrance to the Club.  

Love this area.

Wishing Scott and Amy all the happiness and joy in the world.  It is always a gift to find your life partner and to have someone to share everyday experiences. 

Thanks to all the wedding professionals who helped make Amy and Scott's wedding dreams become reality.

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.

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 ...
