A Wedding at The Golf Club at Newcastle: Mary and Chris

Mary and Chris’ wedding at the Golf Club at Newcastle was an elegant and festive affair.

A teacher of dance, Mary infused her grace and energy into the day. Their ceremony was at the grand St James Cathedral in Seattle. Planned and styled by my good friend Lisa Chambers of Chambers & Co, with florals from Bella Rugosa.

Father of the bride toast was one of the most heartfelt speeches I’d had the privilege of witnessing in my career. Makes me think about my husband and my two daughters and how I’d be a blithering mess at their weddings (don’t even wanna think about it – but I am!).
