Brooke and George

I am so thrilled to bring you today’s wedding, the beautiful plaid details had me from the word go! Today’s Seattle wedding is the wedding of Brooke and George.

Brooke and George met through their friends from high school, Jeff and Michelle.  Everyone was home from college during the summer of 2005, and Michelle wanted Brooke to meet her new boyfriend from college, Jeff who lived an hour north in Seattle.  Brooke and Michelle went to Seattle and Jeff was hanging out with all of his friends, one of which was George.  They hit it off immediately, and dated off and on through college and were engaged two years out of college.

Brooke says “Our engagement story is pretty amazing.  I had been getting small hints about two months prior to him proposing, but didn’t want to jinx anything so I kept thinking it wasn’t happening.  George decided it would be a cute idea to get our picture taken with the Nordstrom Santa and send out holiday cards.

I was against sending out holiday cards, when we were just boyfriend/girlfriend, but George insisted that we get our picture taken anyway (hint #1).  Then he wanted to specifically schedule the picture on the Saturday after Thanksgiving (George never PLANS……hint #2).

The week of Thanksgiving George asked me what I was going to wear for the picture, I said I hadn’t really thought about it yet.  George is always saying I buy too many clothes, and when I said I hadn’t thought about what I was wearing he said, “why don’t you buy something new?”  Obviously that was a HUGE hint #3 that George was telling me to go shopping.  When the say to get our picture with Santa came, we sat on Santa’s lap and then stood up and Santa asked us what we wanted for Christmas.

It was then that George got down on one knee and said, “All I want for Christmas is this beautiful woman to be my wife.”  Everyone clapped, I cried and we have been living happily ever after since.”

Today’s photography is by Kirk Mastin.


Brooke wore a gown from Cicada Bridal. In a nod to family she wore her future mother in law’s pearl bracelet and her grandmother’s pearl earrings. Brooke wore shoes by Cole Haan.




The bridesmaids wore plaid, strapless dresses in red, black and white made by Brooke’s mother and her friends. The fabric was ordered from Scotland where Brooke also found a manufacturer who used the same fabric to make the cufflinks for the groom and his attendants. The bridesmaids wore Guess black peeptoes.





Brooke and George opted to see each other before the ceremony, on the steps of their reception venue Broadmoor Golf Club.












The flowers were from Metropolitan Market.





Time to get married!

Check back this afternoon for the ceremony and reception of Brooke and George!

    For those who want to make a permanent change in their
    weight increase of fiber food in their diet is vital.
    The product is extracted from Garcinia Cambogia, a green fruit that resembles a small pumpkin. It might have negative effect on an individual’s health.
    Garcinia Cambogia can help you enhance your body through weight loss tremendously, but being realistic and knowing that it
    takes a lot more than just a pill to do so better prepares you
    for the road ahead. The main active ingredient in real
    hoodia gordonii plus is, as the name suggests, hoodia gordonii.
    In just over a month, I’d dropped 25 pounds
    and my summer clothes never fit better. Numerous health experts and celebrities
    have also endorsed thus unique extract known as garcinia cambogia.
    If you take prescribed drugs against diabetes, please check your blood sugar level regularly.
    Another problem is, far many people on a western diet the majority of the sugars they consume are in the form of high-fructose corn syrup.
    Pure garcinia cambogia is an eating supplement that has created a buzz among people due to its various health benefits that have been proven by
    several clinical trials.
