Bess & Jess - Capitol Hill, Seattle

Oh my, where do I even start with this one?! Well, I guess it starts over a year ago, when I met Clare, Bess' (amazing) sister, and was lucky enough to become her wedding planner. Clare was a dream bride, and her wedding to Jacob was insanely fun and a pure joy to be a part of. Not too long after Clare and Jacob's wedding, Bess & Jess (who I had met and low-key become obsessed with at Clare's wedding) got engaged. *cue fireworks and heart explosions*
Fast forward a few Instagram interactions later, and the three of us were chatting like old gal-pals and I was on board to help plan their November 2017 wedding. It was a dream come true! 
Wait wait wait- November? That's right, their wedding was originally going to take place in November, but after the election, these two incredible humans reached out, saying they wanted to move the wedding up in order to spend more time fighting for what's really important. (!!!!) 
Thus began a whirlwind (and I mean that in the BEST possible sense) of planning for their perfect wedding that would include flowers from Pike Place Market, a cake THAT BESS MADE (plus a bunch of yummy cookies), a gorgeous park ceremony (with perfect weather- in March- in Seattle, and Bess' other wonderful sister Ellen officiating), a reception at a brewery, and oh yeah, A LOT of pizza. Later on the newlyweds would sneak out to go get an ice cream cone (like, honestly, could they be any cuter?), which happened to include walking across a few of Capitol Hill's rainbow crosswalks. COME. ON!
This one will go down in the books as one of my all-time favorites for oh so many reasons, the first two reasons being the incredible brides that I now have the honor of calling friends. Heart eyes forever.
