Stopping in Seattle for a rooftop wedding, then on to Kentucky for a donut reception

Seattle sunset

Sometimes a wedding can't all happen at once. That just means you get to have a kickass reception later, right? Heather and Jessica live in Kentucky, but they had a sweet rooftop wedding in Seattle last January. No one's denying that Seattle is, like, always gorgeous, but check out those sunset photos for the ceremony! I'd elope for that.

For their reception back home in Kentucky, Heather and Jessica busted out the fancy duds and got their party on with a larger entourage. Please note that the party included a dessert table exclusively of donuts. So many kinds of donuts. Currently awaiting my invitation to a wedding that does this.

  1. Love this Kentucky couple! I might be borrowing the doughnut bar idea- so easy but provides plenty of variety and looks adorable.

    2 agree
  2. I love this small wedding too! Looks very warm, welcoming & full of love! Small weddings are just as grand, full of love, trust & honesty!

  3. I love seeing this here! Their photographer, Christine, did our wedding when she was first starting out and did an amazing job! We ask her to drive 8 hours every fall to take our anniversary pictures because we've never found another photographer that offered the same talent, flexibility and value.
