Family is often fabulous, loving and helpful when planning your wedding. Still, when it comes to setting the tone of your Big Day, your wedding party matters! If you want a wild and crazy dance party, avoid inviting only your shy friends to be maids. If you want “class”, having your scantily clad cousin as your maid of honor, while exciting, might alter the desired effect. Is it a family affair? Including all 12 nieces and nephews is an endearing way to be all inclusive, and adds just the right amount of chaos to inspire any photographer.
From THIS photographer’s perspective, the more the merrier in your wedding party. Having said this, I only had my best friend of thirty years stand up with me. But I’m not talking about MY OWN personal preference for intimate, cozy family and closest friend gatherings. I’m talking about what makes for entertaining, energetic moment photographs. Those lovely intimate, cozy shots are for another post…
Several photos below were featured in Grace Ormonde Wedding Style Magazine, and Seattle Bride Magazine.

Unable to turn off the shrieking fire alarm this energetic Hindu wedding party was thrilled to ride the fire trucks. I love Nat and Mamatha’s go-with-the-flow attitude. These two are fabulous to work with. Such a colorful, eventful wedding!
With a stunning Luly Yang gown and Dolce & Gabbana accessories, this wedding was filled with style!
Even a posed shot of this wedding party shows their boundless energy. Snoqulamie Ridge Golf Club, once again, was a mighty scenic setting for this high-styled wedding.
