I feel extremely fortunate to be asked back to Seattle’s 5 star charity event Get Hitched Give Hope. Every fall for 9 years now, this group of wedding professionals creates the most beautiful and entertaining live auction party for engaged couples, touting the slogan: “Get gorgeous goods while giving back”! The organization is 100% volunteer run, driven, and sponsored. Proceeds go to Dream Foundation and Young Survival Coalition to help carry out final dreams and provide support for survivors. Guests attend a fancy theme party at the Four Seasons with tasty food, drinks, desserts, and probably 5 unique photo booths! The whole night is inspiringing, and clients get services they need for their event, at a great price for a great cause.
Jessica bought my package in 2015 and I can not tell you how excited I was that she was planning a Winthrop wedding. If you live in Washington, you know Winthrop is a magical place.
While planning photography with them, I knew it would be a unique experience, exploring the fun personalities of this couple. Here’s a few I learned:
- Adam likes to scare Jessica and take her picture doing it. He also is hilarious and has too many bromances to keep track of.
- They are into Star Wars for sure.
- Alcohol does in fact help you with dance moves.
- People who give have the best hearts, and real sense of what a joy it is to celebrate life.
I will always remember this wedding weekend, as it was also a special family trip. Craig helped me shoot, and my teens got a much deserved break from city scenes and school. Winthrop scenes are so good for us.
The coolest end to this story, is that Adam and Jessica will be at this years auction also! It’s November 10th at 6pm.( tickets!) I get to see them enjoy another night of giving/eating/dancing, this time as newlyweds!
