marina & matt// seattle courthouse elopement

marina-matt-sullivan-and-sullivan(130of193)_seattle wedding.jpgWe’re a broken record about a few things, but nothing more than how often we tell our couples to CHILL. OUT.  Everything will come together for your wedding if they just focus on what’s most important to them and let everything else work itself out.

Enter Marina and Matt: they emailed us a few weeks before their in-town elopement, wondering if we could pop on down to the courthouse and shoot their wedding? With a whirlwind job change to London coming up, these loves needed to get married stat. Hell yes we’d be there.

Marina found her Vera Wang gown a few days before the wedding at a second hand shop, and it happened to fit her perfectly, no big deal. We bopped down to the courthouse, got them married off on the rooftop, and took an hour to run around downtown Seattle before meeting back up with their families at Radiator Whiskey in Pike Place Market—the scene of their very first date. I mean come on, this is basically the dream wedding, and it all came together like a snap.

These two are the best example I have when we tell people that everything will work out and not to put any more stress on your wedding than you have to. The important thing is that you’re going to end the day married to your person—what else could really matter?

Ugh. Instagram captions. What the hell?

I've spent countless moments of my life staring at a blank instagram caption box. Try something - delete it. Put a quote in there - delete it. But I had a secret weapon... I'd just hand the phone to my wife. She's is a witty and wise firestorm of a woman and I love her for it. Apparently, so does instagram. Her irreverent, meandering, and poignant-as-hell captions have created a sense of community in our lives so that everywhere we travel, there’s usually someone willing to show us around (not to mention insta alone has literally put thousands of dollars in our bank account). So I made her sit down and explain what goes through her curly little head whenever her thumbs click away at her phone keyboard. Put your email below for her free guide on how to write insta captions that people actually care about and make the whole process (dare we say it) fun.. -Tim
