Spring is hands down, our favorite season. When the cherry blossoms start to show their delicate pink petals, one of the most beautiful locations to see them is at UW Seattle’s quad. With Japanese cherry blossoms lining both sides of the school’s quad, they draw crowds of visitors who want to admire the blooms. Michael and I share that same excitement for the cherry blossoms at UW. When we attended UW, we made a date out of walking to the quad and talking subpar selfies with the cherry blossoms every year. (This year, we’ve decided to offer cherry blossom mini sessions at UW and if you’d like more details and to reserve your own mini session, check out this post.)
Putting Everything Together
We kicked off cherry blossom season with one of our industry friends, Gen by putting together a cherry blossom wedding inspiration shoot. Gen is the owner of Infinity Weddings and Events by Gen and always does an amazing and thorough job! Gen took all of the reins on this shoot after I gave her a general direction of what I had in mind. She gathered all of the participants, including Devin of Good Things Floral Co. whom we’ve collaborated with before. Devin has a natural talent of bringing wedding visions to life with her floral creations. Just wait until you see her romantic bridal bouquet and unique boutonnière worn IN THE GROOM’S SUIT POCKET. *Mind blown*
Even before all of the recommendations to avoid crowds of people because of COVID-19, we planned this bridal shoot for a weekday morning at sunrise: the most ideal time to avoid people! We were fortunate to have a sunny morning, too, if you’re familiar with Seattle’s typical overcast mornings. Everything came together so beautifully! I couldn’t have asked for a better group of people to make this shoot happen. Happy scrolling through many of my favorites below!
