madison & max // hotel ballard wedding
Sometimes everything comes together just right. The couple, the location, the weather, the families… every element of the day meshes and fires on all cylinders. That was Madison & Max’s Hotel Ballard wedding day. These swolmates have worked very hard to get where they are today, and in being so dedicated to themselves and their lives separately as well as together, they have pulled together a wonderful and supportive family of relatives and friends.
We set up the first look at the Hiram M. Chittenden Locks, AKA Ballard Locks among the diverse array of plant life.
The Hotel Ballard wedding hall has this awesome rooftop that overlooks Ballard Ave and Salmon Bay.
The quirky wedding party each on their own page. Sometimes you just can’t direct this kind of group posing but when it happen, it’s gold.
Total swolmates, their journey into fitness is partly what brought them together. Today, they are impressively strong and wonderfully fit, both of them. It’s an inspiration.
With beautiful glass walls you can get a wonderful view of the sunset over Magnolia and fun reflections like this!
