Funky Tugboat Wedding Mashup
Sitting off the wharf off MOHAI in South Lake Union Park in Seattle is a magical world of old ships with diesel engines and steam whistles. One of these boats is particularly charming, so charming that it is a movie star. Tugboat Annie, from the 1933 film by the same name, is actually called the Arthur Foss and at over 128 years it has seen many lives besides being a movie star including service in WWII. Today it’s owned and maintained by the nonprofit Northwest Seaport.
Nicolle and Patrick wanted their wedding portraits a la style of a tugboat wedding. They didn’t want all the “fuss” but instead we replaced it with with”Foss”, the Arthur Foss that is. Although the boat can hold up to 30 people with enough room for catering and decorating, it was just the three of us with free reign of the decks and engine room.
Nicolle and Patrick met up with 20 or so friends in Discovery Park (not pictured) immediately after this photo session to tie the knot on Magnolia Bluff overlooking Puget Sound. These two may not be from Seattle, but they sure did it Seattle style in the heart of Seattle.
