Sullivan-Riener Wedding on August 20, 2011

By | August 22, 2011

I photographed the wedding of Jennifer Sullivan and Jerry Riener this past Saturday. Jennifer is a crime reporter at the Seattle Times, Jerry is a police officer and they met on the job seven years ago. Together, they own Guardian Cellars, a winery in Woodinville, WA. The ceremony and reception were at the Palace Ballroom in Belltown, where the wine flowed all evening!

First look at Hotel Andra.

Only a Seattle couple would stop for coffee before the ceremony.

Thanks to Ed Sauer for loaning us his classic Mini-Cooper

We stopped by Luly Yang for a quick touch up and look who's dress was in the window!

The flower girls and ring bearer wait for their cues.

A last minute adjustment for the bride.

The room was filled with beautiful table settings.

Wonderful Washington wines were served.

A 3-2-1 Photo Booth was a big hit during the evening.

Tom Douglas, Seattle celebrity chef and owner of Palace Ballroom, dropped in to check on the newlyweds.

We attempted a shot as the monorail passed overhead. The crowds in Belltown on a Saturday night enjoyed the show!
