Downtown Seattle Rooftop Styled Shoot with Kaleb Norman James Design

Sep 18

When one of your best friend is also your very favorite wedding designer, it’s basically like every day is Christmas.

When Kaleb mentioned us doing a styled shoot, I was 1,000% on board. If you haven’t seen his work, first – get your life together. Second, follow him on Instagram : @kalebnormanjames and just get lost for hours looking at the beautiful things he creates every weekend.

The styled shoot was planned for January 4th. Knowing Seattle, we were prepared for rain. But we got incredibly lucky with beautiful sunshine. Don’t let it fool you though, Madeline, our gorgeous model, was such a trooper because it was FREEZING.

The Hotel Sorrento in Downtown Seattle opened up their rooftop ballroom and outdoor space for us to use. Yessie Libby was our glam squad, and I just want her to help me get ready every day. BHLDN sent us two amazing dresses to use. Kaleb & his team created a table that I want to spend every meal eating at, along with a bouquet that gives me all of the heart eyes. Madeline Minkema could not have been a more perfect model for the shoot. Krissanna Elizabeth provided all of the invitations, menu cards, and paper goods.

The shoot was featured on Cake & Lace earlier this summer, and that was such a treat! To view the feature, click on this link :

These are truly some of my favorite images. Not only was I given the most beautiful things to photograph, there is something about shooting for fun that takes the stress off, and allows creativity to just flow!

Now, here are the images. I just want to jump into my computer every time I see one of these images. Love them so much!
