Hollywood meets SODO at Multicultural Wedding

I had the pleasure of photographing Quisha and Kellie Galloway's wedding earlier this summer. Their ceremony and reception were held at WithinSODOOne of the brides, Kellie, totally had the old Hollywood glamour look down, with her hair curled in cascading waves, and lips painted a siren red. She looked like an updated version of Elizabeth Taylor crossed with Jane Russell. She told her bride, who was wearing a dapper vest and bow tie, "This is our movie."

WithinSODO's roof deck provided a cool space for pre-wedding photos with a view of the Seattle skyline. Elements from various cultures were incorporated, with the couple jumping the broom at the end of their ceremony and doing the dollar dance at the reception. Throughout it all, Quisha and Kellie were radiant, and their happiness is clearly obvious in these photos.

 With her perfect red lips and raven hair, this bride reminded me of classic screen star Elizabeth Taylor.
