Joseph & Sophia

What a whirlwind this weekend has been! On Friday night, I rocked the Main Stage at Watershed Festival for 25,000 country-music-lovin’-rednecks, and on Saturday night, I was back in Seattle mixing Pop, R&B, and Hip-Hop for Sophia, Joseph and 100 of their closest family and friends at Bell Harbor International Conference Center.

Everyone had a great time celebrating Sophia & Joseph’s marriage! And three of my favorite vendors were also there: Tamara from Simply by Tamara Nicole and Jeff & Jennifer from f7 Photography! (All three of them have great personalties and always do a superb job! The behind-the-scenes coordination at weddings is always better when I’m around vendors I enjoy working with!)

Joseph & Sophia also asked me to do some lighting design for the venue. After doing a site visit to get measurements and brainstorm some ideas, we opted to wash out all the walls, and add the finishing touch of the monogram display above their head table. As usual, f7 photography captured it perfectly.
