Lamar and Natalie Neagle spent a stylish afternoon exploring the Kimpton Palladin Hotel and Seattle's urban ambience, captured with an aura of retro glam by photographer Britt Jezak. As a prominent player on the Seattle Sounder's Soccer team, Lamar is no stranger to Seattle's gorgeous landscapes and Natalie joined him to create a styled depiction of bridal portraits that combined trendy pops of vintage with contemporary style and allure. The Kimpton Palladin Hotel sat a refined backdrop featuring an array of spaces to explore from the bar to the quintessential elevator photo moment. To start the day off, Natalie prepped in a fun pair of white pajamas before changing into a gorgeous strapless gown and heels sustainably sourced from Brides for a Cause, accessorized with a dramatic jeweled necklace. Lamar's look for the day channeled black tie with a classic tux and bowtie, which brought a timeless cohesion to the shoot and allowed for floral and design details to venture into more retro styles. A highlight piece of the day was a cake crafted by Butter Half Seattle, which was a trendy one-tiered confection with opulent old-school piping details. Florals by Karrie Michelle Floral Design kept things crisp and pristine in hues of ivory and white, featuring varieties of roses and orchids. A detour to the bar kept Lamar's glass literally full with delicious creations from the Palladin Hotel, featuring infusions of color and texture. No hotel shoot is complete without the classic elevator and hallway pictures, which showcased our couple embracing their fun-loving spirits adorned with heart-shaped glasses. Serenades by saxaphone player Tim Staro created background music that channeled classic jazz and modern glitz. For the final touches, a classic car from Steve Hubbard awaited our loved ones outside of the hotel, where they hopped in for an epic series of photos set amongst Seattle's streets.
