A special note from Sean, the wedding photographer:

Liberty and Shane wanted a stunning winter Seattle City Hall wedding with their close friends and family and their newborn son. After a horrible week of downpours, atmospheric rivers, and torrential rain, they were worried about getting outdoor photos. Thankfully, they lucked out on the only sunny evening that whole week!

They spent their afternoon strolling around the city, and got some photos in front of the Seattle City Hall sign. They met up with their friends, family, and their son before their appointment. They watched the sun set from the hall and said their vows during blue hour in front of the judge. They spent the evening afterwards celebrating their big day!
