video // Amy + Matt wedding: Seattle, WA

The Heart Dept. had the distinct pleasure of capturing the nuptials of a bewitchingly beautiful couple, Amy Berkley and Matt Buechler. That’s a lot of b’s for a Tuesday morning but we alliterate when we’re excited. (To these b’s we should add brainy. Because they’re our two favorite immunologists. Germs, beware!) Matt and Amy obviously have a very devoted and effusive fan base of family and friends who adore them and would probably go to the ends of the earth for them — or, at the very least, go lawn bowling in the rain and build Rainier beer towers in their honor. The wedding ceremony and reception unfolded in the warm, inviting hall of Fremont Abbey, with Amy in some of the loveliest lace we’ve ever seen and Matt as polished and put together as a groom can be. We believe Seattle loves them so very much, it put on its best drizzle and feted them as only Seattle can — in the grey tableau of non-stop, relentless precipitation. Amy’s poor wedding dress took a soggy beating that day, but she glided radiantly through all rain like a champ, attended by her pageant of brightly-shoed bridesmaids and pop-art umbrellas. Every detail of this wedding was lush, bright, intentional and intimate — from bold pops of color in the groom’s shoelaces to Amy’s favorite red velvet cake to the sweet gesture of Matt and Amy pouring pitchers of beers for their guests. We savored every minute and tried to capture some of the eye candy via this wedding video. Disclaimer: they had a really cute flower girl you might recognize.
