This was my first time shooting a wedding at the fabulous Monte Cristo Ballroom in Everett, Wa, and I was thrilled to be a second shooter for Genaro Photography. It is such a gorgeous venue! From the oak ballroom doors to the crystal chandeliers, this venue exudes elegance, and the bride and groom, Alexandra and Tyler, were perfect for these sophisticated surroundings. I was extremely impressed with the staff at this venue. They were very gracious and courteous, and easy to work with. I would recommend this venue to any bride and groom that are searching for an elegant venue for their wedding!
When the groom and groomsmen weren’t hanging out in the Groom’s Man Cave, where there is a foosball table among other things, they entertained themselves by watching the goings-on below from the balcony above.
The bride and groom each wrote personalized letters to each other, that they read while still not seeing each other before the ceremony. It was quite an emotional moment….
Having fun at a nearby park, while we did some photos of the bridal party.
I loved the purple and blue colors that were gracing the dinner tables. Those colors just added to the elegance of the event.
The guests really enjoyed watching the bride & groom playing the shoe game.
What a gorgeous couple!
At the end of the evening, the couple made their getaway in a vintage Chevrolet….
For their exit, the guests bombarded the couple with purple and blue pom-poms.
I sincerely hope this won’t be my last Monte Cristo Ballroom wedding to photograph! I loved this venue!
