Frank & Hillary // Get Hitched Give Hope Couple of the year!

First of all, let me say that Frank and Hillary are the Get Hitched, Give Hope Couple of the YEAR!  :0)  Making Dreams come true with every vendor they hired!!  They are wonderful people, with the BEST families and the CUTEST son… I mean, little Mikey – look at him, ADORABLE!!  And now – I have to be honest here…it is TOO much fun when your best friends little sister gets MARRIED!!  The whole DAY is a party!!  Becca and I took EVERY opportunity to laugh our faces off with everyone we photographed.  Not to brag – but, we had the MOST fun!!  Starting at the Alexis hotel to get ready, sipping champagne and maybe a little whiskey from the camera flask! Meeting up at Gasworks park for a CHIIILLLY portrait sesh, and off to the Skansonia where there was the sweetest ceremony followed by the ULTIMATE dance party. We never wanted it to end!

Each year we donate a wedding to Get Hitched, Give Hope – a fancy shmancy party at the Four Seasons Hotel in Seattle where brides, grooms and all of their people get dolled up to enjoy bevvies, bites and amazing ambiance!! Most importantly, they get to hire their photographer, florist, planner, invitation designer, DJ, videographer, choose their jewelry maker, gown designer, custom suit fitting, I mean… they could LITERALLY plan their entire wedding in one night! BOOM.  BONUS is that every dollar they spend goes to charity!!  Yuuuuup!  Get Hitched, Give Hope is 100% volunteer and donation driven – we give as much as humanly possible to Dream Foundation and to Young Survival Coalition.  Making a HUGE difference in many peoples lives – AND you get to say that your wedding made many people’s dreams come true.  Win-Win-Win-Win!  Everyone wins!

Frank & Hillary hired the BEST folks in Seattle, and I think 90% of them are Get Hitched, Give Hope sponsors and donors!!  Thank You EVERYONE for working so hard and helping to make DREAMS come true!
