We may never get over the Pacific Northwest. From the rocky coastlines to nearby mountains, its natural beauty gets us every time. And that’s before we even begin to consider the local culture and tendency towards good food and tasty beverages. But beyond our love affair with this particular part of the world, Tacoma and its surrounding area is, in our clearly biased opinions, a perfect place to plan a wedding. And just to help get the process rolling, we’ve got some of our favorite weddings topics to talk about: cakes, pictures, and pretty dresses.
Wedding Cakes in Tacoma
Although we do admit that finding a wedding venue in Tacoma is probably best prioritized over cake, sometimes the sweet tooth must be satisfied. For the traditional cake (and subsequent cake cutting ceremony) we recommend Pioneer Bakery – a “true scratch bakery.” Elegant wedding cakes are created here and can be made to complement any style of décor and personal taste. The bakery’s selection of standard and premium cake flavors is extensive and awfully tempting. On the cupcake front, Hello, Cupcake has completely caught our eye. Possibly because their current flavor of the month is a Root Beer Float cupcake, but it doesn’t hurt that the shop’s dessert presentation is absolutely dreamy.
Wedding Photographers in Tacoma
Looking for a wedding photographer anywhere in the Pacific Northwest? Let’s just talk about Ryan Flynn for a few minutes and call it a day. All about telling the complete story of your wedding day, this photographer has been shooting weddings professionally for more than five years and his work actually takes our breath away. The natural lighting, the raw emotions, the personalities – it’s all captured beautifully in images that can be cherished forever.
Tacoma Wedding Dresses
The Pacific Northwest’s oldest bridal boutique, The Wedding Bell is also one of the area’s best. Exclusively dedicated to brides, the shop has the largest selection of bridal gowns in the region and carries designs by some the most well-known names in the business. Bridal consultants here are utterly focused on you as the bride and your vision for the day, and will walk with you throughout your search for the perfect dress. We love the shop’s attention to detail and personal approach.
