About Washington State History Museum

Located in the heart of the Museum District in downtown Tacoma, Washington State History Museum is owned and operated by the Washington State Historical Society under the official approval of the Washington State Legislature. The museum, which opened to the public in August 1996, maintains a permanent exhibit about the history of the Pacific Northwest, and continually hosts temporary exhibits that further illuminate the history of the state of Washington. The design of this architectural masterpiece, the result of an architectural competition, was inspired by Tacoma’s historic Union Station and by the warehouses of the district. The museum’s rolling arches mirror the forms of the railroad terminal located to its immediate north, while its brick facing and the volume of the building match the warehouse buildings nearby. Its 200-seat outdoor amphitheater, where outdoor wedding ceremonies take place, is modeled after the dome of Union Station — turned upside down. WSHM is located right across the street from a Link light rail stop, providing doorstep delivery for wedding guests staying at the nearby Courtyard Marriott and Hotel Murano. It also serves as a gateway to the Bridge of Glass, which displays several art glass exhibits by Dale Chihuly and provides access to the Thea Foss waterway and the outdoor pavilions at Museum of Glass.

About Wallflower Photography

Wallflower Photography, located in Tacoma, Washington, about 30 miles south of Seattle, is one of Washington State's top wedding photography studios. Owned and operated by two award-winning wedding photographers, Laura and Scott Schoeggl, Wallflower Photography provides premium wedding photography services unmatched by all but the very best wedding photographers. They attribute their success to their expertise and commitment to quality in all three major facets of modern wedding photography: behind the camera, behind the computer, and in their wedding album and wall art design and materials. While photographing, Laura and Scott fade into the background, just like you would expect of a “wallflower.” From their two separate perspectives, they'll expertly cover your planned events — and catch fleeting moments and expressions that happen suddenly and then are gone. They'll create striking and romantic images of the bride and groom in a fun, efficient portrait session. And while you're honeymooning, they'll invest dozens of hours in their computer lab, enhancing your photos so that they become not just cool images, but works of art. Then they'll craft a beautifully designed custom album that will become a new family heirloom you'll treasure for years to come. Please contact Wallflower Photography for more information.
