How thrilling it is to see my brides and grooms grace the pages of the beautiful local wedding press. Seattle Metropolitan Bride & Groom is a stunning local publication that I look forward to receiving the twice a year it comes out. Check out the online version of the article HERE!
Summer 2011 clients Chris & Suz came to me wanting a wedding that celebrated all of the “childhood summer fun” that pleased them. It involved three locations and every member of the wedding (yep, everyone) biking from location to location, including the bride in her dress!
Sherbet colors abound, decorated bikes, balloons along a pathway and an ice cream truck post-ceremony were just some of the highlights of this delightful wedding. Guests started by gathering at the Dutch Bike Co. in Ballard to decorate their bikes (and pedicabs) while also having a quick “biker’s etiquette” lesson and a champagne toast. Then everybody rode to a spot off of the Burke-Gilman Trail in Fremont (just under the Fremont Bridge) for the intimate ceremony and Molly Moon’s Ice Cream to garner energy for the ride back. From there they rode back to Ballard and ended at the Volterra Drawing Room for a cocktail-style reception with the DJ Alex Ruder from KEXP spinning the bride and groom’s favorite tunes. The room was decorated with market flowers and a collection of haiku poems the bride and groom had written to each other over the years. The groom’s triplets had also written poems & songs to the bride & groom to join the gallery (and of course, read them to the crowd for a high point of the evening!).
I hope you enjoy this wedding as much as I did – I know Chris & Suzanne (and the kids!) will have a happy life together just by the spirit shown on their lovely wedding day!
