Ultimate Seattle Foodie Wedding

I don’t know if I have every planned a wedding that I felt fit a couple more perfectly. Every detail of this day was uniquely curated for Erika + Reese. I am beyond thrilled I was able to be a part of their wedding team.

Picture a warm and welcoming dinner party set on a lawn overlooking the Seattle skyline with endless local beverages. Their minimal style let the stunning views and historic house be the stars of the show. I would consider this a luxurious affair, but not because guests sat amongst ornate decor, in fact this couple kept the decor quite simple. The evening was luxurious because Erika and Reese created a space for their guests to linger and enjoy each other’s company. Their greatest wish was for guests to be present in the moment and share a phenomenal meal.

Glasses of rosé greeted the guests upon arrival. Cocktail hour offerings included an elegant oyster bar and a cider and cheese pairing station. We brought in as many of the couple’s favorite local foods and beverages as we could fit into one celebration.

I have heard a lot of toasts in my days and the Father of the Bride toast was honestly one of the best I have ever heard. Swinging back and forth between laughing so hard I was crying and tearing up because of the sweet sentiments. Hands down, this FOB deserves an award.

As the sun set, the glowing lights of downtown Seattle became an epic backdrop for an epic dance party. The couple and their guests danced the night away closing out the night with some Ellie Goulding hits at 1 a.m.
