An outdoor wedding in Washington, the weather could go any which way, right?!? July 12, 2014 hit 100° for Susan and Peter’s wedding. It was HOT, but that didn’t matter. Susan and Peter were ready to get married and have the wedding of their dreams!
Susan and Peter got dressed on-site and were troopers in the heat taking phots with their bridal party and families, all around the farm.
The ceremony and reception were held at The Bybee Blueberry Farm in North Bend. The ceremony had been planned to be held outside of the tent and even with the hot sun blazing that is where it was held. The spot for the ceremony has a beautiful unobstructed view of Mt. Si and that is what Susan and Peter wanted. It was a quick ceremony, but very sentimental and heartfelt.
Under the big white tent was where the reception space was set. Guest tables were adorned with cream tablecloths, a burlap square, a mason jar wrapped with burlap and filled with purple and white flowers and a small frame that asked guests to facebook and instagram photos of the day. At each place setting was a small kraft bag that had been hand stamped and stuffed with a homemade cookie. Just a little thank you for celebrating the day with Susan and Peter. Susan and Peter chose to have a small sweetheart table for themselves.
Guests enjoyed a yummy spread of American food with the option of Thai food as well. Following dinner, were toasts from the wedding party and parents and then onto the cake cutting. It was a beautiful cake with an array of different desserts for the guests to choose from.
While guests enjoyed dessert, the couple shared their first dance. A very sweet few mintues between the new husband and wife. Susan then thought we were having a 20 minute break before we started the rest of the traditional events. Little did she know, she was in for a meaningful surprise. Peter had put together a touching video that he wanted to share with her.
After the video, a short break followed before the bouquet and garter toss. Although the tossing crowds were small, they were all in!
Then the party begin. While it was pretty hot for people to really get down with their dance moves, everyone still was having a great time. Catching up, laughing, having some drinks and a few that busted some moves. Susan and Peter ventured off with their photographer for a few more perfect photos.
Congratulations Susan and Peter. Despite the crazy hot weather, it was a beautiful wedding and as I said that day, you two are CHAMPS! Also, I JUST found out they are expecing a little one this month (October 2015) so congrats to that as well!!
