Recenter & Enjoy Your Big Day
From the Bride: On the wedding day I cared about very few things other than celebrating the unity of my best friend and myself. I spent much of the engagement process learning to recenter my thoughts so that come the wedding day all the planning and organizing would subside and I could simply be a bride on her one and only wedding day.
Support Small Business
We are passionate about supporting small businesses in the city we love- so we did our best to use local vendors. Therefore many of the people we interacted with throughout this process were from the Seattle area and became good friends by the end of our 13 month engagement.
Family Reunion Wedding
My husband Denver is from Arizona and we lived the last four years in California, so my favorite memory of the wedding day was having all our friends and family from across the states come together in Washington to celebrate the happiest day of our life thus far.

Knowing that we wouldn't be able to put ample money towards everything, we chose to prioritize where our money would be spent. We came to the conclusion that we wanted our money to go towards those tangible items we would walk away from the day with (ie- photography and videography). Capturing the emotions of that day on film was deffinitely worth spending money on for us.
That being said here is a basic break down of our budget-
Food/ dessert- 800
Espresso bar- 550
Bridal gown and accessories- 2800
Groom suit and accessories- 500
Stationary (save the dates/invites/thank you)- 900
