Erick & CB's Homerun!!

Erick & CB met at the baseball park in between games and immediately hit it off.  Both of the grooms are in competitive men's baseball leagues here in Seattle. Baseball was the first thing they knew they had in common, but there commonalities didn't stop there!

I'm going to try and spare you all the MANY baseball analogies that I want to intertwine into this blog. I'm afraid I'd strike out with my readers (aaah, get it!?)...ok, back to the grooms!! These two were so wonderful to work with! They wanted a modern wedding with soft colors, a thoughtful ceremony and a rock'n dance party. And boy howdy did they get it! The wedding was so them and they had such a great time - it was wonderful to be a part of it and to watch it unfold!

They chose Hotel 1000 as their ceremony & reception location. It was the perfect modern space for their vision. Erick's good friend Lanett Franko of Lovely Lulu Photography flew in from MN to shoot the wedding.

One of my favorite parts of their big day was that their teammates painted 12 baseball bats white and lined the aisle with them for a fantastic exit! Each bat had their initials and wedding date printed in blue on the handle. Such a thoughtful surprise from their friends! 

Both Erick & CB are art enthusiasts and so during there ceremony they created a blended piece of art using a blank canvas and two shades of blue paint which now hangs in their home.

Each dinner table was named after a Seattle landmark, the grooms sat at the Space Needle. The guests couldn't wait for the party to begin and so they made dinner a show in and of itself! Tables had sing offs, guests stood on their chairs and sang to the couple - it was hilarious, heartfelt and so fun!!

Morphy's Cake baked their four tier vanilla and chocolate cake and Kara from The Sweet Side created their dessert display. Guests were able to nibble on cheesecake shooters, cake pops, dipped pretzels and macaroons throughout the evening.

I want to thank Erick & CB for letting me be a part of their big day! Their one year anniversary is coming up next month - congratulations you two!!
