Ah yes, Remi and Dave! What a hip, fun, and B-E-A UTIFUL couple! Though these two met in San Francisco, where they currently live and work, they are originally from the Seattle area. As soon as they got engaged, they knew they wanted to bring all of their out of town friends to the Pacific Northwest for a memorable wedding weekend!
These cuties wanted relaxed vibes and a laid-back feel to their wedding day, so Dancing Fish Vineyard on Whidbey Island was the perfect choice. The venue included a transformed barn, as well as a small vineyard, bocce court, lawn games, and a rental house for the perfect weekend retreat! The intimate outdoor setting was perfect for their ideal mix of country and shabby chic aesthetic.
Remi was picture perfect in this vintage-inspired two piece gown accompanied by the most incredible bouquet from En Fleur Floral Design. And Dave looked oh-so-cool in his navy suit. Not to mention the bridal party, all in different earthy tones with their flowers adding the most beautiful pops of color. This could have been a photo shoot for a wedding magazine, am I right?!
Mother Nature left us guessing until the very last minute! Being Seattle and all, of course rain was in the forecast for the weekend, but lo and behold she decided to let the sun come out in full force that day. We ended up canceling our tent order and had an all outdoors affair in the gorgeous weather! Remi and Dave were married under a chuppah, designed and built by their friends as a wedding present, overlooking the winery's own vineyard.
After it was officially official, Remi and Dave snuck off to snap a few more photos while the lighting was just perfect. After a little photo shoot with the grapes, it was time to drink them!
The barn at Dancing Fish served as the perfect backdrop for their reception. Molly Jackson of En Fleur Floral Design, along with her husband, handmade the centerpieces-- small wooden boxes that held her colorful blooms. And they matched perfectly with the wooden table numbers that Remi found on Etsy! To complete the rustic look, we used natural wood chairs, classic white linens, and had the Seattle-based Chalk Boss design all of the signage on window panes and vintage chalkboards.
Guests drank Dancing Fish wines (yum!), enjoyed a family style meal, and had the most perfect summer time dessert-- pies from Whidbey Pies right on the island!
Guests danced the night away to the Blue Wave Band and had a blast. I think Remi's face says it all! After the reception ended, everyone was transported into town to continue the party with a nightcap. What a fun group and a perfect day!
Best wishes for a lifetime of happiness you two! Thanks so much for letting me join in on the fun. And thanks so much to all of our amazing vendors for pulling off this incredible fete!
