Hello friends! Meet Becca and Davey - they are so beautiful, I can barely handle it! This rad duo got hitched last August and I was lucky enough to be a part of their big day. These two are rockstars, literally- Becca is the violinist for the band RA RA RIOT and Davey is the drummer for Modest Mouse. Plus in addition to being awesome musicians, they own their own super cool soap company, ASH SOAP! It is amazing stuff - you should check it out! These two are obviously incredibly hip, just like their wedding.
As usual in Seattle, Mother Nature was being super sketchy on the morning of, but we decided to roll the dice and risk the rain. We ended up canceling the tent as it was being loaded into the truck, so of course it rained ALL morning! But by the time guests arrived, the skies had cleared and the rain thankfully stayed away for the rest of the day. Phew!
These two were SUPER casual about the whole day. They strung the outside lights together the day before and then they hung out together the morning of. They walked through the neighborhood before the ceremony so JennyJ could snap some sweet "first look" shots.
They held the ceremony and reception in Davey's aunt and uncle's backyard in Magnolia, which was freaking perfect!They have a billion kinds of foliage- from jungle lush to vineyard vines. Plus check out that view of Mount Rainier, the city skyline, and the Puget Sound! The guests really dug how absolutely gorgeous it was (as did I)!
Even after 10 years in the wedding biz, I'm still getting to experience wedding firsts. Becca and Davey were the first couple I've ever seen walk each other down the aisle. I thought that was pretty cool.
Becca and Davey were married by Davey's childhood rabbi, Rabbi James, and they said their vows under a chuppah surrounded by their friends and family. Guests had the perfect view of the couple as they said their "I do's" while looking on at the gorgeous backdrop.
After the ceremony, we transformed the backyard into the perfect reception space. In lieu of flowers, they did candle clusters for their centerpieces on the tables from Seattle Farm Tables, so the setting was very clean and simple. As the sun began to go down, the lights and candles really began to pop and everything looked so elegant and romantic.
Every bit of this wedding was so personal and intimate that it actually seemed like a really cool dinner party where a wedding happened rather than a "big wedding" feel.
After dinner and speeches, it was time to party and dance the night away! Everyone had a ball, especially the newlyweds!
I am such a lucky gal to have been a part of this one with these very special humans. Their wedding was truly as fun as they are, and in case you couldn't tell, that's pretty frick'n fun.
Cheers to the newlyweds! Thanks to everyone who was involved for making this one to remember!
