At its core, Amber and Matt's wedding was an homage to their origins. They met through mutual friends as college freshmen at the University of Washington, but didn't truly connect until they were on the other side of their undergraduate years, in the spring of 2012. The couple knew their nuptials would be held in the Pacific Northwest; the region holds their history.
After Amber and Matt chose their venue, the Center for Urban Horticulture in Seattle (which happens to be located near the University of Washington, where it all began) to hold their October 12, 2019, event, Amber started searching for a florist who could help her achieve the harvest-themed, foliage- and fruit-filled celebration she envisioned. They crafted a romantic event that paid homage to the season and to their beginnings, thanks to a surprise visit by the University of Washington marching band and, later, an after-party at their favorite college dive bar.
