Some of our favorite, favorite wedding clients come from referrals. Regina & Riley were one of these couples! She was a bridesmaid in Veronica & Alan's big day and we are so excited and honored that she wanted to work with us based on that experience. We adored their super intimate and personal wedding at Alderbrook Resort. Definitely one for the books!
We love their engagement story so much that we had to include it. From the bride: "Riley is a romantic at heart. He enlisted friends to create a scavenger hunt "sponsored by Lyft" for a friend and I, with the prize being hundreds of dollars in Lyft credits. Getting in/out of Lyfts en route, we had to take photos and videos. At the destination, the staff had envelopes with hints. Each San Francisco location was a milestone in our relationship: our first date, our first kiss, etc. It all lead to being proposed to under the Golden Gate Bridge and on the beach. Also, turns out Riley and his friend were following us around the entire time, so there's photos of us running around the city! These photos also served as our engagement photos - very sneaky!"
The day prior to Regina and Riley's fall wedding, the winds were howling and the rain was pouring down. It looked like their outdoor ceremony would have to move elsewhere (don't worry, we had backup plans on backup plans). Regina and Riley chose an incredibly beautiful backdrop for their ceremony in the round at Alderbrook Resort in Union Washington, so they knew they wanted to keep it all outside if possible. Luckily for them, the next day it was all blue skies and crisp air! The waterfront nuptials were performed by the groom's step mom as their closest loved ones (and their adorable pup!!) gathered around them.
The couple chose to inject their personalities into the day to really make it theirs through a unique guest book - folks signed old records! - centerpieces with photos of the couple, and a pie bar instead of the traditional wedding cake. And once the party got going, the bride changed into a killer short party dress so they could dance into the night! Don't miss the full feature on Apple Brides!
