Welcome back to part two of Brooke and George’s beautiful wedding!
After the photos, it was time to get married! Brooke and George were married at the Epiphany Parish of Seattle Church where George was baptised. The ceremony was performed by the pastor Brooke grew up with in Olympia, Washington. The couple wanted both of their religious affiliations to be represented in the ceremony.
Brooke put together all of the reception decor herself. “As part of the décor at the reception I wanted to honour George and my parents and grandparents. We are lucky enough to not have any divorces in our family, and feel that our marriage will be strengthened by the examples that our family have shown us. To honour them we had a table set up with pictures from both our sets of grandparents and parents wedding pictures displayed for everyone to see.”
Brooke’s mother made red pottery roses for guests to take home as favors and Brooke scoured the Christmas clearance sales to find red vases. She ordered the flowers and had a friend put together the centrepieces the night before the wedding.
The cake, by Morfey’s Cakes, fit right into the plaid theme. With ribbon created from the leftover fabric of the bridesmaid’s dresses, Brooke and George chose a red velvet cake. Brooke enlisted the help of her co- worker (an art director at an advertising company) to help her design the invitations and stationery, which she then printed, stuffed and addressed herself!
Brooke and George used the champagne flutes (with a red trim) that George’s parents used at their wedding thirty years before.
“George and I took dance lessons for four months prior to the wedding and performed a personalized choreographed dance to L.O.V.E. by Nat King Cole. Our dance was a mixture of Walz, Fox Trot and Swing…..and of course ended with the fancy dip and kiss”
Congratulations Brooke and George on your beautiful tartan filled celebration! Thankyou for sharing your wedding day with us! Thankyou also to Kirk Mastin for sending over today’s photos!
