Alida + Will | The Hall at Fauntleroy Wedding

Wedding ceremony and reception at Hall at Fauntleroy in West Seattle.

We knew Alida+Will were gonna thow a kickass, unique wedding when we met up with them for an engagement session at Top Pot Donuts, but we had no idea just how huge their awesomeness could get.

A list, in no particular order:

* Alida made all the bouquets and boutonnieres out of sheet music.
Will’s face during the first look. Gaaaaahhh.
* They held a toast in the middle of their ceremony. No, not with booze (that’ll come later), but donut holes hidden in small boxes given  out to their guests beforehand.
* They forwent the candle for their unity ceremony, instead opting for two bottles of not-yet-aged whisky from the lovely folks at Woodinville Whiskey Co. A+W poured both bottles into a tiny barrel, meant to age the delicious stuff for 6 months, after which they’ll  rebottle and share together on their anniversary.
* A ring warming ceremony (which is something we are LOVING seeing this year) that had so many participants it pushed the ceremony  well into the dark hours.
* Their favorite taco truck catered the reception.
* Their running bibs served as table numbers.
* Rootbeer floats late in the reception, featuring local brewery Snoqualmie Falls‘ delicious soda.

And while that sounds like a lot of random stuff, the coolest part of the day was that each one of these little things was so inherently THEM. They’ve challenged each other through marathons and triathlons, celebrated said triumphs with whiskey and donuts (yup!) and are so much fun that all the funky awesome aspects of the day fit them perfectly. Alright, fine, we’ll shut up and let you look at the photos. Congrats, you guys. //J+A
