Foss Waterway Seaport-Colette and Ravi’s Wedding
This is the beginning layout design for Colette and Ravi’s wedding album. Never mind the yellow triangles, it’s a Fundy editing thing. I really like how the album is turning out so far. I cannot wait to see the printed version, it’s going to be a true story book full of heartfelt memories for them to cherish always!
Foss Waterway Seaport Tacoma
Below is a description of how Colette and Ravi envisioned their wedding day at at Foss Waterway Seaport in Tacoma as taken from our questionnaire they filled out.
Q. We’d love to know more about your wedding plans, especially what you’re doing to make your wedding special or unique for you.
A. We are going to have a ‘flower parade’ of little kids…any young person who wants to be a part of our procession is welcome to, and kids will come in with streamers and handing out flowers to guests along the aisles. We have a huge wedding party, which we are referring to as our ‘Wedding Tribe’…the whole entrance procession will be huge and festive and probably to funky, dance-inspiring music.
We will be having our ceremony in a circular format. We will have a small platform in the middle of a large circular formation of chairs, with pillows on the ground around the platform for the kids to sit on to have a better view.
We will have a steel band play outside on the promenade during cocktail hour, while the room is flipped for the reception. We will have chalk art, games, and face painting – for kids and adults alike.
For dinner, we will serve burrito bowls. We’ll have an amazing DJ friend of ours fly in from Philly, who specializes in mixing funk/soul 45s. Dessert will be Mexican ‘paletas’ (super delicious popsicles: http://roamconference.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/paletas.jpg/).
Our wedding will be full of color, laughter, diversity, dancing, and funny, warm people. It will be a sort of reunion for several different social/family groups from around the country/world.
One of our biggest values is community and connection, and we will have several gatherings and activities throughout the week and the event to help bring people together and get to know each other so that the event is one big joyous unified celebration.
They described their wedding perfectly! This is exactly how it turned out.
Thank you to the vendors who made Colette and Ravi’s wedding so perfect!
