Kristi + Cole: Seattle, Washington

Cole was once given the advice that if you know a girl for 10 years before marrying her, it will last forever. Well, much to Kristi’s dismay, he listened to this advice! Kristi and Cole are such a picture-perfect couple. There’s no doubt in anybody’s mind that they belong together.

Kristi and Cole wanted an elegant, industrial wedding and found the perfect venue not only for this feel, but also to hold their large 300 guest count. Hangar 30 became the home to host this soiree. The venue was draped off into three sections: ceremony, cocktail hour and reception.  Guest were welcomed with champagne as they headed into the ceremony site. The ceremony was auditorium style seating dressed up with the prettiest draping backdrop. Galvanized buckets filled with flowers lined the aisle. The large guest count held true with a large wedding party, equipped with grandma and grandpa as the flower girl and ring bearer. (And I’ve never seen a more excited ring bearer!)

The reception was a fun affair with a pizza truck, a Ben and Jerry’s truck, a photobooth with a custom-made flower backdrop, and lots of stellar dance moves. Instead of a traditional wedding cake, Kristi and Cole paid tribute to their Paris engagement with a Croquembouche Cake. They also incorporated this travel theme with their atlas guestbook.

Here’s to the next 10 years Kristi and Cole! Let your first 10 years of marriage be even better than the last 10 years of dating!
