Seattle Trip & Wedding Recap


John and I got home from Seattle late Saturday night. It was a quick trip – Thursday through Saturday – but super fun!

John and I arrived at around 1PM, got our rental car, checked in to our hotel, and unpacked. We then headed downtown to Pike Place Market (separate post coming soon on that!) and afterward checked out the Queen Anne Farmer’s Market.

A mobile coal fired oven!


We got a smoothie from the Juice Peddler – the blender is attached to a bike and you pedal to make your own smoothie! How eco-chic! John pedaled his heart out and we enjoyed our smoothie in the downpour.

Later that night we were off to Matt & Danielle’s rehearsal dinner. The rehearsal went smoothly and they decided last minute to pull the wedding inside because Friday looked like rain. It is Seattle after all. Sidenote: We were there for 3 days and saw the sun for a total of 2 hours. I love, LOVE Seattle but could never live there.

The happy couple: Matt & Danielle

Yup, there was a bear. It was hilarious and awesome (and the bride’s brother).

Time for cupcakes! They were from Trophy Cupcakes and were out of this work. My coconut snoball one was sweet and cakey but not too rich. Plus, how cute, right?

The groom’s party all took off their button down shirts during the reception to reveal superhero shirts!


All in all it was a wonderful time. The wedding was intimate, magical, and full of love. I can only hope for the same vibe on our wedding day. Congrats Matt & Danielle, I love you guys and wish you all the best!
