Wait until you see the interactive puzzle game at this books & RPG wedding

Our wedding was VERY unapologetically us. I love books and reading, my husband loves D&D and roleplaying, and we both love puzzles and escape rooms — so our wedding encompassed all of it. Everywhere we could infuse a bit of flavor to fit these themes, we did. From my bridesmaid's book-bouquets and the groomsmen's d20 boutonnieres, to our wedding arch made of repurposed books, to the actual puzzles guests could solve.

Amie and Michelle’s original plan was to elope in a daffodil field, but instead they opted for a relaxed ceremony in the heart of Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood where personality and expressiveness outweighed decor and tradition. Capitol Hill has a lot of pride around its rich LGBTQ culture and history, so it just made sense for them. The ceremony and reception itself took place at Sole Repair, which is a stunning window-lit urban venue and fit their aesthetic perfectly. Just wait until you see the surprise unicorn first look!

Christine and Eric had a glorious wedding day that was edgy and modern and full of amazing fashion choices. Eric’s burgundy suit, though… GAH. Amazing.
