Savanah and Reid’s Tacoma wedding day vibe was super chill and laid back. Savanah wore a gorgeous white and dusty blue dress while Reid looked amazing in a floral shirt and suit. There were a lot of personal touches throughout, DIY, as well as eco-conscious elements.
Just wait until you see the cake which had edible chocolate hedgehogs!

Allison’s floral accessories were stunning, from her succulent flower crown to her cascading bouquet, which included cabbages! See the rest of this garden wedding…
Ashley channeled a bohemian goddess from head to gold-toe Doc Martens, and Dave rocked his tux with his signature fully ringed fingers. The ceremony was performed by a family friend, surrounded by a small group of family and friends in the stunning atrium.
