Today's Real Wedding of Lisa and Brent comes to us from the lovely ladies of One Thousand Words Photography. It was an intimate, personal and playful event that took place in the spectacularly rustic yet urban-chic venue, Sodo Park by Herban Feast.
Lisa and Brent took time before their ceremony to see each other and take pictures, and the results
are undeniable. Their photos are full of fun, and having that private
time together early in the day eased their nerves, and allowed them much
more time to mingle with guests during their cocktail hour.
Personal touches filled the day, like the flowers designed by Lisa's mother, the rings designed by a family friend, the personal vows they read during their ceremony, and the airplane groom's cake and seating cards that gave a nod to Brent's passion for being a pilot. The staff at Sodo Park and Herban Feast Catering worked seamlessly to turn the room over from the ceremony to the family style dinner to the dance party reception while keeping the guests entertained with delicious, organic drinks and snacks.
Lisa and Brent used a muted color palette of pale blue and khaki with a touch of
pink added in as an accent, and really took advantage of the unfinished
look of the wood beams and concrete floors inside Sodo Park to complete
their theme. This is such a gorgeous, natural look for any wedding, so if it's your favorite too, here are a few more ideas for an laid-back, rustic, blue and khaki wedding...
