#lexandmattrimony | 12.30.2015

There is so much I could say about this day, but it all boils down to an overwhelming sense of gratitude for every single person who played a part. Thank you to our incredible parents, supportive families, and forever friends for showing up and helping us celebrate. And thank you to our fantastic vendors who helped us build a day we’d long imagined.

Our brilliant and inspiring photographers (more on them at the end) handed over 1000+ gorgeous photographs so, as you can see, I seriously struggled to whittle down for this post. Here are (…a couple hundred of…) my favorite moments of December 30.

And now, a little about our wonderful vendors.

CarinaSkrobeckiPhotography_Alexa&Matt_0680

Coordination and design: Tara with Sugarcomb Weddings was our visionary right-hand woman throughout the entire process. She helped us dream up and execute on all the details and ensured our wedding day was 100% stress-free. We quite literally couldn’t have done it without her.

CarinaSkrobeckiPhotography_Alexa&Matt_0288

Photography: Carina Skrobecki with Amber Zbitnoff. These unbelievably talented women captured our day masterfully and made us feel so comfortable all along the way. I am deeply inspired by their work and work ethics and endlessly grateful for the collection of heirloom images they created for us.

CarinaSkrobeckiPhotography_Alexa&Matt_0198

Flowers: The moment I met Tess with July Floral (via FaceTime!), I knew we were in good hands. The wintery greens, the scents, and the wild romance she brought to our day was exactly what we were looking for.

CarinaSkrobeckiPhotography_Alexa&Matt_0730.JPG

Catering: Ravishing Radish and Seattle Cookie Counter. We wanted to serve our favorite foods, and these two delivered. Pizza, guacamole, and ice cream sandwiches reigned the day.

CarinaSkrobeckiPhotography_Alexa&Matt_0919.JPG

Music: The tunes were a huge priority for us, and after our phone consultation with Marc from Integral DJs, we’d found “the one,” so to speak. The dance floor was packed from beginning to end thanks to DJ D-Look, so much so that the groom sweated through two separate shirts.

CarinaSkrobeckiPhotography_Alexa&Matt_0892.JPG

Husky Alumni Band: These cats kicked off the party in the best way possible. An incredible gift from my aunts and uncles, I cannot recommend this enough for any purple-blooded couple.

Venue: The Fremont Foundry. Lighting: Green Light Events. Dress: Jill by Jill Stuart (jumpsuit) and Catherine Deane (skirt) for BHLDN. Suits: J.Crew (Matt’s jacket) and The Black Tux. Hair and makeup: Swink Style Bar. Earrings: Kathryn Elyse Jewelry. Hair piece: Maya* Austin.
