Names Cristin Malone and Harpur Davidson Live in Madison Park Occupations She does events and promotions at the Sorrento Hotel and Hunt Club Restaurant; he works in commercial real estate at O’Keefe Development Favorite date spot Voilà Bistrot How they got engaged While out to dinner at Canlis, she made a joke about how many people proposed there without knowing that that was his intent Wedding-day weather Sun, rain, wind, sun, rainbow, rain Number of guests 140 Wedding theme Regional destination wedding; guests were invited for a long weekend that took place five hours outside of Seattle. There was a pig roast and a talent show on Thursday; on Friday, friends and family enjoyed boating, tennis, fishing, and hiking; and that evening they had a big rehearsal dinner in the barn. After more recreation on Saturday, guests helped with setup before the early-evening wedding Favorite ceremony moment Her little dog Tom took refuge from the rain under her dress; she didn’t even realize it until after the vows. Dessert Instead of cake, they had 500 small financiers, French cakes made with brown butter and dipped in espresso-caramel sauce, made by her favorite restaurant Favors for guests Mason jar glass mugs with personalized gifts and emergency items for the weekend, and a map of the property with a schedule of the weekend’s events Signature detail The trumpet player; he played the theme song from The Godfather and led the guests to the reception area after the ceremony Advice for other couples Stretch it out; get people out of town. And don’t be afraid to get your dress dirty The day in three words Fast, surreal, comfortable
