Names Rae Solomon and Rob Duncan Live in Cherry Hill; near Seattle University on Capitol Hill Occupations He’s in grad school for social work; she does interiors at Lair Design, and together they do real estate development Number of guests 115 Wedding-day weather Very hot Wedding budget Initially it was $50,000, but they ended up spending a bit more; he had to convince her to have a big to-do Wedding theme They didn’t really have one, but there was a ’40s vibe going on, partially inspired by her custom-made dress and their band Cultural elements She’s Jewish, he’s not, but they incorporated many Jewish wedding traditions and added their own vows Processional song “Come Go with Me,” by the Beach Boys, which was cued as soon as they kissed Reception menu favorites Cedar-roasted porcini-crusted halibut with truffled wild mushroom cream sauce and thyme-scented potato gnocchi in brown butter, served family style First dance “Oh Boy” by Buddy Holly Favors Donations made to the Reading Tree and the Children’s Reading Foundation in honor of her mother Favorite reception moment The band kept everyone dancing right up until the end of the night when they brought the couple on stage and Rae lit the trumpet player’s horn on fire. He kept right on playing. Advice for other couples Get your photographer to stay through the final moments of the party, and don’t skip the wedding planner The day in three words Festive, dramatic, intimate Honeymoon Israel, Egypt, and Hungary
