Names Addie Schroeder and Matt Brown Live in Issaquah Highlands Occupations She’s a sales representative for First American Title and Escrow; he’s in business development for Gene Juarez Salons and Spas How they met At Starbucks; they were introduced by a mutual friend What attracted them She loved his big personality, he loved her big hair A date they’ll always remember Their first, walking around the Highlands neighborhood for hours getting to know one another Wedding-day weather Sunny and warm followed by light showers during the ceremony Wedding-day theme Vintage romance, inspired by the location: a 1914 bungalow in a natural environment Colors Gold, brown, fuchsia, and vintage blue Number of guests 135 Wedding budget They had an idea of what they wanted to spend, but surpassed it. It was well worth it. Family remembrance It was important to the bride to honor family members who had passed on, so they had a moment of silence during the ceremony and saved front-row seats with a guitar for one grandfather, a rose for her grandmother, and a golf club and glove for another grandfather Nontraditional elements Instead of a guest book, the couple opted for a wishing tree—and they also had a vodka tree Flowers Large, lush bouquets of hydrangeas and garden roses Reception menu Beef canapés, crab cakes, bruschetta, halibut, and roasted vegetables Dessert Cupcakes and a small triple-coconut cake Three words to describe the day Romantic, beautiful, perfect Honeymoon Grand Wailea, Maui, Hawaii
