Real Wedding

Names Kate Gebert and Nick Harmer Live in They’re house hunting Occupations She owns Hum Creative, a graphic design studio; he’s the bass player in Death Cab for Cutie How they met They’re both Seattle natives, but they met in Providence, Rhode Island, when she was in grad school and he was on tour Date they’ll always remember They met for coffee and then spent the next year waiting to be in the same city Wedding-day weather Very rainy Number of guests 150 Wedding budget $50,000 Wedding-day theme She designed an anchor logo for them, but they didn’t really have a theme. They just wanted the evening to feel like a well-considered, elaborate dinner party Colors Gold, gray, and pink Décor details They prefer plants to flowers, so they opted for natural arrangements of succulents and moss Floral details In lieu of boutonnieres, the groom made medals for each of his groomsmen Favorite ceremony moment When guests lit and held candles during the vows Best reception dish Tray-passed bahn mi sliders and fries as a late-night snack Musical elements Chris Pierce performed “Slow Life,” and Ben Gibbard and Zooey Deschanel sang a cover of “I Don’t Want Control of You” by Teenage Fanclub Unexpected element A little rain is always expected, but they had full-on thunderstorms. The sound of the downpour on the venue’s roof, however, made the night all the more romantic and warm. If they knew then what they know now They would do it all exactly the same The day in three words Anxious, beautiful, perfect Honeymoon Zihuatanejo, Mexico
