NAMES Whitney White and Ryan Page LIVE IN Alki Beach OCCUPATIONS She’s a floral designer; he’s a legal clerk WEDDING-DAY WEATHER Mostly sunny; it started raining as soon as they were done taking photos WEDDING TIME 4:30 NUMBER OF GUESTS 50 SPENT/SPLURGED Most of their budget went to the sit-down dinner and their wedding-day fashion THEIR APPROACH TO WEDDING PLANNING She’s been looking at wedding magazines since she was a little girl, but this was better than her childhood dreams because it reflected both of their ideas and input FIRST VENDORS HIRED Florist and photographer NIGHT-BEFORE ACTIVITIES They each just wanted to spend as much time as possible with their best friends from near and far WEDDING MOOD Casual and low-key, but elegant and classic, too MOOD INSPIRATION They’re history lovers who are drawn to rituals and the ancient Roman tradition of all-out merrymaking HOW THEY MADE THE CEREMONY THEIR OWN Their vows incorporated literature, folktales, mythology, and the symbolic broom-jumping tradition, as well as an Apache blessing that is indicative of their universal, loving spirituality FLOWERS The bride’s former coworkers from Dallas-based Bows and Arrows flew in to collaborate with the local designers; the two parties met for the first time on the day of the wedding RECEPTION MENU A family-style spread of salad, antipasta, and brick-oven pizzas FAVORITE MENU ELEMENT Their own heart-shaped pizza DESSERT Her mom made mini Italian cream cakes for each table IF THEY KNEW THEN WHAT THEY KNOW NOW She would have hired a wedding planner; having someone oversee the details would have taken a lot off her plate THE DAY IN THREE WORDS Warm, sacred, nature-based HONEYMOON A cabin getaway on the California coast

 

We wanted the images to reflect how effortless and inviting the day was; to do that, we had to be everywhere and nowhere at the same time.
