Real Wedding: Imani Lawson & David Myers

Nautical Northwest Destination | May 18, 2012


Names Imani Lawson and David Myers Live in Bellingham Occupations She’s a health educator; he’s a model How they met At church; he pursued her for five years before she took him seriously Wedding-day weather Sunny with light clouds Wedding time 4:30 Number of guests 120 Their approach to wedding planning Most of their friends and family were out of town, so they felt a lot of freedom, and a lot of responsibility; they differed on many things but found solutions that worked for both of their needs and tastes Pre-wedding celebrations The ladies wined and dined around Bellingham via limousine; the guys barbecued and then went go-cart racing and indoor skydiving Wedding-décor vibe Vintage nautical Inspiration Her family has a beach house in Virginia; he loves sailing Favorite ceremony moment Their pastor, a longtime friend, roasted David during the ceremony; everyone got a kick out of it Favorite menu component The fruit, wine, and cheese cocktail hour that preceded dinner Unexpected element Because their wedding coincided with a Canadian holiday, there was a lot of traffic on the ferries that weekend, and many guests missed their boat; they had to delay the ceremony for an hour, which was fine because the wedding party was running behind schedule First dance song “At Last” by Etta James Favors for guests Lavender bath salts in sailing-themed packaging If they knew then what they know now She would have taken the week before the wedding off and not been so rushed; he would have planned to spend more time with people who traveled across the country to be with them The day in three words Beautiful, calm, joyous Honeymoon Greece

My dad’s father-of-the-bride speech was so touching; he called David and I his heroes, saying he has watched us maintain our integrity, pursue our dreams, and follow what we know to be true in our hearts.
