Real Wedding: Jake Bartholomy & Justin Goodman

July 31, 2011


Names Jake Bartholomy and Justin Goodman Live in Montlake Occupations Justin’s a physician; Jake’s a physical therapist How they met The old fashioned way—on Their approach to wedding planning Once they finally decided to have a ceremony they thought they could do it themselves with some setup and cleanup help, but they quickly realized they were in over their heads Wedding-day weather Perfect Wedding time 3:30 Number of guests 205 Wedding budget They spent 40 to 50 percent more than they planned to Wedding theme They simply wanted to create joyful memories, so they planned a regional destination event that would bring their loved ones together for two days Traditional elements Justin is Jewish, so they incorporated a glass-breaking ceremony and other elements from that lineage How they made the day their own Guests had their photo taken as they walked into the ceremony; those were printed and attached to a postcard by the time the reception began, and then used in lieu of a guest book. The head table was adorned with Japanese maple branches and plums from their home, and they had a Batman and Robin cake-topper. Recessional song “My Life Would Suck Without You” by Kelly Clarkson Favorite reception moment Their first dance—a purposefully cheesy “Every Woman in the World” by Air Supply—was taken over by a flash mob; later they both danced with their moms The day in three words Overwhelming, perfect, happy Honeymoon A 12-day bike trip in Italy with 12 friends
