Names Rian Robinson and Dylan Neuwirth Live in Phinney Ridge Occupations She’s the owner and designer for Tuesday Scarves, he is a “posthuman contemporary artist” and a project manager at Chihuly Studio How they met Mutual friends pinned them as the perfect match Memorable date 24 hours in New York City spent waking up across from MoMA, followed by coffee and pastries, strolling through the Bowery and Little Italy, a sunset kiss on top of the New Museum, and topping off the day with a punk show at Webster Hall during a snowstorm backdropped by a full moon How he proposed He popped the question in person while simultaneously posting an image to Facebook of a neon sign he crafted after the David Bowie song “Be My Wife” Bachelor and bachelorette parties Separate trips to Portland, her renting a house with girlfriends, him staying at a hotel with his son watching TV and eating cheeseburgers Wedding time 4 Wedding-day weather Slightly overcast with ethereal afternoon light Number of guests 200 Budget $12,000 Wedding theme An emphasis on farm-to-table ideology balanced with Japanese styling and Southern hospitality Favorite ceremony moment Gold confetti floating down lit by Dylan’s neon backdrop and the light of the setting sun Reception menu Brick-oven pizzas, fresh salads, and antipasti platters First dance song David Bowie’s “Wild Is the Wind” Wedding cake They were indecisive, so they opted for seven different flavors: pistachio, coconut, hazelnut, house chocolate and buttermilk, chocolate with vanilla icing, and cardamom with espresso icing, all served by the duo themselves The day in three words Effortless, cinematic, spiritual If they knew then what they know now They wouldn’t have let their budget stop them from inviting more people Honeymoon Indonesia
