It was February 2017 sunny but cold afternoon. Traffic in Seattle wasn’t surprising me with its density, but I was determined to arrive on time to my consultation with Mindi+Peter.
Mindi, a gorgeous girl with a kindest heart a person can have, was about to marry the love of her life – the most outgoing and loving Peter, who always liked surprising his fiancé. And, of course, the proposal was a carefully planned surprise as well, when Peter asked his friend to bring his guitar and play their song while the couple and all their friends were hanging out by campers in thick Northwestern woods.
He went down on one see and asked her to marry him. One of the friends was recording this once-in-a lifetime moment in Mindi+Peter’s life, which Mindi happily showed to me during consultation.
“My goal is make HER happy, to brighten her day with my surprises and to make her smile at my jokes” – One big romantic heart Peter has!
They wanted a classy wedding with a flair of 1920-1950s and chose Aerie Ballroom as their wedding venue. Peter and his gang were dressed and looking dapper in the stylish 1920s black pin-striped suits, black homburg hats, two toned shoes, and of course, the Groom gets a walking stick. The best dressed groomsmen ever!Their wedding color was burgundy, the color of fine wine, hence ladies’ dresses were in burgundy as well.
It was such a fun wedding, dancing, shedding happy tears, laughing, and dancing again. So many awesome memories were created that day!
At the end of the wedding, Peter surprised his wife with a classic car drive and a red carpet entrance to their honeymoon suite. Such a smooth move and a perfect start of their new life adventure together!!!
Congratulations, to Mr. and Mrs. Fredrickson! May your life always be filled with love and laughter, adventures and happy surprises.
