Two weeks ago we flew across the country to attend two of our best friends wedding. These two friends names are William and Lia and they are some of the most lovely people you could know. A year ago they made the move from Brooklyn to Seattle and this was the first time we saw them since then. It’s a understatement to say they have been missed here in Brooklyn by us and others.
The wedding was at beautiful Chaser Farms which is located on Vashon Island. To get to the Farm you need to take a ferry which is a pretty ride by itself. Once you get to the Farm you basically want to move in. It’s pretty much my dream house, one large open modern home with two giant kitchens, a big yard that stares into trees and a farm full of sheep and goats for me to befriend. And when you look up at the sky, you see stars. I’m moving in Chaser Farms. You will be expecting me tomorrow.
Here is a photo journey to Seattle.
Now it’s reception time so find your name on the list and come around back!
Dessert was amazing. I kiddingly (not really) told Matthew to get me a dessert of every kind to try. Imagine my surprise when I came back to the table and found this. The boy knows the key to my heart… cake! Do you see that brownie in the bottom? It was so good. I went back for another. And another (just kidding, not really).
Matthew and I disappeared into the farm for a little bit to talk to the animals and carefully watch our step. If you read this blog then you know how I’m a bit romantic about having a farm so we just spent a few minutes here to enjoy it.
The first dance inside.
And not wedding related, but a few more pictures to share on our trip to Seattle.
We got woken up one morning by some birds chirping outside the window. I woke up, grabbed a carton of raspberries and stood in the grass. Birds! Grass! I know to some people this isn’t unusual but to me it’s so romantic and special. Sometimes I miss these little things.
We stopped at a coffee place on the way to the wedding but who cares about the coffee when they have a wall of tea like this! This was probably about 1/4 of their selections.
A few people recommended we go to Pike Place Market. If you are from there please don’t frown by this tourist hot spot but I really liked it there! There was so much delicious food, fresh vegetables and flowers! The flowers! They sold the most giant bouquets for $5 and $10. They were gorgeous and colorful. I’ve never seen flowers for that price in my life. If we weren’t leaving the day after I would have bought some! While at the Market we got some snacks…
We stopped at Daily Dozen for a assortment of donuts. Unfortunately there was no sprinkled ones in here but maybe next time! The donuts were hot and delicious. They reminded me of fair/carnival food as they were crispy. They don’t defeat my beloved Dough donuts in Brooklyn but these were still super yummy.
