Alli & Max ~ July 13, 2013

While attending college orientation a few years ago, Alli & Max's mom's had met during lunch while they both waited for Alli and Max to sign up for classes. During their conversation they found out that their kids, who were both fans of the Seattle Mariners, were going to have a class together, "The History of Baseball" and knew they must introduce each other so they had a friend on the first day of college. Since that introduction, Alli and Max spoke often that summer about how excited they were to start college and live in Seattle. When it was getting close to the beginning of freshman year Max invited Alli to go to a Mariners' game with him and his roommate, which of course she said yes! The game was the night before they moved into their dorms and they had a lot of fun together.  Once they moved into their dorms they started talking every night and began dating the second day of freshman year. Over they years, they went to many baseball games together, spent time in Yakima with Max’s family, and during breaks he would fly down to Arizona to spend some time with Alli and her family. Their love of baseball brought them together and their love for one another brought them to Hidden Meadows this past July to celebrate their wedding day! 
Bright sunflowers and touches of blue and burlap set the theme for Alli & Max's summer wedding in Snohomish. As the ceremony began, Memory Montage Photography captured each moment.
A very personal ceremony by a dear family friend kicked off the celebrations.
After cocktail hour, guests were led to their tables which were adorned with square burlap overlays and alternated with centerpieces of sunflower arrangements and lanterns with loose floral.
Printed thank yous were placed at each place setting to ensure each guest was personally thanked. As a nod to one of their Grandpa's who had passed, his hat and a beer were placed on the bar in his memory.
Following dinner and toasts, a pie bar was opened so guests could enjoy various pies fresh from Remlinger Farms
After the newlyweds first dance, the dance floor opened for a night of celebration!
S'more favors were sent home with guests after they bid farewell to the newly crowned husband and wife with a sparkler exit to end a magical night of festivities!
 Congratulations ALLI & MAX!
