Park Ceremony + fun cocktail party reception


Melanie and Zach insisted on a private family ceremony but wanted a fun party afterwards. Libby Hill Park was a perfect backdrop for a cozy ceremony in the city and then trolleys carried the newlyweds and their family to Havana for a reception with 150 of their friends!

Planner's Notes:

Melanie and Zach actually met Christine at another person's wedding in 2014. They weren't even engaged yet, but they knew they'd need help after they packed their lives up and moved to Seattle. They hosted a private, family-only ceremony at Libby Hill Park and then celebrated with all of their friends and family at Havana '59 with a casual, cocktail party vibe.
