Anthropologie style wedding at Terrain: Mindy + Mark

categories Real Weddings

Adorable couple alert! Puppies, The Seattle Mariners, reading in the sunshine and baking tasty treats makes Mindy one happy lady. Quantum physics, America’s Funniest Home Videos, lacrosse, and making fresh pasta tickle Mark’s fancy. Together, they’re known for throwing great dinner parties, so for them, this wedding was going to be the biggest, best dinner party they had ever thrown, with a homespun but classy flavor to it. There are so many details, colors, and textures to love about this wedding that made us feel like we were flipping the pages of an Anthropologie catalog – swoontastic!

We love this idea: Prior to the wedding, both Mindy and her mother-in-law took a bouquet-making workshop to teach them to make the pretty bouquets and floral arrangements you see in these photos. Talk about a fun bonding activity (with a pretty pay off)!

How awesome is it that Mark wanted to share his favorite part of their day?

Prior to the wedding we decided to write each other letters before heading to the ceremony. The moment of sitting there reading her letter and becoming emotional, even though I’m not one to show my emotions usually, was special. I was sitting with my groomsmen and yet remember feeling entirely engrossed by her perfect words, not aware of anything around me. I then went to the ceremony to wait for her so we could do a “first look.” Mindy was late, because she read my letter and also become emotional enough to cry off her makeup. Her tardiness I think just made it even more dramatic as I waited as patiently as possible. I felt like a kid on Christmas morning forced to sleep past 6am, when the photographer kept saying “don’t turn around yet.” Finally I did and was blown away. The letter before overwhelmed me, but this moment was beyond words. Truly perfect and will always be cherished.”

Turns out one of their favorite DIY projects (and one of ours too!) was quite the headache. Doesn’t it always come out that way?

We wanted to print our programs on paper bags to be filled with special BBQ popcorn that Chef Rudolf would put in for our guests. However, little did we know that printing on paper bags would be more difficult than printing on cloth! We had to try several printers and ended up feeding them through one-by-one on one of the oldest ink jet printers we tried, but we finally did it—after hours of attempts…

How about a little toast in the middle of your ceremony?

Our lovely officiant, David, asked if our friends and family would support us through this next journey. This was a time at which he had instructed them all to holler loudly and hoot “We do!” so they gladly followed suit, toasting with raspberry champagne as they did.

Our favors: Since we love cooking and food so much, we decided to make a rosemary salt and an orange sugar—we thought it would be cute to have a sweet and salty pair. We blended fresh rosemary with sea salt and then clementine peel with sugar, leaving more peel in with sugar to infuse it for weeks. We packaged it with a small, twine-wrapped card stock tag with our logo, handmade plaid pattern, and a short thank-you message.

As for the table numbers, my father-in-law, Bill, an amazing woodworker cut, shaved down and shined the wood we used for holding the numbers. I used a Cricut machine to cut out numbers in card stock and placed them inside the wood.

And, because there’s more pretty to go around, we must share their wedding video! Catch a glimpse of Mindy in her traditional red Chinese qipao during their tea ceremony + cocktail hour.

Congrats Mindy + Mark!

  19. Its really a great post about wedding styles. I like it.

  20. I’m suffering from a difficulty with viewing your web page obviously through the most recent model of Opera. Seems fantastic in IE and Firefox nonetheless.Have got a attractive day.

  21. Children loved it and more than 2 million kids
    took it home, when it was republished as a children’s book
    in 1946 Rudolph became a household name. There are many eye-catching creative decoration materials are obtainable within the store.

    In the winter when most native plants lose their leaves,
    flowers and fruits, mistletoe, evergreens, holly and ivy are winter wonders for us
    to admire.

  22. Pictures printed on ZINK paper are smudge-proof, water-resistant and dry-to-touch as soon
    as they come out. If the wedding is given by your mother,
    and your father is deceased,. These machines are useful for a huge variety of things, but you need to supply them with a digital design
    in order to get anything useful out of them.

  23. Factor in the cost of everything before you head to the store.
    However, with Corel Painter XI and this article, you can turn
    a favorite photograph into a close replica. We eat and are exposed to all types of chemicals and
    toxins each day.

  24. Additionally, it may leave residue with your machines that may prove challenging to remove.
    Another advantage to the thermal carafe is the coffee stains usually do not show
    plus it doesn’t break as easily being a glass carafe does.
    For a lot of people, the expensive and high-end coffee machines seem
    to be considered a bit excessive because of their needs.
