Terren planned an elaborate proposal for Niomi. He rented out the entire Seattle Aquarium and had it beautifully decorated in her favorite color and had candles everywhere! So, there was no question their reception would be held there and the ceremony would be held at the church where Terren’s father is the Pastor! The wedding day began at a hotel in downtown Seattle where the Bridal Party got ready, then we had a party bus take them to the church (separately of course so he didn’t see her until she walked down the aisle). Terren’s Dad and brother both sang at the wedding and his Mom played the piano. What a musical family and such a beautiful service. After the ceremony Niomi & Terren jumped in a vintage car and were driven to Kerry Park (with the Bridal Party following in the party bus) where immediate family joined them for an Ethiopian luncheon. After the luncheon the Bridal Party went back to the hotel and changed for the reception. The party bus again drove them to the Aquarium to join the guests that were already there. The Bridal Party had a Grand Entrance down the grand staircase and then when it was time to introduce Niomi & Terren, the lights inside the huge fish tank came on and a diver inside the tank gave their introduction!!! Talk about an exciting and fun way to enter a party!!! They then went over to the tank to capture some magical shots with the diver inside. The guests enjoyed the massive Ethiopian buffet and they danced with the band until midnight. There were lots of Ethiopian traditions from Niomi’s side of the family that were very special and meaningful to everyone. It was a long day, but oh so worth it! A nicer couple I cannot find. These two are gems and will always be super special to me. It was an honor to be chosen to help them with their wedding!
Bride & Groom: “Thank you so much for all your have done and what you meant for our wedding. You ensured that not only we had the most amazing day, but our friends and family did as well. We could not have selected a better person to entrust with our special day. You are the BEST!!! Thanks for everything, you are AWESOME!!”
