hiking is for lovers.

 Dirty Harry's Balcony Snoqualmie Pass hiking
 Been slayin’ the hiking trails lately! We spent Valentine’s Day hiking to Dirty Harry’s Balcony, which ended up being fogged in. Womp, womp.  I brought my new camera all the way to the top of this thing to pull it out approximately zero times. I usually stop and take photos along the way but as you can see, this trail was ALL rock leftover from an old logging road. Ankle breaking rock to be exact and one had to pay close attention to where you placed your next step. I was really glad to have my hiking poles that day. We came back off the mountain to blue skies and capped off our day-o-love with homemade macaroni ‘n cheese and chocolate fondu 🙂

Within Sodo wedding venue - cultivatedrambler.comOh man, weddings go by SO fast. I wish I could have had four more hours of this stuff! I didn’t get to chat with nearly enough people, stuff my face with that dessert bar, nor dance to enough songs. Sigh. What I would give to experience it all over again…though not that whole planning part! Forget that. What a pain in the ass that was. Whoever enjoys wedding planning must be on one. Eesh.

The speeches were short, sweet and sassy. The cake was not only gorgeous but tasted delish. And the dancing was off the chain. The night ended with the song “Lovely Day” by Bill Withers and a soul train appeared out of nowhere. It was utterly magical and the perfect way to end the official party. Mind you the after party went on until 4am #shlomo! Who do you think we are ;-)?

OK, one last post coming up! The wedding video!!!

Within Sodo Seattle wedding venue - cultivatedrambler.comWe got married at Within Sodo, this cool event space in South Seattle. It was actually the only one we saw in person. I had my eye on the Georgetown Ballroom, but it had an exclusive caterer – boo to that right there. We were utilizing a family friend that’s a local caterer and needed to find a space that would allow us to bring in whomever we wanted. Within is one of the few places in town that allows any caterer in their space. Love it.

Bad because making it what you want requires a ton of rentals and rentals equal $$$. I about fainted from seeing the rental bill. Yikes.

Chuppah at Within Sodo Seattle wedding venue - cultivatedrambler.comWe had a reform Jewish wedding ceremony so we signed a ketubah prior to it, which I enjoyed more than I thought! Our ceremony was not one of those 5 minute quickies you see these days and we incorporated many traditions into it including circling, wine drinking and of course, the stomping of the glass. As much as I fought it at first, I really loved how it all came out in the end. It was a super meaningful and special ceremony to us!
