Before Marina and Andrew’s wedding ceremony, I went to the front of the room to welcome family and friends and I asked, “how many of you are from out of the area?”

All hands went up!  All 100+ guests!

Over these many months, I worked with Marina and Andrew from their home in Vancouver, British Columbia, to coordinate all ceremony details for this past Sunday afternoon at The Woodmark Hotel.

Marina and Andrew did everything very right in planning their wedding from a distance.  They hired a terrific wedding planner, Rebecca Grant.  They visited Seattle several times to attend to pre-wedding details (a big plus).  They used email and phone to insure everyone around them was “in the loop.”

And they were gracious, kind and very generous in heart, attitude and spirit.

Andrew and Marina – such a pleasure to know you both.  Happy honeymoon in California!

Love, Annemarie
