We had the pleasure of celebrating Ted and Michiru's wedding this past weekend. Mike was honored to be asked to be a groomsman in the wedding. On Friday night, he attended the rehearsal and then I accompanied him to the post rehearsal dinner which took place at Rock Salt in Seattle. We had some amazingly good prime rib, followed by a decadent chocolate fudge brownie a la mode as well as some luscious creme brulee! It was a really nice dinner for those in the wedding party and I was lucky to be able to attend!
On Saturday morning, we headed for the wedding site. We could not have asked for a more beautiful day in February in Washington. The sky was crystal clear, the sun shone brightly and the temperature was in the mid 50s... very un-Seattle-like! The wedding was held at the Stimson-Green Mansion on Minor Avenue in Seattle. The mansion is a hundred-year-old home that is now on the city's registry of historical sites. All the original architechture remains in place as does much of the furniture and art. During the ceremony, I could hear a distant bus rumbling down the road. In that moment I imagined that if the wedding were being held a century previous, I might hear the "clop clop" of horses hooves going by instead. It's really a gorgeous home and I enjoyed every moment inside! The ceremony was beautiful and it was fun to mingle with people from ITTI. The food was really delicious and we just had a great time. Congratulations to Ted & Michiru!
