Carey & Jared | The Wedding! | Seattle WA

Carey and Jared’s wedding could be described as the ultimate organic wedding.

or·gan·ic   (ôr-gnk)

adj. 1. Of, relating to, or derived from living organisms: organic matter….

Yes, this involved sourcing all of their food from local and sustainable companies, and decorating with local flowers, beeswax candles, and natural fibers, but more over, Carey and Jared’s aim was to celebrate the living organisms they choose to have around them, namely: their family and friends.
Yes, this celebration was about the marriage of Carey and Jared, but in that, they celebrated the people who have made them who they are, and they celebrated why they love each other.
As I mentioned in the sneak peek, Carey and Jared’s wedding was a pure and natural outpouring of love, without contrivance, nothing fake, nothing put on. The day was calm and refreshing. Yet not without elements of tradition, but not just for tradition’s sake…tradition to remind everyone that we all come from something…the same something. And we are all here, as living organisms together, to celebrate the wonder and beauty of our planet and of each other.
Thank you, Carey and Jared, for being you. I am so incredibly excited for you and your future together! Congratulations again!
