Cody and Rae contacted me just under a month ago to discuss their “last minute” wedding. They live in Idaho but wanted to come to Seattle to elope. I did not meet them in person until the morning of their wedding at their hotel in downtown Seattle. What transpired during that meeting was something I could not have planned on my best day! They had originally wanted to get married on Seattle’s waterfront. Because the weather was cold and damp, however, our morning meeting was spent talking about plan B. Plan B ended up being the observation deck of the Columbia Tower — 75 stories above their original waterfront location! The entire experience of getting the “ok” from the Columbia Tower — to marrying Cody and Rae against such a dramatic skyline — to the Columbia Tower gifting Cody and Rae with a bottle of cold champagne was nothing short of magical. I have to say that in all my years of officiating weddings this was probably one of the most unique elopements I have had the pleasure of being involved with. The spontaneity of putting together a plan B that Cody and Rae will always remember and sharing their magical moment was truly amazing for me. Congratulations Cody and Rae!
