Ifong Chen Weddings

July 17, 2013

Marci & Keane at Bozarth Mansion, Spokane WA

A blitz. A blur. The tacos went fast. The beer and wine, consumed by all with mounting enthusiasm, made for great hydration against a backdrop of pinatas and sombreros. Mexico was represented, but so too were our friends and family–surely the most lively, best-dressed, rhythm-making crowd to ever beset the Bozarth. Ole!

Wedding goers warned us: time would fly. It did. We enjoyed the company of people from all corners of this great nation. The love and support was a wellspring for communal laughs, chance meetings and the re-ignition of old friendships. Despite our best attempts, we were not able to visit with everyone. Blame the tight schedule or the pace of events. If that’s the case, please know that we truly appreciate that you came, saw and celebrated our wedding with us.

Great events are the result of great staff. Details, details, details. Special thanks to all of our vendors, who went above and beyond making this a uniquely memorable experience. In no particular order:

Soiree Event Design – Wedding planning
Batch Bake Shop – Dessert
Tacos El Sol – Food
Complete Music – MC and music
Whimsy Floral – Bouquets
Clearwater Summit Group – Grasses for aisle & transportation of supplies
Sonnenberg’s Market and Deli – Food
Mariachis – Live entertainment
Event Rents – Equipment and place settings
Olive and Boone – Marci’s Fascinator (headpiece)
Nordstrom (Joe Morris – The “Guru”) – Keane’s and groomsmen’ attire
The Davenport Hotel & Tower – Lodging and guest transportation
Bill’s Friendly Rides – Guest transportation

In addition, our parents were instrumental in the planning and creative development process. This would not have been as colorful or as fun without you. To Tim and Elaine Sweet and Dean and Diane Sonnenberg–thank you and we love you!
