There were so many memorable aspects of Kiki & Larry’s Seattle wedding day, but the one that I just can’t get out of my mind was the amazing pipe band, and the Scottish highland dancers leaping toward the ceiling in the Dome Room at the Arctic Club Hotel. I’ve seen plenty of dancers and pipers in my day, but nothing quite like this. Larry and Kiki actually met because they are both members of the Keith Highlanders Pipe Band (they placed 3rd in their division at the World Pipe Band Championships a few years ago), and Kiki is an instructor at the Bentzen School of Highland Dance.  They didn’t need to go out and hire random dancers and musicians to play their wedding, they just brought their friends–and they were incredible!

One of the meaningful aspects of their day, however, was how involved Kiki’s son Connor was throughout. Every time I turned around he was either reading a poem in the ceremony for Larry and Kiki, giving a toast, or performing a dance for everyone. He was just so excited, and it was really moving to see that Larry & Kiki were not simply joining in marriage, but they were uniting together as one family. Larry, Kiki, and Connor, we are so happy for you and thoroughly enjoyed sharing in your special day. ~Gerald & Airika
