Arie Boyd and Taylor Bateman met in an unusual way: at a crosswalk, while Taylor was driving with friends and Arie was walking with friends. She gave the men a fake name, but her friends convinced her to take Taylor and his friends up on their restaurant invitation, and the rest is history. The couple’s wedding celebration, infused with modern sophistication, was a DIY affair involving the whole family. Arie’s father crafted a ceremonial arbor using bamboo and greenery from his yard as well as succulents and peach roses to tie into the wedding’s florals. Her dad and the rest of her family also made bamboo circles that hung from above at the reception and created a doughnut wall. Her mom purchased succulents from Amazon to incorporate into the décor, affixing some of them herself to a naked cake; she also ordered the eucalyptus table décor. Arie made all the wedding signs herself, which included a welcome sign, seating chart, gift table and table names. Each table was named after an island in the San Juans, as the wedding took place at the Roche Harbor Resort on San Juan Island.
