NAMES Annie Sanditen & Marc Hakim LIVE IN Alberta Arts District OCCUPATIONS She enjoyed the wedding planning process with Fieldwork Flowers so much that she became a co-owner; he’s a writer HOW THEY MET Growing up in Tulsa, they attended the same schools; Marc graduated a year ahead, and they didn’t meet again until 18 years later during a chilly holiday back home HOW THEY GOT ENGAGED After a frustrating day of house hunting, and over a Domino’s thin-crust pizza, Marc casually said, “We should get married!” and Annie agreed WEDDING WEATHER Raining at first, but sunshine prevailed NUMBER OF GUESTS 68 COLORS Mostly whites, gray-greens, natural branch, and sparkles THEME Family and Oregon’s beauty FLOWERS Bountiful bouquets and floral-focused décor: dinnerplate dahlias, dark chocolate sunflowers, black basil, and more FAMILY TOUCH Instead of placing programs on each chair, they used a photo of Annie with her late father and a note honoring her love for him MENU HIGHLIGHT They started the rustic four-course meal with a favorite family tradition: shared plates of salted carrots and radishes, and bread with olive oil and salted butter DESSERT Lauretta Jean’s coconut cream, key lime (Annie’s father’s favorite), and chocolate cream pies, plus Salt & Straw ice cream with waffle cones FAVORS Totes filled with Jacobsen salt, Stumptown coffee, Woodblock Chocolate, Quin candy, Smith iced tea, and Portland Monthly magazines, plus little boxes of Blue Star doughnuts for the bus ride back to the hotel IF THEY HAD TO DO IT OVER They’d hire a band for the whole wedding, not write their ceremony and vows at the last minute, and stress less THE DAY IN THREE WORDS Intimate, thoughtful, magical HONEYMOON Plan is Japan

We loved seeing our families so happy. They came from Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Denmark, and more, and by the end of the weekend, no one wanted to leave each other.  -Annie Sanditen
