Ambyr and Lacey’s winter wedding celebrated their love and LGBTQ+ pride with a rainbow color palette and personally meaningful details. The Seattle couple, who met on Tinder, love travel and adventure, trivia nights and spending time with their pets: a cute old dachshund and two cats named Rye and Mezcal.

When planning their wedding, Ambyr and Lacey’s goal was to create a low-key, easy-going event. They incorporated dozens of customized elements, from perfumes and broaches to pastel macarons and thrifted vintage glassware. Their wedding party, consisting of their chosen family members, wore emerald green, sapphire blue and mustard yellow in a variety of fabrics. The pair highlighted their personalities in their own outfits as well, with sparkly boots, a fun broach and luxurious cream jackets that they wore for their portraits.

The newlyweds hodl each others' chins and put their heads together to share a kiss.

In addition to a ceremony officiated by their best friend, the pair had a private vow reading down the street from their venue, at a bar where they happened to find seats right in front of a Pride flag. Then, Ambyr and Lacey spent their cocktail hour behind the bar, serving every one of their guests a signature cocktail.

Their guest book was a dictionary, and each attendant was asked to circle a word and leave a note in the margins. Favors were mini champagne bottles with labels hand-drawn by one of their grandmothers, as well as matchbooks reading “love me Tinder,” an added pun to celebrate how they met.
