Real Wedding: Sierra & Brendan at Salty's on Alki

What I loved about this wedding: 

Yodeling, log-sawing, and individual cakes on each table - this wedding was full of personal touches and unique cultural traditions! And yes, you read that correctly, there was log-sawing. It's a Swiss-German tradition that after the ceremony, the couple will use a handsaw and cut through a log together, which represents overcoming their first challenge together as a married couple. Of course, just sawing through a log isn't enough, so during the father of the bride's toast, he also made  Brendan put together the sawhorses blindfolded while Sierra gave him instruction - a complete surprise challenge for the couple. But, they handled it like champs! The shot, taken "shotski" style from the log, probably helped. ;) I love learning about different cultural wedding traditions, and this one was hands down the most fun to watch!
