West Seattle newlyweds Anna Ellis, 32, a hairstylist at the Beehive Salon in Wallingford, and Luke Fryer, 48, a product designer for Scott Sports, were so smitten with each other that they went on their first date—snowboarding at Alpental—the very day after they met. Seven years later, after a surprise trip to Hawaii to pop the question, they planned a three-day affair with 60 of their closest friends and family camping side by side on a 100-acre estate on Whidbey Island. After the guests arrived on Friday, the couple spent two days in nonstop celebration with music, lawn games, bicycling and fireside fun, before being married on Saturday evening with 150 guests in attendance. A laidback atmosphere with guests from all over the world allowed everyone to relax and get to know one another as Anna and Luke took the plunge.
