Susanne & Scott

Aug. 13, 2010 at Georgetown Ballroom in Seattle

Susanne, a city planner and artist, met her future husband at City Hall. "I was managing a project, and Scott was on the advisory board," says Susanne. "At first I thought he was just really into the project, but it soon became apparent he was really into the project manager!" After becoming engaged, the couple planned an intimate ceremony and an "elegant rock-and-roll cocktail reception." Their roots in the music scene couldn't be missed. Scott, who played an instrumental role in the grunge rock movement, was in two bands whose members went on to form Soundgarden and Screaming Trees. Their officiant was friend and Seattle record producer Martin Feveyear. The couple hired bands The Bird Watchers--whose founder, Joe Ross, has played with Scott for more than 20 years-and horn band Rat City Brass. Besides entertaining 200 guests with music, they served foods from some of their favorite local places: appetizers from Husky Deli, paella by Azafron and tamales from Lorena's Mobile Kitchen. Later, Susanne and Scott were chauffeured away by Georgetown Ballroom owner Jerry Chin in Jerry's classic 1956 Cadillac convertible. "I was never a rock-and-roll girl, but now I'm a rock-and-roll wife," says Susanne of her husband, who is director of interactive media for an ad agency, and a drummer for the band Paths Of Glory. "I feel so lucky, because Scott is an amazing talent and person, but always gracious and humble." The happy couple lives in Greenwood.
Favorite moment: "We asked our siblings and their spouses to be in the wedding party, down to my niece and nephews as the flower children," Susanne remembers. "It felt very intimate to be so surrounded by our family."
