Leslie Kincaid and Nick Lawrence met in high school in Yakima through mutual friends, and then reconnected years later at a holiday party after college. Nick enlisted the help of the couple’s Boston terriers when it came time to propose; he dressed the duo up in UPS delivery driver costumes and attached a ring box to one of the dog’s collars before calling them in to surprise Leslie.
The pair worked with their caterer Foodz Catering to develop a menu based on their personalities. Both of them are the children of fathers who worked in the beef industry, so they decided on steak and a macaroni-and-cheese bar as the main event. For dessert, they served up a mini-dessert spread with tiny pies, cakes and cookies, and dreamed up a special whiskey bar for guests to celebrate Nick’s favorite libation.
Leslie and Nick took a step off the beaten path more than once during their reception. Rather than a traditional cake-cutting, the pair cracked into a celebratory cake-shaped piñata full of miniature liquor bottles, scratch tickets and temporary tattoos; they hand-picked personalized Lego figurines to help each guest find their seating assignment; and rather than rice or sparklers, the duo exited the evening under the light of glow-in-the-dark pom-poms.
