Mount Rainier Wedding Honoring Love & Tradition
For Amie Hazama and Chase Kania’s long-awaited wedding, the couple chose an intimate wedding surrounded by family. Amie and Chase chose to take their first look from the Naches Loop Trail in Mount Rainier National Park, which overlooks several mountain lakes. Afterward, they returned to the picturesque A-frame cabin and changed into kimonos, to honor Amie’s Japanese heritage. They worked with Kimono Art Seattle when choosing and styling this look as it was an important part of the celebration for Amie. The couple then tied the knot in front of the Cowlitz River, with Chase’s brother serving as the officiant as they read vows from their journals. After the ceremony, the couple signed their marriage license with Japanese origami pens that Amie’s mother had made herself. For their romantic reception, Chase and Amie, along with their guests, danced the night away under string lights to live acoustic music. They ended the evening with Amie’s brother-in-law, a French chef, whipping up a feast of lobster salad and steak—a perfect finale to a romantic day.
