Romantic, elegant country wedding

Danielle and Cody Dieni were married Sept. 16, 2016, at Mountain View Manor.

HOW THEY MET: The couple met playing softball in Des Moines. “Cody’s team was short one girl; I offered to play with their team, and we’ve been inseparable ever since,” says Danielle.

VENUE: Both the wedding and reception were held at the venue. The couple enjoyed the view of Mount Rainier, the gardens and the size of the ceremony site. Nearly 120 people attended their wedding.

VISION: When planning their wedding, the couple put a high priority on hiring a “phenomenal photographer” and getting “amazing flowers.” They wanted a romantic, elegant wedding. Blush, ivory, champagne and gold were their colors. “I wanted everyone to feel like they were at a beautiful, formal party,” says Danielle.

“Although I was going for a glamorous ambiance, I wanted our friends and family to see how much we make each other laugh,” says Danielle. “I wanted everyone to see that our love is so strong because we are best friends.”

THEME, DECOR: At the ceremony, wine barrels placed on each side of the aisle were topped with floral arrangements.

At the reception, tall trumpet vases of flowers formed the centerpieces, and gold chandeliers hung inside the tent. The couple’s sweetheart table had a sequined blush tablecloth, and tall candleholders were placed on it.

During the reception, the guests toasted marshmallows for s’mores at the venue’s fire pit.

SPECIAL MOMENTS: The couple’s nine-month-old son sat in a wagon pulled by his cousin. He waved to everyone as he went down the aisle. He also clapped as their friend presented the ceremony. “We have known our friend who officiated our wedding for six years,” says Danielle. “It was beyond special to have him standing at the altar with us.”

Danielle is a restaurant worker, and Cody is a manager for a transportation company. They make their home in Auburn.

This wedding was featured in South Sound Wedding & Event magazine 2017.
