Erika and John met at Gonzaga University here in Spokane. For this reason, the couple got married in a traditional Catholic ceremony at Gonzaga’s St Aloysius church, then bused all guests over to the Estate for a Gonzaga-themed reception! It was a huge success. The reception was unique in that all guests and family ate outside and went inside to access the buffet table. Erika and John’s sweetheart table sat underneath the portico as well. Bulldog-themed decoration filled the venue. Dancing, cake cutting, and dessert moved everybody inside. The couples’ dessert table was one of the largest we’ve seen yet! It included a traditional cake, donuts, and a bulldog shaped cake. At the end of the night, the bridesmaids and groomsmen chanted “Go Gonzaga! G-O-N-Z-A-G-A” during sendoff.
