The couple were united in marriage on Aug. 5, 2000 at Parsons Garden, Seattle.

The bride glowed, wearing a hand-sewn white dress and veil, the groom donned a traditional morning jacket tux and vest. In attendance were the couple’s first son Chas, close family and friends and the Blue Angels in a surprise flyby. Hugh, their second son was born in June of the following year.

The couple began their journey together in 1996 at The Fog Bank in Capitola, Calif. They moved to Seattle the following January and then to Bainbridge in 2004.

The bride is a children’s book author, life coach and homemaker. The groom is a software test manager at a Seattle multimedia corporation.

The Fordyce family is proud to call Bainbridge home. Charles and Rain are deeply involved with their boys’ education at Hyla Middle and Bainbridge High schools. Their family is frequently seen sailing, kayaking and walking about the island.
