Tara & Chip: A Casual Wedding in Orting, WA

Warm colors, a tequila fountain, and a party that refused to end proved a recipe for fun at this August wedding. The Bride Tara Thompson, 27, therapist The Groom Chip Faulmann, 28, project manager The Date August 13 When Tara Thompson and Chip Faulmann started planning their summertime wedding, they had one word in mind: party! Two hundred and forty people would be attending their wedding at Ski Park Lake, and Tara and Chip were going to make sure it was the furthest thing from stuffy or formal and the closest thing to the party of the year. To that end, they invited each and every guest to celebrate all night long and then camp out on the property. “Many of them did,” admits Tara.
