Seattle Wedding

Jen + Robert

 

I had the pleasure of working with my husband’s cousin Jen and Robert. They wanted a party with NW rustic vibes with a splash of glam and they are huge music fans!

The ceremony was held under the gazebo which we referred to as the “manger” because without anything that’s what it looks like.

I added draping to both sides (that was interesting as I had never done that before but it all worked out with a staple gun – ha). The florists (family friend) added 3 statements pieces above where J + R stood and the guests were provided wood benches to keep the NW rustic vibe.

The reception space was transformed by Bridal Bliss and the Lovely Night team (CORT setup the draping Thursday).

The tables were covered in navy linens accompanied by a wood round in the middle of the table. On top of the round were two glass vases filled with moss and white candles. We added a single blush rose and one white dahlia that laid level with the wood round to complete the NW table scape.

Seeing my family laugh, dance, drink and be happy all afternoon and evening made for a successful event and I was so honored to be a part of it!!

Cara + Micah

 

Cara & Micah's wedding was breathtaking on a typical PNW September day - we had sun & warmth, clouds AND rain.

They spent the morning getting ready together with their adorable pup before taking photos at at the venue.

After photos, it was time for the ceremony. The weather held and they were married outside on the venue’s Bocce Ball Court.

With the indoor and outdoor options JM Cellars provides, we were able to make a last-minute decision to move the reception inside, which turned out to be just as beautiful.

Guests were treated to a lovely buffet meal by Herban Feast, had the opportunity to visit the caricaturist for a fun drawing of themselves, all while mingling and cheers-ing to the couples favorite songs.

When it was time for dessert, guests were treated to a cronut bar. And if you’ve never had one before, I can tell you they are delicious!

It was a gorgeous September evening at JM Cellars!

Kari + Sharat

 

When you first hear the words, 'married in my parents' backyard' there so many thoughts and questions that run through a planner's mind. 

The biggest one, are you sure?  In this case, the answer was YES, and we could not have asked for a more perfect space or weekend for Kari and Sharat.

In keeping with the theme of the weekend we wanted the wedding to feel beautiful and classic, but also relaxed and fun.

Guests made their way down to the waterfront where they were wowed by the incredible backdrop, and flowers by the talented, Eleanor Blackford of Bash and Bloom.  

Kari and Sharat said I do in the same backyard as her parents had years before, and by the same officiant, making it an even more special celebration for their families and loved ones.   

Following the ceremony we invited guests to mingle as many had traveled to the celebration while enjoying cocktails and light bites from the Lisa Dupar team. 

As the sun began to lower we moved into the tent for a water-side dinner capped off by a round of toasts and well wishes for the couple.

The laughter continued with lawn games, ice cream & pie (A la Mode), a homemade dessert - provided by the bride's mother, Lisa, a traditional Norwegian Wedding Cake which tasted even more incredible than it looked. 

Guests left with personalized sunglasses (such a fun touch for this sunny July wedding), full bellies - pizza from local favorite Pagliacci capped off our night of eating, tired feet from the hours of dancing (music provided by Rudy of the RudEvents), damp hair (for some) from a late night dip in the lake and smiles are on the their faces.

So incredibly happy for this amazing couple. Kari and Sharat thank you for letting me be a part of your special day!

We loved working with Bridal Bliss, and our incredible wedding planner, Molly Corr. Molly’s skillful organization, positive attitude, flexibility, and calm demeanor took the stress out of wedding planning. Our wedding came together smoothly and beautifully thanks to Molly’s attention to details and lovely style. We would absolutely recommend Molly and Bridal Bliss for anyone looking for a wedding planner!

Savitha + Ted

 

I first met Savitha a few months before her big day.  She was one of the most calm and relaxed brides I have ever me.  She wanted to keep the entire weekend of celebration stress free and uncomplicated for both herself, her finance Ted, and their families.  

JM Cellars was the perfect venue for the style of wedding they were looking for, laid-back elegance.  Savitha chose simple details to enhance the beauty of the space, selecting locally grown flowers and romantic color palette. 

 Stadium Flowers added gorgeous flowers to the arbor where Savitha and Ted said their I-Dos.  My favorite moment (as it frequently is) was watching as  the ceremony came to close, joining not only the couple in this case, but also their families, with five kids between them - such a special moment for them all.

Following the ceremony guests were welcomed to the rock garden for wine and bites provided by Herban Feast before moving into the Wine Library for dinner.

Guests dined, and listened to heartfelt toasts before moving into the barrel room for dancing!  Although it was a cooler than anticipated summer evening the room was kept warm by the very full the dance floor and celebratory energy.  

Congratulations Ted & Savitha, and thank you for allowing me to be a part of your special day!

Mallory + Serkan

 

When you have known the bride since she was a toddler, it makes planning a wedding that much more special. Going into 2018 I had a feeling Mallory and Serkan's wedding was going to be one of my favorites - not only were they planning on saying their I-Dos at the beautiful Bella Luna Farms in Snohomish, WA (with some amazing vendors I might add!), but it also would host guests from all over the country including some Mallory and I both had known for decades.

And just as I had anticipated July 14th was the perfect day for this special bride and groom. 

They were married by a dear friend and surrounded by loved ones. 

The sun shone down on these two as they stood beneath an arbor created by venue owner, Pamela Thompson.  

Following the ceremony guests were encouraged to wander the property while nibbling on bites provided by Upper Left Catering and serenaded by Tyler Edwards and company.

As guests said goodbye to the iconic goats (always a hit during cocktail hour!) they were then seated under our pitched tent where they were served an amazing family style dinner.

As dinner came to an end, guests were entertained by several hilarious and heart-felt toasts.  

We capped the night with cake provided by Cubes bakery, dancing (with music provided by the fabulous, Ben Meadow) under the star wrapped a-frame, and a late night snack of stone-fired pizza (another perk of this unique venue) before the couple was whisked away to the cozy hay loft for the night.

Thank you to our amazing photographers, Kim and  Adam of La Vie Photography for capturing this magical day.  And to Mallory and Serkan, it was truly an honor to be a part of this special time in your life, I look forward to celebrating with you both for years to come!

Brittany + Kelly

 

Brittany and Kelly are the definitions of class and fun! 

These two were such a pleasure to work with on a gorgeous July day at DeLille Cellars.

The day began with a pre-ceremony cocktail hour complete with a homemade beer wall and lawn games.

 Before the ceremony, the bride made a quick dress change and wowed her guests as she walked down the aisle toward her groom.

  Once the sweet ceremony was sealed with a kiss, guests headed down to the reception area where they were met with a creative escort card table poured by A Platinum Events. The bride and groom shared sweet moments during their The Sweet Side cake cutting.

As guests entered the outside reception they were greeted by rustic linen tablecloths lined with wooden x-back chairs and accented with low and lush creamy florals by Melanie Benson Floral.

The evening was kept intimate and social, funny and loving toasts and music from Otto-Matic that had Brittany and Kelly's friends grooving all night long!

The memories of the day were captured perfectly, courtesy of Carina Skrobecki Photography and Eric Miller Videos. The bride and groom were showered in love by their guests, on their special day. Brittany and Kelly, Molly and I wish you all the happiness life has to offer!

 

Amanda + Anthony

 

There are not enough words to describe how much fun I had with Amanda while planning her May 20th wedding.  Amanda and I knew each other years ago when we both were working for the same company.  While we saw each other now and then, it was not until the planning process began that we were able to really catch up.

Before we even started talking details, I knew (from all those years before) that this was going to be an amazing event.  Amanda had always been the glam-girl, dressed up for all occasions, perfectly put together, and not one to shy away from a little sparkle - and for this special day, sparkle did we ever! 

 Amanda's father was in the process of building a vintage car museum, Jester's Auto Museum with an event space attached.  Their wedding would be the first wedding (and event) to be held in the space - so cool!  While contraction moved along, Amanda and I spent our time working on converting the space into a Winter Wonderland.

Before we all knew it, it was the wedding day!  Guests were welcomed into the venue and took their seats among the most gorgeous all-white arrangements + crystal-swathed alter piece, as well as 6 dangling chandeliers.  Amanda wowed all of her guests in the most amazing gown by Lazro Bridal (truly the inspiration for the entire wedding!).

After a heartfelt ceremony, and darling performance by their pup/ring bearer, Louis (in a tuxedo of course!) guests made their way out of the ceremony space for cocktails among some of the Museum's amazing vintage cars.

As special treats for guests, we brought in an replica Inukshuk as Anthony had proposed to Amanda in front of the actual Inukshuk in Whistler BC, and my favorite a champagne fountain!  And not just any fountain - the same one her parents had at their own wedding decades before!

The fun continued from there!  Dinner was served in our converted space under the crystal chandeliers and among glittering voters and beautiful white roses.  We toasted to the newly weds, and watched as they opened up the dance floor with a performance by Dance Machine.  Guests moved between the Open Air Photo Booth—definitely a hit, our beautiful lounge, and the rocking dance floor while enjoying individual wedding cakes and a late snack, burgers from Burgerville, which the bride herself passed out to guests on a silver tray - so cute! 

And the final detail, Amanda now in a new (also gorgeous!) gown helped lead her bridesmaids as they showered the guests with silver confetti during one of the couple's favorite songs!  

The entire night was a blast!  Amanda and Anthony are such a special couple, one I felt so honored to work with.  Thank you both for allowing me to be a part of your special day!

I wanted to be extremely hands on with my wedding and I had very high expectations of the level of perfection I wanted. So when thinking about options of hiring a wedding planner I knew it would have to be someone that had impeccable taste, who could listen to my ideas and execute it and who also understood the level of perfection that I wanted. MOLLY did all of that and more!!!!

Megan + Jack

 
J&M_Portraits_20.jpg

Jack & Megan are two of the best people. I have had the privilege of knowing Jack (and his family) pretty much my entire life as he has been good friends with my younger brother since Kindergarten. They went on to High School together at Seattle Prep where Jack met Megan. Megan has a glowing personality and contagious smile - which captured Jack early on. They played it cool as friends for a few years, but finally gave in and have been together since. When you meet these two, it clicks. They truly are meant to be together. They are both down to earth, hard workers and value every person in their life. Planning their wedding was truly an honor. 

J&M_Portraits_109.jpg

We dove into planning two days of events. Jack & Megan wanted to get married in the backyard of Megan's grandmothers house. They loved the idea of getting married in the gardens, walking barefoot on the grass and saying "I do" at the same place Megan's parents were married many years ago.

We planned a fun Spanish inspired night for their families and bridal party on Friday. It included amazing music from Rio Con Brio, a Spanish themed menu from Paella Works, craft cocktails from Perfect Pour and a sweet ending with pies from Yippie Pie Yay
