From Blue Rose Photography… We knew after shooting their engagement sessions that this was going to be an amazing wedding. Jake and Alex are so sweet and you immediately feel like you have known them forever. They smile a lot! Which is great for photographers. Alex totally won at styling herself. She wore a crop top Haley Paige gown with a classic up-do and simple but perfectly styled accessories. Jake made bow ties look amazing and the two of them together looked even better. The wedding was laid back and filled with joy and great light. I love that they enjoyed themselves so much and didn’t stress out.
From the Bride… Our wedding truly was a dream come true. Never have we ever felt so much love or pure happiness. If we could do it all over again we would and we wouldn’t change a single thing; not even missing our ‘entrance song’ because we couldn’t get Jake’s bow tie back on. It’s funny – you stress over every detail and try to attain that picture perfect wedding, but on the day of, it just doesn’t matter. When I woke up that morning, all I cared about was seeing Jake. I didn’t care about the table settings or the flowers or even the decorations that took me hours on end to assemble. All that mattered was that I was getting married to my best friend, and we were about to celebrate our asses off with everyone we love. My advice to future brides is to listen when people say things like “don’t forget to enjoy yourself” or “don’t stress the small stuff”, because it goes by faster than you could ever imagine!

From Valley & Company Events…We had so much fun working with Savannah and Steve planning and designing their intimate Seattle autumn wedding. They gave us carte blanche to surprise them with charming details and experiences, giving us the parameters of desiring a warm and cozy celebration.
With many of their guests traveling from the East Coast and Colorado, we knew they envisioned a wedding that was quintessentially Seattle, showing off the character of their new home. Guests were greeted at a century-old industrial building in Seattle’s SoDo neighborhood with warmed mulled cider cocktails in copper mugs and Spanish guitar playing in the background. The ceremony space was draped in gorgeous Northwest greenery garlands, peppered with magnolia leaves with hints of brown.
We incorporated fresh plums with calligraphy as table numbers and a subtle fall color story was told through the slate linens and autumnal centerpieces. We surprised Savannah and Steve by having their crest embroidered onto hemstitch napkins that we cinched with silk ribbon that sat atop each guest’s place setting. Guests dined on a decadent fall offerings, drank delicious wines, and danced the night away to a 7-piece band. It was such a pleasure to work with Savannah and Steve and looking back on their photos is so meaningful!

From Anna Peters … Annika and Brandan wanted their wedding day to be stylish, laid back, and fun! They balanced classic touches like these ultra elegant invitations from Kayd Creatives with fresh, organic blooms sourced locally from Beehaven Flower farm. J. Crew was the brand of choice for both the bride and groom! They were able to incorporate so many thoughtful personal elements into the day, including tucking a piece of her great grandmother’s wedding day flower crown into her bouquet and wearing a custom bracelet with a blue stone given to her mother. Guests sipped wine and danced into the sunset, sending the couple off with deluge of biodegradable confetti (a great way to create a spectacular grand exit while being environmentally conscious)!

Weathered wood benches were draped with soft grey cashmere wraps, to keep ‘guests’ warm for the winter ceremony.
