First of all, this bride has been waiting to share these pictures with us since the day she got engaged. How cute is she?! It came as no surprise, therefore, that her wedding was a beautiful Seattle affair, complete with the cutest puppy flower girl you’ve ever seen – in true SMP dog adoration fashion. Planned by VOWS Wedding & Event Planning and captured by Tonhya Kae Photography, we’ve been chomping at the bit to tell the lovely bride that we love every single moment. X’s and O’s to her!
From the beautiful bride… I have been dying to submit our wedding to your blog since my husband proposed. We just got our wedding pictures this week and after sending them to family, Style Me Pretty was my next stop! Our wedding was fun, easy, modern, glittery and the perfect reflection of us!
From the beginning we wanted to include all the things we love most: our English Bulldog- Clementine, Seattle, our best friends, our favorite foods, and our family. I had been imagining my wedding for ages, so when David proposed I already had a vision.
Our colors were navy, lilac and gold…although I managed so slip some leopard print in wherever possible. Most of the details were done by my mom and me. The lanterns were from Ikea and had to be spray painted gold, all the programs were hand made, and then, of course, there was the quilt. My mom is an incredible quilter so she made us a wedding quilt to use as a guest book. The front was finished and hanging behind the table and the back was going to be made out of the fabric squares left out for the guests to sign. She also made all the programs with the fabric from the quilt on the front and gold glitter paper on the inside. Then she made matching bunting to hang on the tables and pillows for the rented couch–basically she’s incredible!
Before the ceremony we opened our gifts from each other. David gave me a beautiful second diamond wedding band and I gave him a wedding card that I had gotten signed by the entire Seattle Mariners Baseball Team…who, until me, were the loves of his life! The first thing he said to me after “you’re so beautiful” at our first look was “ohmygod, the Mariner’s card!”
We had a short non-traditional ceremony with two readings: “Falling in love is like owning a dog.” and “Appache Wedding Blessing”. Our wedding date was my late grandma’s birthday, and I had pictures of both my grandma’s hanging from my bouquet. I walked down the aisle to Canon in D and our recessional song was Make My Dreams Come True by Hall and Oates. Our English Bulldog was our flower girl and walked my mom down the aisle.
Our reception was a blast. It was filled with delicious food: chicken and waffles, burgers, fries, cupcakes, etc. We also had a photobooth that was a huge hit and served as our favors. For drinks we served our favorite drinks: Sofia cans of wine, Summer Shandys, Arnold Palmers, and a few other beers and wines. Our first dance was to I can’t help falling in love with you by Elvis. The wedding was an incredible whirlwind, but our amazing photographers and videographers made sure that we’ll always remember every minute!
