Rustic Villa Wedding Inspiration

If I could live anywhere in the world, you’d find me lounging in a villa somewhere in the European countryside, glass of vino in hand. And I got a taste of that dream with this gorgeous inspiration shoot by the talented Weddings By Dani and Seattle Floral Design, captured in all its glory by Melissa Leith. So pour yourself some pinot and escape with the full gallery here.

From Melissa Leith… Inspired by natural tones and European flair, Weddings By Dani and Melissa Leith Photography collaborated to create a very organic look for this photo shoot. The colors were neutrals of cream, white and ivory, accented with greens. The table scape was dressed with a woven table runner and a beautiful flower arrangement, by Seattle Floral Design, included mums, garden roses, lilies, and greenery in deep maroon and cremes. Resting on each place setting was a menu designed by Songbird Paperie.

The cake, provided by Hillcrest Bakery, sat upon a wooden wine box was roughly frosted and adorned with leafy greens to match the table garland.

The wedding gown was Atherial providing an elegant romantic look for the bride and for the groom, a traditional black suit with striped tie to match. Yessie Libby Makeup Artistry gave the bride a soft and romantic look with loose, wavy curls and pinks and blushes for her make up. For her second look, and going away outfit, the dress designed by Olga de la Couture was made from Italian straw. Hair in an updo and sassy red lips to compliment.

It was such a fun shoot to put together and absolute perfect setting at Delille Cellars.

Simple yet ridiculously sweet and personal, this chic Seattle celebration at the Sky View Observatory captured by Alexandra Knight has my heart this morning.

From Alexandra Knight PhotographyKatie & Brandon were a referral from a dear friend and I knew I wanted to photograph their wedding within minutes of meeting them. They are calm, loving, and genuine people that have a remarkable love story. I love their wedding for their details, their commitment to keeping the day about them and what they wanted, and their incredible venue. Katie & Brandon were only the 2nd couple to ever get married at the Sky View Observatory, 73 floors above the bustling streets of downtown Seattle. It was such a treat to be part of a wedding at this brand new venue! Following their ceremony and a few photos on the observation deck, we headed to the waterfront of downtown Seattle for a gorgeous portrait session at sunset. The pier was practically empty and we walked a block down the street for some photos in front of the Seattle ferris wheel, too. The images of the bride spinning and twirling are my favorites, as Katie paused to twirl and swish her dress back and forth all day on her own. The joy she got from the movement of such a beautiful dress and the ability to express that happiness was such a perfect thing to photograph and I feel that the images we took of her spinning beautifully capture that joy. Teal accents, killer Badgley Mischka shoes, tea length gown… this wedding was a knockout!

From The Bride…Brandon and I wanted to focus on three things in the planning of our wedding.  We wanted to represent the simplicity that we strive for in our everyday lives.  To make it through the planning with the intention of ease and practicality (if it was too much of a hassle we just cut it and didn’t bother!).  And to represent ourselves based on the values and sentiment that we carry through our relationship.  This day was going to be about us.

When it came to planning our big day my inspiration first started with the color palate. And the color palate first started with some shoes.

After knowing each other since middle school and through high school, Brandon and I were reunited at my 25th birthday.  Like any stylish 20-something I was dressed for the occasion and wearing some gorgeous teal heels; little did we know that birthday would be the beginning of something so special and those shoes would become a fond memory for us through our dating years.  So in honor of where we started, there was no question in my mind, I’d be walking down the aisle in gorgeous, show stopping teal heels.

In order to truly show case the heels I knew the dress would have to be shorter.  I also knew it would have to be a simple style, I wanted to wear the dress not have it wear me.  With the tea length dress there was no hiking it up or dragging it around the city and whenever the mood hit it gave me every opportunity to twirl and spin with delight.

 Our venue sort of just fell into our laps, and following suit in simplicity and practicality, we knew that it fit just right. We had been in downtown Seattle exploring courthouse options, but walking through metal detectors did not leave us feeling swept away by romance, and made it hard to envision myself feeling bridal while walking down such uninspiring halls.  After we left the courthouse we spontaneously decided to take a small sight-seeing trip to the Sky View Observatory of the Columbia Tower a few blocks away, the office building is the second tallest building on the west coast and has the highest viewing deck west of the Mississippi.  As we stepped off the elevators on the 73rd floor and looked around the Observatory suddenly the space just screamed “Wedding”! The 360 degree view was simply breathtaking and being so far above the bustle and craziness of downtown Seattle gave such a sense of serenity.  The space simply made perfect sense to us.

There was a theme of unexpected things falling perfectly into place while we planned our wedding, which seemed to reflect exactly how our friendship and relationship has been- unexpectedly and perfectly falling in love when the time was just right.

The vibrant florals, the cityscape, the feasting in front of a weathered brick wall all come together through the lens of O’Malley Photographers.

From O’Malley PhotographersWe have a gorgeous Pacific Northwest wedding planned and designed by the talented Sinclair & Moore team here to share with you! Todd and Kristi’s wedding was full of classic and elegant touches, exactly what they hoped their wedding would be. They opted for a classic and elegant wedding in downtown Seattle, but wanted their photos to also incorporate the gorgeous water and mountain views, something that is unique to Seattle. The slate grey, navy, smoky blue, coral and peach color palette was perfectly achieved with garden and spray roses, dahlias, clematis, sweet peas, raspberries and other unique natural elements. They chose Court in the Square to say their “I Do’s” at and new venue, AXIS, to host their reception. Both venues boast quintessential Seattle vibes with lots of brick, exposed wood and warm character. The bride and groom got ready at nearby Alexis Hotel, within walking distance to the historic Pioneer Square district where the ceremony and reception were held. They incorporated other special touches into their big day such as a touching tribute to their grandparents during the ceremony and a late night snack of wood-fired pizza (the bride’s favorite treat) to keep their guests fueled for dancing late into the evening. It was a beautiful and memorable day!
