Something Blue-Hilary + Linda

Where do I even start with this amazing wedding!  The details? The couple? Just the day in general???  This was one of my favorite designs of the year.  It was so simple but just so cool.  It started out perfect on a Winter day with the sun and blue skies out!  Hilary & Linda are seriously the sweetest and so laid back.  I love looking at these pictures of them during their ceremony.  You can just feel, see and know that there is a ton of love between them.  Each lady brought their style and rocked it.  Hilary's amazing short cocktail dress and Linda's blue fur...Flawless!  The pops of navy from Hilary's dress to Linda's shoes were fantastic touches to give a little dramatic vibe.  For their decor they knew what they wanted but also left it up to myself and Danae to lead the design plan for their big day.  They wanted simple, modern with different elements for interest like cement, glass and wood.  We lined the aisle and altar with large cinder blocks with candles and loose greenery.  A simple greenery garland was suspended off the wood wall at Metropolist....that wood wall though!!!  The cinder blocks were then moved to the centerpieces on the long farm tables with loose eucalyptus, candles and glass globes that had succulents in them.  Some of the tables had huge air plants on them that their guests were able to take home.  I love the wood table numbers that Perfectly Posh Events had...they were perfect with this design.  Their guests had family style Mexican dinner and for dessert got to make their own ice cream sandwiches by Street Treats!!!   More amazing details were so thought out.  Their specialty drinks were a nod to both their dads, such a sweet idea.  Their guest book was a pair of vintage skis that they were going to hang in their house!  So cool.  I could go on and on about how this day was so easy, fun and how much I loved every detail from this day.  This vendor team was amazing too!!!  We even made it to Seattle Bride Magazine's online front page!!!  Check it out here.  I am so happy to be a part of a gorgeous day for these amazing women!

Mother's Day Photoshoot

I love when projects come up where I can be creative and collaborate with an amazing vendor!  Kendall with Kendall Lauren Photography is just amazing!  Not only does she take gorgeous pictures, but she is just a rad person to be around.  I have known her for years and was so excited when she wanted me to do a few flower items for her Mother's Day Minis.  A couple flower crowns is always a must!  I love the bouquet I created with so much texture and amazing local blooms.  It was so fun to create a simple backdrop out of my copper pipe arch that I hung greenery & lily blooms.  A simple eucalyptus garland lined the back of the couch.  Her studio space has such amazing light and I love how everything looked like it belonged in the space.

I had my assistant with me, my hilarious 2 year old daughter, helping me along the way.  Kendall was so sweet to take some shots of us as well and I just LOVE how they turned out.

Thank you so much Kendall, I love creating fun elements for your beautiful clients and photos!

I took these pics below before the Mamas and their families showed up to have fun in front of the camera!  My little helper was so excited to model under the arch!!!

I did a little testing out the flower crown before drop off and I got this picture from Kendall after she was finished and headed to another photoshoot wearing the other crown I stinkin adorable Kendall!!!

Gorgeous Cherry Blossoms-Anna + Allen

Having your wedding around the time when the cherry blossoms bloom is such an added bonus.  But really...these two did not need them!  Anna's dress was amazing by itself!!!  These two were the perfect mix of sophistication and fun.  And you can tell from the gorgeous shots from Laurel McConell and from the surprises Anna did for Allen.  I think those are my favorite moments from this day.  His reaction to not one surprise, the groom's cake, but two, Dante's Inferno Dogs at the end of the night.  I love that through this whole process they thought about what each other wanted from this celebration.  This is a couple that wanted to have a great time with their friends and family.  Starting off with their wedding party to the flower girls, you can just tell they were enjoying their day.  The ceremony aisle was set with candles and rose petals along the aisle.  At the altar a simple copper pipe arch was adorned with long crystal garlands, glass globes and greenery sprigs.  This arch was used as their sweetheart table backdrop as well.  I loved all the details for the tables, the neutral linens that Allen picked out.  The soft blush napkins that we decided to do a unique fold and tucked a stem of eucalyptus in it.  The gold rimmed chargers and the different metallic votives that had just the right glow and color pop.   Some of the tables had full flower arrangements with white and blush and greenery and the other tables had candle trios with a base of greenery.  Everything was so elegant and details were just perfect for this couple.  I am so happy I was a part of this gorgeous day and met this fantastic couple!
