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 made...so 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!

Party Like Gatsby-Kayleigh + Sean

Glamorous.  That is what I see when I look back on these pictures.  Kayleigh wanted a nod to the Great Gatsby and she got it.  From her form fitting, classic dress and her bridesmaids in sophisticated black with their fur shawls to their reception decor.  Their bouquets added a pop of dramatic color in shades of deep purple.  The guys looked dapper in their tuxes with deep purple to match the ladies.  The Seattle Aquarium is such a unique space to say your vows and celebrate with your friends and family.  Azzura Photography captured this so beautifully...my favorite, the octopus picture!!!  The huge aquarium is an amazing backdrop for your ceremony, so we kept the decor simple because of this.  For the reception we kept with the dramatic black and white decor, black linens, white flowers and amazing white feather arrangements.  Kayleigh & Crimson Haze Lighting came up with the perfect detail to bring the centerpieces to life...lights!  It looked so amazing with the uplighting all around the venue.  They had an amazing night dancing to the live band...which I always think is a fantastic choice!!!  I love how everything came together.  Classic, swanky and all around a good party.
