Spring Dinner Party-5-20-17

One of my favorite designs this Spring was not a wedding.  It was an intimate birthday dinner at a winery.  I love filling up a long table.  The bright and bold colors of the flowers and the green of the potted plants really popped in the dark cellar room at Novelty Hill Januik Winery in Woodinville.  So many different elements came together and worked so well.  The wood slices, geometric lanterns and glassybaby...I can go on and on about the details!!!  Those marble place cards!!!  So gorgeous!!!  This was a fun one and I love how it all turned out.

Maria + John-June 24, 2017

This was one of my favorite color palettes this season.  The deep burgundy with splash of blush, peach and coral.  It was so dramatic, but not too dark to feel too much like Fall for a wedding in the beginning of Summer.  We planned this lovely wedding with this amazing couple six weeks before their big day!!!  And I just love how it all came together.  This was also one of my favorite arches of the season.  Simple, but a statement and funky!  I love it behind the cake too.   Not only were Maria and John the sweetest, but their wedding party was too.  Everyone was there to make the best of a crazy hot day and make sure that Maria & John had the most memorable wedding.  You can tell from these beautiful pictures the fun they were having and focusing on.  I am a sucker for Glassybaby, and they really tied in the light colors for the centerpieces with the flowers.  The day was so smooth and set up was a breeze because of the ladies at New Creations.  Love working with this team to create a fantastic day for an amazing couple!

Celebration of Love-Derek + Kevin

These first three pictures are what it's all about for me.  That high five, the tears and the smiles, it makes my heart happy and to know that I did my job and I did it right..such a great feeling!  Weddings and events are stressful...will they love it, will they even like it, not to mention the stress of getting everything done before those early guests show up.  This one I have to say...I nailed.  And I know this because of these three pictures as well as their hugs at the end of the night and their email the next morning.  Looking back at these gorgeous photos makes all the wonderful feelings rush in.

My only regret with this wedding is that I didn't get to know this amazing couple outside of the many emails we exchanged.  They were a dream couple.  Every vendor from this day had nothing but fantastic things to say about Derek & Kevin...and really we all wanted to do this day over because it was so good and went so fast.  The ease of the day was because of Bridget with Perfectly Posh and her team.  So organized and so easy to work with.  Love her and her assistant for the day, Jenn!  These pictures...just gorgeous!  Derek & Kevin looked so dapper and so comfortable in front of the camera.  Not surprised though, Melissa is amazing!!!  I love when you can feel how the day went through their pictures.  She caught their laughter, celebration and their softer moments.  So many favorites out of this wedding!  Baked did their cake and of course it was amazing.  I love it when a cake barely needs flowers or greenery because it is so pretty on it's own.

Such a fantastic day for an amazing couple.  I am so happy I was able to be a part of their special day.  Thank you to all the vendors!!!  High five to everyone!!!
