Weddings at a private residence always have such a different vibe to them. There is different stress that goes into setting up, but it always feels like the families are just ready to have a great time. I don't think I have ever felt so much help from the couple's family and friends as I did with Shannon & Casey's. It was a gorgeous summer day and even if it wasn't, that view would have made up for it. This house on Camano Island was the groom's family home and it was gorgeous. Right on the water, lush green grass with a huge tent set up so their guests could sit together and enjoy their surroundings. Everyone was working on something. Family members arranging the centerpieces, getting the bar set up, and groomsmen putting the chairs out. It was fun to see so much love and attention go into something for a great couple and be set up so smoothly with a great coordinator like Katy at Seattle Stunning Events. Shannon had asked me to design the bouquets for her bridesmaids and junior bridesmaids as well as her bouquet. I also designed the flowers for an arch that Casey had made. This is one of my favorite arches this season. One side, full, lush and flowing in the wind. With the water as a gorgeous backdrop it just all looked so amazing! Such a beautiful day for this couple to share with their friends and family and to have it in such a special place to them.
When a simple design of mostly greenery and classic white flowers are brought together with amazing details, the end result is perfection! This wedding had many of my favorite elements...succulent favors (I have been dying to do these for an event) in gold vases, those amazing table numbers and gorgeous neutral bridesmaid dresses are just some of them.
Lots of greenery for the already beautiful ceremony area at Laurel Creek Manor. We used lanterns to line the aisle but then moved them to the centerpieces, that were then joined with white flowers and gold votives. Let's go back to those neutral bridesmaids dresses...so gorgeous and they all looked so amazing together. All flowing, some sparkling, soft palettes of neutral tones. They looked so great next to Savanna's beautifully detailed lace dress. All the guys looked so dapper in their suits with the succulents boutonnieres.
I can't tell you how excited I was when Savanna & Vince wanted succulents for their favors for their guests. I adore this idea and love how they look in the small vases with personalized tags. We added greenery to the reception tent behind where the bride and groom were sitting to give them a special backdrop. And their long wedding party table had a greenery runner with candles and the ladies bouquets. Greenery all around for the win!
This design was so beautiful, simple and everything complimented each other to make this gorgeous statement for a lovely couple. To end this unforgettable day the couple treated their guests to a fireworks show and had the best exit I have ever seen...a helicopter!!! Cheers to this amazing couple and this gorgeous day!!!

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.
