Chauanh + Gabriel

Date: August 12, 2017

Coordinator: Luma & Lavender

Photographer: Luma Weddings

Venue: Private Residence, Whidbey Island

Florals: Rusted Vase Floral Co.

Chauanh and Gabriel were married at a beautiful family home on Whidbey Island. The sun was shining and a light breeze rolled through the property, the perfect wedding weather! Family and bridal party members were bustling around, vendor teams were prepping food, folding napkins, and taking photos. It was laid back and intimate, one of my favorite wedding set ups! (Not to mention one of my favorite couples.)

I first met Chauanh & Gabriel at a coffee shop in Capitol Hill, they were silly, sweet, and so happy to be planning their wedding together. Their vision for florals was simple and lush, with a touch of the PNW beach. Gabriel's Dad built a custom driftwood arch for the ceremony that I wish I could have taken home with me, it was stunning! They fused together Vietnamese traditions with their romantic ceremony and reception, and everything went together beautifully!

One of the best details of the day was perhaps Chauanah's three dresses! One red, one white, one pink. Each representing a significant part of their cultures and commitment to one another.

Working alongside Haley & Kyle Goldie of Luma Weddings/Luma & Lavender is always fun and the images from Kyle are stunning! Take a peek below....!

Thanks Chauanh & Gabriel!

When I think back on the 2017 wedding season and all of the great couples and vendors I worked with, there are a few that stand out in particular. Lizzie & Carlo's wedding day is one of those special ones. They were sweet, down to earth, and gave me that "creative freedom" that we all crave. Lizzie knew what she wanted, and she trusted me to bring her vision to life. A warm and inviting wedding with modern and minimalistic style. A truly wonderful team was put together for this day, and I could not be more excited to share the STUNNING photos from The Popes! Thank you Lizzie and Carlo.

A day filled with laughter, group hugs at the altar, and SO many smiles. Erica & Eli's Sodo Park wedding was so lovely and elegant. Holly of Perfectly Posh events helped to curate a wonderful vendor team, and La Vie Photo truly captured all of the best moments and details. In my first meeting with Erica and her Mom, they both told me how much they loved big, full blooms. Luckily, late August in Seattle is PRIME dahlia season. We filled their centerpieces full to the brim with beautiful local product, accented with gold votives, bud vases, and hurricane candle. It really was a beautiful wedding. Thank you Erica & Eli, it was truly a pleasure to work with you! Xox

Nestled in to the Snohomish Valley sits one of my favorite rustic venues, Lord Hill Farms. The location is picturesque for those seeking an upscale yet rustic wedding venue. I worked with Danae of Perfectly Posh Events to help bring Mo and Nate's wedding vision to life. Their late Summer theme and color palette was to DIE for. I had so much  fun creating and designing for their wedding day. Mo and Nate gave me tons of creative freedom and it made for a truly special day. Thank you! Thank you Sasha Reiko for these beautiful photos too! Take a peek.....!

Matt + Keiko

A velvet wedding dress, two love birds, and one of the most epic dance parties of all time!

I worked alongside Danae of Perfectly Posh Events to bring Matt & Keiko's vision to life. If you ever have the chance to work with Danae, do it! She's a creative gem and someone I am lucky enough to call a friend-or, or in wedding industry language, someone who is a vendor AND a friend. 

We brought the outdoors, with vines trailing along Crimson Haze bistro lights, a romantic copper arch way, and greenery centerpieces. A quirky library book collection paired with globes, indoor plants, and textured blooms made guests feel as if they were in the house of a brilliant college professor. Sophisticated and organic all at the same time.

Be sure to check out these images from Carina Skrobecki. They are INCREDIBLE!

Chrissy + Bert

I met Chrissy at Roy Street Coffee in Capitol Hill a few months away from her wedding. She brought her Maid of Honor, Brittany along for support, and as soon as we started talking, I knew she was my type of bride! Sweet, funny, and down to earth. Chrissy & Bert were so easy to work with, we exchanged texts and emails over the next couple of months, and when their wedding day rolled around, I was SO excited to design their flowers! Their color palette was white and red. The red being for good luck.

Krista Welch of Krista Welch Creative took STUNNING photos, and I am so excited to share them with you!

Thank you Chrissy & Bert!

Fall in Love | Styled Shoot

It's my favorite time of year. Leaves are falling, pumpkin patches are over flowing, and the never ending season of hot coffee and scarves is upon us!  It is the perfect season for golden hour light, natural wind, and a romantic shoot in the great outdoors.

Erika of The Greatest Adventure Weddings and I put together a non-traditional pumpkin patch shoot with a really, really wonderful vendor team, and it turned out to be one of my favorite shoots of the year.

Lora + Max

Sometimes the best things come together unexpectedly, and at the last minute. Lora and Max contacted me shortly before their wedding explaining that their florist had cancelled and they were in need of a new florist. I am SO glad that they reached out. Lora and Max were both kind, grateful, and so in love. They shared intimate gifts with one another before their first look at the altar. Alex Lasota captured their day so beautifully. All of the small details, smiles and one of the cutest bridal party pups to date are below!

JB + SDP

A roof top courthouse ceremony followed by an intimate rehearsal dinner at Casco Antiguo started off Jesse and Sophia's epic wedding weekend. There are so many little details that made this my FAVORITE wedding of the year. Jesse and Sophia worked hard to bring their modern, artistic wedding to life. A stellar vendor team, hand painted artwork from the groom, unique decor touches (including a SUPER FUN photo booth back drop), and a custom made neon sign are just a few of the details that make this wedding so special. Thank you Jesse and Sophia for trusting me with your vision, and for letting me have so much artistic freedom with your florals.

There's few better places to elope than the PNW. You really can't beat the endless lakes, rivers, waterfalls and mountains Washington has to offer. This sweet couple enjoyed a laid back, bohemian inspired elopement in the woods, complete with pastries, florals and so much fun! A day filled with tons of love, laughter and lovely images captured by Kamra Fuller Photography.
