Ponderosa & Thyme Workshop

Date: November 17, 2017

Location: Tendue, Portland, OR

Workshop Host: Katie Davis, Ponderosa & Thyme

Photographer: MacCoy Dean

Workshop Team: Mark Davis & Sarah Pearson

 

I am a firm believer that everything happens for a reason. Back in November, I was sitting in my van anxiously awaiting set up for a big event, and on a whim, I decided to register for The Ponderosa & Thyme Bouquet Workshop. I am here to tell you that I am so happy I trusted my gut, and so grateful that I made a spontaneous decision to go.

IT WAS WONDERFUL. MAGICAL. INSPIRING. All of the good things, truly!

I walked in to the beautiful Tendue space, and I was greeted by smiling faces and beautiful blooms. I immediately felt at home. 

Katie is an angel. She is the sweetest, most down to earth person I have ever met. She kicked off her shoes, invited us to eat, drink coffee, sip tea, and reflect together. 

We went through a flower meditation, foraging adventure, ate delicious meals and had the most wonderful GLUTEN FREE | VEGAN DONUTS from Katie's husband Mark of BigWig Donuts.

Katie's workshop staff included; Sarah Pearson, her husband Mark Davis, and photographer MacCoy Dean. Everyone was kind, supportive, and had their own inspiring stories to share.

Thank you for everything Katie, Mark, Sarah, and MacCoy. And thank you Antje, Robyn, Lindsay, and Emily for being yourselves, I feel lucky to have flower friends like you.

XO

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!

Anna + Mike

Date: June 17, 2017

Location: Maroni Meadows, Snohomish, WA

Photographer: Lora Grady Photography

Cake: Baked Seattle

Floral Design: Rusted Vase Floral Co.

There are a few times each wedding season that I meet a bride and instantly know that we are the perfect match. When I met Anna earlier this year, it was one of those encounters. I felt like we had been friends for years. When you pair that chemistry with an amazing vision and vendor team, it's likely that the wedding will be wonderful. Maroni meadows is tucked away on a quiet side road just above the Snohomish valley. It is a sweet backyard venue with just the right amount of decor. Lora Grady Photography blew me away with the photos, soft, romantic and beautiful. To see more of Lora's work and more from Anna & Mike's wedding, be sure to check out her blog here.
