Danna and James were married at the Olympic Sculpture Park in Seattle on August 3rd, 2018. Their funky, PNW inspired wedding was a blast to design alongside Erika of The Greatest Adventure. Unique elements, lots of color and a great vendor team! See the photos below from Lyynsey of Lion Lady Photography!

Thanks Danna & James! :)

It's not often that when a photographer sends you "sneak peek" photos you cry and laugh and then cry and laugh some more. Lyynsey of Lion Lady Photography sent the best sneak peek album ever! I just couldn't wait! I had to share them.

I should start off by saying that Izzy + Porter were the greatest! The most laid back, care free, and silly couple to date. They trusted all of their vendors 100% and it was one of those creative freedom weddings where they just said "go with it!" The first time I met Izzy, she told me "Sorry Porter couldn't make it, he's playing D&D". I laughed and said "I like you guys already!" From there, Erika of The Greatest Adventure Weddings and I had a blast working on their design together.

A bright and cheery color palette mixed with a private waterfront venue made their day extra special. I even collaborated on their arbor with Izzy's Dad Dave. Their wedding is truly one for the books! See all of the magic below.

Thank you Izzy and Porter!

Ashley and Genesis were so great to work with. They were laid back, trusting, and had a clear vision of their needs. They also have two of the cutest pups of all time! Harper definitely stole the show with her hand made floral collar. Easily one of my favorite projects to date, check it out below!

Thank you Ashley and Genesis for allowing me to be a part of your day!

The best way to describe this day is "Wildly Romantic". Combining a few of my favorite things animals, the great outdoors, and weddings! I couldn't be more excited to share all of the epic beauty captured by Brenna Lasher.

A big thanks to Light of Dawn Wolf Dogs for sharing their beautiful furry friends with us. So many thanks and heart eyes! :)

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!

Megan & John's wedding was the perfect "Seattle" wedding. Rooftop first looks at the Thompson Hotel, bridal party photos in Pioneer Square, followed by a reception at one of Seattle's top wedding venues, The Foundry by Herban Feast.

When Molly of Bridal Bliss reached out to me about Megan and John's florals, she described the day as "romantic and classic with a nod to the South". My DREAM client. Megan is originally from Georgia, so we thought it would be fun to incorporate some peaches in to the head table decor with just a "pop" of peach in all of the arrangements. 

Megan and John's day turned out to be one of my absolute favorites of the year. A beautiful combination of classic and romantic with a modern and natural twist. Matthew Land Photography captured everything beautifully. When I opened their gallery for the first time I squealed, (literally). Thank you Matthew Land, your work is STUNNING!

Take a peek for yourself, you won't be disappointed!
