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.

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!

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.

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!

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.
