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.

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! :)

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!

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.

Megan + John

Date: July 3, 2017

Location: The Foundry by Herban Feast, Seattle, WA

Planner: Molly Corr of Bridal Bliss

Photographer: Matthew Land Photography

Floral Design: Rusted Vase Floral Co.

Hair & Makeup: Belle Marie Salon

Catering: Herban Feast

DJ: Otto Matic

Rentals: CORT & Vintage Ambiance

Cake: The Sweet Side

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!

If I could dream up my own wedding, it would be similar to Tessa & Evan's. Simple and sweet. Happy grins around every corner and the sweetest little details. While looking through their gallery, I teared up multiple times. Their wedding is the perfect mix of boho chic and PNW adventure. Not to mention an amazing color palette filled with warm, rich tones. The photos from Jacquelyn Portolese are INCREDIBLE. You can feel the love that Tessa, Evan and their families share, it is a really beautiful thing.

She emits a calming, passionate energy that is contagious. Over the period of a few days, participants of Color Theory are immersed in an intensive floral design and styling workshop combined with some of the BEST meals I've ever had! Ashley surrounds herself with a truly incredible team of kind, supportive humans that made my time at Color Theory so special.
