Travis and I are in a profession where we get to work with wonderful couples on a daily basis, and every so often the weddings of those couples end up being published in magazines…bonus! In the Real Weddings Section of the current issue of Seattle Metropolitan Bride & Groom Magazine, they featured one of our fabulous 2008 couples, Lauren & Bob, who are about to celebrate their one year anniversary. They got married at one of our absolute favorite spots for a local destination wedding, Roche Harbor Resort. (And to quickly boast, Sam, the Lodging and Events Director, recently posted some very kind comments about us on our blog here. We are just incredibly proud and humbled by his words.) Here is the spread from the magazine:
We had an incredible time working with this creative and thoughtful couple. Their lovely palette of white, chartreuse, and teal looked absolutely stunning at the historic waterside location.
Susie Hamidi, of Susie Hamidi Photography, brought her Southern charm to this Northwest event and captured Lauren & Bob’s special day. We appreciate all of the beautiful pictures! Here are some more of her images from their wedding.
Lauren’s amazing dress was from Marcella’s la Boutique, and her accessories were from Luly Yang and Abaloria. Lauren’s mother also had a stunning pale blue custom dress made by Luly Yang. On-site hair and makeup services were provided by Afterglow Spa.
The ceremony took place at the Sunken Garden across from the hotel. The Seattle Metropolitan Quartet provided incredible musical selections throughout the ceremony.
Bagpiper Kevin Auld (a surprise to the groom) led the wedding party and guests to the tented reception on the water.
The cocktail hour took place on the lawn in front of the tent. We found festive blue-green sheers from Pedersen’s Rentals to drape over the cocktail tables.
Moxie Paper Goods in West Seattle provided the rich letterpress invitations and lush paper coordinates. The lace linen photographed above (used on the cake table) was a specialty linen loaned from BBJ Linen.
We worked closely with Rented Elegance to create beautiful and natural flower designs that complimented the Pacific Northwest surroundings. Rented Elegance also dressed up the tent from ABC Rentals with a series of candlelit chandeliers & chartreuse drapes dressed with curly willow and hanging cups with candles to light the sky and keep the night aglow. The white pintuck dinner table linens, silver beaded chargers, and walnut chivari chairs were from ABC Rentals, and the napkins with the embroidered details were from BBJ Linen. We had so much fun with all of the details!
Roche Harbor Resort provided a Northwest inspired seafood menu that was absolutely incredible. The only thing better than the presentation (and showmanship as pictured above) was the actual taste!
The stunning yet simple sugar crystal covered cake was made by island favorite Carlene’s Cakes.
The reception music was provided by the always entertaining Craig Lawrence Band. They had the dance floor packed and even stayed an extra half hour with everyone moving and grooving.
