Elissa and Upshur’s Spring Wedding at Chihuly Garden and Glass
I am so very excited to finally blog about this beautiful and amazing wedding of Elissa and Upshur! When you look at the stunning images by Barbie Hull Photography you’ll understand why.
We will remembered this wedding as one with the sweetest couple, the most impeccable style, at one of the most beautiful venues in town, and with an A list vendor team led by the ever so amazing team of Sprinkled In Seattle. As a designer what more can you want from a dream job!
The Ceremony with a Lucite Chuppah and and Abundance of Spring Flowers
One of our favorite elements of this wedding was the custom designed clear lucite chuppah. It created an effect that made the flowers and greenery on top appear to float … So dreamy! We lined the aisle with greenery garlands and large flower arrangements featuring seasonal spring flowers. For all bouquets and designs we used a mix of large local calla lilies, hydrangea, parrot tulips, roses, viburnum, blooming spirea, and trailing green amaranthus.
A Reception at Chihuly Garden and Glass
The reception on this beautifully sunny spring day was our favorite part of the day. We draped the round guest tables in off-white Shantung linens. And we used clear lucite chairs and clear crystal vases to perfectly complemented the airy and light feel under the glass roof. Then we designed a mix of tall and low floral arrangements featuring local spring flowers and lush spring foliages. Gold elements throughout – the beautiful glass charger plates, gold votive candles, and gold vases – gave the whole evening a classy and uber-elegant feel. Swoon!
In the many planning meetings with Elissa and her mom Donna it soon became clear that this spring wedding at the Chihuly Garden and Glass would be simply stunning. I loved Elissa’s style: modern elegance of clean lines paired with organic floral and greens. The designs with an abundance of local tulips and poppies and calla lilies were a perfect fit for the Chihuly Glasshouse and complemented the ceiling art beautifully.
