The Romantic Seattle Outdoor Wedding of Katie and Eddie
Katie and Eddie celebrated their Seattle outdoor wedding in July of 2021. Due to the pandemic they were one of our couples who chose to reschedule their wedding date from the summer of 2020 to July of 2021. So trying to keep pandemic risks at a minimum, for their July 2021 wedding date they greatly reduced their guest count and moved their wedding completely outdoors. The ceremony, cocktail hour, and dinner reception took place on the outside patio at the Hyatt Regency South Lake Washington and what a stunning affair it was!
Summer Flowers for a Summer Wedding
We fell in love with the color palette and design style as soon as we saw the couple’s inspiration board: grand arrangements of blush roses, dahlias, and ranunculus with tall orange eremurus, blue and white delphinium, rich smoke bush foliage, paired with lots of textured garden greenery and elements. Swoon!
For her bouquet, Katie wanted to go large with trailing elements. We designed a romantic, hand-tied bouquet featuring mainly roses and dahlias and trailing jasmine and long-stemmed astilbe added texture and movement.
For the ceremony we created grand arrangements of various sizes placed into large brown urns. For a staggered look we placed two of those tall urns on top of tall brown pedestals. These urns were overflowing with an abundance of colorful, mostly local garden flowers: dahlias in all sizes and many shades of blush, orange, and coral. Tall blue delphinium, red amaranthus, and various colored, textured greens. This created a dramatic and super-pretty backdrop!
The Outdoor Wedding Reception
The intimate dinner reception for just 40 guests was a truly romantic and stunning summer affair. The couple chose tables draped in specialty linens, woven French country chairs, elegant glass charger plates, lots of candles, and gorgeous floral arrangements to create an atmosphere to be remembered. And tall centerpieces with lots of candles on every table assured a wow effect and the towering ceremony pieces served as gorgeous backdrop behind the head table. Just wow!
Guests enjoyed a balmy summer evening with great views of Lake Washington until late into the night.
