A Seattle Rooftop Wedding

Martha and Mick Tie The Knot at The Nest in Seattle

Martha and Mick’s intimate Seattle rooftop wedding is likely one of our top 5 weddings of 2021. The location, the couple’s style, the neutral color palette, the floral choices – all so swoonworthy!

An Elegant Outdoor Setting

Many of our 2021 couples looked for ways to have the safest setting possible for their wedding day. And outdoor venues were certainly an attractive option – especially during the pandemic. No better place for an intimate celebration than The Nest rooftop bar at The Thompson Hotel in Seattle. With vast views across the Puget Sound to West Seattle and the Olympic Peninsula, The Nest is one of our favorite outdoor venues in Seattle.

This wedding was a feast for the eye. Beautiful floral arrangements, a grand blooming floral arch, modern lucite touches, a clear tent, a grand twinkle light installation, greenery chandeliers, masses of candles – and of course the view. A true truly stunning wedding.

The Floral Details

Martha and Mick envisioned designs in whites and creams mixed with lots of lush eucalyptus greenery. Martha’s favorite flower is the Panda anemone – the delicate white bloom with a black center. 2021 was a challenging year for specific floral wishes as we were facing major disruptions and shortages throughout the year. But luckily our suppliers pulled through and we got them! We created lush garden designs of ivory roses, white ranunculus, white lisianthus, white stock and delphinium, and of course Panda anemones.

A Seattle Rooftop Wedding Ceremony

For the ceremony we created a large, asymmetric arbor blooming with cream and ivory roses. We lined the aisle with floral pieces propped onto clear lucite pedestals, lots of hurricane candles, and lanterns. The ceiling was decorated with greenery vines. And all this with the grandest views across the sound. It truly was a quintessential Seattle Rooftop Wedding!

The Intimate Wedding Reception

For the intimate dinner reception the couple opted for one long guest table seating about 40 guests. We lined the long table with low centerpieces and lots of taper candles. Velvet linens and clear lucite ghost chairs completed the look. And the grand twinkle chandelier in the tent ceiling provided a soft glow and was perfecting the ambiance. Such a pretty setting!
