A Navy Blue and Burnt Orange Wedding: Amber and Chris

Amber and Chris’ September wedding at Chihuly Garden and Glass was a colorful, festive affair for this super-sweet couple. Coordinated by the talented Rebecca at New Creations Weddings, this wedding played with color, transitioning from a softer pastel peach and butter yellow palette during the daytime ceremony to the deeper, more dramatic navy blue and burnt orange palette for the reception.

A Peach and Butter Yellow Ceremony surrounded by flowers

Amber and Chris’ ceremony took place in the Glass House under Chihuly’s large orange and yellow glass ceiling installation. A floral arc studded with dahlias, roses, stock, and eucalyptus surrounded the officiant and couple. Amber’s bouquet featured huge frilly lisianthus, apricot garden roses, butter yellow stock, and the sweetest peach dahlias. The bridesmaids’ bouquets featured a slightly brighter color palette of peach, apricot, and orange.

An evening wedding reception in navy blue and burnt orange

As the evening wore on, deeper shades of navy blue and burnt orange were featured in the reception. Stunning navy blue velvet couches and table linens added richness. Copper charger plates were topped by navy blue napkins and a burnt orange dahlia for each guest. Tall floral arrangements perched on top of crystal vases, loaded with burgundy smokebush, orange and burgundy dahlias, peach stock, and orange and coral roses. Copper, rose gold, and dark gold votive candles added their glow as well.

Lake Washington Wedding: Amanda and Joe’s Intimate Backyard Affair

It is always an honor to be invited to participate in a family’s intimate celebration, especially when a family invites us into their home. Amanda and Joe’s August wedding took place at Amanda’s childhood home on the shores of Lake Washington. The family welcomed our team into their private celebration so warmly and it was so much fun to help make this wedding day a treasured family memory. Amanda and Joe’s first look took place in the apple orchard – and can you imagine a more picturesque setting? Amanda’s bouquet features high summer flowers in red, burgundy and blush set off by deep greens and browns. Lush dahlias, sweet zinnias, local garden roses, amaranthus, and rudbeckia nestled in a bed of raspberry leaves, and deep blue velvet ribbons tied around the stems lent that “something blue.”

A Wedding Ceremony on the Shores of Lake Washington

The wedding ceremony took place on the lawn overlooking Lake Washington. A lush floral arc encircled the couple, filled with summer flowers: tall delphinium and amaranthus; raspberry, camelia, abelia, and ferns; large blush roses and delicate red sprays; zinnias, echinacea, cornflower, and lots of burgundy dahlias. Floral posies decorated the chairs down the aisle, attached with multi-colored ribbon streamers.

A Backyard Reception

For Amanda and Joe’s lakeside reception, large picnic blankets and pillows were set out on the lawn, mixed with low and high tables for guests to enjoy as the evening wore on and the sun set across the water. The large tree beside the patio was hung with glass orbs filled with fairy lights and roses. A buffet was set out on an antique cart, and guests drank from azure blue goblets (all provided by Vintage Ambiance!). Large lanterns and hurricane candles lined the dock, lighting the way for guests who wanted to take a stroll along the water. At the end of the evening’s celebration, family and friends gave Amanda and Joe a sparkling send off. Congratulations to this lovely couple!!

An Orange Summer Wedding: Lauren and Dan at Chihuly Garden and Glass

Lauren and Dan’s August wedding was a riot of summer color. We mixed together all shades of orange – from soft apricot to fiery tangerine to dark burnt orange – with pale and bright yellows, bright green, and touches of sage blue-green. Lauren’s bouquet was a classic rounded bouquet filled with textural flowers and greenery: creamy spray roses, apricot colored garden roses, showy orange dahlias, dainty butter yellow scabiosa, and cheerful craspedia were mixed with bright green raspberry foliage and sage green eucalyptus and succulents.

A Summer Wedding Reception in Orange and Yellow

After their ceremony at St Ignatius Chapel, Lauren, Dan, and all of their family and friends celebrated together in the gorgeous Glasshouse at Chihuly Garden and Glass. The clean glass, white metal arches, and fiery orange blown glass installation served as the inspiration for the reception decor. Crisp white linens were laid on a mix of round and rectangular tables and a variety of centerpiece styles were used throughout the room for interest. Most certainly the showpiece of the room, the white wedding cake featured a miniature bride and groom battling a large orange dragon (beautifully created by Baked Custom Cakes!).

A Backyard Garden Wedding: Sativa and Bobby

Set in the gardens of a friend’s private estate, Sativa and Bobby’s July wedding was a romantic, intimate gathering for their close friends and family. This couple hoped to recreate some of the magic of a midsummer night’s dream for their backyard garden wedding- and we were happy to help. Sativa glowed in a flowing white gown and her bridesmaids wore light pink. The bouquets featured a lush mix of all different kinds of cream and blush roses accented with eucalyptus.

A Backyard Garden Ceremony on the Shores of Lake Washington

The ceremony was held on the shores of Lake Washington, the blue water sparkling in the sun. Sativa and Bobby exchanged vows under a romantic arch draped in cream silk and green smilax vines. At the aisle entrance, large urns filled with viburnum, oakleaf hydrangea, foxglove, and fairy roses were the perfect compliment to the gorgeous gardens on the estate.

Dinner under the most perfect backyard wedding tent

After cocktails and hors d’oeuvres on the terrace, the guests adjourned to the white tent, where long tables beckoned. Green smilax vines hung from the ceiling and sides of the tent, bringing the lush greenery of the gardens in. The long tables were set with green garlands, sweet floral compotes, and an eclectic mix of gold candelabras (provided by the fabulous Vintage Ambiance!). The couple’s wooden sweetheart table sat in the center, adorned with a sumptuous floral and greenery runner, and accented with more taper candles. A magical dinner party, to be sure!

A White Orchid Wedding at the Four Seasons: Courtney and Patrick

Courtney and Patrick’s glamorous white orchid wedding last July at The Four Seasons Seattle was a stunner! This couple envisioned a classically elegant black-tie affair in clean white and the palest blush – and our team was happy to help.

Luxurious Wedding Ceremony under the Lucite Arch

Courtney and Patrick exchanged vows beneath a stunning clear lucite arch dripping with white phalaenopsis orchids and topped with roses. Against the floor to ceiling windows overlooking Elliot Bay, the lucite arch seemed to disappear, giving the illusion that the floral was floating in mid-air. Down the aisle, tall floral arrangements of hydrangea, roses, stock, and even more orchids floated above the guests, propped up on tall crystal vases and lucite pedestals. To top it all off, the clean white canvas aisle runner was decorated on either side with dozens of glass hurricanes and romantic white roses petals.
