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.

A Fabulous Reception in All White

While the guests sipped cocktails and nibbled hors d’oeuvres, our team worked with the fantastic Four Seasons staff to completely transform the ballroom from ceremony to reception. I am always in awe when I see such dedicated, hardworking professionals come together and flip a space so quickly . To the guests it appears effortless, but we know how much effort actually goes on behind the scenes!

For their reception, Courtney and Patrick and their guests dined at a mix of round and long tables, laid with textured white linens, crisp white chargers, and lots and lots of candles. The tall white arrangements previously used down the aisle now graced the round dining tables. The long tables were decorated with tall silver and crystal candelabras and low floral arrangements. As the sun set, hundreds of candles placed along the grand staircase glowed. The stunning lucite ceremony arch became a beautiful backdrop for the tall white cake, decorated with a cascade of roses and orchids. What an amazing wedding!

A Cream and Blue Wedding: Christine and James

Christine and James’ dreamy cream and blue wedding at Chateau Lill was a classic spring wedding. The bridesmaids wore soft blue gowns, and the groomsmen looked breezy and cool in blue suits. Our bride Christine stunned in a gorgeous cream wedding dress, complete with train. For their florals, our couple leaned in to all the best June has to offer: blousy white peonies, fragrant garden roses, sweet blue tweedia, ranunculus, sweet peas, enormous local calla lilies, scabiosa, and delicate raspberry foliage.

A Chateau Lill Ceremony under the Trees

Chateau Lill is a gorgeous venue, and one of the best parts is the picture-perfect ceremony location overlooking the lake and shaded by towering cedar trees. For their ceremony, Christine and James chose to keep the decor simple since the scenery was already doing the heavy lifting in the decor department. A simple circle arch studded in creamy roses and peonies served as a sweet ceremony backdrop. Two large gold compote arrangements placed on wine barrels (Chateau Lill is a winery after all) marked the aisle entrance, and small floral posies attached to the white chairs lined the aisle.

Dinner under the White Tent.

Textured cream linens set with gold flatware and delicate bone china were accented by french blue napkins in the reception tent. Gold compotes overflowed with peonies, roses, tweedia, stock, and greenery. The long wooden head table was lined with a greenery garland, cream roses, and lots of taper candles. And the circle arch, so pretty under the trees at the ceremony, found a new home behind the bride and groom’s chairs at the head table, perfectly framing the happy couple.

An Outdoor Wedding at the Admiral’s House: Ginger and Michael

Outdoor weddings in Seattle are always a risky proposition, but the weather was certainly on this lucky couple’s side! The sun shone down on Ginger and Michael’s sweet outdoor wedding at Seattle’s historic Admiral’s House on the Magnolia Bluff. The couple chose a white and blush color palette for their garden wedding and let us play with all the soft spring texture available in May. Fragrant peonies, garden roses, spirea, sweet peas, phlox, tulips, tweedia, delphinium, hosta, and delicate jasmine vine combined to create soft, romantic, flowing florals that perfectly complimented their surroundings.

A Beautiful Day for a Wedding in the Garden!

Ginger and Michael said their “I Do-s” in front of an iron garden arch draped with greenery, roses, and arching delphinium. The bridesmaids’ blush gowns coordinated beautifully with the soft tones of the florals. After the garden ceremony, the guests dined under a billowy white tent set with long tables, wooden vineyard chairs, and lush low floral. The place settings combined white and delicate gold, a stylish contrast to the deep navy napkins. Trailing greenery climbed the tent legs behind the long head table, adding an interesting focal point for the toasts. A perfect setting for such a lovely occasion!

A White Peony Wedding: Rebecca and David’s Glamorous Wedding at the Bellevue Club

When wedding planner Amber of A Renee Weddings and Events asked us to be a part of Rebecca and David’s June wedding at the Bellevue Club, we jumped at the chance. This couple wanted to create a modern, glamorous black-tie affair with lush mounds of white and blush floral and a show-stopping floral chuppah. We knew that ours was the right team for the job!

An Incredible Ceremony

Rebecca and David’s glamorous ceremony at the Bellevue Club was a feast for the eyes. Creamy sheer draping (by the fabulous team at Prop Gallery Events!) enveloped the ballroom, softly uplit in blush. A towering Dupioni silk chuppah anchored the room, the top covered with a thick blanket of lush roses, peonies, and stock. Down the aisle, tall floral arrangements perched on tapered crystal vases placed atop mirrored pedestals. Groupings of twinkling glass hurricane candles peeked out between the pedestals, their light bouncing off the mirrored surfaces. Finally, a long white canvas aisle runner and rose petals led the way to the front.

An Enchanting Reception

After enjoying cocktails, the guests returned to the draped ballroom to find it transformed for dinner. A custom gobo with the couple’s names and wedding date shown on the dance floor. The tall aisle arrangements now graced several of the round and rectangular dinner tables, surrounded by stemmed floating candles and gold mercury glass votives. A long head table sat in front of the floral chuppah, now restyled into an arch which served as a lovely frame for the couple as they dined. A truly beautiful event for a truly lovely couple. Congratulations Rebecca and David!

An Elegant Country Club Wedding: Haley and Brenden at Sand Point Country Club

Haley and Brenden’s May wedding was a soft, romantic spring wedding in white and green. This sweet couple celebrated their ceremony in the beautiful Saint Anne Chapel at Villa Academy before heading over to the Sand Point Country Club for dinner and dancing. Haley wore a classic white wedding gown and carried a gorgeous flowing bouquet of fragrant white peonies, garden roses, and tiny garden spray roses, accented with spiral eucalyptus, italian ruscus, and veronica.

A Romantic Ceremony at Villa Academy

The Saint Anne Chapel at Villa Academy was a perfect backdrop for Haley and Brenden’s romantic ceremony. Guests entered the building through a lush greenery arch studded with roses and delphinium. Inside the chapel, gold urns placed on either side of the altar overflowed with spring flowers: snowball viburnum, showy peonies and roses, delphinium, and spirea. The bridesmaids wore blue, echoing the ethereal blue of the Chapel’s domed ceiling.

Dinner and Dancing at Sand Point Country Club

The dining room of the Sand Point Country Club was the setting for Haley and Brenden’s reception, and the crisp white paneled walls, dark wooden beams, and towering fireplaces served as a beautiful backdrop for the green and white color palette. The fireplace behind the square head table was decorated in a full greenery garland, and the room’s brass chandeliers were draped in greens as well. The mix of round and long rectangular dining tables held a collection of compote arrangements that bloomed in fabulous spring flowers. Gold accents in the chivari chairs, charger plates, and compotes lent a warmth to the room, and a mix of clear glass votive candles twinkled.
