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.

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!
