Christine and Mark – A Unique Wedding at the Seattle Aquarium

Beautiful Seattle Aquarium Wedding

Happy First Anniversary, Christine and Mark!! A little over a year ago this super-awesome couple celebrated their beautiful and unique wedding at the Seattle Aquarium. Christine was the dream bride and a dream client – I surely miss our meetings together in which we planned, laughed, created, and came up with so many lovely details. We incorporated elements like succulents and fern curls to create an event that feels very northwest but with unexpected touches of luxurious orchids.  The chartreuse and purple floral color palate with lots of gold accents was so sharp and so fun!

We custom built her wedding arch and adorned it with silk, lots of greenery, and purple flowers. And we were in love with the long guest tables decorated with elevated and low centerpieces and tons of candles! And how unique is that ice curtain as divider between lounge and dinner reception?! And those little succulents for guest favors?!

Christine didn’t shy away from texture, unusual floral elements, and unique flowers. We incorporated a huge succulent into her bouquet, and she used large orchids in her hair. Just wow!!

This awesome wedding was flawlessly planned and coordinated by Merry Beth of Aisle of View and photographed by Kim and Loren of Alante Photography. Party Rentals by Cort and BBJ Linen, ice features by Creative Ice!

 

Beautiful Indian Wedding at Kiana Lodge

17bFlora-Nova-Design-Indian-wedding-kiana-lodge

Anita and Ab were so lovely and certainly are not afraid of bold, bright colors! For their late spring Indian wedding we were able to include some of our favorite flowers, peonies, ranunculus and poppies! What a stunning bouquet they made!

The weather was not quite cooperating – it drizzled all day out at Kiana Lodge – but how could you be upset about that with such a fun wedding party and those cheerful colors surrounding you. We love these images by the ever so fabulous Shane Macomber!! I am especially in love with the pictures of the couple holding fun umbrellas!!

For the ceremony we scattered a lush bed of thousands of rose petals and lined the aisle with beautiful urn arrangements. Along with the talented gals at Perfectly Posh Events we were able to create a wedding that is a brightly colored feast for your eyes! One of our favorites this past spring!!

Shelly and Dave – Elegance at Sodo Park Seattle

Sodo Park with Herban Feast Wedding by Azzura Photography

Any wedding we get the pleasure of using gorgeous Cafe Au Lait dahlias is bound to be one of our favorites of the season, Dave and Shelly’s wedding at Sodo Park was no exception! What beautiful colors with the pops of juicy berry reds, muted pinks, and lots of greens, trailing ivy, and mossy elements. We had so much fun planning and designing this beautiful wedding with Shelly and her lovely mom! Their exquisite style expressed itself in every single design element and detail – we loved it!!

With all the sparkle of sequined table cloths, gold accents and candle light this wedding shone bright! We especially love details like their invitations matching the look and feel of the floral used in their wedding!

With a delicious meal prepared by Herban Feast and lots of dancing the guests and the Bride and Groom had a lovely evening to remember! With Day-of coordination by Perfectly Posh Events, all was captured by the talented Azzura Photography, enjoy looking at all these beautiful images!

Justine and Bryant – A Romantic Wedding at DeLille Cellars

Flora-Nova-Design-Seattle-Romantic-Delille-Wedding-18

Wow! What a handsome couple these two make! I think you’ll agree that these on-point moody photos by the talented Ben Blood perfectly capture the feel of these two beautiful people and their equally beautiful wedding.

With a venue as lovely as DeLille Cellars we didn’t need super elaborate flowers and instead focused on the wedding arch which we created using white lace and big clusters of flowers on either side and other special details such as the brides flower crown. Justine loves babies breath and we loved her for it! We were able to use touches of it everywhere: the flower crowns for her sweet flower girls, in the composite style centerpieces, the arch, and of course her bouquet!

Herban Feast catered a delicious meal for everyone, along with a mariachi band and dancing into the night this was one FUN, unique party!!

Classic White Wedding at the Four Seasons Hotel Seattle

Luxurious Wedding at Four Seasons Hotel Seattle, by Flora Nova Design

What a lovely couple and a beautiful wedding we have to show you today! Melissa and Andy’s wedding was truly a classic and tasteful event at the Four Seasons Hotel in Seattle, photographed by the talented Yours by John.

We used roses, hydrangea, dahlias and phalaenopsis orchids in a white color palate with hints of champagne and dusty rose. By designing large pavé style tall arrangements, using gold elements, and lots of candles we were able to create a truly timeless, romantic event! Beautiful weddings like Melissa and Andy’s will never go out of style!

The ceremony featured a gorgeous arch we designed using dupioni silk, topped with hundreds of flowers in a compact style and strands of crystal hanging down. An over-the-top and stunning focal point for their special day! The aisle was lined with more beautiful flowers and candles! What a perfect wedding for such a beautiful couple!

An Elegant Seattle Outdoor Wedding at The Admiral’s House

Oh, this wedding of Caroline and Patrick!! Just wow! As soon as I saw these terrific images from La Vie Photography I was over the moon! I mean – just look at this gorgeous couple and the location of their reception! The couple chose to celebrate their wedding day at the Admiral’s House which offers a fabulous view of the city, the sound, the mountains, and the Seattle harbor.

We had a fantastic time collaborating with Holly-Kate and Company and the bride coming up with a color palette and a decor plan matching Caroline’s very own style and vision. We designed lush garden-style pieces incorporating muted pastel colors with lots of trailing greenery and blooming spring foliage. And luckily it was peony season too! Swoon – I’m so in love with the outcome – dreamy designs using so many of our favorite spring elements: anemones, garden spray roses, peonies, clematis, ranunculus, and lush garden greens.

Two Beautiful Brides – Golf Club at Newcastle Wedding

66Flora-Nova-Design-two-brides-newcastle-wedding
We can’t wait to show you the photos from this bright, joyful and light filled celebration of love that took place at the beautiful New Castle Golf Club. It featured an all white color palatte for the ceremony tent with two beautiful entrance pieces. There were thousands of white rose petals lining the sides of the aisle, and at the front, stunning tall white columns exploding with blooming branches and orchids. The stage was set for our two beautiful brides Keshia and Alyson! 

Each of our brides carried bouquets that were distinctly unique but their designs were unified through a shared color palette – later used throughout the reception ballroom.

The colors for the reception were lavenders, greens, light blues, and white. The trailing elements and succulents perfectly captured a beautiful gardeny summer style. We loved creating the personal details like the herb bunches placed on each napkin to make each guest feel welcomed and special.

It was perfectly beautiful weather and a perfect celebration for two lovely brides!

The Gorgeous Wedding of Brita and Richie

The wedding of Brita & Richie had it all: a wonderful couple, a tremendously generous family offering their most amazing property for this wedding, a bride with impeccable style, a stellar vendor team, farm animals, a huge custom designed tent, over 3000 white garden flowers specifically planted on-site for the wedding, uncountable pretty little details to make a most memorable wedding day! The list is long.

This large event for 260 guests was planned, designed, and coordinated by the fabulous team of Vows Wedding and Event Planning – their amazing vision brought it all together. And the pictures by the fun duo of O’Malley Photographers are to die for.

This was such a fun project for us: we covered the church aisle with greenery and candles, created the most gorgeous floral backdrop for the head table, hung several large greenery wreaths in the tent ceiling, designed centerpieces featuring garden roses, dahlias, and peonies, made little herb bundles for each place setting, created fun pool floats, and decorated so many fun areas throughout the property – too many to count. The outcome was so pretty!! But see for yourself.

Luxury Wedding at The Seattle Tennis Club

I can’t believe it’s taken me so long … but finally I am blogging the gorgeousness of Hannae and Ian’s wedding at the Seattle Tennis Club. I am so in love with these stunning images by Laurel McConnell who – as always – did a breathtaking job capturing this glamorous day. And it sure was a glamorous wedding with lots of sparkle and uncountable amounts of orchids – luxury pure – and all flawlessly executed by the fabulous planner team of Vows Wedding and Event Planning.

I remember Hannae and Ian’s wedding day clearly – it was a warm summer day in mid August. In the morning it looked like their outdoor wedding ceremony might not happen: it had drizzled all morning. But just in time it had stopped raining and the sun came out – which made for even more beautiful outdoor shots of their wedding.
