Glamorously Blush at the Fairmont

Welcome to our new blog – I hope you like the new layout and design!

In this first blog entry we want to feature a very special wedding from last November: the grand wedding of Carrie and Jeff at the Fairmont Olympic Hotel in Seattle, coordinated by the fabulous Katy from Vows Weddings, and so beautifully photographed by Tania from Azzura Photography.

So many beautiful details made this a day to remember: the stunning bride and her handsome groom, the grand Spanish Ballroom with its crystal chandeliers, sequin linens, specialty chairs, dramatic lighting (by Greenlight Event Design), special table top items, luxurious centerpieces, gold sugar rimmed champagne glasses, and so much more. Simply a memorable affair with a luxurious feel!

Carrie was the sweetest bride to work with. From the day we got together for our first meeting till the last planning session, she was always at ease, gentle, and just a pleasure to work with. And on her wedding day she was even happier than ever – when she and Jeff came to see the beautifully decorated ballroom before all the guests arrived she was all smiles and so excited. It was clear her vision for the day was realized!

A Wonderful Wedding at The Fairmont Olympic Hotel Seattle

Dani and Taylor’s summer wedding last July at the Fairmont Olympic Hotel will be remembered as one of our favorites – you will see why. A grand wedding ceremony arch, orchids galore, a wonderful color palette, beautiful details. An elegant affair Dani’s and Taylor’s wedding guests will cherish for a while!

We had the pleasure collaborating with the always fabulous Lisa Chambers of Chambers and Company  who impeccably planned and coordinated this beautiful wedding! Together with Lisa, Dani, and Dani’s mom we came up with a fabulous decor plan featuring soft lavender, cream, and silver accents throughout. The outcome was striking!

This ceremony was one of our favorites ever! We created a grand white arch blooming with long-stemmed orchids and flowering branches – a grandiose ceremony backdrop for Dani and Taylor’s wedding!

Now, this was a glamorous escort card display – trailing white orchids and local white calla lilies decorate the center of this large round table. Love the name cards arranged this way!

Elegant Fairmont Wedding in Classic White

As soon as I saw these beautiful images by Joe & Jill Photography of Brie and Bryan’s beautiful wedding at the Fairmont Olympic Hotel I couldn’t wait to share them with you. It is the time of year when I reflect back to a busy summer season and this wedding is one that stood out. I loved this wedding!! A wonderful couple, a beautiful venue, a great team of vendors – the outcome was a super-elegant celebration with a traditional, classic feel. And, as always, it was a pleasure working with Katy Roberts from Vows, who perfectly planned and coordinated the day’s activities.

Brie looked absolutely stunning in her princess gown – her bouquet included an elegant mix of peonies, garden roses, stephanotis, and hydrangea

For the ceremony, Brie’s father built a beautiful wooden arch (which now adorns the couple’s front yard), which we embellished with flowers and trailing greens

For the ceremony we designed tall and low vase arrangements – full and lush in style featuring orchids and local calla lilies.

After dark the vase up-lighting made the table centers “glow”! Submerged orchids inside the vase add interest and bring out the lighting even more.

And here some stunning images of the couple – which I can’t resist showing too. Just beautiful work Joe & Jill!!! Aren’t Brie and Bryan just a gorgeous couple!!

And lastly a couple more decor details …

Elegant Fall Wedding at the Fairmont Olympic Hotel Seattle

It’s been almost a year ago that we had the pleasure to work with Angela and Chris on their gorgeous wedding at the Fairmont Olympic Hotel in Seattle. It was an elegant and classy evening featuring floral and textiles in shades of red and lots of shimmering sparkle.
Angela and Chris are chefs and therefore foodies and a fabulous dinner menu at one of Seattle’s finest hotels was a must. As a whimsical personal touch to their floral decor we incorporated large cabbage roses to represent their love for everything food.
The ceremony and reception location was engulfed in silk, up-lighting, and lots of crystal strands – oh, and wait till you see the enormous crystal chandelier in the Garden Room below!
I loved Angie’s style and vision – the result was a fabulously elegant setting for their special day! Thank you Angie, for letting us be part of your big day!!

And thank you Yours By John Photography for the stunning images!!

Wonderful Wedding at the Fairmont Olympic Hotel Seattle

Emily and Takao celebrated such a beautiful wedding last September at the Fairmont Olympic Hotel – so classy! The Fairmont with it’s wonderful traditional setting lends the perfect environment  for an elegant wedding day.
The couple’s color palette was white, cream, champagne, and gold with plum and navy blue accents. We incorporated the beautiful waterfall phaleanopsis orchids throughout which gave the overall decor such a luxurious touch.
Thank you so much The Popes Photographers for the stunning images of their special day!

For the ceremony in the Spanish Foyer e lined the aisle with elegant orchid designs and large hurricane candles in crystal vases.
We created a grand entrance of silk drapes at the lower entrance to the Spanish Foyer as a divider from the rest of the hotel and also as a beautiful greeting for the arriving guests.
For the reception tables we design luxurious tall and low centerpieces featuring cream, white and champagne floral.
