Working on Gretchen’s and Bret’s wedding last March was truly a pleasure! Gretchen and her family were such sweethearts to work with – we had so much fun planning for this wedding which I’d like to describe in short as “True Northwest Elegance!”
Gretchen is the sister of Airika Pope, wife of the talented husband and wife team The Popes Photography – you will see below how fabulously talented they truly are!! Thank you so much Airika for trusting me to do your sister’s wedding designs!! 🙂
Gretchen had a vision to incorporate many cool natural Northwest elements into the decor and the bouquets. And you probably know from earlier blog posts that I just love the rich flora the Northwest has to offer: from mosses, ferns, and succulents to lichen branches and local hellebore and tulips. We incorporated it all into lush and yummy designs in deep purples and greens.
Details of the ceremony decor: large designs of branches, ferns, hydrangea, cabbage roses were combined with tall hurricanes, river rock, succulents, and mosses.
For the rehearsal dinner the night before we created designs in similar fashion – but added some fun twists. The long guest table was a visual showcase for the richness in Northwest nature.
