I am TO-TA-LLY excited to share these pictures today! Everything about this wedding was perfect! The super cute bride and her mother, the wedding venue, the color theme, the style and feel of the day. Needless to say it was one of my favorites this year!
Because Molly and Preston live in California, I mainly got to “play” with the bride’s mother Nicki – and boy …, did we have fun! No corners were cut to make this the perfect day for the wedding couple. And Rubin Photography simply did a fantastic job capturing the fun of the day!
Molly and Preston tied the knot this past July – their wedding ceremony took place at grand St. James Cathedral and the sophisticated and so very elegant reception at Newcastle Golf Club. The whole day was filled with laughter, fun, and excitement – and … even the Seattle weather showed this lucky couple what a gorgeous summer day can look like in the Pacific Northwest! Not a cloud in the sky! Swoon!
For this beautiful wedding Flora Nova provided full event design services. We helped with and coordinated everything decor related: from chairs to table linens and draping, the umbrellas to the black and white dance floor, the entire table top and stationary, and of course all floral elements. So totally fun! Their color palette of yellow and black was paired with accents of silver and small hints of chartreuse green and we carried the palette throughout all those design components.
Molly’s gorgeously lush bouquet consisted of garden roses, cymbidium orchids, calla lilies, begonia, craspedia and proteas. The fully wrapped bouquet stems were adorned with a fun black and silver brooch.
Here our new wristlet design for moms and grandmas – the yellow orchid makes this a very elegant floral accessory!
The wedding reception in the Newcastle ballroom was breath-taking – the up-lit yellow centerpieces just popped on the otherwise black tables. Yellow and black is such a sophisticated color combination!
The grand centerpieces featured garden roses, orchids in abundance, dahlias, spider mums, and hydrangea. Shorter vases with more yellow flowers brought punches of yellow down to the table top.
I always suggest different center piece styles of various height and style. Some tables, like in the photo below, we designed a piece in break-away style: different vases contained flowers of a different kind. So cool!
And other tables were decorated with a low lush arrangement with floral spilling over the vase top.
It was all the little details – like the orchids tucked into each napkins and the different ribbons wrapped around the napkins – that made the table top so elegant.
Here, Molly’s beautiful bridal bouquet adorned the sweet heart table …
And of course, the black and white dance floor was just the dot on the “i”!
Wow! What a grand wedding cake! It created a beautiful focal point during the wedding reception!
The Newcastle staff always does such a beautiful job with the presentation of the cut wedding cake! Isn’t this cake plate just adorable?
