Heather & Tommy’s Sweet Garden Wedding at SoDo Park

Flora Nova Design Seattle Garden SoDo Park Wedding

Heather and Tommy’s July wedding at SoDo Park showcased a romantic garden feel in an urban industrial setting. Planner Stephanie Wilson of Every Last Detail coordinated this fun juxtaposition of styles and helped to create a sweet, joyful celebration for this lovely couple that worked really well!  Tasha Owen Photography captured the festivities in these beautifully detailed photographs:

Smilax vines draped the back of the chairs during the ceremony and graced the floral arch as well.  More greenery, flowers, and lanterns placed down the sides of the aisle complimented the sweet garden feel.  For the reception, the floral arch became the backdrop to the sweet heart table and centerpieces in mixed silver mercury glass and gold containers adorned the tables.  A beautiful event for a beautiful couple!

Belisa And Andrey – Intimate Summer Wedding

Flora Nova Design Seattle Intimate JM Cellar Summer Colorful Outdoor Wedding

I know we all need some pictures of bright flowers this time of year so I’m excited to show you Belisa and Andrey’s sweet and very colorful wedding last summer! The absolute perfect time to capture the bounty of dahlias, raspberry greens, blue cornflowers, roses, as well as all the delightful weather we have here in the northwest in August. We loved their idea of one long table for all the guests to gather together outdoors in the beautiful garden at JM Cellars! It made for the loveliest intimate wedding party under lights and the stars. The perfect bright happy summer wedding!

Jane and Kenny – Organic SoDo Park Wedding

Flora Nova Design Seattle - Organic SoDo Park Wedding

Jane and Kenny’s wedding last July at SoDo Park was a beautiful showcase of organic summer style.  Raspberry leaves, Meadowsweet Spirea, Ninebark, Kinnikinnick, Wisteria, Queen Anne’s Lace, and more: so many delicate summer greens to play with! Jane and Kenny chose to pair their delicious greenery with soft summer whites (think cosmos, nigella, scabiosa, garden roses, and clematis) and shimmering golds (candelabras, urns, and votives).

For their reception, Jane and Kenny chose to set three long dining tables down the length of the draped SoDo Park space for a clean, elegant look.  The live-edge wooden head table was graced with a greenery garland, tall gold candlesticks, and soft urn arrangements — a great place to party (see the happy party-goers in the bottom picture below!). A big thank you to David Cho Photography for capturing all of the gorgeous details.  Enjoy!

Reena and David – Colorful Indian Wedding at Seattle’s Edgewater Hotel

Flora Nova Design Seattle - Colorful Indian Wedding at the Edgewater Hotel. Dahlia Bouquet with Ribbon Streamers

Reena and David’s September wedding at Seattle’s Edgewater Hotel was a fabulous mix of Indian tradition with Northwest style, coordinated and planned by Natasha Larsen of The Invisible Hostess.  Beautiful turquoise, burnt orange, burgundy, coral, and gold shone against the Elliot Bay backdrop of one of our favorite waterfront venues.  Reena and David chose to incorporate soft garden touches in the Texas smilax and birch wood in their ceremony arch, as well as in the lush green of the raspberry foliage and maidenhair fern in the centerpieces and bouquets.  And bright summer dahlias were perfect with Reena and David’s color scheme – just look at how charming they are as garlands gracing the ceremony arch.

For the reception, Reena and David chose to incorporate antique books into their composite centerpieces, a whimsical touch alongside the burnished gold of the charger plates, urns, and candle holders.  The ceremony arch became a romantic backdrop for the couple’s sweetheart table, sparkling with a gold sequined linen and draped with greenery, roses, and dahlias. As you’ll see in the photos below, Erik and Marissa of Ciccarelli Photography captured these details beautifully.  It certainly was a magical event!

Hallie and David – A Beautiful Outdoor Wedding At Suncadia Resort

I can’t believe it’s been a year since those two lovebirds tied the knot at Suncadia Resort last Labor Day weekend. Happy Anniversary, Hallie and David!!

I loved working with these two! Ever since our first meeting, many months before their wedding day, I knew these two were made for each other. They are the most loving, warm, gentle-hearted people you will ever meet.

 

I was excited to hear they were planning their wedding at beautiful Suncadia Resort – a two hour drive east from Seattle just across the Cascade mountains. This gorgeous destination venue offers stunning mountainous backdrops – perfect for an outside wedding. The beautiful images by The Popes Photography give a glimpse of their perfect day, flawlessly planned and coordinated by Prive Events.

Beautiful Indian Wedding at 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

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

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

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

bridal bouquet

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.
