A Midsummer Night’s Dream Wedding: Marielle and Casey
Marielle and Casey’s dreamy summer wedding was one of our team’s absolute favorite weddings of 2019. This lovely couple wanted to capture the drama and romance of a Midsummer’s Night Dream with their August wedding, and they certainly did it! They hired us for our “Signature Flora Nova” package, so we got to design all aspects of this beautiful wedding day. So fun!!
Marielle chose a floral wedding dress and the rest of the wedding party wore a mix of soft blues and sage green. Summery white florals mixed with abundant flowing greenery and accents of grapevine, rich dark wood, and touches of gold throughout the ceremony and reception decor. The wedding was held at The Golf Club at Newcastle, an iconic Seattle venue with a killer view of Lake Washington, the Olympic mountains, and both downtown Bellevue and Seattle.
A Midsummer Night’s Dream Wedding Ceremony Under the Tent
Is there anything more summery than a white tent wedding?? Guests entered the marquee through a lush greenery arch and found the interior transformed into an enchanted fairyland (and isn’t that what a midsummer night’s dream wedding is all about?!?). Green smilax vines dripped from the central chandeliers and climbed the draped walls. Gardenia blooms greeted guests as they took their seats on long wooden benches on either side of the long white aisle. And at the front, a towering four-posted arch of grapevine, smilax vines, and white roses created the perfect canopy for the couple’s exchange of vows.
On to the Party!
After a cocktail reception on the sunlit terrace, guests dined in the greenery filled ballroom. Custom built wooden trellises framed each of the long vineyard tables. These were draped with vines and hung with delicate hanging votive candles. Each of the ballroom’s eight chandeliers were also hung with vines, and tall crystal vases filled with greenery created the illusion of indoor trees on the tables. As a special touch, the bride’s family commissioned custom made sliced wooden charger plates embellished with the couple’s monogram – a gift for each guest.
