Jenny and Paul – Classic Blush Arctic Club Wedding

Flora Nova Design Seattle Blush bridal Bouquet with blushing bride, garden roses, and scabiosa

The very handsome couple Jenny and Paul held their classic blush wedding at the beautiful Arctic Club, it’s always the dream to have your aesthetic and decor match with your venue and this was the perfect pairing! This late spring wedding was filled with one of our favorite flowers that we wait all year for; peonies! Jenny’s classic rounded bouquet was filled with those beauties, as well as scabiosa flowers, and the aptly named and always sweet blushing bride! Beautiful and romantic.

This color palette of blush, dark greens, gold, black and white is crisp, fresh and looks just stunning in all the photos taken by the wonderful Melissa Kilner. Aren’t all the bridal photos perfect? Along with the planning of Megan from Clutch Events who makes every wedding she works on effortless and fun. We sure had a dream team with this one!

Luxury Seattle Wedding at the Arctic Club Hotel Dome Room

What a beautiful and luxurious wedding! Madalynn and Andrew tied the knot over Thanksgiving weekend in the fabulous Dome Room of the Arctic Club Hotel in Seattle. They celebrated in style and every detail was tended to – flawlessly coordinated by Stephanie Solomon of Solomon Event Planning. The day was beautifully captured by Yours By John and you might agree when you see the below pictures – his work is simply gorgeous!

For both Madalynn and Andrew, who grew up in the Northwest but don’t live in Seattle, this was a destination wedding. But this didn’t mean a big problem for them as at least their wedding venue was clear from the start: the beautiful vintage Arctic Club Hotel, which Andrew’s family owns.
Black long bride’s maids dresses paired with all white bouquets – adorned with ‘bling’ – look always classy!
The ceremony decor was simple yet super elegant – with tall glass vases lining the aisle, a round stage right in the center of the dome, an aisle runner, and a thick layer of rose petals –  all setup in a semi circle which was the perfect decor for the room.
The reception was simply breathtaking! In going with the existing colors of the ballroom we used ivory satin linens with a little sparkle, designed tall orchid centerpieces, paired this with clear acryllic chairs, draped the entrance to the back room, added table- and wall up-lighting and candle light which created the most romantic and luxurious atmosphere. Simply stunning!
The long head table was lined with low floral designed mixed with high and low glass candle holders and votives.
The cocktail lounge {provided by Rented Elegance} was part of the ballroom and provided the guests  a comfortable area to relax, mingle and chat.
Madalynn wanted us to incorporate lots of ‘bling’ into the decorations, and we had so much fun doing so: using bouquet jewels and diamond ribbon for the bouquets, using trailing crystal strands for the centerpieces, finding a table linen with rhinestones, and using a diamond ribbon to the cake.

A Romantic December Wedding

 Hayley and Michael tied the knot just last month – it was such a beautiful celebration infused with lots of candle light, a warm holiday-inspired color palette, and romantic vintage touches. Hayley looked absolutely stunning in her gorgeous lace dress – wow! To complement the style of her gown we designed a large bouquet with red roses, peonies, tulips, berries and lots of trailing orchid blossoms.
Such a beautiful picture of the couple and their brides maids…- Abbey Road in Seattle 🙂
The long maroon-red brides maids’ gowns were accented with bouquets in mostly creams and champagne colored flowers with hints of red to tie in with the dress color.
 The groom’s favorite flower –  a tulip. It always makes for a fun boutonniere …
The wedding reception took place at one of my favorite vintage venues in town – the Dome Room at the Arctic Club Hotel. It was the perfect venue to celebrate their elegant reception. The dinner tables were decorated with large crystal candelabras, large floral centerpieces, and lots and lots of candles. It couldn’t have been more romantic.

Beautiful Vintage Wedding – Kristi and Tim

I loved Kristi right from the start: her simple elegance, her natural beauty and down-to-earth character, her sweetness, and kindness … The day she walked into our studio to tell me more about her wedding plans she did not yet have a clear vision, but together we came up with a decor plan that completely embodied the couple’s style and personality.
Kristi and Tim got married last July at the Villa Academy chapel with the reception following at the Arctic Club Hotel in downtown Seattle. With both venues of a more traditional and vintage style, we wanted the decor to compliment the existing feel and style of those spaces: “simple vintage elegance!”

For Kristi’s bouquet I used romantic ‘old’ vintage flowers: David Austin garden roses, lisianthus, hydrangea, Queen Anne’s lace, Dusty Miller foliage – such a romantic mix!

Kristi liked the idea of using different flowers for each of her 4 brides maids: we incorporated roses in peach, cream, dusty rose, and white lisianthus.

These photos of the ring bearers and the flower girl are just too adorable!

To the pews at the Villa Academy chapel we attached clusters of hydrangea, garden roses, andastilbe – and connected the pews with long panels of cream silk organza. The altar was simply decorated with tall silver candelabras.

For the reception at the beautiful Dome Room at the Arctic Club Hotel each of the 16 guest tables was decorated slightly differently: each in the style of ‘simple elegance’, they featured various vintage vessels, candle holders, silver mint julep cups, and glass vases of different height and shape and each filled with different floral elements. Here we used pinkastilbe in a silver julep cup.

The blend of different old-world flowers and vintage vessels combined with lots of candles made this a very romantic design.

The beautiful 4-tiered cake was embellished with lots of roses, hydrangea, Queen Anne’s lace, andranunculus – stunning!
