Elissa and Upshur – Stunning Chihuly Glasshouse Wedding

Flora Nova Design Seattle Wedding ceremony arch

I am so very excited to finally blog about this beautiful and amazing wedding of Elissa and Upshur! When you look at the stunning images by Barbie Hull Photography you’ll understand why. This wedding will be remembered here as one with the sweetest couple, the most impeccable style, at one of the most beautiful venues in town, and with an A list vendor team led by the ever so amazing team of Sprinkled In Seattle. As a designer what more can you want from a dream job!

In the many planning meetings with Elissa and her mom Donna it soon became clear that this spring wedding at the Chihuly Garden and Glass would be simply stunning. I loved Elissa’s style: modern elegance of clean lines paired with organic floral and greens. The designs with an abundance of local tulips and poppies were a perfect fit for the Chihuly Glasshouse and complimented the ceiling art beautifully.

One of my favorite elements of this wedding was the custom designed clear lucite arch: it created an affect that made the flowers on top appear to float … So dreamy! But now, enjoy all the details …

Stunning Wedding at the Stunning Chihuly Garden and Glass

When I heard that Elizabeth and Alec’s wedding would be taking place at the gorgeous Glasshouse at the Chihuly Garden and Glass Museum I knew that everybody involved – and especially the guests – would be in for a treat. Chihuly’s centerpiece in the famous Glasshouse where the couple’s wedding ceremony and reception took place will take your breath away.

To design an event around the stunning colorful artwork can go a few different directions, and the couple opted for a very clean and modern look in all white and lucite to not take away from the beautiful glass design in the ceiling. I absolutely loved their vision and bringing it to life for their wedding day last July was certainly a treat for us! We paired white satin linens with white floral featuring lots of calla lilies (Elizabeth’s favorite) and chose clear ghost chairs (from Pedersen’s Event Rentals), lucite stands, and clean shaped glass vases to create the modern look they wanted to achieve. Just stunning!

The gorgeous images by the talented Ken Shepard of Azzura Photography perfectly reflect the happiness and beauty of the day.
