Lauren & Jake’s Rooftop Wedding

Lauren and Jake’s June wedding at the fabulously chic Olympic Rooftop Pavillion was a perfect mix of clean modern lines and lush garden florals. Clear lucite ghost chairs, a lucite arch, and lots of stemmed glass hurricanes sparkled in the sunshine and gave the event an air of sophistication that complimented this trendy industrial-chic rooftop venue.  For the ceremony, smilax vines flowed down the aisle and cascaded down the lucite arch, which was topped with asymmetrical floral in cream, blush, and pink.

At dinner, the modern-meets-garden theme continued with more clear lucite touches in the custom table numbers, welcome sign, and cake stand.  A romantic mix of compote arrangements and bud vases in silver mercury and blown venetian glass lined the long tables.  The outdoor fireplace mantle topped with lush floral became a focal point as the guests gathered to take in the view and soak up the sun.  The lovely Lisa Chambers of Chambers & Company deftly coordinated this rooftop idyll, and the whole thing was beautifully captured by the team at Alante.  Enjoy!

Christine and Mark – A Unique Wedding at the Seattle Aquarium

Happy First Anniversary, Christine and Mark!! A little over a year ago this super-awesome couple celebrated their beautiful and unique wedding at the Seattle Aquarium. Christine was the dream bride and a dream client – I surely miss our meetings together in which we planned, laughed, created, and came up with so many lovely details. We incorporated elements like succulents and fern curls to create an event that feels very northwest but with unexpected touches of luxurious orchids.  The chartreuse and purple floral color palate with lots of gold accents was so sharp and so fun!

We custom built her wedding arch and adorned it with silk, lots of greenery, and purple flowers. And we were in love with the long guest tables decorated with elevated and low centerpieces and tons of candles! And how unique is that ice curtain as divider between lounge and dinner reception?! And those little succulents for guest favors?!

Christine didn’t shy away from texture, unusual floral elements, and unique flowers. We incorporated a huge succulent into her bouquet, and she used large orchids in her hair. Just wow!!

This awesome wedding was flawlessly planned and coordinated by Merry Beth of Aisle of View and photographed by Kim and Loren of Alante Photography. Party Rentals by Cort and BBJ Linen, ice features by Creative Ice!

 

Classic White Wedding at the Four Seasons Hotel Seattle

Flora Nova Design Seattle Centerpiece

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!

A “Sparkly” Wedding at Sodo Park Seattle

Lindsay and Alex are a wonderful couple inside and out!! Their wedding at Herban Feast’s Sodo Park last summer was a perfect reflection of their fun personality and sophisticated style. Planned and coordinated by the ever so fabulous Megan Keller from A Kurant Event, the couple wanted to create a feel “like the inside of a champagne bottle”! How fun is that??!! The result was a room filled with sparkly linens, sparkly candle light, and of course lots of sparkly champagne glasses!

Every meeting with Lindsay and Alex was filled with laughter and wonderful ideas and if you look at the images of their wedding below you can see this happiness and cheerfulness at every moment of their wonderful day. Thank you Shane Macomber for the beautiful images!!

Welcome to our new blog – I hope you like the new layout and design!

In this first blog entry we want to feature a very special wedding from last November: the grand wedding of Carrie and Jeff at the Fairmont Olympic Hotel in Seattle, coordinated by the fabulous Katy from Vows Weddings, and so beautifully photographed by Tania from Azzura Photography.

So many beautiful details made this a day to remember: the stunning bride and her handsome groom, the grand Spanish Ballroom with its crystal chandeliers, sequin linens, specialty chairs, dramatic lighting (by Greenlight Event Design), special table top items, luxurious centerpieces, gold sugar rimmed champagne glasses, and so much more. Simply a memorable affair with a luxurious feel!

Carrie was the sweetest bride to work with. From the day we got together for our first meeting till the last planning session, she was always at ease, gentle, and just a pleasure to work with. And on her wedding day she was even happier than ever – when she and Jeff came to see the beautifully decorated ballroom before all the guests arrived she was all smiles and so excited. It was clear her vision for the day was realized!

Luxury Wedding at the Four Seasons Hotel Seattle

I can’t believe it’s been so long since I blogged the last time! But I guess it has been wedding season and we have been very, very busy creating many beautiful summer weddings. Things are finally slowing down a bit and I can’t wait any longer to share the stunning wedding of Missy and David from last February.
When I just browsed their images by ever so talented Alante Photography I couldn’t help but to whisper a little “wow!” … What a luxurious wedding this was – all flawlessly coordinated and planned by the wonderful Lisa Chambers and Co! The colors and lighting (by GreenLight Event Design) in the ballroom of the Four Seasons Hotel were breathtaking!  So breathtaking, that when Missy stepped foot into the ballroom for the first time she cried out: “Wow, who needs David Tutera, if you can have Flora Nova!” Well, that sure made my day! 🙂

So, without much ado here are the many wonderful images  – enjoy!

A Wonderful Wedding at The Fairmont Olympic Hotel Seattle

Dani and Taylor’s summer wedding last July at the Fairmont Olympic Hotel will be remembered as one of our favorites – you will see why. A grand wedding ceremony arch, orchids galore, a wonderful color palette, beautiful details. An elegant affair Dani’s and Taylor’s wedding guests will cherish for a while!

We had the pleasure collaborating with the always fabulous Lisa Chambers of Chambers and Company  who impeccably planned and coordinated this beautiful wedding! Together with Lisa, Dani, and Dani’s mom we came up with a fabulous decor plan featuring soft lavender, cream, and silver accents throughout. The outcome was striking!

Wonderful Wedding at the Fairmont Olympic Hotel Seattle

Emily and Takao celebrated such a beautiful wedding last September at the Fairmont Olympic Hotel – so classy! The Fairmont with it’s wonderful traditional setting lends the perfect environment  for an elegant wedding day.
The couple’s color palette was white, cream, champagne, and gold with plum and navy blue accents. We incorporated the beautiful waterfall phaleanopsis orchids throughout which gave the overall decor such a luxurious touch.
Thank you so much The Popes Photographers for the stunning images of their special day!

For the ceremony in the Spanish Foyer e lined the aisle with elegant orchid designs and large hurricane candles in crystal vases.
We created a grand entrance of silk drapes at the lower entrance to the Spanish Foyer as a divider from the rest of the hotel and also as a beautiful greeting for the arriving guests.
For the reception tables we design luxurious tall and low centerpieces featuring cream, white and champagne floral.

A Fabulous Wedding at Newcastle Golf Club in Black and White

This was one of my favorite summer weddings of 2012 – Lee and David’s July wedding at the Golf Club at Newcastle.The ceremony and reception had such a luxurious feel – due to the many, many orchids, the crystal strands, and the fabulous rentals. With Lee’s and David’s impeccable style sense we transformed the tent into a dreamy event space in black and white – with small touches of red. So stylish! So glamorous! Their wedding day was flawlessly coordinated by Merry Beth Turpin of Aisle of View and beautifully captured by Azzura Photography. A stunning job by both!!

First some pictures of the ceremony: large mounds of white orchids, roses, calla lilies, and hydrangea were propped onto tall crystal vases and silver stands and were grouped together in the ceremony front and were lining the aisle.

The reception decor was in mainly black and white but we incorporated small touches of red: red water goblets, small red orchid blooms tucked into each napkin, tiny amounts of red mixed into the floral designs. Quite a sophisticated color mix:
The sweetheart table remained a gorgeous focal point during the reception – the draped back ground and the tall ceremony arrangements served as a perfect frame for the bride and groom:
Lee’s bouquet in all black and white featured lots of orchids, calla lilies, and garden roses. Crystal pins and black feathers gave it a touch of “glam”!
The bride’s maids’ bouquets in all red created a dramatic and unexpected contrast – playful yet so elegant!!

Molly & Preston: A Fabulous Summer Wedding!

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.
Don’t you just love those bright yellow umbrellas? What a fun way to accessorize!



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?
