G&J | Corson Building Wedding | April | Seattle Wedding Planner

Krisanna Elizabeth Events | Seattle Wedding Planner | The Corson Building | Photographer: GH Kim Photography

For as long as I can remember, I’ve dreamed of coordinating a wedding at the Corson Building – aka a beautiful, secret garden-esque, Italian building randomly plopped right in the heart of Seattle – so my heart skipped a beat when I received an inquiry for a wedding there (from one of the sweetest couples ever). And for something I had built up in my mind for so long, I was far from disappointed. In fact, it was better than I ever could’ve imagined – not only was it an incredibly aesthetic experience from start to finish, the staff at the Corson Building blew me away with the level of care they provided to G&J, myself, and every vendor / guest involved. 

G&J’s day took place on an overcast April day + was the epitome of the perfect intimate celebration: 29 guests, a shiba inu pup adorned with a floral crown, 4 courses of the most incredible food I’ve ever tasted, hundreds of stunning blooms, and gin + house-made rhubarb soda cocktails. Not to mention the kindest bride and groom + 1 kick-ass team.
This wedding was what dreams are made of.

Color Scheme: white, neutrals + pops of yellow
Favorite Décor Elements: the dark wood tables covered in free-flowing, lush, white centerpieces and real lemon accents.
Also, that exposed brick wall backdrop for their minimalistic 2-tier cake.
Favorite Moment: champagne toasts on the patio at sunset.

Cheers to G&J !!

E&A | AXIS Pioneer Square Wedding | August | Seattle Wedding Planner

LoraGradyPhotography-452

Let me just start by saying that this wedding was, quite simply, one of the most gorgeously designed weddings I have ever been a part of. Let me also just point out that it looks so. effortless. My friends… weddings that look effortlessly gorgeous are, in fact, full-blown, all hands on deck, 10/10 concentrated effort. But thanks to one of the most all-star teams out there (see below for full list), we transformed not one, but two, “blank slate” spaces – Occidental Square, the public Seattle parking lot, and AXIS’ concrete & brick space – to create a cohesive ethereal experience for E&A’s guests.

As logistically intense as this wedding was, working with E&A was quite the opposite – we shared so many laughs and our meetings were always smooth and simple. If there were planning hiccups, E&A stayed calm and trusted me to solve them. On their wedding day, it was all smiles & joy – as a planner, one of my favorite parts of my job is when I ask my couples to “hand over” any last-minute stress/anxiety and then watch as they visibly relax and focus on being in the moment with their favorite people. In short, collaborating with E&A was a dream and I’m so honored that I had the opportunity to be a part of their dream day.

Color Scheme: blush, white, neutrals & LOTS of greenery
Favorite Décor Elements: completely transforming Occidental Square (a public area!) from bustling city parking lot to ethereal ceremony space, E’s dress & tiara, the “Secret Garden”-esque backdrop behind/on the sweetheart table.
Favorite Moments: E&A walking into the reception area of AXIS to see the entire room flipped & transformed (one of their very few quiet moments, just the two of them), E’s mama walking her down the aisle, the French-inspired quartet, Rouge, serenading guests with live music during Cocktail Hour.

Big hugs & cheers to E&A!!
