E&A | August 2016 | AXIS Pioneer Square | 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!!

J&J || August 2015 || The Admiral’s House || Seattle Wedding Planner

 Elegant (adj.) – pleasingly graceful and stylish in appearance or manner.

People often ask if I work with couples who are planning from out-of-state and this is a perfect example: when they booked me, Jane was in Chicago at Law School and Jonathan was in New York, so most of our work was done via phone conferences. However, J&J’s incredibly kind demeanors, attention to detail, and eagerness to host a perfectly executed event made working with them from afar an absolute dream. Together, we made sure that their top 3 wedding wishes – excellent food & drinks, impeccable photography, and a smooth, enjoyable experience from start to finish – became a reality.

Although it’s been well over a year since their wedding day, J&J’s wedding is one I’ll likely never forget. The stunning Admiral’s House backdrop + all-star vendor team (see below for list), the carefully chosen little details (think lavender soap from Woodinville Lavender and fresh truffles from Intrigue), and, most importantly, the bride and groom’s attention to their guests’ experience, made for one of the most beautifully joyful events I’ve ever coordinated.

Forever grateful to my dear friend, Kelly (floral designer extraordinaire), for connecting me with this amazing couple!
