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!!
