W&K | Maplehurst Farm Wedding | June | Bellingham Wedding Planner

05_TheCouple_044

W&K are the kind of couple you just really want to be best friends with. They’re the most delightful mixture of kind, sassy, beautiful, and rad, which made our meetings feel more like wedding planning-themed hangouts. On top of that, every single element of their wedding day was so thoughtfully curated and true to what makes them unique together, including: multiple personalized signs, 100+ hand-folded paper cranes, mementos from their incredible trip to Japan, and a ceremony procedure I’d never seen before that consisted of them tasting 5 different elements together (traditionally 4 – sour, bitter, hot, sweet – but W&K added their own element of umami, mostly because they freaking love oysters).

Color Scheme: navy blue, orange, sage green, gold accent
Favorite Décor Elements: the zany tea party theme, custom signage, and GOLD GLITTER EVERYWHERE.
Favorite Moment: at the end of their wedding day, when W grabbed both of my arms, looked me in the eyes, and said “You. Are. The. Shit.” Still recovering from my heart bursting with happiness.

Here’s to so many years of adventures + happiness, W&K!! Can’t wait to see where life takes you next.

K&J | July 2014 | Lairmont Manor | Bellingham Wedding Planner

Now that Koordination by Krisanna is based in Seattle, I only take on a select few Bellingham-area weddings per year and boy, am I glad Kayla & Jesse’s was one of them! K&J go together like a hot drink on a snowy day, x’s and o’s, thunder and lighting, adenine and thymine… you get the gist 😉 They are both thoughtful, appreciative, fun-loving, confident, caring, and, most of all, genuine. Genuinely grateful, genuinely happy, genuinely in love, and genuinely excited to marry each other.

There were so many uniquely K&J details incorporated throughout the day… mason jar mugs for guests engraved with lyrics from one of Kayla’s favorite songs: “where you invest your love, you invest your life”, a good friend singing/playing guitar for the processional and for K&J’s first dance together, light gray maxi dresses for K’s ladies / dark jeans + charcoal gray vests for J’s boys, and an ice cream truck. Yep, you read that right – Kayla had ensured that a local ice cream truck would be onsite just in time for guests to get sugared up for dancing… too. awesome.

K&J decided to go the traditional route and did not see each other before their ceremony, which made the moment that Kayla walked down the aisle even more touching (you’ll see when you get to the photo of J seeing his bride for the first time!). Their celebration was one of the happiest I’ve had the honor of being a part of thus far and I am so grateful they trusted me to take care of them even though they were planning all the way from Tennessee! Here’s to Mr. & Mrs. Young!!

Since you’ve made it all the way to the end of this beautiful couple’s blog post, I have one more story: it’s becoming more and more well-known that I’m a bit of a sucker for the Cupid Shuffle (never heard of it? www.youtube.com/watch?v=h24_zoqu4_Q …you’re welcome!). K&J had originally had it on their “do not play list” but when DJ Birdman played it especially for me when almost everyone had left at the very end of the night, both of them and a few of their closest friends joined me in doing the steps and it was one of THE sweetest/most special 3 minutes of my life! Truly made my week – I love my couples!
