S&C | November 2013 | Seattle Aquarium | Seattle Wedding Planner

Stephanie & Chad were one of my 2013 couples who found me very early on and decided to take a chance on me. Stephanie had emailed me, wanting to know if I was available for her November wedding (off-season is my favorite so heck yes!) and then she told me that their wedding venue was at the Seattle Aquarium and it was a done deal. I mean, how awesome would it be to coordinate a wedding at the place where so much of my childhood was spent!? (For those of you who don’t know, I am a MAJOR animal lover so the Aquarium = pure awesomeness). And so began my adventure with this lovely couple!

Stephanie is a highly intelligent and thoughtful woman who knew exactly what she wanted for her wedding day. Chad was so sweet and supportive throughout the whole process – one of the more involved grooms I’ve worked with! Together, they make a perfect team and I feel so honored that I was able to take part in the beginning of their forever.

I knew that their wedding would be spectacular but I was honestly not prepared for how out-of-this-world it turned out to be when it all came together. Every detail had so much thought put into it – from the hand-made escort cards that Stephanie crafted (color-coded to show what dinner choice each guest had chosen!), to the intimate candles that lined the front of the giant fish tank to the radiant orchid & turquoise uplighting. Not to mention the amazing set of vendors that Stephanie & Chad put together!!

Huge shout-out to the lovely Nicole of Nicole Goddard Photography for being so much fun and, of course, for allowing me to show off her fantastic photos of the day!

I couldn’t have asked for a better way to finish off the 2013 wedding season! Congratulations again to the wonderful Mr. & Mrs. Johnston!!
