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!!

M&M | Golden Gardens Wedding | July | Seattle Wedding Planner

AlexandraCeliaPhotography-MeganandMarshall-617

I’ve literally had this draft saved for weeks. Photos chosen and placed, vendors listed, the best memories relived. But this part? Sheesh, it is difficult to write a short blurb about two incredible people who I have so much love for.

Megan and I have known each other since high school — we were those best friends who had an enviable amount of inside jokes and spent the majority of our time writing notes to each other and laughing ’til we cried. Fast forward a few years, and I’m convincing M that she does, indeed, need a wedding planner and that I should somehow be lucky enough to have that honor. And what an absolute honor it was… M&M are intelligent beyond their years and consistently reminded me what a real relationship looks like. I got to watch them work as a team throughout our professional relationship as we planned their wedding together, and have gotten to see them work as a team through the most difficult of life’s realities as they perfect their marriage. It truly brings me so much joy knowing that one of my dearest friends found her match… I would go back and do their beach celebration 1,000 times if I could.

Color Scheme: ice blue, white, silver
Favorite Décor Elements: pops of vintage furniture/elements against the bathhouse brick walls, the 10-pane window seating chart, platters upon platters of cake pops.
Favorite Moments: the look on Megan’s face when she walked into the bathhouse for the reception reveal, the incorporation of live music via the ceremony violinist + the cocktail hour band, and the overall love + joy that emanated between M&M — whether they were in each other’s arms or all the way across the room. Oh and Tux. On a. Beach.

To one of the most #goals couples out there — I cannot wait to see everything you do together, M&M!
