I was introduced to A by my sister (they trained in ballet in college together), so even before I met her for the first time, I had heard so much about how beautiful she was, inside and out. She is that girl who instantly makes you feel like you’ve been friends forever and the girl who gives you the most genuine, radiant smile + a hug the first time you meet (which is relevant because those of you who know me know that I am a self-titled “hugger”). And J is her rad counterpart — that guy who, upon finding out that I am a hugger, greeted me at their rehearsal with “I know you’re a hugger, so we’ll just start with a hug”. So basically, several lowkey heart-bursting-with-happiness moments working with these two.
A&J rocked a Thursday wedding – at the beautiful DeLille Cellars Chateau in Woodinville, WA – and from A’s fairytale princess dress (and shoes!!) to the live band serenading their guests on the dance floor, it was honestly pretty dang perfect. But more than that, their ability to tackle adversity together as a team, and the raw, real respect + adoration they have for each other is something I consider to be a whole different level of perfection — a glimpse into a marriage that will be just as beautiful as their wedding.
Color Scheme: bright jewel tones
Favorite Décor Elements: minimalistic DIY elements – created with love by A, the willingness to go BIG with bold blooms + textures, and J’s burgundy suit (yes, this counts as a decor element).
Favorite Moments: J losing it when he saw his bride walking down the aisle, watching A’s infectious laughter bring joy to each and every guest throughout the day, and the 4 hours of live music (I love my DJs, but there is something so magical about live music at a wedding).
Cheers + love to Mr. & Mrs. Byrd!!

I am a wedding planner + calligrapher, based in Seattle, serving internationally.
My biggest passion in life is helping other people and I whole-heartedly believe that the little things make the biggest impact. Animals + chocolate are my favorite forms of therapy. My favorite part of a wedding is the first dance and I cannot resist the Cupid Shuffle.
