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.

J&J | August Wedding at The Admiral’s House | Seattle Wedding Planner

jj072

 Elegant (adj.) – pleasingly graceful and stylish in appearance or manner.

People often ask if I work with couples who are planning from out-of-state and this is a perfect example: when they booked me, Jane was in Chicago at Law School and Jonathan was in New York, so most of our work was done via phone conferences. However, J&J’s incredibly kind demeanors, attention to detail, and eagerness to host a perfectly executed event made working with them from afar an absolute dream. Together, we made sure that their top 3 wedding wishes – excellent food & drinks, impeccable photography, and a smooth, enjoyable experience from start to finish – became a reality.

Although it’s been well over a year since their wedding day, J&J’s wedding is one I’ll likely never forget. The stunning Admiral’s House backdrop + all-star vendor team (see below for list), the carefully chosen little details (think lavender soap from Woodinville Lavender and fresh truffles from Intrigue), and, most importantly, the bride and groom’s attention to their guests’ experience, made for one of the most beautifully joyful events I’ve ever coordinated.

Forever grateful to my dear friend, Kelly (floral designer extraordinaire), for connecting me with this amazing couple!

L&S || May 2015 || Great Hall at Greenlake || Seattle Wedding Planner

View More: http://bettyelaine.pass.us/lesliestevevendorimages

I mean, I’m just going to start this out by saying that you KNOW you’re collaborating with an awesome couple when they let you know that they’re ending their ceremony with 2 confetti cannons (see below). But even before they told me about that, I adored L&S for so many other reasons – they are both so down to earth, genuine, and gracious + it was apparent from the moment I met them that they had the utmost respect for each other and all of their loved ones. The cherry on top? Our mutual love for all things sassy & sarcastic.

Leslie & Steve’s romantic, cocktail party theme was enhanced by their snazzy black and white-clad wedding party, lots and lots of white & blush flowers, gold accents intermixed throughout, and of course, the strung cafe lights + hundreds of candles. And guess what? The majority of this beautiful celebration was DIY! That word has become somewhat cringe-worthy for me when it comes to weddings, but L blew me away with all of her DIY design work – the signage, menus, place cards, table numbers, and even the gorgeous bouquets were ALL her doing! Overall, the best kind of wedding – gorgeously simple, classy & cozy – with the best kind of couple.

A big thank you to this sweet couple for allowing me to be a part of such lovely day! Here’s to Mr. & Mrs. Minalia!!

K&R | May 2014 | Fireseed | Whidbey Island Wedding Planner

IMG_8108

2014 has brought many changes for me – challenges, transitions, and exciting opportunities have been thrown my way but one thing has stayed consistent… I love my job and I love my couples!

That being said, I could not have asked for a more perfect wedding to kick off the 2014 Koordination by Krisanna wedding season. From the moment I first met Kristin, I felt as if she was a long-lost friend – so many laughs and so many things in common!  And Reid? Well, he is one entertaining, charismatic dude who clearly adores his lady (I mean, an end-of-the-night serenade for his new bride in front of all of their guests!? Only true love inspires that). Kristin & Reid are not only one of the most beautiful couples on the face of the earth, they’re also unimaginably fun & sweet.  Their wedding encompassed the essence of the philosophy behind KbyK – it was full of laughter, joy, and, most importantly, it was the ultimate celebration of love.

K & R had already chosen Fireseed as their venue (and caterers) before I met them and as soon as I saw the grounds, I completely understood why. Gorgeous gardens, pristine lawns, a wooden swing hanging from a willow tree, and a private boardwalk by the pond… not to mention, the newly renovated reception barn. What’s not to love!? Plus, owners Dave & Dawn provided a calming presence and consistently went out of their way to be there for anything the bride and groom may need.

I hope you enjoy the perfectly captured moments by the awesome & talented Michael of Stadler Studio as much as I did! Keep an eye out for all of the personalized details throughout the day – “Aviator’s Addiction” coffee for guests to take home, hand-written chalk signs (by a friend of the bride & groom), and monogrammed mustache napkins, to name a few.

 I am truly over the moon for these two lovebirds – Congratulations again to Lieutenant & Mrs. Reid Smith!!
