L&J | Pacific Tower Wedding | October | Seattle Wedding Planner

LJ-Wedding225

L&J were referred to me by a major boss babe (shout out to Brynn of Dandy & Fine Parties!), but our connection was amplified by our shared love of dogs and, more specifically, volunteering. They built their vendor team in ways that would allow them to give back – using Farestart, a local non-profit, for catering, and delivering their beautiful floral arrangements to nursing homes/hospitals after their wedding day. Their focus on giving back also translated to their guests and every aspect of their day was built around ensuring that each and every person enjoyed each moment.

With the help of Brynn, L&J dreamed up a design for the Pacific Tower Panoramic Room that transformed it from a corporate meeting-ish aesthetic into a bright, modern celebration space with shiny art deco accents. Chairs were stylishly covered in silver pashminas, gold-framed boards displayed guests’ names on gold cut-outs with colorful tassels, clear ghost chairs lined the head table, and the stunning Smashing Petals floral designs were the star of the show on the crushed teal tablescapes. In a world full of (beautiful) pastel weddings, this wedding was a bold burst of flair and I loved every aspect of it.

Color Scheme: jewel tone hues – royal purple, cranberry, teal, navy
Favorite Décor Elements: globes with favorite quotes written on them scattered around the reception space, large signage taking over the foyer, BRIGHT pops of color in the flowers + tablescape decor to offset the overcast weather. And of course the built-in panoramic Seattle view decor element.
Favorite Moment: watching the blank slate room be completely transformed into a beautiful, colorfully sophisticated space, fit for L&J’s art deco/modern vision.

Cheers to Mr. & Mrs. Padley!

A&J | DeLille Cellars Chateau Wedding | July | Woodinville Wedding Planner

View More: http://bjones.pass.us/ja2016

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!!

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.
