Industrial Rooftop Wedding | WithinSodo – Seattle | A&J

How often can you say that you were best friends with the GROOM for almost a decade before having the honor of planning his wedding!? J and I basically grew up together, (bagging groceries at our local grocery store throughout high school and bonding over a love for Disneyland / him giving me pep talks through the drama of that period of life), so when he told me he found A, I was over the moon and knew him well enough to know right away that she was THE One.

I worked alongside this power couple for a year, planning + designing their Seattle wedding at Within Sodo. Our meetings typically took place at their home – where they would often surprise me with delicious home-cooked meals – but if a meeting took place elsewhere, the adventure would always involve detours to cute little places (shoutout to Rachel’s Ginger Beer!) before actually getting to our work destination. Not only are A+J thoughtful and two of the hardest working people I know, they are sassy, witty, and – most of all – FUN, which made our year together FLY by.

Every aspect of this wedding was curated to include A+J’s favorite things, but more importantly, every aspect we planned and designed was guest-centric. Their love for good food + wanting to create an inviting, family-style dinner atmosphere led us to Skillet for dinner and rainbow cake from Cakes of Paradise for dessert. Their love for good times with friends led us to beer pong on the rooftop (with listed House Rules, of course). There was no lack of laughter and every guest was clearly thrilled to be a part of the celebration. It was such a special wedding for me to be a part of – as a planner AND friend – and one I will never forget.

Can we do it all again, Mr. + Mrs. Numata!? So much love for you!!


Color Scheme: whites, neutrals, navy, greenery – rustic city vibes.
Favorite Décor Elements: the vineyard chair / white farm bench combination for the ceremony, creating an intentional, yet cozy seating situation in a small space.
+ Beer pong with rooftop views for guests to enjoy during cocktail hour and dancing.
+ Continuing on the Disney / FUN notes above, A+J incorporated Disney (specifically, The Lion King) into essentially all of their DIY signage and paper goods AND came up with a witty play on words for their wedding hashtag – #hakunaphamata – combining their two last names in place of “matata”.
Favorite Moment: A surprised J with a Chipotle burrito groom’s cake and J invited all of his groomsmen up to cut / take first bites with him.

G&J | Corson Building Wedding | April | Seattle Wedding Planner

Krisanna Elizabeth Events | Seattle Wedding Planner | The Corson Building | Photographer: GH Kim Photography

For as long as I can remember, I’ve dreamed of coordinating a wedding at the Corson Building – aka a beautiful, secret garden-esque, Italian building randomly plopped right in the heart of Seattle – so my heart skipped a beat when I received an inquiry for a wedding there (from one of the sweetest couples ever). And for something I had built up in my mind for so long, I was far from disappointed. In fact, it was better than I ever could’ve imagined – not only was it an incredibly aesthetic experience from start to finish, the staff at the Corson Building blew me away with the level of care they provided to G&J, myself, and every vendor / guest involved. 

G&J’s day took place on an overcast April day + was the epitome of the perfect intimate celebration: 29 guests, a shiba inu pup adorned with a floral crown, 4 courses of the most incredible food I’ve ever tasted, hundreds of stunning blooms, and gin + house-made rhubarb soda cocktails. Not to mention the kindest bride and groom + 1 kick-ass team.
This wedding was what dreams are made of.

Color Scheme: white, neutrals + pops of yellow
Favorite Décor Elements: the dark wood tables covered in free-flowing, lush, white centerpieces and real lemon accents.
Also, that exposed brick wall backdrop for their minimalistic 2-tier cake.
Favorite Moment: champagne toasts on the patio at sunset.

Cheers to G&J !!

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!

S&C | DeLille Cellars Chateau Wedding | September | Seattle Wedding Planner

CHARLIE+SARAH-0488

Okay, so first of all, let’s just get it right out in the open that S&C are essentially models and I’m the first to admit that I may have overdone it with their portrait shots because literally every. single. one. is. stunning. Also, let’s just acknowledge/have a moment of silent awe re: S’ dress. Great, moving on.

The best part about working with this couple was their love for each other – S&C always came to meetings together and always carefully made every decision together. The way they looked at each other was really really real and every single person at their wedding was literally bursting with happiness that these two were tying the knot. Their connection was palpable and they are genuine life partners through and through.

On top of working with such a “head over heels” couple (my fav type), they had a seriously unreal aesthetic vision. They opted to say their vows in the DeLille Cellars forest, standing on a bed of rose petals, with candles lining the log behind them. They ate + toasted at gray-clothed, family-style tables, adorned with leafy garlands filled with pink and white flowers, under a tent strung with sparkly lights. And don’t even get me started on their desserts… a small, 1-tier cutting cake, surrounded by dozens of Italian-themed desserts + eucalyptus. They truly brought Italy to Washington and it was such an honor to be a part of it all.

Color Scheme: gray, ivory, blush, green
Favorite Décor Elements: the Italian-esque aesthetic – from the vineyard chairs, to the Italian-style menu, to the cannolis in the dessert spread – all set on the beautiful DeLille Chateau grounds, the circular blanket of white rose petals covering the woodland grounds where S&C said “I do”, S’ beaded rose gold shawl, and the incredible garland centerpieces, carefully constructed by Chandin of Studio 3 Floral Design.
Favorite Moment: S had the biggest (prettiest) smile on her face the entire day, but it was especially radiant when I sent her down the gravel path to meet her groom.

Cheers to Mr. & Mrs. Moran ♥

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!!
