D&C | Maplehurst Farm Wedding | August | Bellingham Wedding Planner

Romantic Maplehurst Farm Wedding in August | Seattle Wedding Planner

It’s hard to write a blog post when there really are no words.

From our very first meeting, I was minorly (okay, majorly) obsessed with D&C. One of the main philosophies / taglines behind the KE wedding planning experience is “there’s nothing quite like connecting + collaborating with two people who are head over heels in love“, and these two are the EPITOME of that. Not only did they love + respect each other on a head-over-heels level, I also witnessed them show love + respect to every. single. person. in their lives. Including me, even when I was a complete stranger… which was short-lived because within minutes, it felt as if I had two new best friends.

To add to our immediate connection, it only made sense that before we even met, they had chosen to get married at one of my favorite wedding venues. Every single time I work at Maplehurst Farm, it is magical – some of my most cherished planning memories take place at this beautiful spot. Their celebration was very much added to that magical list, with their ceremony covered in beautiful blooms, dancing under the trees, the most romantic details, and joy. So much joy.

I’ll let the photos tell the rest of the story, but as I write this, I am reminded of how grateful I am to have a job where I get to work with people like D&C – who invite me into one of the most exciting periods of their lives and trust me to be there for them, professionally + as a confidante and friend.

All my love, Mr. & Mrs. House !!

Color Scheme: blush, ivory, white, gold
Favorite Décor Elements: the gorgeous dessert spread, larger than life bridal bouquet + giant ceremony arch with fresh blooms.
Favorite Moment: sending D down the aisle + first dances under the trees.

J&C | Guemes Island Resort Wedding | July | San Juans Wedding Planner

424_benblood_4250

Oh my goodness. This wedding. Well, more specifically, this couple. I just took a quick walk down memory lane as I went through all of the emails that J and I sent each other during our 5-month planning adventure and it’s making me feel all warm and fuzzy in my heart. J&C booked me from afar (California) and our very first phone call felt like catching up with an old friend. Shortly after we made our collab official, J started her emails to me with “hey, babe” and I would respond with “hi, love”. All of our interactions were so casual and split between talking about life outside of wedding planning + me being my Type A self while J calmly stayed true to her Type B counterpart. We balanced each other out well and planned one heck of a beautiful, logistics-heavy, lowkey wedding.

Color Scheme: navy blue, neutrals, pops of orange
Favorite Décor Elements: driftwood ceremony arch with gorgeous blooms, neutral-colored glassybabys on the guest tables (that doubled as guest favors), pebbles + shells hand-gathered from the Guemes Island beach.
Favorite Moment: J’s spontaneous decision to jump in as the official cake cutter. Guests lined up and got to spend a few minutes talking to her while she cut them their choice of Deru cake. It was perfect.

PS, do not think I’ve forgotten about C! I didn’t get to meet him until they were finally in Washington for their wedding weekend, but he greeted me for the first time with the warmest smile + hug and I remember immediately thinking “Yep. These two were made for each other.”

Cheers, J&C. I wish we could go back and do it all over again.

A&K | October 2014 | Guemes Island Resort | Guemes Island Wedding Planner

"Folk & Lore | Wedding Photography"

On the night I first met Anna, Seattle’s traffic was at its finest and I was a half hour late. By the time I got to our meeting location, I was on the verge of a panic attack and figured there was no way this lovely person was going to hire me. Fast-forward to the end of our chat, when A calmly said “I don’t see why we wouldn’t hire you!”, which 10000% made my day and the rest is history!

This wedding was a TRUE labor of love for everyone involved and definitely my biggest challenge yet. Long story short, a couple months before the wedding, we were notified that the vehicle ferry that normally runs to and from tiny Guemes Island (aka the only way of getting to and from the island) was going to be out of commission the weekend of their wedding, leaving only the small passenger ferry that could not carry any type of vehicle. With 3 rental companies, a full-service caterer, a live band, and the rest of the vendor team coming over for A&K’s wedding, it could have been a complete and utter nightmare. Lucky for us, we were working with an INCREDIBLE all-star team of wedding professionals, who did everything within their power to make the process as stress-free as possible and the day of the wedding came together without a hitch (special thanks to Captain Dan, who let us use his barge to get everything there and back!).

I couldn’t be happier for this sweet couple and am so honored that I got to play a part in such a genuine, joyful celebration.
