Pretty sweet! I’m excited to be participating in Weddings on the Waterfront in July.  Not sure how it all came about, but I stumbled into an pretty amazing creative group of people! I have to say that the creative energy in this group of vendors is pretty impressive!  I’m working with Rebecca at Pravda Events www.pravdaevents.com   and I love her style, creative approach and her vision!  Carna Lapping, of Very Important Events was my initial contact, http://www.veryimportanteventsblog.com/  and it all just came about in a conversation regarding another mutual bride we are working with, and I should certainly thank Courtney for putting us in touch with each other.

I’ve been working on my floral vision for the event, I’ve started a board for the event at Pinterest.  Here is the link to the creative start to the project  http://pinterest.com/brittanyflowers/waterfront-event-ideas-for-nautical-and-modern/  I know it seems a little vague, but you know it’s a process that happens in my brain first..what else can I say :) I’m a typical designer!

The vision starts with the most beautiful venue   http://www.bellharbor.com/ on the waterfront in Seattle. The view doesn’t get any better than this spot! The photo gallery has some pretty amazing pictures, which you can check out here: http://www.bellharbor.com/gallery.php

Bell Harbor features 100,000 square feet of meeting and conference center space and they can accommodate up to 200 trade show booths. With their state-of-the-art technology, onsite planning team, award-winning cuisine,  Bell Harbor is an ideal space for 5 to 5,000 guests. In addition, Bell Harbor manages catering and events for World Trade Center Seattle and the Maritime Event Center.

The other thing I was very excited to learn it that my daughter photographer Alante Photography http://www.alantephotographyblog.com/ is one of the photography vendors for this WOW event. I haven’t had the pleasure of meeting the creative team at Alante yet, but I’m sure we will have a great time at the wedding at the Seattle Tennis Club!

Vintage Bottles

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I’ve been scouring the internet looking for cute vintage bottles for an upcoming event.  Everyone has been asking me for them.  Well, the good news is..Syndicate has finally brought them out!  I’m happy to find them, I ordered 4 cases of them today.  So all of you local brides looking for vintage bottles, call me for a price quote, I’ll be happy to rent them to you for your next event, and they will also be for sale in the store!  I am so happy to not have to go hunting in thrift and antique stores just to collect a few bottles here and there, it was so time consuming.  The new vases come in 12 different styles and range in size from 5 to 10 inches tall.  They come in 24 assorted t0 a case, but I’ll be happy to sell what ever bottle count you need.

I’ve been along for the ride, with my daughter & her fiance who are planning their October wedding.  I’m pretty knowledgeable about who is great at what they do in this industry of wedding events  and flowers.

I’m here to tell you, that now I realize that it’s not as easy as it looks.  There are so many great vendors out there, and the key to finding the one, was finding the one that fits with you and your style.  I can’t tell you how many fantastic photography sites I have spent night after night going through and studying.  My daughter kept asking for my opinion, but I couldn’t give her an answer.  It’s just such a personal thing.  After many months of searching they finally made the choice…

They previewed so many photographers and they loved all of them! What the deciding factor came down to was not price,  not the packages that they offered, or the extras, it came down to the person they felt who had made an emotional  connection with them and left them feeling confident that the  person would be willing to put out the extra effort to  capture the spirit of their big day and share with the world who they are as a couple!  It takes a ton of work to get to know someone, but how else can you make them shine on their big day?  I’m looking forward to seeing the artistic results and how they capture my daughter & her fiance’s personality!  Should be some great pictures coming…

Isn’t this the most perfect color palette for a wedding in October? This was the brides bouquet.

I recently had the pleasure of doing a wedding for Julie & Dan!  I am so amazed at how much of the joy was captured by Nathaniel!  He did an awesome job.

Founded in 1892, Seattle Yacht Club is one of our country’s most active and long-established yacht clubs. With facilities ranging from the historic main station on Portage Bay, to ten outstations located along the shores of Washington and British Columbia, the club offers an outstanding group of properties for use by its members. The history of the club is tied in with the history of pleasure boating and yacht racing in the Pacific Northwest.  I’m looking forward to this weekend, a lovely wedding in sunny yellow & fresh ivory & and green, just like the NW!

A charming peaceful country setting with sprawling farmland & the majestic Mt Rainier towering above the Cascade mountains.  True tranquility and a perfect setting for a lovely wedding.  A fun and festive cherry themed wedding is next on my calendar, I  can’t wait for the big day, and hope to post some fun pictures after the event.

This is going to be one fantastic venue, historical and beautiful.  A lush organic, bouquet with scabiosa pods, bay leaf, lavender, scabiosa, rosemary, berries, lizzie and freesia, are just the perfect look for this venue!  I’m so excited to capture the ambiance of this place in the flowers!
