Kilby & Joel ~ September 6, 2015

Each wedding we plan we realize what a small world it really is and Kilby and Joel’s story is no different. As Kilby explains, “It’s a small Jewish world after all.” Their Love Story, as described by Kilby, reads no different…

“As a second year Pediatrics resident in Chicago, I realized that the life of a general pediatrician wasn’t for me.  After spending a month working in a pediatric rehabilitation unit, I sent out applications and accepted a position for three more years of training in Rehabilitation Medicine at the University of Washington in Seattle.  After a three day road trip with Buttercup (Kilby’s dog) across I-90 (Butter loved getting her own bed each night at the hotel), I settled into my new townhouse in Seattle.

My aunt in Memphis happened to know Joel as she lived next door to Joel’s sister and had met him at one of the holidays he spent in Memphis with his family.  She provided him with my number so that we could connect and Joel could help me settle into the city he had been calling home for 5 years.  Shortly after moving in, and as a welcome break from studying for my Pediatrics boards, I got a call from Joel.  We chatted for a while and made plans to have dinner in a week.  From that first dinner we gradually started spending more and more time together to the point where it seemed like we should try dating or make an effort to spend less time together.

From our first date learning to make pasta, to fun hikes around Seattle, inducting Joel into dog ownership, and moving in together it’s been a great adventure leading to this next step.”

Lucas Mobley Photography was on hand as Kilby and Joel married at celebrated at Woodland Park Zoo this past Labor Day Weekend. We were honored to be a part of their wedding weekend which included a Welcome Dinner at Daybreak Indian Cultural Center catered by Bitterroot Catering the night before and ended with a Post Wedding Brunch at the W Seattle!

Chara & Phech ~ June 27, 2015

Chara and Phech met in Boston of May 2005 while out on the town!  Phech was at the birthday party of his friend Alia while Chara was at the birthday party of her friend Meg.  Their parties were adjacent to one another, mingling occurred, and magic happened!  After ten years together supporting each other through the ups and downs of 2.5 PhD programs, medical school, residency, the academic job search, fellowship application process and living together in three different cities (Boston, Philly & St. Louis) they found themselves in Seattle the morning of June 27, 2015 committing themselves to one another as husband and wife. The brunch celebration was filled with live music, laughter, tears and memories to last a lifetime! Photos by Crozier Photography.

Steven & Jessica ~ September 2014

As kids head back to school this week and the official end to summer (aka Labor Day Weekend) has passed, we look forward to a full season of fall weddings ahead! One of our favorites from last year was Steven and Jessica’s fall inspired Melrose Market Studios wedding. We were honored to plan their dream wedding complete with a dessert bar themed after their three dogs waffle, oreo and sprinkles! Photos by MKippen Photography.

Spectacularly flawless. After I proposed 13 months ago, I immediately started looking at wedding planners on Yelp. I contacted three. Of the two that got back to me, I was seriously impressed by how organized, professional, and prepared BreeAnn was at our initial meeting. My (now) wife and I had no idea what we wanted out of a wedding, just that it should be in September and that we had vague ideas involving our dogs. BreeAnn was reassuring, though, and put us at-ease immediately; we made a decision within a day and she got to work right away. If I recall correctly, she had started sending us venue recommendations before she’d even received our first payment!

I don’t think a single vendor she recommended was a miss. She had a different DJ in mind than those preferred by the venue we picked out – we’re glad we met with him, because he was easily the second best vendor we hired. In fact, the only time we went “off menu” was for the bride’s hair/makeup, and I think we regretted it.

BreeAnn was very responsive, kept detailed notes of every interaction we had (both with her and with venues), and was also very flexible in working with our schedules. To echo other reviews, we heard from multiple vendors that they love to work with her, and I can understand why. We never even met with the florist – she had recommended one in Kirkland, which was a difficult trip for me. At that point I trusted her judgment enough to just let her handle it. Sure enough, the flowers were beautiful, delivery was handled without my involvement, just like everything else.

On wedding day this weekend she was a godsend, completely on top of everything so that we could just bask in a perfectly executed ceremony and reception. Sure, there were (very minor) hiccups, but she dealt with them immediately and I was not only able to enjoy my wedding, I even had the chance to eat a full dinner! When the dessert bar ran out of our macarons before we had a chance to have one, she even tracked one down for us. Many family and friends were praising her involvement today. I would highly recommend hiring BreeAnn for day-of coordination if you aren’t thinking of doing a full planning package, but really, I’d highly recommend that as well. We would not have been able to pull things off without her. ~ Steven

Snohomish Wedding Tour ~ June 1, 2014

Last June we participated in the Snohomish Wedding Tour at Jardin del Sol and it was by far one of our favorite inspirational setups to date! We still can’t get enough of the bee theme ranging from the “Get Your Buzz On” bar to the bees incorporated in both the floral and paper goods. We also had fun pulling together three different ideas for a kids table. This was a sweet event to design and Rick+Anna Photography captured it just perfectly!

Sara & Stephen ~ April 12, 2014

Sara and Stephen met the summer before their sophomore year at the University of Washington and right away became fast friends. After six years of dating and experiencing the highs and lows of life together they took the next step of moving in together and soon after were planning their wedding day.  After setting their wedding date and venue they soon became lost bringing their vision and ideas to life and that’s when Pink Blossom Events stepped in. Having chosen a book themed wedding to incorporate one of their favorite past times and wanting to incorporate Sara’s love of lavender and color we couldn’t wait to get started! Taking into consideration The Rainier Chapter House’s architecture and historic past (it happens to be a replica of George Washington’s Mount Vernon home) as well as the season we set forth on a soft color palette of spring pastels with a vintage yet romantic spin on the biblical theme. Some of our favorite touches that day include mini books fashioned as escort cards, letters as table numbers and a dessert bar filled with cookies made by Sara’s grandma and a gorgeous wedding cake made by the brides Sisters.
