Chenying & Nick ~ August 6, 2016

Last August Chenying and Nick were married amongst the blooming lavender fields at Woodinville Lavender and celebrated with an intimate dinner catered by Twelve Baskets Catering. We simply adored working with Chenying and Nick planning each detail of their wedding day and were simply over the moon with the photos taken by Katie Parra Photography! One of our favorite memories of their day was watching their guests soak in the experience of the lavender farm as they toured the fields, sipped lavender infused lemonade, experienced hands on the lavender distilling process and left with lavender chocolates to remind them of one unforgettable celebration in the lavender fields. Happy Anniversary Chenying & Nick!

The wedding was perfect! Thanks so much for your hard work, it was so lovely. It was great working with you, and happy to give referrals in the future. ~ Chenying

Sally & Bob’s Reception ~ August 9, 2015

On August 8th Sally and Bob wed in front of an intimate group of family and close friends at their waterfront home but the grand celebration was saved for August 9, 2015 at Inglewood Golf Club. As friends and family gathered at the Golf Club it was obvious that Sally and Bob were blessed. Love, laughter and dancing kicked off the newlyweds happily ever after!

After meeting on Match.com Rob and Elizabeth’s whirlwind romance was sealed at Hotel 1000 on June 6, 2015. With grown children of their own it was extremely important to them that their kids play a role in their wedding day as the two families became one. Katie Parra Photography captured a wedding day full of romance and family.

Hi BreeAnn, just got home and now catching up on everything. My family had an awesome time and I have told several friends how valuable you were to us. Thank you for everything you did.  The wedding would not have been such a wonderful experience without you there coordinating everything. We thank you, Rob & Elizabeth

Chris’s 30th Birthday Party

Having recently moved to Seattle and in the midst of remodeling a newly purchased home (hence the hardhats), Kacey reached out to Pink Blossom Events to help throw her husband Chris one memorable party for family and friends. The afternoon of the party guests boarded the Yachta Yachta in South Lake Union for cocktails and appetizers on Lake Union making a perfect setting to show off their city to friends and family. After a spin on the lake guests headed up to Queen Anne where they dined on a gourmet meal by City Catering Company and sipped on cocktails mixed by their favorite downtown bar on the lawn of their new home. We must say, we wish our 30th Birthday could have mirrored this one!

BreeAnn – Thank you for helping me to throw Chris a wonderful 30th Birthday Party. It certainly wouldn’t have been as fabulous if you weren’t at the helm. Looking forward to working with you in the future! All the best, Kacey

Woodinville Lavender Farm Dinner

This morning we am reminded once again at the generosity of our community. This past July Pink Blossom Events helped design and execute a Farm Dinner at Woodinville Lavender benefiting Farms for Life catered by Kaspars Special Events & Catering and I am once again amazed at the power of our fellow neighbors. Thank you Katie Parra Photography for capturing all the beauty that day including the food, community and the stunning fields of lavender. Cheers to a successful fundraising event!

I have worked on a variety of events with BreeAnn and I am always impressed with her creativity and organization.  Her attention to detail brings together all the pieces by knowing every aspect of the event including production provided by other vendors.  By working with all those involved, she makes sure every element is presented perfectly creating a seamless event.   I am always in awe how she is able to make each event unique and truly expresses the client’s personality.  I truly enjoy working with BreeAnn and look forward to being inspired by each event.   Marie Louderback – Kaspars Special Events and Catering

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.
