Celebration of Life ~ Bravern Signature Residences, Bellevue

cocktail_and_bartender

As an event planner the greatest accomplishment is creating an event that truly speaks to your client and leaves a long lasting memory for both the guests and the host. When I received a call from Kathy she had recently lost her husband and was not sure she wanted a Celebration of Life but knew that this was something she needed to do for their family, friends and colleagues as they were asking for closure. With less than two months of lead time, a lot for a Celebration of Life, and knowing he was a sharp dresser, a seeker of fine shoes and nice ties and enjoyed a good scotch I set forth planning a Celebration of Life that would allow eighty five loved ones a chance to celebrate his life and enjoy a night of only the finest as that is what Steve would have wanted!

As the night came to an end one could not have found a better way to pay tribute. From the shoe shine station to ensure guests left with a better pair of shoes to bars featuring his private collection of single scotch malt whiskey served by an man in a kilt to a menu showcasing his favorite foods and not to mentioned a display of his prized shoes asking; Cinderfella if the shoe fits, wear it home. Not a detail was missed.

As the planner of this celebration I took pride in knowing that I had done my absolute best to honor a man that I had never met in person. When I first met with my client, there were no plans beyond a venue, a date and a desired caterer and she trusted me to become the guidance and vision she needed to pull off this event. Through planning with his wife and speaking with his treasured friends and family I couldn’t help but feel that I knew him in every sense and showcased a life that most only dream of fulfilling.

…I simply have no words!  …I will gush in a much more professional manner when I’ve had some sleep.  It was truly the nicest, loveliest, beautiful, and meaningful party I have ever been to.  The feedback from attendees and vendors was so positive.  You have done a superb job and Ravan represented you and your company to the highest degree.  ~ Kathy

Katie & Arin ~ Sodo Park Wedding, Seattle

bridal_portraits

Katie and Arin’s Sodo Park wedding told the story of one beautiful beginning! They day started with getting ready at the Fairmont Olympic and ended with an epic dance party featuring Bamboo Beats Video DJ experience which incorporated live music videos and movie clips on the dance floor.  Katie and Arin’s wedding featured a number of personal touches including their favorite date night activity, ping pong, as well as Katie’s love of making sure everything was beautiful which included the gorgeous floral by Floressence!  To ensure guests were a piece of their new beginning they invited guests to light their own individual candle while they made a wish or prayer for the couple before being seated for the ceremony. These two were so in love and we were honored to be their wedding planner and designer, as we were able to witness the beginning of a love story for the ages!

BreeAnn , words can hardly express how thankful we are for you. You have been so wonderful, gracious and patient through this journey with us. The best choice we made (apart from picking each other) was picking you! We have loved working with you and will move on from this day with a little sadness knowing that we won’t get to work with you any longer! You really were made for this job and will think of you in the future when we are in need of Seattle’s best planner! Thank you again for everything! XO Katie & Arin

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

Rich & Reena’s Birthday Party!

We love a glamorous birthday party and this birthday party we planned for Rich and Reena last spring hits the mark! Reena reached out to us two weeks before the date and requested a nice brunch birthday party for her and her husband who would be celebrating birthdays just days apart! With brunch on the menu we set out to make it a celebration to remember! From a bubbly bar to a lavish brunch display and the most gorgeous peony arrangements Rich and Reena’s birthday party was a dream!

Danielle & Aaron ~ April 24, 2016

Once in a while life has a beautiful way of bringing people together. Growing up Danielle and I were next door neighbors (yes, I made sure she got to school on time as I was her driver once I got my license!) and it was simply an honor to plan her and Aaron’s The Hollywood Schoolhouse wedding last April!

As far as how Danielle and Aaron met, it took a little nudging from Danielle’s aunt, but one evening, Aaron and Danielle met at a local wine bar where Aaron was listening to his friends’ band The Side Project and Danielle was celebrating landing her first nursing job with her aunt. Fast forward a few years later as that same band, The Side Project, was playing as Danielle and Aaron walked down the aisle. Photos of one unforgettable wedding day by Kristen Honeycutt Photographer! Congratulations Danielle & Aaron!

Just wanted to take a moment since the dust has settled to express how thankful we are for the amazing job you did with our wedding…Thank you for being present and approachable during the planning process. Your positivity and hard work have been so appreciated during the process!… Thank you for all the hard work and attention to detail you put into the day. It was so important that the day felt like us, and you did not disappoint. We had so many of our guests telling us it was the best wedding they had ever been to and that they day felt like us- I am so grateful to you for helping us achieve that. Thank you so much for everything!! ~ Danielle & Aaron
