Kara & Nicholas ~ Rose Garden & Edgewater Wedding

bridal-portraits

Kara & Nicholas’ wedding day began at The Edgewater where they shared their first look then headed off to Woodland Park Zoo to visit the penguins and take a ride on the carousel before saying their I Do’s in the Rose Garden! The Rose Garden was in full bloom as guests arrived that afternoon. As the ceremony got underway the couple’s nieces and nephews processed down the aisle, handing both the couples mothers and grandmother each a mini bouquet. During the ceremony Kara and Nicholas wrote love letters to each other to read at a future date along with ‘adventure’ notes which described adventures that they want to experience together. After the ceremony loved ones wandered the rose gardens and had the opportunity to get up close to a Northern Saw-whet Owl.  Post ceremony Kara surprised Nicholas with a Rolls Royce as they led the way to The Edgewater for their reception. A Wishing Tree, handmade by the bride, featured tree ‘bark’ crafted from book pages that grew out of a stack of books.  The reception featured a few quirky German traditions as well as custom artwork and signage to carry through the woodland creature theme. Our favorite piece included the Escort chalkboard that was displayed on a tall log cross-section correlating to the guest tables named after the couple’s favorite literary novels. Wildflower centerpieces were paired with book-related decor, stump rounds, fresh moss and votives. Plantable paper foxes that would soon sprout wildflowers were give as favors.  Dancing, board games and s’mores under the stars caped off one fantastic wedding day!

Michael & Kevin ~ Alderbrook Resort Wedding

sunset-portraits-bride-and-groom

It was a fairy-tale wedding as Kevin and Michael were married at Alderbrook Resort & Spa one gorgeous spring afternoon! With life pulling them in all directions and living out of state, Kevin and Micheal reached out to us to plan and design their dream wedding day which took place not too far from Kevin’s family home on the Hood Canal. Incorporating a romantic Pacific Northwest vibe filled with lush floral, the sounds of string music and their love of tea the details were endless! One of our favorite moments of the day was the rowboat send-off which mimicked Michael’s first trip out to Alderbrook Resort when Kevin rowed her down the Hood Canal to Alderbrook for lunch before heading back to his family home. What love! Follow along as the images from Alante Photography tell the story of one romantic wedding day all ending with sunset photos at Alderbrook Golf & Yacht Club – a bonus when your wedding celebration ends in the late afternoon! white-wedding-boutineers white-wedding-boutineers wedding-invitations-and-rings-on-a-bed-of-flowers first-look close-up-of-bride-holding-white-pink-and-yellow-bouquet   bride-and-groom-walking-on-dock-at-alderbrook   bride-and-groom-on-dock-at-alderbrook   bride-and-groom-on-dock-at-alderbrook   bride-holidng-yellow-flowers   bridal-party-on-dock-at-alderbrook bride-and-bridesmaids-holding-yellow-flowers guest-book-signage wedding-ceremony-setup-at-alderbrook bride-grips-fathers-arm groom-watching-bride-walk-down-the-aisle wedding-ceremony-at-alderbrook   yellow-and-pink-flowers-on-tables wedding-toasts-and-speeches wedding-toasts-and-speeches wedding-toasts-and-speeches   wedding-cake-and-dessert   cake-cutting   first-dance   wedding-dances wedding-getaway-boat bride-and-groom-walk-down-dock-to-boat bride-and-groom-kissing-in-wedding-getaway-boat sunset-portraits-bride-and-groom sunset-portraits-bride-and-groom sunset-portraits-bride-and-groom sunset-portraits-bride-and-groom

BreeAnn, words cannot express the gratitude we have for all you have done. You simplified the wedding planning for Michael and Kevin during an overwhelming time of their lives and they are beaming with joy over how wonderful all the various events have unfolded. You also made the “mother-of-the-bride” duties non-existent for me. For that I will be forever grateful! Sincerely, Tamara
