Blending Families at The Woodmark Hotel

After being introduced by mutual friends, Michele and Mark knew it was a perfect fit! Each with three kids of their own, a wedding during winter break was a must to ensure everyone was home together. And so on December 28, 2019, at The Woodmark Hotel & Spa, Michele and Mark were married with their children by their sides. Classic winter white and greenery made for one elegant evening on the shores of Lake Washington.

As friends and family arrived that winter day, Mark’s son Noah played the guitar. Their pastor and good friend, Chris Griggs, officiated the wedding that blended two families into one.

After the ceremony Mark and Michele joined loved ones in the library for cocktail hour before entering the tent that had been transformed from the ceremony to a romantic winter reception. Lush greenery, winter floral arrangements and plenty of candlelight set the mood.

After toasts filled with laughter and tears, Mark and Michele invited their guests into the ballroom for dancing and dessert! Mark and the groomsmen even surprised Michele with a surprise serenade.

As the dance floor came to an end and the last dance was had, Michele and Mark retreated to their room at The Woodmark while friends and family took home a sweet treat made by a good friend. In addition the next morning the leftover floral would be donated to Madison House and local hospice care.

Congratulations Michele & Mark!

Classic Summer Wedding at the Seattle Tennis Club Wedding

As Caroline and Ted married on the shores of Lake Washington last summer, they couldn’t help but get antsy about the celebration ahead as they just wanted to dance, dance, dance! A palette of classic white with touches of light blue and greenery set the tone for one unforgettable wedding day!

With Caroline and her bridesmaids getting ready at the Alexis Hotel, Ted and his groomsmen got ready at a VRBO before all meeting at the Arboretum for their first look. Caroline dress featured a lace top and a fit and air crepe skirt as she carrying a bouquet classic white floral with touches of light blue and greenery. Ted wore a blue tux finished off with a bow tie.

During the ceremony, officiated by Caroline & Ted’s good friend, loved ones offered 7 blessings, paying nod to Ted’s Jewish background.

  1. Love: May you have love. May your admiration, appreciation and understanding of each other foster a love that is passionate, tranquil and real. May this love between you be strong and enduring, and bring peace into your lives.

Mazel Tov! With the breaking of the glass, cocktail hour began! Street Tacos and hand rolled sushi were a hit as the string quartet continued to play.

With salads pre-plated and the Michael Benson Band beginning, loved ones made their way up into the ballroom for the reception. Lush blue draping adorned the entryway to Seattle Tennis Club and once inside the ballroom had been filled with long family style tables covered in candlelight and greenery runners mixed in with light blue and white blooms. Overhead the chandeliers had been transformed by removing the light shades and covering in lush greenery.

Post dinner toasts rolled into first dances and then the Michael Benson Band played back to back dance hits as guests filled the dance floor! Made to order ice cream cookie sandwiches made for the perfect treat to cool down in between dancing and a lively Hora!

BreeAnn is amazing! She remains unphased no matter what happens during wedding planning/day of and has a solution-oriented mindset. During the planning process she helped shape our scattered ideas into a concept that we loved and introduced us to vendors that would help fulfill that vision. While she is great during planning, the day of is where she really shines. No matter what went wrong, she found solutions and didn’t let either of us (the bride and groom) know that there was an issue. It really helped us focus on enjoying the day and soaking in all the love without worrying about details. She had a direct impact on how happy we are with our wedding day and we are so thankful for all her hard work and dedication to making our day so special!

Elegant Columbia Tower Club Seattle Wedding

Brigitte & Scott’s Columbia Tower Club wedding last September was full of elegance and tradition all ending with one epic dance party! Classic white with pops of pale pink, gray and navy set the color palette.

Truly, thank you so much for everything – the wedding was perfect and memorable, and we were so grateful for everything you did to make it such a special day that ran so well. We are so grateful for your organization, creativity and planning, and how smoothly you made the wedding run. I know we probably weren’t the easiest group to work with, and we were so appreciative of how patient and calm you were. Thanks so much for everything! ~ Brigitte

WIPA Seattle February 2020| Four Seasons Hotel Seattle

Wow, what an event! Working with a creative team of vendors, we brought to life an ‘Awakening of Spring’ this February at the Four Seasons Hotel Seattle. As guests arrived for cocktail hour they were surrounded by winter installations of seasonal blooms as they noshed on a Seattle Seafood Market Action Station and a Beecher’s Cheese Station and took turns in the Vanity Booth from Lionize Photo Booth. The signature ‘Walk in the Woods’ drink was a favorite!

With dinner chimes ringing the ballroom doors opened to a room that was beginning to awaken from winter and enter into spring with spring blooms and soft lilac lighting. Tables draped in Ash Swell linens from BBJ Linen and place settings from CORT Party Rental were adorned with tall trees hand-crafted by Delinger & Radovich using silver birch trunks and branches and magnolia blooms as well as another selection of tables topped with low centerpieces featuring a collection of locally grown foliage and flowers.

A three-course dinner was highlighted by entrée choices of Toppenish WA Beef Tenderloin, Local Rock Fish or a Lentil and Cauliflower Risotto.

As our Keynote Speaker took the stage the foyer was being transformed behind the scenes. Soon bright lighting by Crimson Haze greeted guests as they were welcomed back into the foyer which had been transformed into a spring dessert reception. Trees were now blooming and covered in bright blooms to reflect the season. As a parting favor, bottles of Gruet awaited.

Thank you to the Four Seasons Hotel Seattle for hosting our WIPA Seattle Meeting and to the culinary team at Four Seasons Hotel Seattle who blew us away with their exceptional service and menu.

A highlight of the evening was at the end of dinner when our Chapter was sworn in as an official Chapter of WIPA! A huge thank you to our rock star board who worked so hard on this event as well as the formation of WIPA Seattle!

In closing we leave you with a few photos from our turn in the Lionize Vanity Booth! A must for all future events!

Newcastle Wedding Showcase

This fall we had the opportunity to design The Golf Club at Newcastle’s Murfield Room with a rock start team of vendors and what fun it was to see all the details come together. Pulling in inspiration from the dark wood tones of the room we chose a warm color palette of ivory, champagne, copper and orange to create this fall inspired event that gave off a touch of masculinity and warmth. We feel in love with the stationery and signage from Sablewood that featured the most beautiful ribbon, copper wax seals and elements of paper and wood. Oh, and those cakes by Blue Box Bakery, almost to beautiful to eat! A big thank you to Alante Photography for capturing all the details!

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
