Sabrina & Justin’s Alderbrook Resort Wedding

Growing up, the Hood Canal was a special place for Sabrina and her family as Sabrina’s parents had a home on the shores of the Hood Canal in Sund Rock, not too far away from Alderbrook Resort. When Justin asked Sabrina to be his wife they knew that Alderbrook Resort would be the perfect place to celebration their union! (haha, union in Union, WA) Pulling in the natural beauty of the area and Sabrina’s favorite color purple, we helped plan their dream wedding complete with a Pacific Northwest inspired menu and a stunning wedding cake designed by Carla of Honey Crumb Cake Studio featuring layers of tissue-thin fondant, accented with edible gold leaf and cascading branches of sugar flowers all inspired by the colors of an oyster shell which are in abundance in the area!

Investor Appreciation Reception at Glendale Country Club

We have the pleasure of working with a number of clients on their annual events including the annual Investor Appreciation Reception for Legacy Group Capitol. Every fall the reception is hosted after their Shareholder Meeting and is filled with music, beautiful floral and delicious bites. This past fall their annual event was held at Glendale Country Club.

I can’t images doing an event without the help of BreeAnn. She is an expert at what she does. Her attention to detail, her work either and creative ideas are only a dent at what she brings to the table. When you work with BreeAnn you get the whole package. Years of experience, a network of vendors that have been vetted and her absolute willingness to go the extra mile. Events are hard work, but when working with BreeAnn it does not feel like work. Her energy and fun personality make the behind the scenes work a joy. Not only does she help build the vision and experience of the event she executes the details with ease. I will use BreeAnn in all our events.” ~ Lori

Julie & Walter ~ Summer Wedding at UW Center for Urban Horticulture

sunset_bridal_portraits

Julie and Walter’s story begins at a VA medical center. It might not be the first place you think of when you think ‘romance.’ Still, love can happen in peculiar places, and in this case they met within the walls of the Primary Care Clinic. It happened over four years ago. For those who don’t know, Julie is a physician with a social worker’s heart; Walter is a social worker who once played a physician on stage. They both do their work with focus, compassion and gusto. Maybe it’s that enthusiasm they first noticed in each other. As anyone who works in a busy, stressful place will tell you, it is risky to ask a coworker out on a date, even if only for a dog walk or an evening of Karaoke with coworkers. Still that’s how their romance started—what is life if not a gamble?

For those of you who don’t know, Walter was Julie’s assigned social worker. Indeed, he was. Until he fired her, that is. You see, Walter felt a little dizzy when they worked together. And Julie relied on her social worker a lot, rarely missing an opportunity to refer a homeless patient or a distressed caregiver. Walter had to compose himself after meetings with Dr. Silverman—focus was a challenge after those encounters. So Walter met with his supervisor and requested a change. “Dr. Silverman gives me too much work,” he lied. “I need to disperse my efforts. She’s not the only doctor I work with, you know. She can’t rule my time.” Once separated from the tension, though, he couldn’t separate her from his thoughts. Action was needed. In one of those impulses that changes the course of lives, Walter asked Julie out.

On a blustery Saturday morning, Walter and Julie took their dogs, Buddy and Louie, for a walk around Seward Park. And the rest, as they say, is history. After a year spent together hiking, skiing, backpacking, traveling, sharing poetry and music, dancing, cooking and baseball and spending time with friends and family they married on July 7, 2017 at the UW Center for Urban Horticulture. bride_hugging_mom bride_getting_ready

While Julie wanted a more simplistic all white wedding, Walter wished for all the colors under the sun. And so the first of compromises in a marriage was had, white linens for Julie with bright floral for Walter. On a beautiful July summer day, Julie and Walter married in the round, under the Chuppah, as loved ones watched them repeat their vows. With the breaking of the glass, they were officially wed and it was time to celebrate! As the sounds of a Klezmer Band played guests dined on appetizers, sipped cool beverages and meandered through the tree filled grove. With guests seated under the reception tent, the Rabbi did a blessing over the Challah. A delicious meal broken up with toasts ended as the sounds of a bagpipe led friends and family up to the McVay Courtyard where Walter serenaded Julie before taking their first dance as husband and wife. A night of dancing, cake and the Hora were had before wedding guests were shuttled back to their hotel late that evening.  Photos by Lucas Mobley Photography groom_getting_ready first_look first_look first_look first_look first_look ketubah family_photos family_photos family_photos ketubah__and_marriage_license_signing ketubah__and_marriage_license_signing ketubah__and_marriage_license_signing ketubah__and_marriage_license_signing ketubah__and_marriage_license_signing welcome_sign Huppa wedding_ceremony_site huppa_details wedding_ceremony boys_at_wedding_ceremony bride_walking_down_the_aisle jewish_wedding_ceremony stomping_the_glass jewish_wedding_ceremony cocktail_hour_site passed_appetizers Klezmer_band cocktail_hour_under_trees wedding_guests_mingle wedding_guests_mingle wedding_guests_mingle sunset_bridal_portraits sunset_bridal_portraits sunset_bridal_portraits challah_bread reception_table_details reception_table_details wedding_toasts_and_speeches wedding_toasts_and_speeches wedding_toasts_and_speeches wedding_toasts_and_speeches wedding_toasts_and_speeches bagpiper_leading_guests cake_details cake_cutting

Tonight we’re dreaming of summer love and looking back over one romantic garden wedding at Jardin del Sol captured by Alante Photography. Kristine and Curtis had a vision for their wedding and we were honored to be the planning and designing team making their dreams come to reality! Family and friends were the focus that warm summer day as they tied the knot. One of our favorite additions were the homemade pickles that Kristine spent countless hours in the kitchen crafting to ensure their guests left with something from their heart!
