Fall Wine Country Wedding at Novelty Hill-Januik Winery

Eight years after meeting at a bar in Capital Hill, Leslie and Mike were celebrating with their family and friends last fall at Novelty Hill – Januik Winery. While the colorful fall leaves set the stage during the ceremony, a neutral color palette accented with blush, light green and pops of eggplant filled the rest of the venue.

Following their first look at Novelty Hill-Januik Winery and photos in the surrounding area, Leslie and Mike’s wedding party and family joined in for photos.

Tray-passed Spring Run Rose greeted guests as they arrived for the ceremony. The ceremony chairs were accented with eucalyptus vines and wine barrels with blush and eggplant floral centerpieces highlighted the alter. While Leslie and Mike were the focus of the ceremony their nieces added some extra cuteness as they walked down the aisle as flower girls.

Following a cocktail hour filled with wine, lawn game and appetizers; Leslie, Mike and their Wedding Party entered the dinner reception with the song ‘Canned Heat’ by Jamiroquia played. If you haven’t recognized the song it’s from the dance scene in Napolean Dynamite, a favorite of Leslie and Mike’s.

A dinner buffet complete with artisan bread and butter, salads, lemon roasted potatoes, marinated beets, grilled asparagus, ancho-coffee rubbed chicken and pan-seared crispy skin salmon delighted all appetites!

Andrea was my day of coordinator and she knew the venue inside and out. She was always prompt to answer any questions and had all the details figured out. She made the day run super smooth, even my guests commented how professional she was and how she made sure everything was just right. At the end of the night she sent my husband and I home with a little snack and drink package and when a bridesmaid left her shoes at the venue she dropped them off at the hotel. I could not recommend getting a day of coordinator more and Pink Blossom was a wonderful experience ~ Leslie

Shannon & Jonathan’s September Wedding at JM Cellars

As their officiant spoke to friends and family he told the story of Shannon and Jonathan’s first meeting and what brought guests to JM Cellars last September…”Shannon and Jonathan happened to meet at my wedding in Washington DC. A relationship seemed unlikely as Shannon lived in Philadelphia and Jonathan in DC. Luckily, Shannon is a pretty avid sports fan and the Phillies were visiting the Nationals a couple of weekends after, so Shannon made the trek to DC to go to the game and visit Jonathan. The following weekend, Jonathan was up in Philly. This pattern continued for almost 2 years, a lot of their life spent sitting in traffic on 95! “

A cheek squeeze, a first look and a window peeper trying to be incognito with a fake mustache gave us a good laugh!

JM Cellars set the stage for a Pacific Northwest inspired fall wedding as Shannon & Jonathan celebrated with loved ones this past September. Greenery, candlelight, and minimal floral touches were all accented with acrylic and glass signage.  Accents of taupe and navy could be found in the bridesmaid’s taupe dresses and navy suits were the perfect fit for the groomsmen & Jonathan’s Suits.

As tray passed appetizers came around and the bar opened Shannon and Jonathan were most excited about their must have Oyster Bar! Taylor Shellfish Farms Kumamoto, Shigoku & Pacific Oysters were enjoyed!

As Harold Beslkus duo played in the background Shannon & Jonathan had their first dance outside on in front of JM Cellars copper doors before friends and family were invited inside for dinner.

After finding their names on tent folded escort cards, which played double duty as place cards noting entree choices, guests found their seats among tables cover in ivory linens and topped with greenery centerpieces (round tables featured a greenery wreath / rectangle tables featured a greenery garland) and floating candles.  Place settings featured ivory napkins on top of Aria Rose Gold chargers. Two dinner menus by Paper Fling were placed tables for sharing.

Dinner began with a mixed green salad of poached pears, candied walnuts, chevre cheese and a champagne vinaigrette and Macrina artisan rolls with sweet cream butter. Entrees were split between braised boneless short ribs and northwest salmon fillets each accompanied by grilled late summer asparagus and sea salt roasted garlic mashers.

After toasts, Shannon hit the dance floor with her father and Jonathan his mother. With the dance floor open an ice cream bar (vanilla, chocolate, and Rocky Road ice cream with a topping of chocolate sauce, sprinkles, Reeses M&M’s, whipped cream and cherries) and Lowrider Baking Co cookie station (brown butter triple chocolate chunk, cookies and cream, s’mores and double chocolate peanut butter chip) opened!

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!

Lisa & Zach’s Wedding ~ September 26, 2015

Last week we paid a visit back to Spring Creek Ranch and reminisced about Lisa and Zach’s wedding weekend in the Methow Valley that took place last year at this very time. Their wedding day was the highlight among a full weekend of activities including a BBQ Welcome Dinner the night before and Post Wedding Brunch to end the weekend. Ryan Flynn Photography captures the story of one remarkable wedding day at Spring Creek Ranch! lisazachwedding1_9-26-15 lisazachwedding2_9-26-15 lisazachwedding3_9-26-15 lisazachwedding4_9-26-15 lisazachwedding5_9-26-15 lisazachwedding6_9-26-15 lisazachwedding7_9-26-15 lisazachwedding8_9-26-15 lisazachwedding9_9-26-15 lisazachwedding10_9-26-15 lisazachwedding11_9-26-15 lisazachwedding12_9-26-15 lisazachwedding13_9-26-15 lisazachwedding14_9-26-15 lisazachwedding15_9-26-15 lisazachwedding16_9-26-15 lisazachwedding17_9-26-15 lisazachwedding18_9-26-15 lisazachwedding19_9-26-15 lisazachwedding20_9-26-15 lisazachwedding21_9-26-15 lisazachwedding22_9-26-15 lisazachwedding23_9-26-15 Congratulations Lisa & Zach!

Tanya & Dan ~ October 9, 2015

As we work on final wedding details for two upcoming Alderbrook Resort & Spa weddings we look back at Tanya and Dan’s Alderbrook Wedding last October. Having met on Match.com Tanya and Dan knew they wanted their families to enjoy a relaxing and memorable wedding with their close friends and family. With a small team of vendors their wedding day was exactly what they envisioned! Truly a beautiful day captured by Dana Pleasant Photography.

Steven & Jessica ~ September 2014

As kids head back to school this week and the official end to summer (aka Labor Day Weekend) has passed, we look forward to a full season of fall weddings ahead! One of our favorites from last year was Steven and Jessica’s fall inspired Melrose Market Studios wedding. We were honored to plan their dream wedding complete with a dessert bar themed after their three dogs waffle, oreo and sprinkles! Photos by MKippen Photography.

Spectacularly flawless. After I proposed 13 months ago, I immediately started looking at wedding planners on Yelp. I contacted three. Of the two that got back to me, I was seriously impressed by how organized, professional, and prepared BreeAnn was at our initial meeting. My (now) wife and I had no idea what we wanted out of a wedding, just that it should be in September and that we had vague ideas involving our dogs. BreeAnn was reassuring, though, and put us at-ease immediately; we made a decision within a day and she got to work right away. If I recall correctly, she had started sending us venue recommendations before she’d even received our first payment!

I don’t think a single vendor she recommended was a miss. She had a different DJ in mind than those preferred by the venue we picked out – we’re glad we met with him, because he was easily the second best vendor we hired. In fact, the only time we went “off menu” was for the bride’s hair/makeup, and I think we regretted it.

BreeAnn was very responsive, kept detailed notes of every interaction we had (both with her and with venues), and was also very flexible in working with our schedules. To echo other reviews, we heard from multiple vendors that they love to work with her, and I can understand why. We never even met with the florist – she had recommended one in Kirkland, which was a difficult trip for me. At that point I trusted her judgment enough to just let her handle it. Sure enough, the flowers were beautiful, delivery was handled without my involvement, just like everything else.

On wedding day this weekend she was a godsend, completely on top of everything so that we could just bask in a perfectly executed ceremony and reception. Sure, there were (very minor) hiccups, but she dealt with them immediately and I was not only able to enjoy my wedding, I even had the chance to eat a full dinner! When the dessert bar ran out of our macarons before we had a chance to have one, she even tracked one down for us. Many family and friends were praising her involvement today. I would highly recommend hiring BreeAnn for day-of coordination if you aren’t thinking of doing a full planning package, but really, I’d highly recommend that as well. We would not have been able to pull things off without her. ~ Steven
