Weddings in Woodinville 2020 – Willows Lodge

Inspired by the beauty of the Pacific Northwest we showcased the natural elements surrounding us at Willows Lodge for this year’s Weddings In Woodinville. Rustic metals and cement mixed in with the lush forest greenery highlighted by the watery blues and pops of mustard, burnt orange and dusty pink inspired us for this year’s design.

As guests arrived at Willows Lodge they were greeted by a 1957 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud accented with floral by Fena Flowers and directed to the Sammamish Ballroom. A program designed in collaboration with Paper Fling featured a map of Willows Lodge with event highlights from the menu to a list of vendors to meet and room for notes along the way!

In the foyer an inspiration board highlighted the design elements and gave way to a quick jump in The Luxe Photo Booth from The SnapBar and a sample of Nutty Squirrel’s Gelato. Yum!

Making their way into the Sammamish Ballroom newlyweds and their friends and family mingled with vendors as they were inspired by ideas and nibbled on bites from Barking Frog. A few even danced on the dance floor as Bugsie Productions provided the tunes. The dance floor was highlighted with overhead greenery and dripping orchids. Flanking the dance floor, two lounge areas from Vintage Ambiance featuring Grace, a 1930’s champagne velveteen couch and Winston, a 1930’s gray couch. The lounge areas were accented with arctic blue pillows from BBJ Linen and lush floral arrangements in compote copper containers.

And not to miss were the reception tables that were there to inspire one’s design. On the east side of the room two artisan light wood tables capped with vineyard chairs from Pedersen’s set the stage for a dramatic king’s table. A moss escort board with escort cards pined by copper pins was accented by floral and fern accents. Place settings surrounded a lush tablespace from Fena Flowers. Cement containers were filled with a mixture of elements. Low round containers were filled with moss, orchid blooms and mercury gold votives while other cement containers were bursting with blooms and ferns; all surrounded by moss and clear and gold mercury votives. At each place setting white coupe chargers and dinner plates were paired with white hemstitch napkins, a fern garnish and white dinner menus backed with a blush cameo backer and wrapped in copper wire. Place cards following suite of the dinner menus, modern glassware and copper silverware from Pedersen’s Rentals completed the place settings.

A sweet bar by Seatown Sweets led guests off the dance floor as they let their sweet tooth take the lead. A central two-tiered cake with a rustic concrete buttercream finish was accented with roses and ferns and topped with a copper cake topper “Our Adventure Begins” from Pomp & Revel. A one tier ombre yellow cutting cake and a hand painted floral buttercream cutting cake were on display. Not to miss the sugar cookies and cupcakes! Setting the background for the dessert bar, a boxwood hedge from Pedersen’s was covered in a moss base, accented by iron gates from Vintage Ambiance then adorned with floral arrangements by Fena Flowers.

On the west side of the room a trio of rounds with vineyard chairs were featured. The central reception table was adorned with BBJ’s notte lucca linen and a PNW Inspired centerpiece arranged in a compote copper container highlighted with blooms in shades of mustard, burnt orange and dusty pink and plenty of greenery. Goldstone blush chargers brought in the metallic copper elements. A crowd favorite were the napkins at each place setting. The arctic velvet and turmeric velvet napkins from BBJ Linen were pulled together by a handmade copper wire napkin ring and greenery garnish by Fena Flowers. A combo dinner menu and place card incorporating the elements finished off the place settings in addition to the copper utensils from Pedersen’s. On either side of this table were rounds fitted with BBJ Linen’s rosa linen and a lush floral centerpiece all circled by vineyard chairs.

Outside in the tented patio off the ballroom a Wine Lounge was enjoyed! Solo guitarist, Robbie Christmas, played. His repertoire spanned from the 1960’s all the way up to current day hits. After grabbing a tasting of wine from Patterson Cellars (Melange Blanc, Forbidden Rose or their Due Anni) guests sat amongst the lounge furniture from Vintage Ambiance. Our favorite, the green Eve couch and coordinating bench were on hand.

Leaving the tent guests made their way to the Ceremony Gazebo. Along the way they were invited to stop and make a wish by tossing a penny into the cement birdbath from Vintage Ambiance that had been filled with moss and roses.

At the Ceremony Gazebo it was all about the grand entrance! Boxwood hedges covered in a moss base flanked either side of the ceremony entrance and were accented by iron gates from Vintage Ambiance then adorned with PNW Inspired floral arrangements and branches from Fena Flowers. At the back of the aisle two tall artisan tables from Pedersen’s were covered in tablescapes by Fena Flowers, allowed for a place for ceremony programs to rest. Programs by Paper Fling featured copper foil names, charcoal ink and a copper paper backer.  Lush ferns arrangements in wood cubes and moss lined the aisle. Vineyard chairs faced the front of the ceremony which in addition to the grand entrance to the ceremony may be one of our favorite elements of the design! As a nod to Woodinville Wine Country a wine blending ceremony was displayed on an artisan wood table up front. Overhead seven carriage lights from Vintage Ambiance glowed. A boxwood hedge backdrop was accented by lush floral panels incorporating greenery, ferns, moss, branches and fronted by iron gates from Vintage Ambiance. Pacific Northwest inspired floral arrangements and branches from Fena Flowers finished off the ceremony setting.

Before departing, guests were led into the Gilman Room at Willows Lodge which was set for a rehearsal dinner. Although the setup could easily be mimicked for an intimate wedding reception. Two long reception tables were accented with chairs from Willows Lodge and covered in sand angelina linens from BBJ Linen. A tablescape showcasing a variety of cement containers by Fena Flowers. Some featured a simple ferns while round cement containers were filled with floating blooms and candles while others were filled a variety of foliage from ferns, moss, fern curls, evergreen branches and pops of white blooms.  Place settings by Willows Lodge were topped with BBJ Linen’s martinique ivory napkins and dinner menus with a copper wax seal by Paper Fling. Each dinner menu featured a thank you from the couple as well as a different question for the table. Perfect for a rehearsal dinner or an intimate celebration to inspire conversation amongst the table.

And not to miss, a high point of the day was earlier that morning before guests arrived. With the venue set, Jennifer Tai Photo Artistry captured the beauty of our work with a bride in tow. Incorporating the natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest, Bridal Beauty Agency worked their magic on hair and makeup while Fena Flowers created one stunning floral necklace and bouquet. For the bride’s gown, we worked with French Knot Couture to create a custom dress to complete the theme. The ivory Willow Gown made for one stunning addition to the look! The ivory Willow Gown featured a fully boned silk bodice and corset style grommet closure with a skirt accented with branch embroidery.  Stunning!

A big thank you to the team of vendors who helped pull off our vision!

Alli & Andy’s Alderbrook Resort Wedding

Waterfront Weddings and the Pacific Northwest come hand in hand. Alli and Andy’s wedding at Alderbrook Resort & Spa was the ultimate waterfront wedding filled with laughter, romance, beautiful details and a touch of royalty! Soft florals, a hint of blush, rich green accents and a pop of navy came together to create one stunning day on the Hood Canal all photographed by Alexandra Knight Photography. Alderbrook was a special place for Alli and Andy. Not only were they marrying at Alderbrook but the location of Any’s proposed and a place they had gone on vacation with Alli’s parents the same week the prior year.

One of our favorite stories from Alli and Andy’s wedding is the story of Alli’s dress. In the words of Alli, here is that very story:

“While enjoying the Rick Steve’s walking tour of Madrid last October, my maid of honor Lauren and I were both taken by a dress shop we happened to be walking by. We’d started the initial, “what kind of dress do you want?” steps of wedding dress shopping with my mom in Seattle, but hadn’t found anything that jumped out at us. This was different, but Andy was also walking about 20ft ahead of us with our friend Erik… so we had to move fast.

Lauren and I ducked into the store and quickly texted the guys on our group chat to let them know that we’d meet them at the hotel because we’d stopped into a dress shop. Erik surprised us both when he responded, “the dress shop.” Lauren and I had been behind in our audio guide and it turned out that the next stop on the guide was for Pronovias, “a famous Spanish wedding-dress shop that attracts brides-to-be from across Europe.

The dresses were gorgeous and I was bummed we were leaving Madrid the next morning. While internetting from the hotel that night, I found out the Pronovias flagship was actually in Barcelona, our next city! I immediately sent a request for an appointment. Their only available one was our last afternoon before we flew home the next morning. I booked it, figuring we’d have fun and just try on a bunch of random dresses.

After finishing our sightseeing with the group, Lauren and I left the guys at Barça Stadium and headed to our appointment. We sat down with a wonderful sales associate and as we explained Alderbrook and what I was looking for… her eyes lit up. I’ll save you the long ending and just say, I bought the first dress she had me try on. We did our due diligence and tried on some others… but then I put the first one back on to FaceTime my mom back in WA and show her and she immediately removed some of our negotiating power by yelling, “YES TO THE DRESS” loud enough for the associate to hear!

The dress fit like it was made for me and they even altered the front hem overnight so we could pick it up on the way to the airport and I could carry it home on our flights. Still feels surreal no matter how many times I tell the story!

Incorporating their favorite things, Alli and Andy, welcome their friends and family to Alderbrook with these custom welcome gifts created by Welcome Gifts by Pink Blossom Events. Swedish Fish, Theo Chocolate bars, Fremont Brewing summer ale (or Dry Soda), a pair of custom pint glasses printed by Pomp & Revel, apples and a Seattle inspired tote bag.

After a private first look within Alderbrook’s trail system, Alli and Andy gathered with their wedding party and family for photos.

Their wedding party was looking sharp! Bridesmaids in forest green floor length dresses with Andy and his groomsmen in cobalt blue suits and complimentary green ties. Bridesmaids bouquets were composed of lush greenery with white floral accents (ranunculus, hydrangea, roses, lisianthus) and a touch of blue thistle. Alli’s bouquet was of similar composition yet stood out with her favorite Sara Bernhardt pink peonies – stunning!

“I love her and that’s the beginning and end of everything.” F. Scott Fitzgerald

With the Hood Cancal as their backdrop, Alli & Andy were wed!

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. 1 Corinthians 13:4-8

Cheers! With the signing of the marriage license, the newlyweds joined cocktail hour! Grand Marnier Prawns, Heirloom Tomato Ragout, Bacon Endives, and Mushroom Tartlets were tray passed.

With cocktail hour over, loved ones found their names written (in white via a local calligrapher) on emerald green escort cards from Dahlia Press displayed in individual gold frames.

Sitting under the clear top tent, guests found their tables which were covered in white linens, circled with gold chameleon chairs and topped with stunning centerpieces in gold compote vases from Fena Flowers, square mirrored table numbers and gold mercury votives sourced by Alli. Place settings were signified with Veneto gold chargers accented with fern leaves displayed underneath and accent with forest green dinner menus.

Falling in love with Prince Harry and Meghan Markler’s weddig cake, we worked with Alderbrook Resort’s pastry chef and Fena Flowers to create Alli & Andy’s very own royal wedding cake! Three delicious flavors were awaiting to be enjoyed as the newlyweds were announced into dinner and kicked off dinner with a ceremonial cake cutting. Marble cake with vanilla buttercream frosting and raspberry preserves; vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream frosting and blueberry preserves and a vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream frosting and blueberry preserves.

After dinner, highlighted by duo plates of beef filet & salmon, slices of wedding cake and flutes of champagne were served in anticipation of toasts soon to come. After toasts first dances were held on the outdoor patio before the ballroom doors opened to kick off a night of dancing and ice cream sandwiches!

A trio of ice cream sandwich flavors made choosing a favorite flavor a hard one! Canal crunch ice cream with toffee cookie; vanilla ice cream with chocolate chip cookie and mint chocolate ice cream with chocolate cookie were all a hit!

…thank you SO much BreeAnn for all you have done to make this such an incredible wedding weekend – Alli

Matt & David’s Fall Wedding at The Foundry by Herban Feast

We fell in love working with Matt and David planning and designing their September wedding at The Foundry by Herban Feast. Every detail of their wedding held a significant meaning to their relationship and we couldn’t have been more thrilled with how their day unfolded!

Mr. Puppy may have been just as excited as his parents were that day!

Passing by these whiskey barrels displayed at The Foundry I proposed the idea of creating custom letters and numbers that would fit inside each of the barrels paying tribute to Matt and David’s special day. Working with Pomp & Revel the barrels were transformed with custom wood letters and numbers all accented by greenery from Fena Flowers. One of our favorite details of the day! A great photo backdrop too!

After signing their engagement album guests entered the Press Room as songs from musicals Matt and David had seen together played. The room was all a glow with candlelight and warm uplighting against the lush ivory draping surrounding the room. 

During their ceremony Matt and David honored the Scottish “Quaich Ceremony” or “Love Cup” with Glenlivet 21 Archive Scotch. The whiskey has been Matthew’s favorite since David introduced him to it. 

 

After signing the marriage license and changing their Facebook relationship status together at the same time from “In A Relationship” to “Married,” Matt and David joined friends and family for cocktail hour. 

A custom bar featured signature Manhattan’s, L’Ecole 41 Cabernet Sauvignon which they shared on their first date and Fruli Strawberry Beer which is a perennial favorite from the Seattle International Beerfest. 

While friends and family enjoyed tray passed appetizers of shaved beef tenderloin tartlets, mac & cheese croquettes and grilled Tuscan chicken brochettes others were making the most of the custom Scotch and Chocolate pairing. Three pairings, served on a custom pairing board we design in collaboration with Pomp & Revel, featured pairings of Aberlour A’Bunadh + Dark Chocolate: Lagavulin 16 + Dark Chocolate with Caramel and the Glenlivet 21 Archive + Milk Chocolate with Almonds. Custom chocolates were all made by Kelly’s Chocolates. Definitely a crowd hit!

With the Press Room flipped from ceremony to dinner reception, loved ones were invited to find their seat for dinner via the wood escort board and matching wood table numbers. Tables covered in a cobalt panama linen were accented with lush greenery rounds highlighted with floating candles. Pinspots on each table and uplights gave the room it’s perfect lighting!

Combo dinner menus and place cards gave note to the meal they would enjoy ahead and let serves know each guests entrée choice.

Along with wedding cake (almond cake with an apricot filling and vanilla icing) a Sweet Bite Bar featuring frosted sugar cookie bars, a double chocolate brownie, apricot macarons, snickerdoodle cookies and raspberry cheesecake shooters were served!

As their first dance song “Falling Slowly” played, Matt and David danced on the clouds. The song, from Once, payed tribute to their first date. With the dance floor open guests danced the night away and occasionally broke away to play a game of shuffle board or corn hole. Shuffle board played a special role in their relationship as they played shuffle board together on one of their first dates at Capitol Cider.

BreeAnn, we could not have done any of this without your amazing help and support! Thank you for helping making this day so special. ~ Matthew and David

Monica & Branden’s Chateau Lill Wedding

We LOVE a good love story and Monica and Branden’s was just that. Here is a bit of their story as described by them…”Monica and Branden’s love story began in Eugene, OR back in the fall of 2009, although they didn’t know it yet. They actually wouldn’t know it until 4 years later, when they met towards the end of senior year at the University of Oregon. Monica used to study in Branden’s room with his dorm-mate, while Branden was glued to his laptop listening to music, or a good sports podcast. The two would continue to cross paths throughout college without meeting, until the spring of 2013, when they were officially introduced by a mutual friend.

After graduation, Branden moved to California and Monica moved back to Washington. They stayed close, despite being so far apart, talking on the phone and texting every day. They decided to plan a trip to see each other. After the trip, they picked up right where they left off that last month of college. The trips became more frequent, and both started traveling back and forth from San Jose to Seattle to see each other. Once every few months turned into once a month, then eventually they were traveling to see each other every two weeks.

After two years of a long-distance relationship, Monica decided to make the big move to the Bay Area with Branden. It was a scary decision for both of them, but they trusted their hearts. They started to build a life together in the little town of Campbell, CA, spending countless days exploring the Bay Area, taking trips to Tahoe, wine tasting in Napa and Paso Robles, and playing some good ol’ Pokemon Go.

Fast forward to September 15, 2017. Branden knew he had met the one and proposed to Monica in Sausalito, CA. On a beautiful summer night, he got down on one knee with the Golden Gate Bridge in the background, and asked her, “Will you marry me?” She said yes.

On August 10, 2019 their Love Story celebrated a milestone as they became Mr. & Mrs. Fitzpatrick. B.Jones Photography captured one beautiful Chateau Lill wedding day!

 

 

With a seal of the kiss, they were officially Husband and Wife!

Monica and Branden celebrated with dinner and toasts under the reception tent at Chateau Lill highlighted with floral arrangements by Fena Flowers. Our favorite detail was the rosemary infused olive oils handcrafted by the couple and Monica’s mom! The dinner by Herban Feast was delicious and the toast by Branden’s brother had us belly laughing and shedding a tear at the same time.

The bride & groom incorporated their love of pineapples into the decor including this AMAZING grooms Pineapple Cake from BAKED.

BreeAnn, thank you so much for making everything happen tonight. You are so good at your job and a pleasure to work with. I appreciated every little thing you did today! ❤️❤️❤️ – Monica

Kristin & Eric’s Willows Lodge Wedding

When Eric and Kristin married last July at Willows Lodge it was all about food, wine, tea, Kristin’s love of bold colors and of course a few hamsters which are their favorite. (Don’t worry, the hamsters were not real, just on the paper goods.) Our favorite detail was the teal wedding cake designed by Honey Crumb Cake Studio which was accented with bright yellow, orange and purple sugar flowers. When the cake was cut guests found a bright purple ube cake inside. Congratulations Eric and Kristin!

Thanks again for everything – the wedding was amazing and everything went super smoothly! Eric and I had a really great time and you were wonderful to work with! Thanks very much!      ~ Kristin

Emily & Jason’s French Countryside Inspired Chateau Lill Wedding

Jason and Emily’s engagement began when Jason proposed to Emily while they were vacationing in Paris. It was a storybook proposal that set the theme for their French inspired wedding at Chateau Lill last August. With a desire for an intimate and relaxed wedding as well as a nod to the French countryside, Jason and Emily worked with their vendors to pull off their dream wedding which incorporated a color palette of sage, cream, warm blush and gold. With the help of Fena Flowers, Jason and Emily added in paths of potted trees to soften the space and worked with Vintage Ambiance to fill the Chateau with hand selected pieces of furniture to create a warm and casual atmosphere. A few of our favorite details include the wood arbor built by the Father of the Bide as well as the salted caramels by Blue Box Bakery adorned with olive sprigs.  And not to forget, true to the theme, Emily wore a Parisian wedding dress ensuring no detail was overlooked. Images of their wedding day captured by Azzura Photography.

Wooden signs created by Chalk.Ink.Style, featured custom artwork to match the floral from the couple’s invitations guided guests throughout the day.

Kaspar’s provided on-theme signature cocktails, a Rosemary French 75 & French Old Fashioned, for guests to enjoy post ceremony and into the reception. Later that evening guests were treated to an espresso bar, by Espresso Elegance.

 

Dear Andrea, Thank you so much for all your help in making all the details of Emily and Jason’s wedding absolutely perfect. One of our friends called it a fairy tale wedding and it really was. Steve even complemented you on how you were always there to help when needed.  We really appreciate everything you did to make it a once in a lifetime experience for Emily and Jason. Emily said it exceeded her expectations, and I think a lot of that is due to you. Many thanks from all of us, Sally, Steve, Emily and Jason

Juliana & John’s Alderbrook Resort Wedding

After meeting on eharmony, Juliana and John were inseparable! Juliana and John chose Alderbrook Resort for their wedding as they spend a lot of time in the area at their cabin on the Alderbrook Golf Course and wanted an opportunity to showcase their home away from home to friends & family! They turned to Pink Blossom Events to plan their dream wedding complete with trivia and karaoke. Our favorite details included the subtle ways they included their parents who had past away. Juliana chose garden roses in her bouquet and at their place settings as a nod to her parents who kept an incredible rose garden. In addition photo lockets were attached to both Juliana’s bouquet and John’s boutonniere featuring their images. While they are avid Seahawks fans, they chose a softer blue and green color palette to fit within the natural environment at Alderbrook. Photos of one unforgettable wedding day by Carol Harrold Photography.

                 

Hi BreeAnn, Thank you so much for everything. We received so many compliments on everything–the flowers, the ceremony, the reception, the food, etc. It was a glorious weekend…I couldn’t even imagine doing a fraction of this without you. All the vendors were top notch and it was definitely my dream wedding. ~ Juliana

Employee Appreciation Harvest Party

School has begun which means fall is around the corner. The coming of fall has us dreaming of crisp autumn evenings, pumpkins and pie. Today we look back at an Employee Appreciation Harvest Party we had the opportunity to plan last fall. With the promise of a party at the owner’s home if the company reached their ultimate sales goal, the employees took on the challenge and surpassed that goal! With less than a month until the celebration we pulled together a Harvest Party for their sales team and family members that left their guests feeling both appreciated and grateful to be part of a successful team milestone.

As guests arrived at the designated parking lot noted in their invite they were picked up by Butler Seattle shuttles who transported them ten minutes down the road to our client’s home. Guests exited the shuttles and were greeted with a glass of wine and tray passed appetizers as they took in the event displayed in front of them. The upper lawn featured Pumpkin Ring Toss, two Pumpkin Tic Tac Toe Boards, Pumpkin Bowling, Corn Hole, a Paint Your Own Pumpkin Station and a photo booth incorporating cornstalks, haybales and custom props.

Scattered throughout the property were five raffle stations which asked employees and their family to guess the number of harvest themed candies in each jar. Those closest to the correct number were given prizes ranging from an overnight stay at a local casino to tickets to a pro football game. Not bad! These prizes were announced at the end of dinner prior to the start of dessert.                   

Inside the home guests were given free range of the kitchen, deck and game room downstairs. Making their way outside on the waterfront side of the home, a live band playing country and rock hits set the mood. A second bar as well as various options for seating allowed guests to enjoy the music and the beauty of the lake. A bit too cold for swimming but the perfect backdrop for live music!

     

When the dinner bell rang, employees gathered underneath the tent that sat upon our clients tennis court.  Long farm tables adorned with mum centerpieces and pumpkins were on display.

After dinner guests enjoyed root beer floats, mulled apple cider and hot cocoa. Apple, marionberry and pumpkin pies were also a hit!

As guests mingled with coworkers and introduced their family members to their coworkers that afternoon, my clients rejoiced in seeing their employees enjoying a celebration planned solely for their achievements. During the fall inspired dinner one could hear laughter and the joy of a successful collaboration. There were toasts of triumph, talks of future goals and a sense of pride of what one dedicated team can accomplish. The opening of the pie bar capped a sweet sales victory!
