Liz & Ashwin’s Home Wedding

Ashwin and Liz’s love story started when they meet through mutual friends at work and their journey to marriage began when Ashwin proposed the Sunday after Thanksgiving with their dog Bruce, followed by dinner at one of their favorite neighborhood restaurants, Raccolto. Choosing Liz’s childhood home for the venue we worked with Liz, Ashwin and their parents as they weaved together the gardens that were so important to Liz’s parents as well as Indian elements ensuring that things were simple, yet meaningful. {Photos by Clara Ganey Photography}

The significance of the elephant to Liz and Ashwin is not only rooted in the values that the elephant represents (wisdom, memory, power, longevity, loyalty, reliability, and determination) but also because of it’s cultural prominence in India, where Liz and Ashwin grew so close.

The ceremony, officiated by their two dads, was highlighted with a love song written and sang by Ashwin during the ceremony.

Kaspars Catering served one delicious family style Indian dinner featuring some of the couples favorite dishes.

BreeAnn,

As I’m pulling out my computer for the first time, I wanted to take the time to send a little longer thank you email than I could write on my phone.  We are so beyond pleased with how well everything went, and cannot thank you enough.  Our wedding was everything we wanted it to be, and ran so smoothly (even your quick decisions on the shuttle!) thanks to your expertise.  So many guests been saying it was the best wedding they have been to.  

Thank you so much for all of the time and effort you put into making this so incredible over the last 9 months.  You gave amazing recommendations on vendors, and everything came together just perfectly.

Awakening of Spring ~ JM Cellars

groom-looks-lovingly-at-bride

Inspired by the awakening of spring, we teamed up with Gather Design Company on this JM Cellars shoot. Using the soft, delicate bounty of spring, set against the masculine setting at JM Cellars, we were inspired by the soft and bright spring tones and textures. Incorporating the spring colors of mustard, pale yellows, soft peaches and a faint pink it was a new beginning, the start of a love story for the ages. Blooming branches, fluffy ranunculus and a few clean-lined anthurium set the tone for the inspiration. The flowers were layed on top of luxe velvet linens from La Tavola and carefully chosen rental items. The bridal gown, both clean and modern, but also romantic, made this one magical shoot all captured by Blue Rose Photography

The Sketchbook Series Seattle

finished-sketches

This spring we were delighted to be the official planner for The Sketchbook Series Seattle at JM Cellars. The Sketchbook Series is a two-day creative and educational sketch workshop, founded by Mary Phan, which teaches fellow creative professionals how to leverage sketching as a tool; enabling them to engage with their imaginations and deliver design concepts in an artistic way, while opening the door to creative collaboration with fellow design and creative professionals.

A host of creative professionals joined us at JM Cellars in a beautifully inspired classroom, co-designed by Pink Blossom Events and Gather Design Company. Pink Blossom Events and Gather Design Company conceptualized “An Awakening” to celebrate the coming of spring and all of its bounty.  In a color palette of mustard, yellow, peach, orange, blush, ivory, and white, Gather Design Company created effortless, airy arrangements with the best that spring has to offer:  ranunculus, tulips, garden roses, sweet peas, and blooming plum, quince and forsythia branches.  The design included full blooms as well as more intricate blooms to give workshop attendees a chance to learn to sketch a variety of different flowers.  The range of warm colors was echoed in the velvet table linens from La Tavola, which cascaded down the walls and onto the tables where attendees sat for lunch.  The designers also utilized layering of textures and colors, as seen in the cake by Honey Crumb Cake Studio, the custom backdrop by Gather Design Company, and the paper goods and signage created by Dahlia Press and Letters By Ellen. Blue Rose Photography captured all the details of this two-day event.
