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.

Celebration of Life ~ Bravern Signature Residences, Bellevue

cocktail_and_bartender

As an event planner the greatest accomplishment is creating an event that truly speaks to your client and leaves a long lasting memory for both the guests and the host. When I received a call from Kathy she had recently lost her husband and was not sure she wanted a Celebration of Life but knew that this was something she needed to do for their family, friends and colleagues as they were asking for closure. With less than two months of lead time, a lot for a Celebration of Life, and knowing he was a sharp dresser, a seeker of fine shoes and nice ties and enjoyed a good scotch I set forth planning a Celebration of Life that would allow eighty five loved ones a chance to celebrate his life and enjoy a night of only the finest as that is what Steve would have wanted!

As the night came to an end one could not have found a better way to pay tribute. From the shoe shine station to ensure guests left with a better pair of shoes to bars featuring his private collection of single scotch malt whiskey served by an man in a kilt to a menu showcasing his favorite foods and not to mentioned a display of his prized shoes asking; Cinderfella if the shoe fits, wear it home. Not a detail was missed.

As the planner of this celebration I took pride in knowing that I had done my absolute best to honor a man that I had never met in person. When I first met with my client, there were no plans beyond a venue, a date and a desired caterer and she trusted me to become the guidance and vision she needed to pull off this event. Through planning with his wife and speaking with his treasured friends and family I couldn’t help but feel that I knew him in every sense and showcased a life that most only dream of fulfilling.

…I simply have no words!  …I will gush in a much more professional manner when I’ve had some sleep.  It was truly the nicest, loveliest, beautiful, and meaningful party I have ever been to.  The feedback from attendees and vendors was so positive.  You have done a superb job and Ravan represented you and your company to the highest degree.  ~ Kathy
