With Halloween their favorite holiday, Lisa and Karen chose the night before Halloween for their intimate wedding celebration at Salish Lodge & Spa overlooking Snoqualmie Falls. Surrounded by twenty two of their nearest and dearest a magical fall evening was had. Romance, candlelight, lush fall floral and a sprinkle of “nerdiness” made for one beautiful evening. Tones of peach, blush, creams, soft orange and garden greenery filled the ceremony area on the outdoor terrace and inside on the u-shaped reception tables. Details captured by La Vie Photography.
Karen & Lisa both incorporated a feather from their bird Petrie as their something blue.
Petals to toss after they become Mrs & Mrs!
A trio of tray passed appetizers were enjoyed during cocktail hour. Fried chicken and waffles with bourbon bacon jam; white cheddar mac and cheese “arancini” and garlic crostinis with chèvre, roasted tomato and basil were enjoyed!
Place settings featured place cards tied onto mini white pumpkins, wood chargers with custom menus tucked into pocket folded napkins and favors of Salish Lodge Honey and custom coasters noting the brides wedding date.
Can we talk about the menu? Yum!
First Course: butternut squash and apple bisque served alongside bread from Essential Baking Company.
Second Course: mixed baby lettuces with shaved seasonal vegetables and a champagne vinaigrette.
Entree Courses: pan roasted chicken or cedar planked pacific northwest salmon or an eggplant cannelloni.
With the night still young, Lisa, Karen and their loved ones were off to Snoqualmie Casino for some post wedding fun and gambling!
“Thanks again for all your help. We really appreciate all you did for us. Very best, Lisa”

Toby and Sarah’s love story began as Sarah was taking her dog Peanut for a walk. A few chance meetings between walking dogs and finding lost dogs led to their Rainier Club Wedding this past January. With only 2.5 months of planning Sarah and Toby leaned on their wedding planner, BreeAnn Gale of Pink Blossom Events, to pull together a top-notch team of wedding vendors and one elegant wedding! It was all about the details and ensuring the guest experience was forefront. As guests arrived that afternoon at The Rainier Club they were greeted with a signature cocktail and a duo playing upbeat tunes as they made their way up the candlelight stairs to the ceremony. Following the ceremony guests mingled in the Rainier Room which featured a photo booth, live jazz and a not to miss lamb station in the Rainier Room fireplace! Following a plated dinner in the Heritage Room guests moved back into the Rainier Room for dancing, dessert and more fun! A dance off between the bridal party ensured one lucky nephew was sent home with a GoPro! Congratulations Sarah & Toby! Photos by La Vie Photography.
BreeAnn Gale is off-the-charts amazing. Our challenge was putting together an elegant black-tie wedding and reception for 160 friends and family in only two months. Choosing a venue, printing invites, menus, place sitting, programs, etc., flowers, dinner, a jazz ensemble, live classic music, a top notch DJ. We relied and BreeAnn and her extensive collection of top-notch vendors to make the entire night magical…..and it was. BreeAnn is an excellent communicator and changes were always carefully considered and implanted into the wedding plan in a complete and seamless way. I cannot recommend her highly enough ~ Toby
