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.

Dearest BreeAnn, Thank you x 1000 for hosting me here in Seattle. I’m blown away by attention to detail and how much thought went into this class. I am forever grateful. Looking forward to two amazing days sketching together! XO, Mary

Micaela & Billy ~ Seattle Waterfront Wedding

kiss-at-seattle-waterfront-wedding-ceremony

High school sweethearts, Billy and Micaela were married on the shores of Lake Washington at a private home by Billy’s grandfather one beautiful summer day. After working with Billy and Micaela for the eight months leading up to their big day we were simply enamored by all the love surrounding them. A crisp white palette accented by tropical palms set the stage for an elegant and modern celebration. One of our favorite touches to the wedding was when we passed around anniversary cards to each of the dinner tables asking each guest to write a message that the couple could open up on their 1st, 2nd or event 15th wedding anniversary! Billy was also adamant about having live music at the wedding (we couldn’t agree more) and Blue Wave Band surpassed expectations! Photos by Sullivan & Sullivan Photography.

BreeAnn, thank you for making our wedding day so special and for your months of hard work planning. Without you we would never have been able to pull off the wedding of our dreams that unfolded this past Saturday. You are amazing at what you do and Micaela and I are so appreciative to have been able to work with you. Thank you so much once again for all your hard work. -Micaela and Billy

Michael & Kevin ~ Alderbrook Resort Wedding

sunset-portraits-bride-and-groom

It was a fairy-tale wedding as Kevin and Michael were married at Alderbrook Resort & Spa one gorgeous spring afternoon! With life pulling them in all directions and living out of state, Kevin and Micheal reached out to us to plan and design their dream wedding day which took place not too far from Kevin’s family home on the Hood Canal. Incorporating a romantic Pacific Northwest vibe filled with lush floral, the sounds of string music and their love of tea the details were endless! One of our favorite moments of the day was the rowboat send-off which mimicked Michael’s first trip out to Alderbrook Resort when Kevin rowed her down the Hood Canal to Alderbrook for lunch before heading back to his family home. What love! Follow along as the images from Alante Photography tell the story of one romantic wedding day all ending with sunset photos at Alderbrook Golf & Yacht Club – a bonus when your wedding celebration ends in the late afternoon! white-wedding-boutineers white-wedding-boutineers wedding-invitations-and-rings-on-a-bed-of-flowers first-look close-up-of-bride-holding-white-pink-and-yellow-bouquet   bride-and-groom-walking-on-dock-at-alderbrook   bride-and-groom-on-dock-at-alderbrook   bride-and-groom-on-dock-at-alderbrook   bride-holidng-yellow-flowers   bridal-party-on-dock-at-alderbrook bride-and-bridesmaids-holding-yellow-flowers guest-book-signage wedding-ceremony-setup-at-alderbrook bride-grips-fathers-arm groom-watching-bride-walk-down-the-aisle wedding-ceremony-at-alderbrook   yellow-and-pink-flowers-on-tables wedding-toasts-and-speeches wedding-toasts-and-speeches wedding-toasts-and-speeches   wedding-cake-and-dessert   cake-cutting   first-dance   wedding-dances wedding-getaway-boat bride-and-groom-walk-down-dock-to-boat bride-and-groom-kissing-in-wedding-getaway-boat sunset-portraits-bride-and-groom sunset-portraits-bride-and-groom sunset-portraits-bride-and-groom sunset-portraits-bride-and-groom

BreeAnn, words cannot express the gratitude we have for all you have done. You simplified the wedding planning for Michael and Kevin during an overwhelming time of their lives and they are beaming with joy over how wonderful all the various events have unfolded. You also made the “mother-of-the-bride” duties non-existent for me. For that I will be forever grateful! Sincerely, Tamara

Alex & Aaron ~ San Juan Island, Jewish Wedding

bride_and_groom_first_look_and_bridal_portraits

We had the honor of planning Alex and Aaron’s San Juan Island wedding held at Alex’s family cabin overlooking Westcott Bay, not too far from Roche Harbor Resort, last summer. Two years of planning went into one magical wedding weekend that highlighted the love of their sweet dog Penny and the surrounding San Juan Islands which held fond memories for Alex & Aaron as well as Alex’s entire family. Soft blues and greens were accented by touches of sea glass throughout the property including sea glass escort cards with calligraphy by Letters by Ellen. One of our favorite pieces of the wedding was the driftwood chuppah built by Bloom San Juan and accented with floral by Robin’s Nest. Thank you Katie Parra Photography for capturing every detail of one unforgettable wedding day!

BreeAnn was a fabulous wedding planner. I am so happy that I chose her to help in coordinating our wedding. She was so well organized and helpful and creative with her suggestions. We ended up doing a backyard style wedding and I know that I would never have been able to pull it off without BreeAnn’s help. She was not only patient and professional during the planning process, but she made the day of our actual wedding completely stress free. I felt so calm and confident that BreeAnn would handle any problems that might come up and I ended up having a magnificent day. I would highly recommend working with her. Thank you so much BreeAnn! ~ Alex
