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

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.

Family Reunion at The Resort at Port Ludlow

This August we had the honor of planning a family reunion at The Resort at Port Ludlow for one lucky family. We were involved in all the details from the selection of the hotel to assigning rooms and activities to the design throughout the weekend. With the hotel bought out for the weekend guests arrived Friday afternoon and checked into their rooms where a Welcome Bag filed with local goodies and a Welcome Packet noting the activities ahead were waiting. Kids reunited in the Kids Room where they had their own kids buffet and all the fixings for a movie night. Adults caught up over welcome cocktails and live music followed by the most delicious family style dinner that left each guest knowing that this would be a weekend to remember!
Saturday morning a few family members enjoyed a round of golf at the Port Ludlow Golf Course while most were chauffeured to Port Townsend for a private Whale Watching Charter where they saw humpback whales, seals, birds and more! Saturday afternoon was spent relaxing at the Resort or taking a spin around the Marina in a kayak or on a stand up paddleboard prior to the night’s Salmon Potlatch Dinner which was the main event of the weekend.

Cindy Marie Photography captured all the fun that evening as the night kicked off with live music, lawn games, snaps in the photo booth, a group photo with Port Ludlow Marina as the backdrop, a traditional Salmon Potlatch Dinner finished with ice cream sundaes and cookies. Not to miss s’mores around the fire at the Marina.
 
   
   
Sunday morning family members said their goodbyes and made plans for more frequent get together as they enjoyed one last farewell brunch.

European Market | Snohomish Wedding Tour

Inspired by the European Markets and baskets full of flowers we worked with Designs by Courtney and a team of local vendors to pull our vision to life at the always stunning Jardin del Sol for the Snohomish Wedding Tour.  Our favorite highlights included a terracotta guestbook plate for guests to sign as they grabbed a terracotta plate full of lavender buds to toss as the Newlyweds kissed post ceremony. The macrame and potted plant chandelier hanging over the head table that featured a lush floral runner complete with artichokes and floral in peaches, pinks and oranges was a feast for the eyes! Enhancing the guest experience is always key and at this event guests could create their own flower crowns or create their own floral bouquets in addition to simply enjoying a long chat around the fire.  Follow along as B.Jones Photography captures all of the highlights!

Mara & Christian’s Spring Wedding at JM Cellars

We love when couples choose live music for their wedding and Mara and Christian hit the mark with both strings for the ceremony and cocktail hour followed by dueling pianos for their April JM Cellars wedding. To highlight the season they choose to include tulips in with their floral arrangements which fit perfectly with the rain showers that fell that morning. Luckily the skies cleared and a rain free ceremony and reception was held! Photos by Carol Harrold Photography.

Jardin del Sol Secret Garden Wedding

When we met with Alex her dream wedding was a secret garden with lots of flowers, delicious food and a stunning cake! Plus a few randomly hidden gnomes which were her favorite. One fall day this past September her dream came true! Lush purple floral accented with plenty of greenery and succulents set the stage for a secret garden wedding at Jardin del Sol. One could even find a hidden gnome on the back of the wedding cake. The details of one beautiful wedding was captured by Jenny GG Photography.

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
