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

Kara & Nicholas ~ Rose Garden & Edgewater Wedding

bridal-portraits

Kara & Nicholas’ wedding day began at The Edgewater where they shared their first look then headed off to Woodland Park Zoo to visit the penguins and take a ride on the carousel before saying their I Do’s in the Rose Garden! The Rose Garden was in full bloom as guests arrived that afternoon. As the ceremony got underway the couple’s nieces and nephews processed down the aisle, handing both the couples mothers and grandmother each a mini bouquet. During the ceremony Kara and Nicholas wrote love letters to each other to read at a future date along with ‘adventure’ notes which described adventures that they want to experience together. After the ceremony loved ones wandered the rose gardens and had the opportunity to get up close to a Northern Saw-whet Owl.  Post ceremony Kara surprised Nicholas with a Rolls Royce as they led the way to The Edgewater for their reception. A Wishing Tree, handmade by the bride, featured tree ‘bark’ crafted from book pages that grew out of a stack of books.  The reception featured a few quirky German traditions as well as custom artwork and signage to carry through the woodland creature theme. Our favorite piece included the Escort chalkboard that was displayed on a tall log cross-section correlating to the guest tables named after the couple’s favorite literary novels. Wildflower centerpieces were paired with book-related decor, stump rounds, fresh moss and votives. Plantable paper foxes that would soon sprout wildflowers were give as favors.  Dancing, board games and s’mores under the stars caped off one fantastic wedding day!

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

Julie & Walter ~ Summer Wedding at UW Center for Urban Horticulture

sunset_bridal_portraits

Julie and Walter’s story begins at a VA medical center. It might not be the first place you think of when you think ‘romance.’ Still, love can happen in peculiar places, and in this case they met within the walls of the Primary Care Clinic. It happened over four years ago. For those who don’t know, Julie is a physician with a social worker’s heart; Walter is a social worker who once played a physician on stage. They both do their work with focus, compassion and gusto. Maybe it’s that enthusiasm they first noticed in each other. As anyone who works in a busy, stressful place will tell you, it is risky to ask a coworker out on a date, even if only for a dog walk or an evening of Karaoke with coworkers. Still that’s how their romance started—what is life if not a gamble?

For those of you who don’t know, Walter was Julie’s assigned social worker. Indeed, he was. Until he fired her, that is. You see, Walter felt a little dizzy when they worked together. And Julie relied on her social worker a lot, rarely missing an opportunity to refer a homeless patient or a distressed caregiver. Walter had to compose himself after meetings with Dr. Silverman—focus was a challenge after those encounters. So Walter met with his supervisor and requested a change. “Dr. Silverman gives me too much work,” he lied. “I need to disperse my efforts. She’s not the only doctor I work with, you know. She can’t rule my time.” Once separated from the tension, though, he couldn’t separate her from his thoughts. Action was needed. In one of those impulses that changes the course of lives, Walter asked Julie out.

On a blustery Saturday morning, Walter and Julie took their dogs, Buddy and Louie, for a walk around Seward Park. And the rest, as they say, is history. After a year spent together hiking, skiing, backpacking, traveling, sharing poetry and music, dancing, cooking and baseball and spending time with friends and family they married on July 7, 2017 at the UW Center for Urban Horticulture. bride_hugging_mom bride_getting_ready

While Julie wanted a more simplistic all white wedding, Walter wished for all the colors under the sun. And so the first of compromises in a marriage was had, white linens for Julie with bright floral for Walter. On a beautiful July summer day, Julie and Walter married in the round, under the Chuppah, as loved ones watched them repeat their vows. With the breaking of the glass, they were officially wed and it was time to celebrate! As the sounds of a Klezmer Band played guests dined on appetizers, sipped cool beverages and meandered through the tree filled grove. With guests seated under the reception tent, the Rabbi did a blessing over the Challah. A delicious meal broken up with toasts ended as the sounds of a bagpipe led friends and family up to the McVay Courtyard where Walter serenaded Julie before taking their first dance as husband and wife. A night of dancing, cake and the Hora were had before wedding guests were shuttled back to their hotel late that evening.  Photos by Lucas Mobley Photography groom_getting_ready first_look first_look first_look first_look first_look ketubah family_photos family_photos family_photos ketubah__and_marriage_license_signing ketubah__and_marriage_license_signing ketubah__and_marriage_license_signing ketubah__and_marriage_license_signing ketubah__and_marriage_license_signing welcome_sign Huppa wedding_ceremony_site huppa_details wedding_ceremony boys_at_wedding_ceremony bride_walking_down_the_aisle jewish_wedding_ceremony stomping_the_glass jewish_wedding_ceremony cocktail_hour_site passed_appetizers Klezmer_band cocktail_hour_under_trees wedding_guests_mingle wedding_guests_mingle wedding_guests_mingle sunset_bridal_portraits sunset_bridal_portraits sunset_bridal_portraits challah_bread reception_table_details reception_table_details wedding_toasts_and_speeches wedding_toasts_and_speeches wedding_toasts_and_speeches wedding_toasts_and_speeches wedding_toasts_and_speeches bagpiper_leading_guests cake_details cake_cutting

Tonight we’re dreaming of summer love and looking back over one romantic garden wedding at Jardin del Sol captured by Alante Photography. Kristine and Curtis had a vision for their wedding and we were honored to be the planning and designing team making their dreams come to reality! Family and friends were the focus that warm summer day as they tied the knot. One of our favorite additions were the homemade pickles that Kristine spent countless hours in the kitchen crafting to ensure their guests left with something from their heart!
