Maya & Laura ~ Lakedale Resort Wedding, San Juan Island

brides-nuzzle-in-forest

With a love of the outdoors (Maya proposed on the first day of an eight-day backpacking trip over the Wonderland Trail, the 96 miles around Mount Rainer, at sunset), we recommended Maya and Laura checkout Lakedale Resort on San Juan Island for their wedding venue and we are glad we did as Lakedale Resort provided the perfect setting for a wedding weekend celebrating the love of these two women. Our favorite details of the wedding included the personal touches from the welcome gifts they created that included a custom embroidered blanket to the ceremony structure built by Maya’s family using logs from Lakedale Resort; to the traditional Ukranian wedding bread highlighting Maya’s family heritage; to their sisters standing for them in addition to Laura’s sister who officiated their wedding day; as well as the surprise performance by Laura who played the guitar and sang a song dedicated to Maya as she knows how much Laura loves to hear her sing.

BreeAnn you’re fantastic! We had no idea how much you were going to take care of for us and it was absolutely amazing. Could not have pulled it off without you!!! Seriously, we weren’t even going to have heaters. 🙂 – Maya

Katie & Arin ~ Sodo Park Wedding, Seattle

bridal_portraits

Katie and Arin’s Sodo Park wedding told the story of one beautiful beginning! They day started with getting ready at the Fairmont Olympic and ended with an epic dance party featuring Bamboo Beats Video DJ experience which incorporated live music videos and movie clips on the dance floor.  Katie and Arin’s wedding featured a number of personal touches including their favorite date night activity, ping pong, as well as Katie’s love of making sure everything was beautiful which included the gorgeous floral by Floressence!  To ensure guests were a piece of their new beginning they invited guests to light their own individual candle while they made a wish or prayer for the couple before being seated for the ceremony. These two were so in love and we were honored to be their wedding planner and designer, as we were able to witness the beginning of a love story for the ages!

BreeAnn , words can hardly express how thankful we are for you. You have been so wonderful, gracious and patient through this journey with us. The best choice we made (apart from picking each other) was picking you! We have loved working with you and will move on from this day with a little sadness knowing that we won’t get to work with you any longer! You really were made for this job and will think of you in the future when we are in need of Seattle’s best planner! Thank you again for everything! XO Katie & Arin
