Les & Terry’s Ray’s Boathouse Jewish Wedding

After two days of celebrations leading up to the big day, Terry and Les made sure all of their loved ones were included in their intimate wedding at Ray’s highlighting the Pacific Northwest and orchids, Terry’s favorite. With their best friends by their side, Les’ son and his girlfriend played the violin and cello while their granddaughters led the way for Terry’s entrance as she was escorted down the aisle by her brother. After the breaking of the glass, Mazel Tov!, Les joined the duo, playing the clarinet for a few tunes as guests feasted on fresh oysters and other PNW inspired appetizers. Moving inside for dinner a plated meal incorporating their favorite dishes from Ray’s was highlighted with toasts, a surprise unicorn birthday cake for one of their granddaughter’s, the most stunning wedding cake as well as the horah all captured by Barbie Hull Photography.

Abby & Rishi’s IslandWood Fusion Wedding

What do you do when you have loads of friends traveling from around the country to your wedding? You invite them all to join you for a full weekend of events together! Abby and Rishi selected IslandWood on Bainbridge Island, just a short ferry ride away from downtown Seattle, for their wedding weekend and created an epic weekend, reminiscent of summer camp, sure to remember for years to come! The weekend which blended Abby’s Jewish heritage and Rishi’s Hindu heritage, featured a Welcome Bonfire complete with s’mores, Henna and their favorite popsicles, King of Pops. Saturday was all about connecting with friends and family as there were nature hikes, games, cooking classes and lots of laughter and conversations over breakfast and lunch before guests celebrated Abby & Rishi’s love! The weekend ended after a farewell breakfast Sunday morning.

The details and personal touches were around all weekend! We were most impressed with the sewing skills of Abby and her Mother as not only did her mom sew all of the wedding party members dresses but Abby refashioned her mother’s wedding dress into something her very own – well done!

 

After signing the marriage license and Ketubah, it was time to marry! The ceremony, which incorporated elements of Abby’s Jewish and Rishi’s Hindu heritage, was officiated by two of their dearest friends. During the ceremony Abby and Rishi stood under a canopy which represented the Jewish chuppah and a Hindu Mandap. The canopy was adorned with bright floral (oranges, deep coral, fuchsia pink and magenta tones) and sari’s gathered by Rishi’s family. In the Jewish tradition, the chuppah is open on all four sides to represent the openness and hospitality of a home; in Hindu weddings the Mandap represents the Temple. When Abby and Rishi processed into the ceremony they circled each other seven times before entering the chuppah/mandap. The circling, which is common to both Hindu and Jewish wedding ceremonies, is significant in both Hindu ceremonies (represents a vow to pursue four purposes of life) and Jewish ceremonies (symbolizes the creation of a household that protects and supports one another).    

Abby and Rishi’s parents took part in lighting both the Agni and the Havdalah candle. The fire is a traditional part of a Hindu ceremony representing the Hindu god Agni who bears witness to the wedding while the Havdalah candle is lit at sunset (we can pretend it was lit at sunset) to signify the end of Shabbat, the Jewish holy day.

At the end of the ceremony, Rishi and Abby took seven steps while the seven Jewish blessings were recited. To end, they broke the glass, a Jewish tradition which expresses that even in the happiest moments, we want to recognize the pain and sadness in our world. Mazel Tov!

Hi Andrea and BreeAnn! Thank you so much for everything, we had an incredible weekend. We are still basking in the magic of last weekend and are finding it hard to come back to reality. Everything was truly a dream and even the minor hiccups make memorable parts of the story! Andrea and Linda were fantastic and so on top of things that we were able to relax and enjoy ourselves and our family and friends. No small feat at such a large venue! Cheers, Abby + Rishi

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.

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.
