Malea & Cole’s San Juan Island Wedding

Malea and Cole met their Senior Year of High School. They attended High School Prom together and a month later Cole asked Malea to be his girlfriend!  His first, last and only. After High School they dated long-distance for a year as Malea went to college in Arizona (ASU), while Cole went to Oregon (OSU) for his first year. The following year Cole became a Sun Devil and transferred to ASU to be with Malea where they graduated together in 2017. Fast forward to the date of the proposal, Cole proposed at sunset on the cliffs of Shaw island at his families beach house. Afterwards the surprises continued with all of their closest family and friends hiding in the garage to celebrate their engagement! The San Juan Islands were the obvious choice for their wedding day as Malea and Cole fell in love during their first trip together as they sailed through the San Juan Islands and Malea’s family has a home off Westcott Bay. Playing nod to the location, Malea and Cole incorporated the natural beauty of the surrounding area with a beach inspired wedding complete with lush greenery and cream, blush and light blue floral throughout the waterfront property. As guests walked along the waterfront from the parking area to the ceremony area signs telling the story of their love story dotted the pathway. 

Local musician Oliver Stausser played in the background as friends and family arrived and were greeted with Sparkling Wine before the ceremony began.

The focal piece of the ceremony was a driftwood arbor and a stage built by Malea’s Father. With the seal of a kiss, Malea and Cole were “Just Married!” With a group photo complete, signature drinks and appetizers were served. A Moscow Mule for Malea and a Whiskey Sour for Cole. Appetizers of Crab in Lettuce Wraps, Caprese Bruschetta and Shrimp Kabobs were enjoyed! It was a labor of Love as Malea’s grandpa had hand built this wooden canoe which would serve as a beverage holder for non alcoholic beverages. With the dinner hour here, friends and family found their seats among tables that were adorned with ivory linens and set with lush floral arrangements and place settings complete with gold rimmed cream chargers and ivory napkins. With the wedding party and newly weds announced, a dinner buffet of seasonal favorites was served! After toasts filled with laughter and tears, Malea and Cole cut their wedding cake and hit the dance floor for their first dance. And a celebration isn’t complete without a surprise performance by Malea and Cole’s parents. Too good! Taking a break from the dance floor Malea and Cole celebrated with a sparkler “send-off” before making their way back on the dance floor for the bouquet toss and garter toss. After another hour of dessert and dancing guests made their way down to the waterfront as they sent their well wishes to Malea and Cole as they headed off on a row boat for a night on the water of an awaiting larger boat! I have to jump in and echo Kim’s comments, we are so full of gratitude and appreciation for all of your work!  Your planning, attention to detail, and special touches were top notch.  I can’t even count how many people have texted, phoned and emailed (messages still coming in this morning!), saying it was by far the best wedding they’ve ever attended.  The descriptor “EPIC” is on repeat!! Huge thanks to you both, Laura (Mother of Groom)

Dan & Robyn ~ Swiftwater Cellars Summer Wedding

dramatic-black-and-white-bridal-portrait

Last summer Dan & Robyn hosted one epic wedding at Swiftwater Cellars! From the moment guests arrived at Suncadia Resort and were greeted with custom welcome gifts featuring their favorite things (yes, a bottle of Veuve included) to the last dance that lead to a sparkler send-off out front of Swiftwater Cellars this was a wedding we will never forget! Our favorite details included the mini terrariums at each place setting that doubled as a favor and a place card holder; the first course duo plate that included Robyn’s favorite clam chowder and the always popular caesar salad; and not to forget the dessert bar by Dianne’s Delights that boasted just about every dessert you could imagine! strapless-beaded-wedding-gown-hanging-in-the-window bride-and-bridesmaids-in-silk-robes wedding-rings-in-pink-flowers bride-in-strapless-gown-with-pink-and-red-bouquet bride-with-bouquet-looking-over-her-shoulder bride-and-groom-first-look bridal-portraits-at-swiftwater-cellars-summer-wedding bride-and-groom-in-silhouette bridal-portraits bridal-portraits bride-holding-gift-wrapped-in-silver-paper-with-a-purple-ribbon bride-gifts-groom-with-a-rolex engraved-rolex-groom-gift bridal-portraits-in-swiftwater-cellars bridal-portraits-in-swiftwater-cellars dramatic-black-and-white-bridal-portrait wedding-party-group-shot welcome-sign   wedding-reception-signage welcome-signs   guest-enjoy-charcuterie-at-reception large-bottle-of-red-wine    pink-and-red-flowers-and-engraved-napkins wedding-ceremony-site-and-flower-petals wedding-program-in-pink-roses unplugged-wedding-sign father-walking-daughter-down-the-aisle ceremony-at-swiftwater-cellars-summer-wedding ceremony-at-swiftwater-cellars-summer-wedding ceremony-at-swiftwater-cellars-summer-wedding wedding-lisence wedding-reception-tables wedding-reception-tables wedding-reception-tables wedding-reception-tables wedding-reception-tables wedding-reception-kids-tables golden-glowing-candles bride-and-groom-make-their-entrance soup-and-salad-course bride-and-groom-in-silhouette sunset-bridal-portraits-kiss-and-dip sunset-bridal-portraits-rings champagne-toasts-and-speeches champagne-toasts-and-speeches wedding-cakes-and-desserts wedding-cakes-and-desserts wedding-cakes-and-desserts wedding-cakes-and-desserts wedding-cakes-and-desserts wedding-cakes-and-desserts cutting-the-cake wedding-reception-mood-lighting first-dance first-dance first-dance wedding-dancing

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
